The familiar addictive flavours I remember are still here - a heady combination of fragrant basil, garlic, and green and red chillies, singeing your tastebuds with a simmering heat. The soya sauce stained pork belly is chunky and fatty, but I was a little disappointed the crackling wasn't...crackly.

Suffused with smokiness, the grains of rice are more al-dente and distinctively separate than usual, which is just how I like my fried rice. Wok-fried and tossed with pieces of chicken, frozen peas, carrot and corn, this was also slightly spicy and definitely satisfying, especially with an add-on fried egg.

Saucy, spicy and indelibly umami, the wok-fired stir fry was redolent with heat from chilli padi and the fragrance of Thai holy basil. Coupled with the crunch of finely diced long beans and chunks of onion, this version of "kra pow" is amongst my favourite so far.

There's an intangible flavour profile here, a balanced melange of sweet, sour, spicy and salty - hallmarks of Thai cuisine - that transports you to 3am late night streetside suppers in one of Bangkok's infamous nightlife numbered Sois. The noodles are the perfect slippery smooth texture, each strand coated in a glistening tamarind and fish sauce mixture, interlaced with streak bits of egg, crunchy bean sprouts and spring onion. Thai me up because I'm never leaving.

A refreshing pick-me-up that’ll wake the senses with hits of sweet and sour spiciness and the aroma of mint, the seafood salad’s base of crunchy green mango strips is accompanied by tender morsels of fish chunks and plump, juicy prawns.

Deep-fried to perfection, the light and airy batter is resoundingly crunchy and the fresh squid rings still maintained their succulent integrity. Lightly seasoned and tossed with fragrant curry leaf, it’s served with a spicy and tangy green chilli dip. The perfect poolside snack with beers.

Love Noodles is a new stall at 3838 Eating Place next to Siglap Centre, serving up affordable fusion Thai food that's definitely worth a try. This proved to be slurp-worthy - minced meat and finely chopped long beans stir-fried in a sauce that was tangy and umami, aromatic from the basil and packing quite alot of heat even though I had asked for the lowest level of spiciness. I can only imagine what level 3 tastes like. If you don't fancy Italian noodles in your Thai food, they also give you a choice of mee and vermicelli, amongst others. Their signature chicken wings looked amazing too, but I didn't have enough room to try them. Will be back for sure!

Was hesitant to make a reservation here after seeing quite a number of bad reviews on Google Maps, but I'm glad I decided to risk it based on my previous experience at another Gin Khao branch. The basil pork was moreish and plentiful, and the runny fried egg was perfectly cooked. Even the sliced cucumbers(which are usually dry and stale at other Thai restaurants) were refreshingly crunchy and juicy. Of course, expect to pay a premium here for the location and view.

Smoky, laden with crunchy vegetables and tender pork slices hidden under sheets of silky rice noodles with just the right amount of bite, this plate of pad see ew was satisfying, but a little small for the $5.9 I paid for it during lunch, and I was hungry a few hours later.

I opted for non-spicy, and without the heat and kick of chilli, it was disappointingly bland. There was barely a whisper of basil and the sauce tasted predominantly of soy.

The best kind of wanton mee is the kind that’s slicked in lard and bits of fried garlic. Kin Moo’s comes with 2 slices of fatty char siew and 2 large wantons. Of note is the peppery soup with a large slice of daikon that lends its natural sweetness to it.

Overall, its tasty, but for this price it’s not much.

These are seriously stinky beans right here, but in a good way. With a raw funk that will put off many but has me hooked, they're stir-fried in a moderately spicy and sweet chilli sauce with chillis, onions and juicy prawns. Slightly smoky and brimming with umami, I could eat this with only a plateful of plain rice and walk away a satisfied man.
