SuanThai Restaurant @ Killiney Road

Finally, I've discovered a gem right in the middle of Orchard Road! This Thai restaurant really serve authentic Thai food! I spotted 2 Thai chefs coming out from the kitchen! So we decided to celebrate a friend's birthday there!

We had Tom Yum Seafood soup. The authentic Tom Yum should be clear soup instead of in chili red. It should be sour rather than spicy! Hmmm.... so appetizing!

We ordered the Thai Tang Hoon Salad, very authentic! I really like the peanut and spicy sauce, a perfect combination.

We ordered 2 veg dishes as we like veg, Thai Baby Kailan with salted fish and Stir-fry Mixed Veg. Both are very tasty and not over-fried. The veg retained its crunchiness.

We had the Pad Thai with prawns. The fine kway teow are stir-fry with fish sauce and eggs. I like the fresh peanuts. Very authentic! So whenever I have craving for Thai food, I will drop by this place for a meal! 

The rest wanted to try the Black Olive Rice. The rice is quite average as the olive taste is not that strong.

We ordered the Steamed Seabass with chilli and lime. A bit disappointed as the fish is not that fresh but the sauce is very nice. All parts of the fish were clean-up as we have a few teochews among the group!


We also have a few chilli queen so we finished all the chilli sauce as well!

After all the spicy food, we ordered Thai coconut to neutralize our system! We also had Red Ruby for desserts. What a delicious meal! We'll be back to try out other dishes!

Sin Swee Kee Chicken Rice

I have received some feedback that I only do food reviews on resturants. Well, I will try my best  to cover both restaurants food and local food. To be honest, I rather eat a good local food anytime! If you know me, you will know that I must get my Chicken Rice fix quite regularly! Whenever I travel overseas, the first thing that I crave for when I returned back to Singpore is Chciken Rice! So far, I have tried Chicken Rice in Australia and Hong Kong and none is comparable to the authentic chicken rice in Singapore!

So when my Aussie friends arrived in Singapore, I would recommend and bring them to try Sin Swee Kee Hainanese Chicken Rice

The chicken rice is usually served with dark soya sauce, chilli sauce and minched ginger with minched spring onions. That's why it's green in colour!

There are some side dishes like veg, tofu and Ngoh Hiang to go with the chicken rice.

The rice is really fragrant and tasty. It's not too oily. I think the proportion of the chicken stock, water and rice must be just nice.

They have the steamed or roast chicken. Of course, I ordered the steamed chicken! The meat is so tender and the sauce so tasty!

In search of good Thai food in Singapore....

 After returning from my Bangkok trip, I was still craving for good Thai authentic food. I discovered that the Kopitiam at Tiong Bahru Plaza served authentic Thai food! So I ordered the Stir-fry beef with basil leaves to try! The beef is tasty and marinated with a bit of curry! The Beef noodles soup taste more like the Vietnamese style. The egg omelettee is tasty but not enough ingredients. For foodcourt prices, the dishes are tasty and decent enough!
