Penguin's Kitchen

Looking for some authentic Thai Food without breaking the bank? Penguin's Kitchen might be just the place that you are looking for. The place is not hard to find if you know the famous fish head steamboat, Tian Wai Tian, at Upper Serangoon as its just located behind.

Refreshing drink for me and kind of beat the spice at a later part when spicy food arrived.

Thai Iced Lemon Grass Tea - $4
The so called healthy dish that many may turned to. The vegetable was pretty tasty with distinct "Wok-Hei" taste. The sauce that drenched the greens were savoury too. Crunchy and smelled good with fried onions topping.

Stir Fried Kai Lan
This was the first time we ever had a mixed mushroom clear tom yum soup rather than seafood, chicken or prawns as ingredients. The clear Tom Yum soup had its temperature maintain as it was served in a hot pot under the fire. Tasted sour and fiery even with us removing the chilli padi from the pot. Though it feels "shiok" but the spiciness gets intense as we drank more. Luckily we had ordered some non spicy food to munch on, balancing our taste buds.

Tom Yum Soup Clear (Mixed Mushrooms)  冬炎杂菇汤 - $10
The Thai Prawn Cakes were definitely worth mentioning here. Though price was abit on a high side, I guessed that's the quality we paid for. Besides serving piping hot, exterior was crispy. It was soft when we bite it down and dipping the plum sauce makes this bar bite tasted so perfect.

Thai Prawn Cakes - $10 (3 Pcs) 
All of us love the Thai Basil minced meat. Its a great dish to order especially for sharing and was marked as a recommendation in the menu. We had chosen pork over the other 3 selections like chicken, seafood and mixed mushrooms. Yes, this dish is best to go with a bowl of white rice.

Stir Fried Hot Basil (Pork) 九层塔猪肉碎 - $12
Crispy omelette was offered in onion, minced pork, minced chicken or prawns with each cost differently. It looked pretty interesting, serving in a wrap form and its not our usual kind of omelette that takes the circular size of the plate. Its soft and delectable.

Crispy Omelette (Onion) 洋葱炸蛋 - $8
Added the Papaya Salad with salted egg. It tasted somehow different from the ones we usually had with bigger shrimps included.

Papaya Salad (Som Tum Thai) added with Salted Egg 木瓜沙拉加咸蛋 - $10 
It was a definite spicy experience for us. Nevertheless, it had reminded us that the original food in Thailand do have such level of spiciness. Overall, there are both hits and misses from Penguin's Kitchen. If you love hot stuff like the true blue Thai people, you will probably find the food to your liking.
