Food Review: Spicy Thai Thai Cafe at Aljunied

 
Call me crazy but my love for food has made me travel for food and I queue for food regardless of how far the distance can be. Few weeks ago, along with Hazel, Wilson, Ian, Pauline and J, we made our way to a media tasting at Spicy Thai Thai Cafe.

Deep Fried Kang Kong with Special Thai Sauce ($10)

If you are having a hard time coaxing your kids to eat their greens, try this. Deep fried with thin batter, this tastes nothing like greens. I like the light crispy texture of the kang kong which made it rather addictive with the mildly spicy special thai sauce. A mug of beer would go perfectly with it. Give me a Singha beer somebody!

Dill Pattie Omelette aka Cha Om ($8)

If you wanted something more unique as compared to usual omelette, try Cha Om. The egg is done to perfection in thai style. It is crispy on the outside with soft and fluffy interior. I like how the dill added a touch of crunchiness to the fluffy interior.

Basil Black Pepper Crab (Seasonal Price)
Basil Mussels ($15)
Lala Bee Hoon ($18)

There is a good variety of shellfish dishes available but amongst them, the lala bee hoon stole my heart. A good mix of flavour, hint of spiciness in the peppery flavourful broth. I like how the bee hoon aka rice vermicelli soaked up the flavour and the wok hei from the broth. This is definitely a must order!

Chilli Garlic Red Emperor Snapper (Seasonal Price)
Thai Walking Cat Fish with Spicy Lemon Soup ($28)

Both the dishes are well executed with lotsa the characteristics of Thai cuisine (spiciness, sourness, saltiness and sweetness). While both dishes reminded me of Tom Yum soup, the Chilli Garlic Red Emperor Snapper has a more garlicky flavour. I would recommend this dish best eaten as quickly as possible. If you prefer something more refreshing and could let you take your own sweet time to savour, choose the Thai Walking Cat Fish.

BBQ Pork Neck ($10)

Not your usual Char Siew, the meat is tender with a aftertaste of smokiness (in the good way). For the portion served, I really think it is value for money.

Deep Fried Pork Belly with Garlic ($12)

One of J’s favourite, the pork belly is fried to golden brown. The garlic bits add a nice touch of flavour and texture to the dish. IMO, this is better to go with some beer. lol

Lemongrass Jelly with Aloe Vera Cubes & Calamansi ($2.50)
Thai Red Rudy ($3.50)
There is always space for desserts. The desserts here are easy to the pocket and homemade. Though there is not much wow factor for the desserts, I am happy to end the meal with a sweet note.
Everything on the menu is nett priced and the serving portion is reasonable and affordable.The menu is  really extensive. I have even spotted Mookata aka thai steamboat on the menu. So if you are in for some travelling (approx. 15 mins walk from MRT)  to have some good thai food, do give Spicy Thai Thai Cafe a try.
