[Tasting invite] Spicy Thai-Thai Cafe

Alight from Aljunied MRT and walk a little further in, located just behind Geylang East Centre Market, one can get to enjoy delicious and authentic Thai cuisine from Spicy Thai-Thai Cafe! The business's second outlet opened since 2013, where first located in Jalan Besar.

Thanks to my friends and Christina, i had the opportunity to have a taste of the food served by Spicy Thai-Thai Cafe some time ago. A place that offers authentic Thai cuisine (following the north-east culture), Thai steamboat and also Thai Mookata all in one restaurant. Wonderful company, delicious food!


Some of the drinks we ordered that evening - Thai Ice Bandung, Signature Thai Ice Milk Tea, and Ice Lemongrass!


They offer condiment of different dressings made in-house that is sure to stimulate one's appetite when dipped with!




Fish Maw Crab Meat Abalone Soup in Coconut (S$28) - Interestingly served in a coconut husk that add fragance and sweetness to the broth. The soup contained fish maw, crab meat, mushrooms, and two pieces of 10-head Abalone. Flavourful and comfortable to have! The serving size can be shared among two person.



Thai Style Otak (Hommok) (S$18) - Another interesting dish that is served in a coconut husk. Apart from just Otah, there's also prawns, squids and coconut flesh in it. Topped with Thai Basil and chopped Chilli.


Thai Walking Cat Fish with Spicy Lemon Soup (S$35) - Unique choice of using Catfish for a much tender and softer meat. This dish is prepared and served using charcoal to keep a constant heat. In this case, we are also able to enjoy the fish's most natural collagen. This dish can be changed to sea bass too if preferred. Spicy level is strong and overall a very appetising dish. The sauce is great too!



BBQ Pork Belly (S$18) - Well-cooked and a must to order if you visit this place. We love the flavour and the tenderness of the meat!


Thai Dill Omelette (Cha Om) (S$10) - Thai dill makes the omelette turns out juicier and tastier!


Cold Tofu with Special Thai Seafood Sauce (S$15) - Tofu has always been my favourite since young and this one here definitely pass the standard. We all love its delicious, flavourful sauce all over the soft silken cold Tofu!


Lala Bee Hoon (S$18) - We love the broth, spicy yet addictive!


Deep Fried Kang Kong with Special Thai Sauce (S$10) - My first time trying Fried Kang Kang. This one here is cooked till very crispy and tasty. The Fried Kang Kang pairs really well with the special sauce that comes along. Pretty much like eating vegetable Tempura.


Thai Basil Crab (Seasonal Price) - This dish don't just looks good but the sauce was too spicy for me to take although its really yummy. Generous portion, great for a group to enjoy!



Many thanks to the restaurant owner, Mr. Ron, for having us over for such a great treat! =)
