Spicy Thai Thai Cafe @ Bedok
Spicy Thai Thai Cafe is the latest addition to the two popular Thai restaurants nearby along the stretch of Bedok North Ave 3, converted once a coffeeshop into a full fledge Thai eatery, the restaurant offers array of authentic Thai cooked food, steamboat and Mookata in an non-air conditioned but well ventilated environment. We like Thai food and here we go!
We went for the few popular Thai dishes like the Lala Bee Hoon, Grilled pork neck, Thai Omelette, Fried Garlic chicken etc,
Lala Bee Hoon ($18.0)
Lala Bee Hoon is one of the signature dishes here, Spicy Thai is not stingy with the lala which is important to infuse the needed sweetness into each strain of bee hoon. Lala was fresh and not clogged with grits of sand, which is the backbone to heighten the deliciousness of the dish. (3.8/5.0)
Grilled Pork Neck ($12.0)
We were captivated by the beautifully grilled pork neck picture in the menu with its glittering charred finishing thought what delivered to the table was a different story.
Pork neck mainly consist of lean meat and don’t have the great tenderness of the pork jowl, nevertheless, if correctly prepared and cooked, it could an alluring part of the piggy for this Thai style pork neck dish, unfortunately, it is not created to impress compared to many other Thai restaurants serving the same dish in both the flavour and texture, it missed the right seasoning to create the right sensation on the taste buds and a disappointment dish overall. (2.5/5.0)
Deep fried Garlic Chicken ($12.0)
Chunks of chicken were not deboned and overly fried in oil, result in a dry and hard chicken pieces, measly garlic slices never helped to boost the favour and certainly a dish with plenty of room for improvement. (2.5/5.0)
Deep Fried Crispy Kang Kong ($12.0)
Kang Kong was coated with flour and deep fried to produce a crisp and crunchy texture, a mild spicy Thai curry gravy was served together as a dipping sauce to give the bland deep fried veggie some flavour though it might taste weird for some, perhaps Thai Spicy could consider adding the seasoning to the coating flour to lift the flavour and not relying on the dipping sauce to provide the needed taste, overall still a good starter for the meal. (3.2/5.0)
Balancan Fried Rice ($6.5)
We tasted good charred flavour or wok hei in the rice, however, the Balancan was mild and not distinctive enough, fortunately, the overall seasoning kept the fried rice taste afloat, however, the topping of luk cheong or preserved sausage could well be replaced with something more appealing for the taste sensory. (3.0/5.0)
Thai Cha-om Omelette ($12.0)
Cha-om is a well-loved herby vegetable among the Thais, it may have an acquiring bitterness taste to the unaccustomed, but the aroma could be additive ones got used to it. In fact, the veggies is started gaining the acceptance locally in the popular Cha-om omelette dish, it gives the omelette another dimension of taste and added a fresh layer of flavour to otherwise just the Thai omelette aroma. However, there is always a clear disparity between the adult and the teen for this likable or unlikable dish. (3.5/5.0)
Stir-fried Garlic Sweet Potatoes leaves ($10.0)
Sweet potatoes leaves simply cooked with garlic but somehow it has both the flavour and crunchy texture, not bad overall. (3.5/5.0)
Spicy Thai Thai Cafe has some good dishes offered but may need more polish work to improve the quality in some of the dishes as well, Recommended dishes are the Lala Bee Hoon and Stir-fried sweet potatoes leaves with garlic.
The two strong competitors nearby can pose a big challenge to Spicy Thai Thai Café on both quality and price, it all voice down to survival and Spicy Thai Thai Café needs a right gameplay to keep the business going.
