I re-visited Un-Yang-kar-Dai restaurant recently with a friend for dinner over the weekend. Read about my first visit post here.The restaurant specialises in north-eastern Thai or Isaan cuisine. It is rather interesting as north-eastern Thai cuisine has slight influenced by Khmer cuisine and northern side of Thai cuisine is more suitable for cooler valleys and forested mountains of the Thai highlands. Thus, this explains the differences in the spices, ingredients and cooking method here in Un-Yang-Kor-Dai.
Here are the dishes we tried:
Thai Papaya Salad with Salted Egg S$10.50
Leng Zaab – S S$28.00 | M S$43.00 | L S$68.00
Prime pork and back ribs cooked to tender perfection and served with herbs and Issan spicy sour soup. The dish is served with some flambé action so make sure you get your camera/ phone ready to capture the moment. The portion is quite generous and I would say this is best for group sharing.
Signature Grilled Chicken (Half) S$12.00 | (Whole) S$21.00
Missing this signature grilled chicken and it still taste as good as the first time I had. I would recommend ordering this well-marinated chicken with perfectly grilled crispy skin.
As for desserts, we had the Rice Balls with Sweet Coconut Milk (with/without egg) S$6.50 and Thai Milk Tea Pudding S$5.50.The rice balls with sweet coconut milk surprisingly goof. The coconut sauce was sweet and creamy flavour and you could taste the chewiness of the rice balls.
It was a filling dinner with generous serving of food. It was my friend’s first time here and he enjoyed it as well. The food here tasty and can be fiery and spicy. For those who can’t take spicy, do remember to ask for less spicy.
