THA: FoodLoft @ Central Chidlom

Chilly lemongrass drink to freshen up!

From Thai to Greek cuisine, Chinese to Indian dishes, you can discover a lot of things under one roof. Having an open kitchen concept, FoodLoft allows customers to see the cooking process in each of the stalls. You'll get a card as soon as you enter the restaurant, which you give to the staff when you get something from one of the stalls for he/she to register your order. When you leave, you give the card to the cashier and pay for your food.


Pad Thai with Shrimp THB 115.00 (~S$4.55)
Taste: 7/10

I tried the pad thai by Thai Cuisine, a popular Thai dish of stir-fried rice noodle which primarily uses fish sauce, tamarind juice and eggs, among other ingredients. It wasn't spicy at all, for it wasn't cooked with any kinds of chili; sad, but perhaps done to cater to individuals who can't take spicy food. The taste was there, but it lacked the wok hei fragrance, or loosely speaking, the smoky aroma from stir-frying. Pika's advice: Don't forget to add chili put on the stall if you wish before you bring your food to your table!


Seafood Congee THB 100.00 (~S$4.00)
Taste: 7.5/10

I also tried the seafood congee by Tidbit Treasure. While it wasn't thick, it was pretty flavourful with an adequate amount of seafood such as fish slices, squid rings and shrimps, topped with a few slices of ginger and scallions to make the dish fragrant.


Lemongrass Drink THB 35.00 (~S$1.40)
Taste: 8/10

My camera ran out of battery, so I had no choice but to use my not-so-good phone camera to take a picture of the drink. Exuding a strong, tantalising aroma without being too sweet, it was a superb drink to combat the sweltering heat of 41 Centigrade outside, which was the highest temperature I've ever experienced.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 7.5/10
Ambience: 8/10
Overall: 7.5/10

I enjoyed the dim lighting of the restaurant, and I'd love to go back to try every other cuisine offered by FoodLoft.
