Below are some of my favourites and must-orders!
The Green Curry Sauce at Kai Siam is a true standout. This creamy, rich sauce pairs perfectly with their crispy chicken to create an incredibly satisfying and filling meal. With the addition of fluffy rice, greens, and an egg, every bite will leave you feeling fully satisfied and ready for more. The flavour is unique and bold, with just the right amount of spiciness to keep you coming back for more. If you’re a fan of Thai cuisine or just love a good, hearty meal, the Green Curry Sauce at Kai Siam is an absolute must-try.
Kai Siam’s Northern Thai Curry is quite unique and unheard of in Singapore. There is a sweet side to this curry sauce, as well as some spicy notes. The spaghetti they served with it was delicious as well! They also offer fusion flavours such as BBQ, Korean Sauce, Lemon Cream, and even Cheese in addition to Thai curry sauces.
Thai Lok Lok ($5) – Thai Food Woodlands
Kai Siam also offers a variety of sides for add-on and sharing, such as their signature Thai Lok Lok ($5), a dish of bite-sized meat and mixed ingredients that is paired with their delicious sauce. The owner’s passion for Thai cuisine shines through in their version of the famous Thai Lok Lok street snack, which they are excited to share with Singaporeans. Although it may be a bit on the sweeter side, the Thai Lok Lok is perfect for sharing with friends and family, making it a unique and exciting addition to your meal.
Grilled Chicken ($4.50 for three pieces) – Delicious Food in Woodlands
Another side that is worth a mention is their Grilled Chicken ($4.50 for three pieces), favourites of regulars at this no-frills eatery. The chicken is marinated to perfection in a blend of herbs and spices, resulting in a nice and chunky skewer that sets it apart from your traditional satay. If you love meaty and grilled skewers, this is a must-try dish for you.
Korean Fried Chicken
The Korean Fried Chicken was a hidden gem that left us wanting more! Not listed on the menu, this exclusive dish is a true culinary delight. Fresh cuts of chicken are coated in a signature crunchy batter and deep-fried, creating a perfectly crispy exterior that gives way to juicy and succulent meat inside. The finishing touch of tossing the chicken in a liberal dose of sweet and slightly addictive sauce makes this dish truly unforgettable. Be sure to ask the owner about this secret menu item, as it’s only available for those in the know. And keep your eyes peeled for other special menu items that may pop up from time to time, adding a touch of excitement and variety to your dining experience.
