Food Review: Nakhon Kitchen

Thai cuisine is known for being exquisite, with its subtle mix of underlying flavours together with the stronger salty, hot, sour or sweet taste. Nakhon Kitchen doesn’t disappoint, serving up authentic Thai dishes at affordable prices.


Pandan Chicken ($6)

The pandan chicken here is highly recommended and I could see this dish on almost every table. The chicken was highly aromatic and very fragrant as it was seasoned with spices. It was very palatable and tasted even better when dipped into the sweet and spicy sauce.


Yellow Curry Chicken ($8)

Thai curry comes in green, red and yellow. Yellow curry is sweet and has milder flavours compared to the red and green curry. It was hot and had a myriad of flavours – the best one I’ve tried so far.

After that burst of exotic taste, the Thai Iced Tea ($3) was the perfect drink to balance out the heat and spiciness of the dishes we’ve had. Nakhon Kitchen’s version had a stronger and more distinct tea taste. It was also not too sweet.

Overall, Nakhon Kitchen serves satisfying, authentic and fiery Thai food with a juxtaposition of flavours at wallet-friendly prices. Service is fast as well. I can see myself coming back here soon.

Food Review: Project Açaí

So, what’s so good about açaí (pronounced ah • sigh • ee)?

The açaí berry is low in sugar and packs in more protein than an egg. It also boosts heart health, enhances athletic performances because it increases energy levels and contains anti-aging properties.

Project Açaí is Singapore’s first dedicated açaí superfood café and it aims to show that healthy eating is not hard. They serve purely açaí bowls ($6.80, $9.30, $13.50) and smoothies ($8.50) – Beach Body To-Go, Yogi Wannabe-rry, Where My Chocolate Abs?

We ordered a large açaí bowl which consisted of an açaí-blended base with granola, freshly cut fruits of bananas, strawberries, mangoes and topped with coconut shavings, goji berries, chia seeds and bee pollen.

It was really refreshing and the açaí berries tasted like a mix berries and chocolate. It was so amazing I can’t believe that it’s actually healthy.

Project Açaí is without a doubt my new go-to option for guilt-free desserts.

Food Review: Culina Bistro

Culina Bistro is gourmet boutique and a restaurant, supplying many of the steak restaurants in Singapore so freshness is guaranteed here. Prices are reasonable and service is efficient. IMG_3012 After ordering, we were served a complimentary bread basket. The bread rolls came warm and toasted and fluffy inside. My mum loved them. They were to be dipped olive oil with sharp balsamic or simply spread with butter. IMG_3013 The highlight of the meal was the beef. We picked a 1.2kg 1824 Premium Beef OP Ribs from Queensland ($72.70) with a preparation fee of $25. OP Ribs are also known as bone-in ribeye steak or côte de bœuf. The beauty of this cut is that it is juicy, flavourful and has great marbling. We ordered it medium-rare with black pepper and red wine sauce. The beef was grilled extremely well with a charred crust and juicy interior. We also ordered Potato Purée ($8) and it was creamy, smooth and buttery. All in all, Culina Bistro serves up hearty dishes at affordable prices. I would definitely come back again.
