Situated along Upper Thomson Road, Rochor Thai is helmed by chef-owner Joel Ong and offers authentic renditions of Thailand’s well-loved dishes. Start the meal with a bowl of clear tom yum soup with stewed chicken feet, a platter of spiced Thai fish cakes and grilled chicken satay for sharing. Rochor Thai specialises in fresh sea bass, farmed organically in Singapore’s Pulau Ubin. The stellar Thai assam seabass curry has an appealing bright orange hue and the vibrant aroma of kaffir limes. You can also have your seabass salt-baked, steamed or deep-fried. From the selection of grilled meats, try the popular grilled pork collar roasted with rice powder, chillies and tamarind. Seafood choices include lightly charred squid with homemade nam jim sauce, drunken prawns with basil, and the much-loved pad pong crab meat curry. Cleanse your palate with a bowl of iced salak—marinated snakeskin fruit—a dish rarely found in Singapore.
