[Food Tasting] Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe at Aljunied

Located within 15 minutes walk from Aljunied MRT station is this authentic Thai food eatery known as Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe. The size of about one full coffee shop, Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe serves authentic Thai Cuisines and Thai Mookata in a laid back and casual atmosphere.

Spicy Thai - Thai Cafe cooking style is mainly influenced by the North Eastern Thailand, particularly from Isan. Food from that region are generally richer and spicier as it is a quicker way to fill up the stomach of the farmers there. The chefs from Thailand also used charcoal for their soup and even have their own-made sauces for different dishes. 

Started off with some drinks to quench our thirst. We had Bandung, Thai Milk Tea and Ice Lemongrass. The Bandung doesn't taste sweet and milky like the usual Bandung I had. 

Fish Maw Crab Meat Abalone Soup in Coconut $28

The soup is not too thick or starchy and it's served in the coconut shell so after you've finished the fish maw, crab meat, abalone and mushroom, you still get to eat the flesh of the coconut. Suitable for sharing between two to three person.

Thai Style Otak (Hommok) $18

Not your typical Otak that is wrapped in banana leaves but this is another dish that is served in a coconut husk. It's cooked with prawns, squids and coconut flesh. It's a burst of flavours between the spiciness of the otah as well as the sweetness of the coconut flesh. A really unique dish.

Thai Walking Cat Fish with Spicy Lemon Soup $35

We were told that cat fish was chosen as this dish as the meat of the fish will remains soft even after cooking for a long time. Beside that, cat fish also have natural collagen which is good for our skin. This dish can be changed to sea bass too. Sour and spicy, I think this will goes well with plain rice. I don't think it's common as it's actually my first time eating a cat fish!

Thai Basil Crab (Seasonal Price)

The freshness of the crab meat and the right amount of spiciness for the seasoning makes this one of my favourite dish.

BBQ Pork Belly $18

Every piece of the BBQ Pork Belly has the right balance of lean meat and tender juicy fat. It has a nice caramelised and smoky taste to it. Another of my favourite and must-try dish.

Lala Bee Hoon $18

Beside the cat fish, this Lala Bee Hoon is another dish that is really spicy. It's simply appetizing and delicious.

Deep Fried Kang Kong with Special Thai Sauce $10

This is one very addictive dish that we all loved. I am pretty amazed that my favourite vegetable can be turned into a cracker snack. So crispy, crunchy and tasty and goes very well with their special home made sauce.

Thai Dill Omelette (Cha Om) $10

For those who loves egg omelette, you would love this dish. It's your common omelette dish.

Cold Tofu with Special Thai Seafood Sauce $15

Another of my favourite, the seafood sauce brings out the whole flavour of a simple tofu dish. The tofu is soft and easy to eat.

An overview of the food that was shared among us. Was also told that their fish cake is green in colour as green curry powder was used and they have many other wide selections of food for ordering that is suitable for the whole family regardless of age. There's also kids favourite Fried Chicken Wings and there's three different type of Tom Yum Soup - Red, White and Coconut. Definitely worth making a second trip down to try the rest of these interesting dishes.

We also had a nice chat with the owner Mr Ron. He shared his passion towards Thai cuisine and hopes that Singaporean get to taste authentic Thai food from his restaurant. This outlet he opened is open everyday with no GST and no service charge. Thank you for the invite and hosting us on 4th August 16.
