Revisiting Un-Yang-Kor-Dai

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, South Bridge Road

S'been a while since our last and first time at Un-Yang-Kor-Dai. The restaurant has expanded with larger seating capacity. The vibe here for Thai food feels somewhat like how Tambuah Mas is to Indonesian food.

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, cha ron

Cha ron was thick, creamy and not excessively sweet. Nice.

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, deep fried prawn & scallop cake

These were deep fried prawn and scallop cakes. Underneath the crispy surface was fluffy and tender almost like crushed tofu or egg white. Couldn't definitively discern prawn or scallops in it but it was seafood-y and pretty tasty.

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, red curry roast chicken lychee

Pretty impressed by their rich red curry with grilled chicken. Think sweet, fruity, spicy and creamy altogether. Pretty lemak stuff. Menu mentioned lychee and tomatoes but there's also mango and pineapple. This one has just stepped up to replace the panaeng roast duck curry from Sawadee Thai as my favourite fruity roast bird curry. 👍🏼

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, minced pork omelette

Omelette with minced pork not bad. 

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, stir fried morning glory garlic chilli

What was kickass with rice was the stir fried morning glory with chilli and garlic. I think I tasted fish sauce and oyster sauce in it too.

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, tom yum mama minced pork prawns

Did not expect the tom yum mama noodles with prawns and minced pork to be in so large portion. Broth was sweet, tangy and spicy while those large prawns were fresh and sweet. A little refined but not bad.

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai, sea bass tom yum coconut

Part of their festive menu included a sea bass tom yum coconut soup. From the picture, we were given the impression that it would be like tom kha gai but the real thing didn't have coconut milk. The broth was made with coconut juice. Slightly disappointed but the tangy spicy soup was delicious and the thick slices of fish were fresh and good quality.
