It's no secret that the best Thai food comes from street vendors sprawled across the country.
But with the Thai government clamping down on some of these makeshift street hawkers, your go-to roadside stall for crispy Thai pancake might have already disappeared in a moment's notice.
Fret not, as Blue Jasmine brings a slice of bustling street food culture into a contemporary dining setting.
Located at the spanking new Park Hotel Farrer Park, the halal-certified restaurant adopts a communal dining concept.
Led by Chef Bright Kan San, the restaurant uses only herbs and spices imported from Thailand for its authentic dishes.
Here's what you should try:
2. Hearty broths
We loved the ever classic Tom Yum Sea Prawns($20), a symphony of champignon mushrooms, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaf, glanagal root, sour tomato, chilli and lime juice in either red or clear soup.
Breaking the surface were massive prawns that soaked up the coconut goodness and the mild spiciness of the tom yum broth — ideal for those with low tolerance for spice.
Another hot favourite, which was also easy on palette, was the Crabmeat Yellow Curry ($26). Made with yellow curry paste and peppered with shreds of sweet crab meat, the curry is best enjoyed with silky smooth vermicelli.
