So excited when we are re-invited to one of our favorites Thai restaurant, @Siam Thai. Located in the heart of CBD, it makes a wonderful choice for dine in, especially with a big group. They introduced us to a set of new menus from new chef as well.
The staff has prepared the new menu for us for our visit this time. We only chose our drinks and menu – a “Feed Us” session this time 🙂 Something sweet needed this time so we ordered their classic Cha Nom Yen (Thai milk tea) and Thai Pink Milk. The Pink Milk has rosy hint in the taste and overall not too sweet we like it 🙂
So here’s our dinner menu:
- Look shin ping (Grilled pork and fish meatballs – 2 skewers) – $5.
Simple appetizer grilled to have grilled fragrant dipped with sweet chilli sauce.
So tender and chewy. Each skewer has three meatballs.
- Yum ped yam nam tok (Grilled duck salad) – $18.50.
Roasted duck salad with Siam dressing topped with sesame oil.
A hint of zesty from the lime and mild chili. Simple and yet refreshing with the coriander and lettuce.
- Tom zap leng (Hot and spicy Thai style pork bones and ribs soup) – $16.50.
This one is the big soup with the pork bones and ribs inside.
Love all the herbs and the richness of the broth of this soup.
A hint of tanginess from the pickled veggies and herbs. Super fragrant as the soup was served.
Love it to enjoy this with simple white rice in this cold weather.
- Goong ob woon sen (Ginger prawn with glass noodles) – King prawns, fresh garlic, pepper, celery and glass noodles – $24.80.
This is a very rare Thai food which we will find in Thai restaurants. The dish contains king prawns which are cooked perfectly, the meats were so sweet and tender with a hint of garlic and ginger.
Love the glass noodles too which served plain only with herbs but complements the prawns nicely. This is our first time to try this dish.
- Pad kra tiem prik thai beef (garlic & beef stir fry with dark soy) – $18.80
Simple stir fry Thai style with garlic based. The beef was super tender and sliced a bit thin so that it is easy to chew. Perfect to eat with rice too. Love to put the sauce on top of the rice. Yummoo!
And for dessert, we ordered crispy banana roll served with vanilla ice cream -$ 9.50.
The banana was so smooth almost like puree inside the crispy rolls drizzled with caramel sauce. So warm and sweet and just perfect to be paired with vanilla ice cream. Super humble looking banana crispy rolls but we seriously love them.
Love how attentive and quick the service was. As usual, do not forget to check the spiciness level with the wait staff just in case you have low spiciness tolerance. @Siam Thai everything is set to be mild, so you do not need to worry. We love everything in the new menu and look forward to come and try their food again.
Note: We’d like to say thank you to @Siam Thai’s team for having us.
