More from Tawandang Singapore

Cockles

The food at Tawandang has never really been a huge draw for me. But I like the beer hall thing, and we came here this afternoon to take advantage of their Happy Hour. In the process, we picked up a few nibbles to go along with our brews, such as a crispy deep fried fish as well as this blanched cockle and noodle thing. It came with fresh lettuce, herbs, and sauce on the side, leading one of our friends to suggest that this was supposed to be eaten "kalbi-style," or all wrapped up like Korean BBQ. It's always fun to play with food while drinking.

Pork Larb and Pork Knuckle

We also grabbed some other items, like this pork salad, which wasn't as spicy as I would have liked, but those dried peppers on top provided extra heat if one wanted to bite into them (and they were generous with that gritty rice powder - yay!). If you look closely in the background, you can see their signature pork knuckle too. We were a bit surprised to find that the skin was a little sweet, but it was crispy and delicious, and really wasn't that out of place with the Thai chili sauce. I still have yet to hear the band here play though.

Tawandang is by far my most favorite Thai restaurant in Singapore. Most of their dishes taste pretty authentic.
