Situated on the outskirts of town, Patara Fine Thai at Tanglin Mall serves up a taste of authentic Thai food to locals, tourists and expatriates alike. Outfitted with ornate flourishes and red-brown accents, the restaurant beckons diners in with its warm, traditional decor.
To share, order the yum som-o, a fresh pomelo and prawn salad tossed with lemongrass and chilli jam dressing, or the Patara Premium appetiser platter for two, which comprises a selection of house signatures. The latter includes chor muang, flower dumplings with caramelised chicken, turnip and peanut fillings, with a coconut cream reduction topping; and porpai ped, shredded duck wrapped with leek and served with prune sauce.
Follow this with seekrong gae, a succulent rack of lamb marinated with lemongrass and served with glutinous rice pancake.
As for dessert, order the tab tim krob, a Thai-style bubur chacha with each ingredient prettily presented here in different vessels.
