Food Tasting | Sawatdee from ParaThai

According to Department of Statistics Singapore's General Household Survey on Overseas Travel in 2005, about 60.2% of Singaporean residents aged 15 & above travelled out of Singapore for holidays. Wow... I might be in the stats or probably not. Back then I just started on my part-time diploma course.

And then the top 5 destinations chosen by Singaporean residents include Thailand scoring 3rd place overall. Well... everyone knows where to go for nice and cheap shopping and food. An eye for detail. Not bad. 9 years gap since 2005 should still be on the high side despite their political instability and so on. It is rather popular with young holidaymakers from what I see. And budget airlines are travelling to places like Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi and some other places plus it is just a 2 hours flight!

So when you don't have plans to travel there and have the craving for Thai food, what do you do? There are quite a number of Thai restaurants/eateries in Singapore and if you are in dilemma where to go for, then come to ParaThai. The latest breakthrough from Paradise Group, bringing a non-Chinese concept to you without travelling to Thailand for their food. 

A team of experts from Thailand led by Chef Meaw will bring you the true culinary culture and ancient flavours, to prep you in savouring through flavours and freshness in the line of dishes.

Appetizer: Yam Som-O Goong Krob (Pomelo Salad with Dried Shrimps)
A sweet refreshing appetizer to start our meal and definitely recommend this. Be amazed with the mix of pomelo flesh, cashew nuts, crispy dried shrimps and topped with pork floss.

Soup: Tom Yam Goong (Tom Yum Soup with Sea Prawns)
What is Thai food without a decent bowl of Tom Yam Goong? Spicy soup base with mushrooms and prawns. Imagine the spiciness with that dry chili in it. For me, is overwhelming but not for my husband with a good tolerance of spiciness.

Meat/Poultry: Ped Yang Phad Kra Prow Krob (Stir Fried Roast Duck with Basil Leaves)
A Chinese style roast duck with tender texture and Thai style of cooking. Basil leaves and other spices have covered the certain smell of the roast duck. Recommended.

Rice: Kaow Phad Sapparad Goong/Gai (Pineapple Fried Rice with Prawns)
A decent plate of pineapple fried rice that spreads sweetness all over. Fresh prawns and fragrance rice. The certain amount of moisture is retained that makes the rice not so sticky.

Vegetables: Phad Kha Na Pla Kham (Stir Fried Kailan with Salted Fish)
I think stir fried kailan should be a staple on all tables. Crunchy and fresh vegetables. Why not if you want a good amount of nutrients intake daily?

Drinks: Thai Iced Tea (left) and Pink Guava Juice (right)
End your meal with their refreshing drinks. My husband finds the Thai Iced Tea like Hong Kong famous Silk Stocking Milk Tea 丝袜奶茶. Definitely a good try.

Overall, the experience is good and certainly, a mix of Thai and Chinese style dishes that suits Singaporean's taste bud.
