Delicious Thai Dishes @ Patara Fine Thai Cuisine Tanglin Mall on 3Mar2019

8pax family lunch

son bought 8pax family lunch at patara to celebrate an event on 3.3.2019. ^^

initially wife had another engagement so we put that off, but when wife became available and patara was mentioned, everyone down tools did away with previous “engagements” and came for lunch. lol!

we took the S$38++pax alacarte buffet.

daughter ordered most of the dishes.

pomelo salad with prawns, roasted coconut

pomelo salad very appetizing. wife wondered where they always get sweet pomeloes. could do with a few more prawns. 🙂

tomyam gung

clear spicy and sour soup with seafood

all of us had the tomyam gung. good as always.

son took the clear soup with seafood. later i ordered one tasted a bit off.

shredded duck springroll

the shredded duck came as a springroll. had this here before. it was good now as then.

deep-fried beancurd with chilli-tamarind sauce

deep-fried beancurd everyone’s favourite. crispy outside, soft texture inside and great sauce.

golden-fried fish fillet in savoury three-flavoured sauce

fried fish fillet another favourite. server said garoupa, sometimes dory.

chicken cashew nuts

chicken cashew nuts ordinary, competent, a bit like japanese karaage, not a style i prefer, usually thick batter. but ok la…

grilled australian beef sirloin in red panang curry

grilled sirloin among the best dishes, nice tender beef with great panang sauce.

crab meat fried rice

everyone liked the crabmeat fried rice. it was good…youngest daughter and me thought no biggie, any of imperial treasure crystal jade & paradise would do as good or better.

my own egg white fried rice just as good too! 🙂

olive rice

olive rice was good, my usual favoruite.

stir–fried prawns with garlic and peppercorn

prawn was very good..much like what aunty Bes did for our homecooked sunday dinner.

green curry chicken

green curry chicken was good enough. among all the delicious dishes, i would rate this second worse dish after the salted egg sotong.

red curry chicken

red curry chicken very good. red curry somehow more flavourful than green, maybe more lemak.

pepper beef

pepper beef not so popular, basically me and E eating it.

beef though was very tender, maybe tenderised. pepper sauce though no one’s favoruite like zi char stalls, pepper beef a dish i never order at zi char…

salted egg sotong

for me this the worst dish today!

tasted nothing like salted egg. sotong was soft, mushy, wilted.

the sauce was a disaster, no powdery, fragrant taste of salted egg.

my own salted egg prawns

my own salted egg prawns which i did recently, though not the best c/w outside zi char stalls, way better than this la.

phad thai

phad thai was good. not that sweet, but for us, still too sweet. lol!

mango sticky rice

thai chendol

thai dessert

the dessert quite average.

mango sticky rice was poor! mango was sweet, sticky rice i think unacceptable.

durian cake was ok just not my favourite.

stir–fried prawns with garlic and peppercorn

overall a very enjoyable lunch with so many delicious dishes, and great family time together.

looking now at the menu wonder why daughter did not order the scallops and the stirfried seafood (the prawns was excellent so the seafood prepared same style should be good too!)
