When Aaron jio (invited) me to join him to try out the famous Flying Pig Thai crab meat omelette fried rice, I was positively absolutely thrilled. I had been wanting to taste this highly raved dish which had gone wildly viral on social media for the last few months. I also haven't been to Thailand for a very long time already and missed good Thai food 😪

Restaurant name: Flying Pig


Address: Golden Mile Complex, 5001 Beach Road, #01-39, Singapore 199588


Hours: 12:00 noon  - 3:00pm | 5:00pm - 10:30pm

Many people had the same idea on this Weds morning. We were here 30 minutes before opening and several people were already milling around outside, waiting for the restaurant to open.

I like the vibes - the din, the smell, the buzz. It felt like I am in Bangkok already.

The moment the tiny restaurant opened, nearly all the seats were taken up. Suggest one or two of you go straight to the counter to order, can't afford to be slow.

The menu for your reference, if you plan on going.

Our food came soon after we ordered. The first was Flying Pig's signature Omelette Fried Rice with Garlic Pork and Basil Pork. The presentation was as beautiful as advertised.

It's a huge portion enough for 2 - 3 people.

Don't take so many photos lo... . Quickly dig in.

The rice was anaemic looking, and somewhat less than lukewarm. The menu said it was fried rice but didn't taste like it - no wok hei, no aroma, almost no grease, and just a very slight savoury-sweet taste over the sweetness of boiled rice.

The fried rice was completely covered by a fried egg like a moist royal yellow blanket. On top was a crown generously studded with chunky crab meat like ivory jewels.

The crab meat was soft and didn't have the subtle squeaky bite of fresh or live crab meat. There also wasn't the characteristic sweet flavour of fresh or live crab meat but a faint flat fading brine taste.

There was also a generous amount of meaty prawns, shelled. The meat was soft and the sweet taste of prawn was not present or I didn't detect it.

The fried basil pork was mainly savoury-salty and traces of sweet. I could not make out any basil taste or aroma. In case it was just me, I asked around the table and the rest also couldn't discern the basil or it was very faint.

The fried garlic pork was savoury sweet but the garlic taste or aroma did not stand out.

Raw Shrimp with Spicy Sauce.

The good size peeled and deveined prawn felt sufficiently fresh (no off smell). It had a very slight slime, was soft but not mushy. It tasted sweet in the fresh prawn way and went well with the sharp spicy sour savoury dip. I just limited myself to one though as the raw prawn didn't feel sashimi grade.

Beef Noodle Soup.

The soup flavour was savoury sweet and likeable. The thin rice noodles were nicely done, so they were slurpy smooth and soft. They were tasty too as the strands picked up the soup's flavours well.

The beef shin was neither beefy nor sweet. It was chewy and faintly savoury flat tasting. The meat balls were savoury but the flavours seemed like from seasoning.

Moo Ping, Thai style grilled pork kebab.

The meat was firm-tender, chewy, nearly dry. It tasted very sweet with slight savouriness and subtle bit of toasty char. I enjoyed this partly because it reminded me so much of the streets and alleys of Bangkok where moo ping stands are at every corner.

The Thai milk tea was very sweet and doesn't have tea taste or smell.
