On Christmas Day evening, we were at a friend’s place near Upper East Coast Road when we decided to have Thai food for dinner. We remembered that A-Roy Thai was along the same stretch but alas, it has since closed. I remember eating at their Funan outlet and was impressed by their food. What a pity. However, all was not lost. We noticed that there was another Thai food place in the area – Porn’s sexy thai food. I knew that the owner is the TV host, Pornsak but I did not realise that there is now a branch (original outlet at Liang Seah Street).
We ordered three dishes to share: Thai green chicken curry, stuffed chicken wings and prawn omelette (I lurrrrve omelettes).
It was surprisingly delicious. Ok, maybe I was hungry but the food was pretty decent. I loved that the omelette’s fried to a crisp – just the way I like it, and all dishes were served piping hot. Then again, the casual restaurant wasn’t very crowded. We had Moon with us so we took an outside table (yeay to accepting pets!). There were 2-3 occupied tables inside the restaurant. It was a lovely and balmy evening so it was nice sitting outside. The stuffed chicken wings were yummy too, especially when dipped in the accompanying Thai chilli sauce (which I love). The green curry was lovely – not too spicy with the right amount of creaminess.
The bill came up to about $50+ which I guess is pretty expensive for a casual dinner. Would I return? Maybe.
