Chanced upon this hidden gem when I visited Sembawang yesterday and I knew HAD to review it. JJ Thai Cuisine opened its second outlet at Sembawang this year and it serves authentic Thai Cuisine along with Mookata that are available on weekdays and on certain weekends.

 Menu
(More on their Facebook page HERE)

We had:
 Thai Milk Tea - $3

I'm not really a fan of Thai milk tea because the ones I've had are always too sweet for my liking and lacking the flavor. This though, had a good balance of both tea and milk, definitely one of the better ones I've had.

 Stir-fried kang kong belachan - $6 

Nothing too special about this, just the typical Kang kong belachan you get at Zi char stores but a little spicer! 

 Stir-fried minced chicken with hot basil leaves - $9

Wasn't as spicy as I thought it would be, but definitely delicious! 



 Clear Tom Yam Soup (Seafood) - $8

I had to post multiple photos of this to emphasize on the amount of ingredients that were in the soup. For just $8, this was definitely value for money! It came with 2 large fresh prawns, thick fish slides, plenty of squid and mushrooms. They say the clearer the soup, the spicier it would be.
This though, had the right amount of kick to it! 

 Homemade Thai prawn cake - $10

Our favorite dish! 
I would highly recommend this dish to anyone that visits JJ Thai. It might be the most expensive appetizer out of the lot, but this my friends, had PLENTY of prawn meat stuffed in it.
It was like 95% prawn meat and 5% flour or smth. 


Service:
The service was impeccable, and our food was served to us within 10 minutes
(I'm still wondering how they managed to do that)

Atmosphere:
Looks like your typical Thai restaurant! The place is a little small, so you might have to come earlier on weekends! They also offer outdoor seating on the days when they serve Mookata.

Hope this helped!
Toodles!
