Sabai Sabai Restaurant in Patong - Loving the Guey Teow Phad See-Ew @ Phuket [Thailand]

Come to think about it, i might have subconsciously heard of the word sabai on a number of occasions when i was in Thailand although the lazy ass in me couldn't be bothered to check out the meaning until i stepped foot into a restaurant named after the word.

One of many similar dining establishments along the stretch of road near Bangla Street; Sabai Sabai is actually a local greeting for 'everything's well / happy / good" and commanded a good rating of 4.5 on TripAdvisor with over 600 reviews!

Free WiFi to make us sabai. I forgot to take a picture of the interior although there's nothing memorable about it; might not be a bad thing as extensive decoration does translate into a higher price on the menu.

Onion Soup - French onion soup with a basket of homemade bread! I know i should have ordered Thai food but if it's on the menu and we were craving for some nice Western-style soup; why not right?

It's a pity, however, that while the soup was served scalding hot with a generous amount of onions; it didn't taste exceptionally strong of onions. For an onion lover (eating raw is fine with me), that's a great disappointment.

Fresh bread to the rescue so that the soup wouldn't have to go to waste! Simple; just dip the sliced bread into the bowl so that it can soak up the flavor for a better taste!

Kao Phad (Fried Rice) - such nondescript appearance surprised me as many chefs would beautify by adding more garnishes on top. Initial taste was one of expected blandness although once you took a few bites; the aroma of fried egg surrounding the each grain of rice intensified. My conclusion; not bad and never judge a dish by its look.

Pork Chop - we don't get a lot of places selling pork chop in Singapore and even if we can find a few, the pricing is usually too expensive at above S$20. At the very least, the one from Sabai Sabai was only about S$12-13.

Furthermore, you get two thick chunks of pork chop; they reminded me so much of the American Pork Loin Chop from Buckaroo in Singapore!

Sadly, the pork chops didn't seem to have any marination and although it didn't have that strong porky taste; chilli sauce would be required for me to stuff them into my mouth. I was more impressed with the appetizing stir-fried mushrooms, onions and bacon combo laid on top of the pork chops.

Guey Teow Phad See-Ew (Seafood) - my usual order for noodles in a Thai restaurant would be phad thai but my dad already had phad thai at Ruen Thai the day before and i thought it's good to have some variety.

Essentially like a dry, stir-fried version of horfun; this was epic! It was so flavourful, so delicious, so addictive and it's not just limited to the kuay teow; even the prawns and squids were cooked extremely well. I was constantly eyeing the noodles while trying my best to stuff in my pork chop. So envious of my dad!
