Was absolutely chuffed to find out that Khao Hom by Rung Mama has a new outlet in my hood. Located in Katong Square, the East Coast finally has a place for great Thai food.

Skip the trip to Bangkok and the insane queues for Michelin star crab omelettes, because you can get a killer one right here too. The incredibly fluffy omelette is chockful of fresh crab meat, seasoned to perfection and well worth the price.

Disparate individual ingredients come together as a whole with a panoply of complementing flavours when mixed together. The pungent bite of raw onion, subtle fruitiness of green mango, meaty saltiness of Thai sausage and pork in oyster sauce stir fry blended harmoniously with the umami shrimp paste fried rice dotted with tiny dried shrimp.

The glorious stench of petai permeated the air, instantly activating my salivatory glands. The fumes hit the back of my throat with each bite of funky, spicy, salty morsels of pork and stink bean. Mixed into rice, its the perfect comfort food.

I love the classic Thai stuffed wings, and these were plenty meaty, filled with chicken mince and glass noodles. Unfortunately they were also underseasoned, so much so that I struggled to finish them even dipped in chilli sauce.

With crunch, sweetness, sourness and saltiness in every bite, som tum whets the appetite like no other. I swear this is much less spicy than the version at Dee Tongue though.

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!
