My friends and I have heard raving reviews of Nakhon and decided to meet up for dinner over here! All being east-siders, we were glad they have an outlet in Bedok! There was already a queue around 6 + pm and we waited for about 15 minutes before getting a table.
Thai Iced Milk Tea, $3
Everytime I dine in at a Thai restaurant/eatery, Cha Yen (Thai Iced Tea) is a must order! The taste is authentic and I love it!
Mango Salad, $5
The green mango salad, also known as Som Tum, is a kind of Thai salad that you either like or don't like as it had quite a distinct taste. As for me, I like the taste but I usually take a few spoonfuls of it only as I can't really take spicy food. Their green mango salad tasted quite bland actually.
Green Curry Chicken, $8
The next dish is the Green Curry with Chicken! One of my favourite! I actually prefer this over Tom Yum. The chicken was tender and the green curry was so full of flavour! It had just the right amount of minty flavour in it and the coconut milk enhanced the creamy texture. I enjoyed it very much!
Stir-Fried Kai Lan with Mushrooms, $6
We needed a Vege dish and so we ordered the Stir-Fried Kai Lan with Mushrooms. I love this as well, very tasty!
Stir-Fried Minced Pork with Basil, $6
A few years ago when I went over to Thailand for my internship, I often order this minced pork to go together with my rice. Although its spicy, the taste is awesome and I am willing to shed tears for this! Nakhon's version had the right balance of sweetness and saltiness.
Cereal Prawns, $8
The last item was the Cereal Prawns! This is everyone's favourite and the I love the crunchiness of the cereal prawns!
Overall, Nakhon Kitchen serves good authentic Thai food at an affordable price! The staff are all Thai people, their service is efficient and the waiting time for the food is short despite the place being packed with people! I will certainly come back here again to satisfy future Thai food cravings!
