A new concept from ThaiExpress, Basil by thaiexpress targets the young, wild and trendy food goers. Its debut outlet at kallang wave mall aims to attract the young and wild generation seeking good and afforable food with a hip and rustic ambience.so am told that the dishes at this new outlet are mostly whipped up from scratch. It is evident as I could taste that most of the ingredients such as the prawns and coconut used were really fresh. the dishesPapaya Salad Light refreshing and all so spicy. I was just back from thailand a couple weeks ago and i realise how a good papaya salad comes about is the need for fresh ingredients. Thai Fish cakeYou can't go wrong with fish cakes. The one my basil was a tad soft but still had that otah thai fish cake taste. Marries well with the sweet and spicy sauce provided too!Thai style salted egg calamariFried calamari on a wooden dish topped with salted egg yolk sauce. I would say very different from the usual thai salted egg yolk calamaris dished out in Singapore, this is more dry and less sweet. Nonetheless, that taste buds wowing salted egg yolk still delighted the table. Songkran chicken wings Wings made to celebrate the Songkran festival. Although it was quite salty, the wings were fragrant and juicy. The seasoning bits over the chicken gave the wings that crunchy sweet texture. Stir-fried Phuket Bee Hoon Phuket style bee hoon which was my other favourite dish of the night. That lime gave the whole dish a zesty flavour, coupled with the bee hoon which (my guess) was fried with coconut sauce. Tiger prawns adding a seafood taste to the entire dish. A unique flavour all round. time for dessertsMango sticky riceCoconut sauce and mangoes were fresh. Apart from that, nothing much to rave about. overall review: ful review and pictures @ http://shauneeie.blogspot.sg/2015/04/basil-by-thai-express-kallang-wave-mall.html continue reading
