Thai Affair, @ Central near Clarke Quay

No I don’t mean I am going to start writing an article about me meeting some hot chick from Bangkok at Clarke Quay.

This is well well worth a go if you in the vincinity, or actually even if you are not you should still go. Very hawker/food-court in style. But the food!!! WOW!!!

Thai Affair is in fact one of the nicest and most authentic little Thai places I have found on my travels in Singapore. And this was completely by chances when we went to our friend’s daughter’s birthday party at a cooking/cake shop (great fun – see Facebook), and whilst she was busy I kept taking Jude for little walks to keep him entertained. Every time I had to walk past the sign with all the food options.

Sod it – I’m going in – and so so glad we did. This has now given me another example of Laab Gai in Singapore to write about for the next EXMag article. Coming to a magazine near you soon. Sow what did we indeed eat. Not much, so even more reason to go back. This literally was a quick snack attack I could not resist. Walking past the sign above every 30 minutes with Jude was killer, so eat I had to ha ha.

Very interesting little dish this one. Up there with the best I have had indeed, and that’s here and locally in Thailand so so many times before

I just had to have it. I had to try the laab. Damn good it was too. Always every Laab I try is different. This was chili flake, I think from dried chilis being chopped up. See in mine I use paprika so the sauce is much much redder, but we have cooked the same dish. This was a cracker though. Really nice, bloody spicy it has to be said (that’s gonna hurt later), nice with mint in there and Spring onion and some cabbage I think on the bottom. Really really good thanks Thai Affair.

Ollie, like me, is a bit of a creature of habit. I also go for Tom Ka Gai or Laad Gai just to do the comparison from the previous I had. He chose this today. Oh boy winner winner. Not so limey, bit more on the coconut front - but creamy and spicy therefore with a little zing every now and then. Simply put - bloody delicious!

And my Mary had this. Woo Hoo. This was like a Thai version of the Chinese Pork Gold Coins from Bee Cheng Hiang. Sweet, porky little slabs - this time on a stick. Good choice babes.

So get to Central – pretty nice little shop centre as well, down by the river, at the bridge that separates Boat and Clarke Quay.

You want your Thai fix whilst there, make a bee-line downstairs to the food court and search out Thai Affair.

Just don’t don’t tell you’re wife if you are going alone that you are going for a quick Thai Affair, especially when you come back a bit sweaty and red from the chili. Clearly that would not look too good in her eyes.

“Sorry I took so long love, the queue to get my Thai Affair on the table was crazy.”

“But when I got it it was all over in seconds.”

“My Thai Affair was just delicious, I’ll be going back for more all the time!!!”

Hmmmmm – Nuff Said – word of advise – go together!!!
