Lai Thai Kitchen – Serangoon, Singapore


Next on my blog post is this little place I discovered with my mummy one of the days when we were out for lunch. Actually I wanted to eat the braised duck rice just beside this place but it has already closed down. Nevertheless, Lai Thai looked pretty good with simple but neat decor, located below a HDB block.

As our lunch time was quite early and on a weekday afternoon, there weren’t many patrons at the eatery. So we were seated down by a Thai staff, and found out that they have lunch time specials for only $9.90! So we ordered and had a taste of their food.

Set meal menu. Choose your set, choose your dessert and drink. All in for $9,90!
Set meal only available for these times and days.
Phad Thai – Not like what I learnt in Thailand. A little tasteless, lack of the essential palm sugar and tamarind juice for that extra kick.
Green Curry Chicken – Not bad, using the right ingredients of Thai brinjals, sweet basil and kaffir lime leaves. But I reckon still lack of the palm sugar inside.
Namtok Moo $7 – This additional order of grilled pork dish is pretty good and tossed up as a salad dish. Love it.
2 crispy spring rolls per set meal. Need the sweet chilli sauce for taste.
Chendol – Pretty good
Red Rubies – Not bad too!
Thai Milk Tea – Not as strong that I like but it’s alright.
Ice Lemon Grass – Pretty refreshing
