Jaedang Samyan (Siam Square branch)

My pals had brought me to Jaedang Samyan in Siam Square when we were discussing street food for dinner. This is Michelin awarded in 2019 too.

The environment was cosy and seatings are limited. Nonetheless, we manage to get ourselves a table in the midst of peak hours. 

Dining Environment

The Thai herbal tea tasted something familiar but not exactly what we had in Singapore. It was not too sweet. After much discussion and "Googling", I finally learnt that this Thai Herbal tea is made up of Dried Bael Fruit.

The Grilled Pork Neck is another grilled food that I enjoyed from Thai Cuisine. Simply love the Chilli Sauce with peanuts and the fried garlic that topped the pork neck, elevating its taste.

Grilled Pork Neck - 129 Baht

While I'm getting used to my favourite dish "Larb Moo" aka Minced Pork Salad, my friends recommended this dish similar to the style but instead of having minced Pork, we had Grilled Pork Neck drenched with the minty and spicy sauce.

The spicy corn salad with salted egg was recommended on the menu. It was a mixture of corn kernels with long beans, tomatoes, shredded carrots and salted egg yolk. It's addictive and tasty.

Here's the staple dish of Thai Cuisine, Somtum aka the Papaya Salad. Enjoy the spiciness of shredded papaya with crunchy peanuts in a mixture of their tangy and spicy sauce.

I'm not very used to spiciness and although we requested for a less spicy version, I still find that I could not match the local tastebuds. The Hot & Spicy Soup was appetizing with the meat easily fell off from the bone and ingredients just as Enoki Mushroom, Tomatoes etc. It's addictive but the spiciness was too much for my stomach to take.

The Deep Fried Chicken Thigh was simply delicious. The skin was thin and crackling yummy while the meat was juicy and moist. Dipping them in the given sauce for an additional fiery kick,

While we often get to pair dishes with plain white rice in our country. I was kind of surprised the Thai do the pairing with Sticky Rice instead. The fragrant sticky rice was served wrapped in a transparent plastic sheet.

Sticky Rice - 20 Baht

While I mentioned that I would like to skip the rice, my Thai pals recommended me to tried out these Rice Noodles. It is smooth and silky, generally thinner than our Thick Bee Hoon.

Thank you Pals for making the arrangement for such a rare meetup. We will meet again.
