Singapore Eats: Nakhon Kitchen, Holland Village

Hello! Happy Chinese New Year! Wishing everyone a prosperous and abundant joy in the year of Rooster. I just came back from a short home-bound trip to Jakarta today and along the way, I realised that it has been a while since the last time I update my blog. Since I am in a pretty much happy mood (Tuesday blues has not kicked in yet for another hour I think), I feel like sharing my new-founding joy in eating Thai cuisine at Nakhon Kitchen in Holland Village.

If you come to visit Nakhon Kitchen during busy dining hours, chances are you have to queue up for a table. Yikes I know. If you hate queuing up like me, you may want to consider coming to Nakhon earlier like around 5.30PM-ish. We immediately got for ourselves a table of 2.

Since it was pretty humid back then, we were totally in the mood to enjoy iced Thai milk tea. The Thai milk tea served at Nakhon Kitchen is pretty good (if you find them to be too sweet, wait until the ice cubes melted and the drink will be just nice).

We ordered three dishes to share amongst the two of us. From left to right, a bowl of green curry chicken, stir friend kang kong belachan and deep fried squid served with Thai sauce.

I always wonder how to say kang kong in English. Some google reference mentions them as water spinach or whatever but there does not seem to be any on-point English word for this veggie. The dish, kang kong belachan (SGD 6) is a popular Asian veggie dish which rely heavily on the spices used to stir fry the kang kong with. Nakhon Kitchen serves a pretty fresh and yummy rendition of kangkong belachan. Yum!

The next dish, the green curry chicken (SGD 8) is actually nothing new in the Thai cuisine-world. If you don't like chicken, you can enjoy the green curry with either beef or prawn. The green curry is leaning toward the tangy and spicy taste but it is still considered mild enough for our tastebud, thankfully. Best to be eaten with hot white rice.

The last dish that we ordered is the deep fried squid with Thai chili sauce (SGD 10). Thai chili sauce is actually not spicy at all. In fact, it tastes kinda sweet. Like the sweet in the sweet and sour sauce. Haha. The deep fried squid is served with a lot of lettuces as garnish. Overall, this dish taste okay. Nothing can go wrong with anything deep-fried, I suppose.
