I don’t claim to be a food expert like most people does here, but will just like to give my two cents worth after years of eating and dining out.
PORN’S mission of selling authentic thai food with a soul sounds perfect for me to begin with. I never expect to be able to get my thai fix when the urge arises in Singapore anyway. Years of traveling to Thailand for diving and accustomed my taste bud to the wild world of thai cuisine. They may not be the healthiest choice around, but for instant “food o*****”, thai food rank high! And PORN’S definitely too!
My group of 4 ordered deep fried chicken with Garlic, prawn cake, fish cake,tom yum goong, kangkong and orange curry. Deep fried chicken is just like the street snck that lined up the whole siam shopping mall, where u see thais vendor just fried n fried serving u the best fried chicken, PORN’S version is less oily than what I expect but equally juicy and crispy.
I salivated the moment the tom yum was served. Strong punch of thai parsley and ginger seeps through my nose, and what is a better way to start a dinner than a tomyum. Fresh crunchy prawn and canned mushroom was inside the soup. Ingredient may have more variety but taste of soup is one of the best I had tried. Prawncake is their signature item and indeed it doesn’t fail me. The myth about prawn cake also puzzled me because you can never find thai prawn cake in Thailand but it is a common dish in Singapore thai restaurant, That aside, their prawn cake is genuinely value for money with their thickness of chopped prawn per piece. Each bite is flavourful with the freshness of prawn. Orange curry is the village curry I always had at chiang rai,soupy with cauliflower and sliced. Lotsa herbs was blended and mixed into the soup. It was more like a soup that curry. It is probably the way thai name their dishes, because chiang rai people called it village curry rathe than village soup as well.
Overall, it was a good gastronomic experience. Their staff are friendly and willing to serve as well. Good place, good food, good PORN’S.
