Bangkok Jam’s New Menu [Media Invite]

imageLocated on the second floor, near the escalator is Bangkok Jam. It is a rather open-concept restaurant. The tables have a glass top with very colourful pop-art designs. I tried their thai milk tea that tasted rather diluted and nowhere as sweet as I had half expected it to be.

image1. Green Papaya Fresh Spring Rolls with Zesty Som Tam Dressing

Lunch reaches a pinnacle with the presentation of the colours of the vegetables definitely brought out the appetizing factor for the dish. The dish was always well plated, but it was way too spicy for my liking. I’m also not a fan of springs rolls that aren’t fried.

2. Grilled Australian Wagyu Beef Short Plate Salad with Chilli Lime Dressing

Each and every slice of the grilled australian wagyu beef was juicy and tender. The chilli lime dressing on the other hand boasts a hint of saltiness paramount for the spiciness to stand out.

3. Stir-fried Kway Teow with Sriracha Sauce, Cuttlefish & Chicken / Pork

This dish cleanses the palate with its sweet and savoury impression of pad thai. The sriracha sauce wasn’t as spicy as I had expected it to be. The kway teow had a distinct wok-hei taste but without the wok-hei fragrance. Bangkok jam was generous with their ingredients. Every mouthful of kway teow was accompanied with some cuttlefish, chicken or pork.

Overall : A cosy ambiance for a nice family meal on a weekday or weekend. The food here tries to look reasonably priced without trying to over promise.
