Jim Thomp­son: A Thai Restau­rant

Singapore Tatler Singapore's Best Restaurants - - THAI -

WHY GO

This well-ap­pointed seven-year-old es­tab­lish­ment is as much a favourite for cor­po­rate din­ners as it is with smaller din­ner groups, thanks to menus rang­ing from a la carte din­ners to cham­pagne buf­fets on week­ends.

TATLER TIPS

The restau­rant is not cer­ti­fied ha­lal, but uses no pork nor lard in their cook­ing and also of­fers over 60 vege­tar­ian dishes. The pat­taya set fea­tures six skew­ers of juicy, well­mar­i­nated beef that slides off the skewer; pip­ing-hot scal­lops and prawns deep-fried in a black-sesame bat­ter. The tom khaa is spicy, and the tex­tu­ral seafood soup has gen­er­ous serv­ings of mus­sels, prawns, squid and fish. The yam ma moung gub poo nim is a sweet and mildly spicy pad Thai-style noo­dle, with the deep-fried soft shell crab thought­fully chopped into bite-sized pieces.
