[ CLOSED ] Baan Tong Thai
Tiong Bahru is well known of its good hawker food (read my post onTiong Bahru Hawker Centre) and its quaint little cafes.But lately,there is a new addition to the neighbourhood — a new Thai restaurant,Baan Tong Thai!!
Opened for about 6 months ago,this restaurant is rather packed with working crowd when I visited on a weekday for lunch.The kitchen is said to helm by a Thai chef who is also the co owner.服务很活跃，当我们坐下时，we were served 4 different Thai sauces: seafood (green),BBQ (dark red),巴拉坎（带籽）和甜酱。
Of course,we have to have some Clear Tom Yum Soup ($8.80).We ordered the seafood here,but other options include chicken and prawns).It's a well-balanced soup,and you do get to enjoy all the flavours of sweet,sour,savoury and umami,before the chili hits you.Their prawns didn't make the mark though.
Pork collar is one of the favorite cuts among the Thai,这是因为它有适量的瘦肉，vwin备用muscle,and fat.But sadly,I have yet to find a Thai restaurant in Singapore that does it well.They are either too dry or bland.The BBQ Pork ($14) here is also,不幸的是，dry and tough.
Prawn Cakes ($6.80)
We ordered prawn cakes and fish cakes but I prefer their fish cakes.只用最新鲜的巴塘鱼肉和香料，vwin备用Fish cakes ($6.80) make a grvwin备用eat snack on their own dipped in sweet Thai sauce.
This Thai version of Honey Chicken ($9.80) turns ordinary chicken into an amazing-tasting meal.
Seabass is turned into crispy fried fish and smothered with strips of mango,chillies and spring onions marinated in a fish sauce,sugar and lime juice mixture.This Mango Seabass ($31.80) is what epitomises the Thai philosophy – hot,sour,salty,甜美！!
Dessert was Sticky Mango Rice ($6.50),right type of mangoes were used – a perfectly ripe and very sweet!!
不是他们的陈多尔（6.50美元）的粉丝，而是用餐伙伴，这是一次成功！Jackfruit was added in and the whole cup was heavily flavoured with gula melaka and jackfruit,不能真正尝到陈多尔条。
Nevertheless,their Thai Ice Tea ($3.50) is not bad,not too sweet and it was well balanced.
经理为他的泰国冰茶感到骄傲，并向我们展示了他们用来泡茶的高级茶。所以如果你想喝杯好冰茶，go for this brand!!
There are definitely hits and misses but Baan Tong Thai has definitely captured the essence of Thai cuisine.
