For the few times that I've been down to The Canteen (1 Scotts Road, #01-01B Shaw Centre, tel : +65 6738 2276), I have always discounted this item and never gave it more than a cursory glace on the menu. The reason is I tend to be skeptical about any Thai whatevers when it's not done by a Thai establishment. This time round, I saw the red curry chicken across the table next to mine and decided that it looked pretty good.
I'm actually pretty impressed. The viscous and rich tasting gravy possessed a spicy kick I had not expected and definitely made an awesome companion to the rice that they gave. Something else to look forward to here other than the X.O. lou shi fan and laksa after all.
