"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

Absolute Thai

My first visit there was quite good. I thought that their bee hoon tom yam soup was spicy and flavourful. Besides, the portion was quite substantial. However the chicken wings were small. Thai iced milk tea was quite refreshing.

The second time I was there was with my cousins. We ordered quite a bit. Their green curry was not bad on the first taste, but upon second tasting, it became a little “jelat”. The coconut milk was too much and the chicken breast meat tasted of the “frozen fridge”. Fail.

The clear tom yam soup was not spicy and my cousins said it tasted too much of a certain spice which we couldn’t really determine what was it. However the prawns were big and luckily they tasted fresh.

Pandan leaves chicken were a bit tasteless. Moreover, they were too small.

Phad Thai was not too sweet. Maybe one of the better ones I’ve eaten so far. Pineapple rice was also not bad.

Our free red ruby dessert (upon $30 expenditure) was refreshing. Crunchy red bits wrapped in a layer of red jelly-like coating.

Fragrant steam rice at $1 per plate. Prices exclude 7% GST and 10% service charges.
