A quick post on affordable Thai food 🙂
My friends and I wanted to have Merely, but we needed lunch before that, so we popped by Zenso, which is two doors down from my fave ice-cream place.
I can’t remember much about the food I had there, but I remember this omelette. Its thick and fat, filled with prawns and just like how a good omelette should be. But the best part of it is the crispy edges, how the egg has been beaten and fried till its a delicious, brittle mess in your mouth when you bite down. So good!
And a classic favourite is Jai Thai, which has a few branches, including one at Bugis. Students in my old JC loved to frequent this place for lunch, with affordable lunch sets, and equally affordable dinner dishes.
Ordered Pandan Chicken ($2.50 per piece, min 2), Phad Thai ($7, medium), Prawn Cake ($2.50 per piece, min 2), Tom Yum Seafood ($8), and Prawn Omelette ($6).
Pandan chicken was fragrant and relatively succulent, Phad Thai was sweet and simple, prawn cakes were a tad oily, tom yum soup was normal and the omelette was yummy albeit a bit too oily too.
Overall satisfying for a quick meal and easy on the wallet too!
