family decided to try out lunch at nakhon kitchen at hollandv on 9.8.2015.^^

(friend brought me to nakhon kitchen @ AMK recently. i enjoyed the authentic thai food very much).

place opened at 12pm & don’t take reservations, and has reputation of long queues, and parking at hollandv at 12pm is usually horrendous. wife said 1/2 the people were away on national day (in this case maybe also because of the many SG50 festivities) and true enough, carpark was quite empty at 11.50am.

no frills decor, no frills prices.

mango salad

mango salad – S$5

we ordered the mango salad.

not to be compared with relish burger’s prawn turnip salad which was >2x the price, but it was ok.

chicken wings

chicken wings – S$8

the chicken wings were surprising very good.

and it’s comparable (almost i guess) to patara’s, which are >2x the price. that’s how good it was. 🙂

tomyam seafood soup

tomyam talay (seafood) soup – S$6

tomyam talay (seafood) soup was competent, maybe nothing to comment i guess for S$6.

my daughter prefers the tomyam noodles (S$6 student price) at le wu.

only 1 prawn so maybe so do tomyam gung next time instead of talay.

but i would rather have the S$10 one at thai gold food which we had recently.

red curry beef

red curry beef – S$8

we all loved the red curry beef. it was really good! ^^

for me the red curry was patara’s standard.

green curry chicken

green curry chicken – S$8

the green curry chicken was much less good.

it was ok, but strangely it seemed much thicker & from the photos looked completely different from vibrant, yummy one at nakhon kitchen AMK. that one i finished up all the curries.

deepfried grouper with thai chilli

deepfried grouper with thai chilli – S$22

my son wanted the deepfried garoupa. i had some doubts it would turn up like the really excellent dish at patara. the server said it was a favourite dish here.

it was quite small. but it was quite good actually, so i didn’t mind it. but i thought i could do this easily at home, only have to conjure up the right sauce. 🙂

the one at patara cost S$39++but is like 2x the size & sauce much better, so i think patara more worthwhile. 🙂

pad thai

pad thai – S$5

pad thai was just S$5.

pad thai – S$5

it’s not my favourite dish, but it’s quite authentic here, not too sweet. overall quite good.

minced beef basil rice

minced beef basil rice – S$6

son ordered the basil minced beef rice.

taste was ok. cannot c/w with le wu’s fried basil beef but i guess not really a like for like comparison.

we also had a S$5 mango sticky rice to share. did not take photo. anyway sticky rice not fragrant, a dish i could do without.

lunch for 4pax came to S$80, or S$20nett, no service, no GST.

must say it was a very authentic thai meal, quite shiok!
