Since the first time I passed by Soi 60 when we walked the dog at Robertson Quay, I have wanted to try them out. I finally asked a friend to join me for dinner at Soi 60.
This Thai restaurant has very much hipster vibes and it looks very much more like a drinking bar than the usual Thai restaurant.
The menu was not as extensive as what we see in Thai restaurant. It has a more focus and specialise selection I suppose.
We started with the Betel Leaves. It has picked crab with caramelised coconut. We tried eating only the crab meat first but I find it a little to salty while my friend find it a little fishy. When it was eaten together with the Betel Leaf, somehow, the subtle betel leaf fragrance together with the crab gave a refreshing effect.
There were several items on the Chef Nam’s Special and we decided to try the Crispy Snapper which consist of a whole snapper with three flavour sauce. The snapper was fresh and the best part was it was de-boned. We couldn’t really taste three flavour from the sauce. It was simply a sweet and sour tomato based sauce.
How could we not have curry when having Thai food? We have a Green Curry with Chicken. If you prefer, you can opt for Tofu instead. It came with a Chicken Drumstick. The green curry was spicy enough with a good fragrance of spice but I find it a little too sweet, I suppose due to the additional coconut milk drizzled on the top as a garnish. I would prefer no additional coconut milk drizzled.
Lastly, to end our meal, as always, desserts is very much appreciated. We wanted to have both the sticky rice and the Tapioca but we were quite full by now so we ordered only the Tapioca, thinking that the sticky rice would be a little too much. When we were served the cup of dessert shown above, we were puzzled. As we were looking for our Tapioca. Though tapioca was missing, it was a refreshing delicious tasting dessert. It was made up of Lychee, pineapple diced and sago with some coconut milk.
Soi 60 serve pretty authentic delicious Thai food with a modern hipster setting. A nice restaurant to gather with some family and friends over a meal.
