Nana Original Thai Food, Golden Mile Complex

Back to Golden Mile for Thai food. This time round it's Nana Original Thai Food (#01-51/52/66A Golden Mile Complex, 5001 Beach Road, tel : +65 6297 8498). Apparently, this shop opens 24/7.

Liked their rendition of green curry with chicken. The curry was thin, spiced and....well, because it was thin it was drinkable like a creamy soup. There was a good hit of the aniseed flavour from the basil.

Couldn't pass on their som tam mamuang.

Couldn't pass on dressing it up further with peanuts and sugar.

Flavour was varied and pretty intense. There was the citrus tang from the crunchy strips of mangoes, pungent saltiness from the generous use of fish sauce, an occasional break of sharpness from the onions, some heat and a light crustacean aroma from the little dried shrimps. That along with the nuttiness from the crushed peanuts and sweet from the sugar. Party in the mouth? Sure.

Competent if unexceptional stir fried kailan.

Pretty good pineapple fried rice Nana has. Chunks of pineapple, raisins, some seafood, cashews and chicken floss. This could be one of the better renditions I've had.

Fried omelette which was also competent. No excessive grease here.

We had some grilled pork. Wasn't too bad but these weren't freshly grilled. It was the only dish we had that wasn't freshly made to order. Could have been better if the jaew had packed more punch.
