AP-16 Thai Style Pork Cheek: Grilled-marinated w Thai herbs and spices - 2+

J's comment > just a tad salty, but as a sucker for pork cheek, this dish was quite good, not too fatty, lovely grill flavour

Daily Special: Grilled duck breast - 2+

J's comment > this is actually the same item on the menu (but slightly cheaper today) as SI-52 Free Range Duck Breast A) Grilled marinated w Thai herbs & Thai spices. Very tender! Shockingly so!! Would have been perfect if the duck skin was less fatty and crisped.

Lunch Combo, L11 Thai Green Curry w coconut milk, bell peppers, snap peas, eggplant and fresh basil w steamed rice- 2+

J's comment > curry very good, and surprisingly very similar to the one at Take Thai Home. See post here. Rice was a tad on the soft side, dangerously close to being mushy.

Lunch Combo, Egg roll w salad - 2

Three Princesses: Sweet sticky rice w egg custard, fresh mango and homemade sweet coconut strips - 2+

(left to right)

Sweet coconut strips - 2+

Mango - 2

Egg Custard - 2+

J's comment > The coconut strips and egg custard  were definitely different, worth a try if you've never had it before like this. Mango wasn't the ripest one off the tree :(
