- The Shop
Diandin Leluk Thai Restaurant is owned by a Singaporean man with his Thai wife. They are located in Golden Mile Complex, a popular haunt to Thai nationals and a place for people to aboard their coach to Malaysia.
This is probably one of Singapore's better Thai cuisine that has a reasonable price with decent authentic flavors.
They have condiments like dried chili flakes, sugar, nam pla (fish sauce) and ground peanut on the table. You can adjust the taste of your food accordingly if you like.
- The Food
Papaya Salad Thai Style @ $5 (also known as "som tam")
The slightly tart flavor of the green papaya combines well with the spice of red chilli, the saltiness of shrimp paste, fish sauce and crunchy peanuts. However this green papaya salad is not as tasty as what we expected.
Clear Tom Yum Seafood Soup @ $10
The tangy and spicy seafood soup is served in a typical Thai ware with candle beneath. Thou I prefer the (red) tom yum soup but both soup is so potent & piquant that every mouthful is mind blowing!
Please savor the soup slowly, if you get choke, a jug of ice water won't be able to save your throat too. Fret not for those who has little tolerance for spiciness, you can always request for less chilli.
Stir-Fried Kangkong with Sambal Belachan @ $8
This veggie is absolutely fantastic! Every bite has a nice crunch with a great blend of chilli and prawn. Yummmm...
Deep Fried Prawn Cake (4 pcs) @ $10
The deep-fried chunky prawns serve with sweet Thai chili is gratify. Thou it's quite pricey for 4pcs of prawn cake, but every bite is absolutely delicious!
Mango with Sticky Rice @ $6
The sweetly ripe mango, served atop a bed of glutinous rice drizzled in coconut milk is a hit!
Lemon Grass Juice @ $1.50
(no picture taken) - i had better lemon grass juice before *^_^*
My last experience on 12 August 2011 was as scrumptious. I had Red Tom Yum, Spicy Long Bean, Prawn and they are equally tasty!
- My Opinion
Their food is much spicier than most Thai Restaurant. For those who don't much take spice, be prepare to "enjoy" a fantastic tingling that tickles in your stomach. It will give you a good purge thereafter!
I have very high tolerance for spiciness and the tom yum is a little spicy to me, so I guess it will be tongue burning for most. I will definitely return again for more Red Tom Yum!
