Feast your Eyes on the food of the Thais!

In anticipation of Valentines’ Day this Sunday, our foodie friend, Awfully Chocolate & Sinpopo Brand’s Lyn Lee wants to share her favourite place for cosy meal for two. You’d think she’d be recommending something sweet and chocolatey, but ever the surprising Makan Kaki, she urges us to look for romance in the unlikeliest of places – FUNAN THE DIGILIFE MALL!

Enter for Tasty Thai!

Lyn and her husband are crazy about Thai food and in fact, this was one of the first places they dined at when they were dating! It has since moved from the East Coast to Funan, and sadly, said Mall will be closing for a major revamp in April – that’s why time is of the essence – hurry down to A-roy Thai for a really authentic, true-blue, tasty Thai meal. And while the fate of the restaurant is unconfirmed after April, watch this space – we’ll keep you updated! Now, Lyn & her husband’s love affair with Thai cuisine continued from their first date to their honeymoon in Bangkok where they took up a cooking course and discovered that the flavours they craved from Thailand are lovingly recreated at A-roy Thai. The owner-chefs are Thai and truly, there are so many great dishes on their menu, but some of Lyn’s favourites include the deep-fried prawn cakes, stuffed chicken wings, even the pre-meal snack of crackers and chilli dip, which is so delicious, Lyn orders seconds even before the meal arrives!

Clockwise L-R: Green Mango Salad, Fried Omelette and rich & creamy Green Chicken Curry

Also a must are their red & green curries, which are not watery but full-bodied, rich and creamy, the steamed seabass with lime juice, lemongrass, chilli and masses of garlic…

…and the fantastic Tom Yum soup that is as it is served in Thailand – clear, with sparing ingredients, yet a satisfying kick.

And to finish your Thai feast, you have to try their sticky rice. To Lyn, they do some of the best in Singapore. Be sure to order the mango AND the durian Sticky rice desserst. The rice has such a gorgeous texture, and somehow they manage to keep the rice grains separate and smooth, yet moist and savoury-sweet, with a pleasing bite.

This Valentines’ Day, make your own memories at this surprising dining destination and like Lyn, fall in love with all the Thai classics done so well and add some spice to your relationship!
