I have been wanting to try out Ah Loy Thai after reading this food review from Miss Tam Chiak. I lurrveeeeeeeee calamari very much and the sounds of this delicious melt-in-the-mouth butter calamari is too hard to resist!
Finally had the time to go down on one of the weekends with love! We reached at around 630pm and there was already a queue outside. The entire eatery was packed. So we queued for a little while, and it wasn’t long before we got a table for two.
As I’m kinda on a diet, I decided to share whatever main he’s eating. We ordered the pineapple fried rice, butter calamari and tom yum soup to share.
Can I say…. I freaking love this fried rice! It’s so so so tasty! Every single grain is coated with the ‘essence’ (I hate fried rice which still has white rice in it) and they were generous with the ingredients. The prawns used were fresh too.
This butter calamari dish is found on almost everyone’s table. It’s one of their signature dishes and a MUST TRY when you go to Ah Loy Thai. I’m glad we ordered it!
The butter sauce is not just butter that’s melted but they added some sort of sweet stuff to it. So it’s kinda savoury and sweet at the same time? Calamari was crispy and chewy inside. A really good combination and one of the best calamari dishes I have tasted :)
The tom yum soup is pretty spicy but very addictive. The sour and spicy blends well together (not too over on either side). Again, the ingredients in the soup were generous and fresh, which makes it pretty worth the price!
I’m definitely looking forward to visiting again soon! Do note their opening hours below if you’re visiting cause they close pretty early on weekdays & weekends :)
