Rama V @ Jalan U-Thant

Having tried Rama V almost eight years back, I was eager to try it again.

My last visit there didn't yield such good results but I was assured that the chef had changed since then. 

 First on the menu was Mieng Kam. It was the first time I have had it and I was a bit leery at the leaf that I was supposed to consume raw. After plonking a little of everything into a cone shaped leaf I had devised, I found the mix of flavours very unique. I would definitely try it again.

Chor Ladda, the little flower shaped dumplings. They looked too good to eat. We gobbled it all up in record time.

Mango salad. There was just this right amount of kick to the spiciness and the sourness of the mango.

Tom Yam Kung. My last visit left me totally unimpressed with the Tom Yam. It was either not spicy enough or not sour enough. Either way, I wasn't satisfied. I'm glad to say that this time, I was totally surprised. Perfect.

After having too many fishcakes, we decided on crab cakes instead. Crunchy and sweet.

Green curry chicken. There was enough kaffir lime leaves in there to make me happy and I loved how silky the texture of the curry was.

Beef in pepper. Nothing too special. I prefer the beef I had in Amarin much better.

Obligatory veggie dish. I would say it's only so so. 

I would never go to any Thai restaurant without at least trying the Pad Thai once. I was glad to say that this dish passed with flying colours. 

After being thwarted by the lack of Durian Sticky Rice (it wasn't in season then), we chose to have the Pumpkin Pudding. I was all set to dislike this dish but it turned out creamy and not too sweet. 

Regular Mango Sticky Rice. I think we enjoyed the mango more than anything else on the plate.
