Authentic Thai Cuisine By First Thai @ Purvis Street (Bugis)
This place probably need no introduction and you may have already been here multiple times before me! Nestled in an old school coffee shop, First Thai has been around for some time and been serving authentic Thai food ever since. Even their interior Thai influenced.
Operating hours at First Thai is relatively short, and is packed with people most of the time! No reservation allowed, so come early if you want to avoid queuing.
Let’s get straight to the food!
Green Curry – Very rich and creamy. Heavy with coconut base…a little less generous would had been perfect for me.
Pandan Chicken – Fragrant and chunky, couldn’t ask for more!
Broccoli – Edible, nothing to ‘wow’ about.
Fried Rice and Kai Lan – Our staple food and some vegetable to balance our diet a little better.
Phad Thai – One of the better ones around Singapore. Semi-wet and gooey (that’s how I describe and prefer), balanced on the sweetness and generous with their garnishing.
Sea Bass in Thai Sauce – Some protein for our muscles! Very delicious and appetizing gravy/soup and the fish was fresh!
After our meal, we met up with the SEA Games 2015 athletes at the games village, Swiss Hotel. Guns out!
Overall, First Thai was priced a little above average but with good portions and taste. I guess that even things out.
