LAttitude Thai features authentic Thai cuisine under the guise of sweet curries, savory stir-fried noodles, and hearty entrees served in a relaxed, casual atmosphere. The menu showcases innovative appetizers, such as chicken wings stuffed with ground pork, glass noodles, and vegetables ($8.25), as well as classic main courses, including pad thai with chicken and prawns ($8) and chicken-pumpkin yellow curry ($8.50), which turns back into chicken-stagecoach curry after midnight. Staunch hunger pains with a filling entrée, such as spicy lemongrass prawns ($10) or sweet-and-sour pork ($8) with pineapple, mixed vegetables, and a conflicting blend of dispositions.
Employing exotic spices, fresh vegetables, and sweet sauces, the culinary experts at Singapore Express craft a full menu of authentic Thai cuisine including full-flavored curry and noodle entrees. Groups of two or four jumpstart palates with one or two appetizers, choosing between lighter selections such as steamed chicken dumplings and heavier subjects including deep-fried tofu and the meaning of life. Main courses vary in consistency from the broth-based chicken-coconut soup—a blend of swimming Thai herbs clinging to straw-mushroom buoys in a sea of coconut broth—to duck red curry served with steamed white rice. Table denizens can also rev up a stolid maw by imbibing signature dishes such as the Indonesian nasi lemak—a bed of rice cooked in coconut milk and crowned with chicken wings, fried fish, and a fried egg—or a spicy mint pork leg, which can be used to hold up a wobbly table.
Waiters weave among columns, bearing an array of Thai dishes that match the bright oranges and greens that leap from the decor in Wild Thai Restaurant's dining room. Chefs stir tart lemon sauces and simmer duck in a coconut broth with red curry, tomato, bell pepper, and basil, the resulting crimson sauce complementing the swaying orchids on the tabletops. Glowing sconces bring to life the gilt accents on statues and paintings, which shimmer above plates of flat rice noodles. Sriracha sauce splashes a pepper-infused bite across meats marinated overnight. The burn is counteracted by thai iced coffee, which is traditionally allowed to steep tableside and mixed with sweet condensed milk or thrown into the face of somebody who thinks Home Alone 3 is the best Home Alone.
Stylish and spacious, boraan offers a posh setting in which to enjoy its artfully prepared Thai dishes. The menu features the traditionally succulent suspects, flanked by a redolent lineup of fried rice, stir-fry, and red, green, and yellow curries. Meanwhile, the signature seafood rad nah adorns its noodles with flavorful shrimp, mussels, scallops, calamari, crab, and chinese broccoli in a garlic-bean gravy sauce ($17.99). A BYOB policy and no corkage fee, as well as vegetarian and gluten-free options, ensure that boraan not only meets all culinary expectations but also extends them a handshake and a collectible business card.
