Soi 47

Soi 47,ย 111 King George’s Ave, Singapore 208559.

The Soi 47, which is located at King George’s Ave nearby the Lavender MRT station, is the second branch after the successful one at Lorong 6, Toa Payoh. I was introduced to this Thai restaurant by a food blogger who shared the news about the restaurant’s second branch at King George’s Ave last month.

It opens barely for less than a month, it has a lot of patrons to this restaurant which located closely to the office buildings and HDB neighbourhood. My colleagues and I decided to try out this restaurant a day before the Raya holiday. It was pretty new and less crowded back then ๐Ÿ™‚

One of their signature fish dishes on their menu, the steamed Seabass with Thai lime sauce. It is worth for a try as the sauce is really good and tasty. The fish was well cooked when it was served and slowly heated up by the fire to keeping the fish hot. It does make the sauce slight tastier after that but do not take too long to finish it else the fish will overcook.

I could stop having the fish and the sauce that my colleagues could not finish it ^_^

For the first time, we tried the crispy fried chicken with sweet lime sauce. The thick sauce over the crispy fried chicken maintained it juiciness inside. However, the portion is a bit small for four persons. However, if you order with some other dishes, it is just nice as you can try different dishes in small portion.

The clear Tom Yam with seafood which consists of fried fish, prawns, mussels and cuttlefish cooked with lemongrass and small chilies padi. In my opinion it is better than Beer Thai at Golden Mile Complex. We let the soup kept boiling and it is kicking, however, it is not salty.ย 

Usually we will order the fried kangkung with sambal, the basic one which we can get it anywhere, they do have fried kangkung with garlic. The fragrance of fried garlic made it worthy to go without sambal. You may want to balance your taste with something neutral after having the tom yam soup and the lime sauce.

For dessert, we ordered the sticky mango and a bowl of cold red ruby. Both are favourite and famous Thai desserts. It is using sliced jackfruit and water chestnut coated with red colouring tapioca flour, boiled in the hot water, combined with coconut milk, sugar syrup and ice.

Last but no least, iced Thai milk tea can go with or without. It is not too sweet style as the usual local Thai milk tea does.

Beer Thai House

Address:ย #01-94/96, 5001 Beach Road, Golden Mile Complex, Singapore 199588.

It was an impromptu dinner with a friend after my Microsoft’s talk in the city on the Saturday’s evening. It was a bit rushing for my friend to come over due to the impromptu invitation. While waiting, I decided to hang around the Golden Mile Food court, just located opposite of the Golden Mile Complex, to have a light dinner before my friend arrived. Do I sound like a big eater?

We walked around the first floor of the complex to decide which Thai restaurants to go for our dinner. We settled down at Beer Thai House which is located at the back row shoplots. It is slightly hidden but they have a lot of customers in the restaurant, seemed to be a good Thai restaurant.

We ordered the fried vegetable, a tom yam goong and a steamed fish with the Iced Thai Milk Tea. We wondered why our Thai milk tea looked differently, even before and after we mixed them. For the drink, it was well tasted, not too sweet, able to taste the original Thai milk tea.

Fried Asparagus

The food was served quite fast except for the steamed fish which took quite long, until we thought they have forgotten it and I did not take the picture of the steamed seabass fish when they served us because we were too hungry to wait further.

The fried asparagus was great, delicious, crunchy and generous in portion. With some mushrooms, small sized prawns and carrots fried together with the asparagus, served hot with spring of fried onions, it was a great appetizer for our meal while waiting for the steamed fish.

Tom Yam Goong

Besides the small sized prawns inside the tom yam goong soup, it added fish balls, mushrooms, dried chilies and plenty of the lemongrass. It made the soup having a strong taste of lemongrass which I did not like it that much and we did not finish the soup. What a waste!

Tai Ping

Tai Ping

I went to this restaurant which is located at the Royale Chulan Hotel, KL during the last Ramadan 2010 season. Therefore, there is no crowd at all at this restaurant during the lunch time. This restaurant serves Halal Chinese food.

The chinese tea is free of charge here. Great thing is they give us Jasmine Tea.
Tai PingLet’s see what we have ordered this time. The Fried Rice with Salted Fish for small potion.
Tai PingNext, we ordered the Sweet and Sour Fish Fillet. It is a generous portion of fish fillet and thick sweet and sour sauce.
Tai PingThen, we have cod fish. The Steamed Cod Fish looked rather small portion to us. It is because the cod fish is expensive one? Overall, I quite like this cod fish. Fresh! ๐Ÿ™‚
Tai PingOur last dish is the Chicken with Fried Dry Chillies and Chestnut. I noticed they used the thin-sliced kiwi fruits and cucumber as the garnish for this dish. It give quite a lot of this chicken cubes and chestnut.
Tai PingLast but not least, Fruit Platter consisted of watermelon, honeydew, rock melon and pineapple. The great one ๐Ÿ™‚
