We had wanted to return to Kyushu Pancake Cafe to try French toast, but alas, it was all sold out 😦 So we went to the next most popular restaurant during this hour, Rochor Thai 🙂
Got ourselves counter seats where we could watch some chef action, but it turned out that all the dishes we ordered were prepared inside the kitchen, haha:
Grilled Squid Pla Meuk Yang
Wok Fried Morning Glory Pak Boong Fai Daeng
Grilled Pork Collar Kor Moo
It’s the Labour Day long weekend, and we are off to explore Dempsey Hill! We started our trip to Dempsey Hill at the Tawandang Microbrewery, with Thai style Petai with Squid ($22++), Thai Char-grilled Pork Collar ($22++), and a bowl of rice ($2++) to share.
Thai Char-grilled Pork Collar
Thai style Petai with Squid
The pork collar was delicious! Firm in texture, the fats to meat proportion was about 1:4. Dipped into the sauce, this was a heavenly combination!
The petai with squid was a disappointment though. Looking nothing like the pictures, we much prefer the local version. The squid was rather chewy and the gravy just didn’t go well with the petai. We would rather spend the $22 on the pork collar anytime.
The rice portion was quite huge, and we didn’t mange to finish it. However, it was too sticky and not fluffy enough.
There is a current promotion of 20% off the chef recommendations mains.
