It has been a while since I had my Thai cuisine.Eileen invited me over to Sawadee Thai located at Tan Queen Street few weeks ago. I was told that Sawadee Thai has been around Singapore for 15 years and their previous location was at Sembawang.
So, here is their new location with casual dining interior setting. Let’s check out what we had that day:
Papaya Salad (Som Tam) S$12.00 / S$18.00
Shredded papaya with dried shrimps and chilli to kick start the meal. This dish has a subtle spiciness that spicy lovers would love it.
Thai Coconut Chicken Soup ( Tom Kha Gai) S$13.00
The soup served in coconut with chicken cubes and galangal. This is rather interesting dish instead of the usual Tom Yum soup. The soup has infused with coconut taste with tint of lemongrass.
Tom Yum Soup (Tom Yum Talay) S$12.00/ S$18.00
Spicy enough that you will sweat even in the air-conditioned place.
Panseared Black Angus Beef Ribeye (Neau Ribeye Black Angus Yang) S$32.00
250gram black Angus ribeye beef accompanied with green curry sauce. The succulent tender and juicy beef slice is just perfect with its own. So, be sure that you get a taste of it before dipping it with the green curry sauce.
Grilled Kurobuta Pork Collar (Khor Moo Kurobuta Yang) S$22.00
Grilled kurobuta pork collar accompanied with homemade spicy sauce.
Thai Style Otah on Clayplate (Hor Mok Talay Khanam Krok) S$16.00 for 7pcs
Beautifully plated otah with mixture of mackerel fish mousse and thai herbs served in traditional clayplate. The fish paste is well-marinated and it was the crowd favourite that night.
Hearty Duck Curry S$15.00/ S$22.00
Rich and creamy curry with a tint of lychee and pineapple sweetness in it. The roasted duck meat texture is tender and blended well with the curry sauce. If only I have a plate of white rice to enjoy it.
Superior Seafood fried rice (Khao Phad Talay) S$18.00/ S$28.00
Stir fried rice with crab meat, prawns and conpoy. The most addictive part is the conpoy that makes you carving for more.
Sawadee Olive Fried Rice (Khao Phad Nam Liap) S$14.00/ S$20.00
Fried Fish Maw with Bean sprouts (Kra Por Pla Phad Hang) S$14.00/ S$20.00
Looks ordinary but not so ordinary dish that it best to go with a plate of white rice.
Thai Stuffed Chicken Wings (Peek Kai Sord Sai) S$12.00 for 3 pcs / S$18.00 for 5 pcs
Classic dish that you will find in most Thai restaurants. The deboned chicken wings are stuffed with mixture of chicken meats and other ingredients and then fried it. It is best to enjoy with the Thai chilli sauce.
Mango Sticky Rice Platter (Khao Neow Ma Muang) S$30.00
Rounding up the meal with a plate of mango sticky rice platter. The mango cubes are nicely cut and tasted sweet and soft. The glutinous rice has a good crunch as well.
We had a scrumptious thai cuisine at Sawadee Thai that night. Although the price here is a bit tad pricey, the dishes here are meticulously prepared and served. They do take into consideration on the presentation as well. So, be sure to visit them in groups so that you can taste more dishes and share the cost together.
