MAY: 5 readers stand to win SET DINNER FOR TWO
This month’s restaurant takes its name from a fragrant culinary herb. Choose to dine al fresco and enjoy hot and piquant food while admiring the Kallang Basin. The mall it’s housed in was just completed last year and has an indoor rock climbing wall. Clues: turn up the heat with sauces nam prik kapi and nam prik mamuang!


Sawadee-lish! We turned up the June heat with the piquant dishes at Basil by ThaiExpress. Our 10 Makan on BiTES diners dug into spicy nam prik mamuang and cooled down with homemade lod chong and mango sticky rice. We also enjoyed the signature grilled beef salad, fluffy fresh prawn omelette and the dry Thai-style seafood hor fun.

Located at Kallang Wave Mall and right beside the Singapore Sports Hub, we also soaked up the celebratory SEA Games atmosphere.

Thank you @Basilbythaiexpress for the yummilicious dinner!
