Khao kha moo

This khao kha moo which was essentially a sort of 5 spice braised pork trotters ,was introduced by a colleague who seems to be a regular down in these parts at Golden Mile Complex. This place (Sin Lai Lai Snack House, #01-30) serves a variety of Chinese Thai food and their braised pork trotters with rice is apparently one of the signature dishes. The meat of the pork was "fall off the bone" tender without excessive fats and accompanying skin. The gravy that was used to braise the pork seemed to be soy based with hints of cinnamon and cloves and is apparently used to simmer the eggs that come with this rice dish. The eggs cooked as such were in a way similar to tea leaf eggs, but lacked in the department of flavor. Still this turned out to be quite tasty and generously portioned for $4 and minimal fuss.

Will definitely consider coming back to get more of the khao kha moo and probably pineapple fried rice.
