[Tasting] Un-Yang-Kor-Dai Singapore @ The Quay Hotel, 57 South Bridge Road

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai is a restaurant located at the Quay Hotel South Bridge Road, specializing in Isan (อีสาน) cuisine, which is typical of Northeast Thailand. Isan cuisine is said to feature predominantly glutinous rice, chili peppers and fish in their food.

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai has a casual comfy vibe. Its patrons were a good mix of locals and Thais. This is also a place where you could do wine or whisky with the food, or the good 'ol Thai milk tea.

For food, we tried the popular Leng Zaab, which is the prime pork and back ribs with Isaan spicy sour soup. The small portion was good for at least 3 pax as primary main course, otherwise, it was also good to be shared amongst 4 to 5 pax as a side dish.

Served in a square metal container, the pork ribs were lined and stacked up into a pile of meat mountain ready to be devoured by the hungry meatatarians. The service staff would then pour in the hot spicy soup. With a dash of rice wine and the flame from a burner, one watches as the fire licked through the top of the pile before partaking in the feast.

The spicy soup will hit you at all the right spots. Its tangy-ness would whet anyone's appetite, and the spice level was a good shiok as well. However, do remember to rest the stomach and not to drink too much of it, too fast. Goes very well with the white rice.

Scotch Eggs in Tamarind Sauce @$12.50
Glutinous Brown Rice (mix of black and white glutinous rice) served in kra-tips @$2
Signature Grilled Chicken (half) @$12

My favourite dish was the Red Curry with Grilled Chicken (Quarter), with lychee, tomato and sweet basil. It was a balanced wholesome flavours that worked really well together. It was tangy, savoury, sweet and fragrant spices all in one. Drizzled lots of those curry onto the glutinous rice for an uplevelling of flavours. Yummy!

If you are not feeling very hungry, then the stuffed whole squid with tom yum fried rice would be a good choice. Two huge whole squid, grilled to a right tenderness with a slight smokey flavour on its outer flesh. Its inside were stuffed full with tom yum fried rice, though I'd prefer if the spicy-ness of the fried rice could be up a notch.

Stuffed Whole Squid with Tom Yam Fried Rice @$23.90

Much like the squid, we were stuffed by the end of our meal. Food coma! Typically, if you are coming in a group of 4, I'd recommend to order the small Leng Zaab, the red curry and a plate of vegetables.

For desserts, we tried the Thai Milk Tea Pudding, the Trio Tingkat Delight, and the Rice Balls with Sweet Coconut Milk with Egg.

The flavours of the dessert in the tingkat and the rice balls with coconut milk, will definitely remind you of one thing. The bobo chacha!
