Thai Glass Noodle Salad 3.5/5
We started with the Thai Glass Noodle Salad which was light and refreshing. A little more zest will be good but it was still a lovely appetizers to kick start the feast.
Thai Papaya Salad 3.8/5
Compared to the glass noodle salad, the Thai Papaya Salad was more flavoursome and came with a fearsome kick of spiciness. Like the glass noodle salad, I would prefer them to have a dash more fish sauce and lime.
Thai Fish Cakes 3.8/5
A common street food, the Thai Fish Cakes was given a little twist by the kitchen of Plaza Brasserie. The lightly breaded version of the Thai fish cakes with its outer crisp and a delightful light bites.
Thai Fish Maw Soup 3.8/5
The Thai Fish Maw Soup was thick and savoury. It was served right in time to cool off my palate after having all the spicy food. However, being told it was Thai fish maw soup, I could not really point out the difference between the Asian version.
Thai Beef Noodle Soup 3.8/5
The Thai Beef Noodle Soup was probably the favourite among the group. The excellent broth was accompanied with tender beef and bouncy beef balls. Unfortunately I did not enjoy the thick but thin rice noodles. I would prefer the broad and flat type.
Thai Red Duck Curry 4.2/5
While many raved about the Thai Beef Noodle Soup, my favourite for the night was the Thai Red Duck Curry. It may sound weird to have roast duck meat in Thai red curry but it was surprisingly balanced and flavoursome.
Stir Fried Kai Lan in Thai style 4/5
Thai people loves their greens and the Stir Fried Kai Lan in Thai style was beautifully cooked with the Kai Lan still have a nice crunch to it.
Stir Fried Minced Pork with Basil leaves 3.5/5
The Stir Fried Minced Pork with Basil leaves was calling out for a plate of fragrant rice. Once again I felt it was lacking in seasoning and was a tad watery.
Steamed Seabass in spicy Thai Lime & Chilli 4.5/5
Finally a dish that kicks through with the strong basic authentic Thai flavours of spicy, sweet and sour tastes. The freshly Steamed Seabass in spicy Thai Lime & Chilli was very delectable.
Glutinous Rice with Durian Paste 4.5/5
Another twist by the kitchen at Plaza Brasserie. The Glutinous Rice with Mango is substituted with Durian paste which a love for most Singaporean. The durian paste was so good that most of us in the group ended up having the durian paste alone.
Tapioca with Coconut Cream 3/5
The Tapioca with Coconut Cream is another popular street dessert in Thailand. The sweetened tapioca lacked the consistency whereby some parts are still quite hard.
