Thanying Restaurant

Of late, I have been trying to get my parents to try out new restaurants instead of the same old thing every time. When I say “same old thing”, I really do mean that! My parents are perfectly fine with eating at Sushi Tei three times a week! The problem partly stems from the fact that my father is a Pescetarian, and my mother is a health abiding citizen, so Japanese soups and fish fit their idea of healthy and not meat fare.

But being a food blogger, I find this extremely limiting and I’ve kinda reached the last straw. I’ve decided to take my parents to sample new places whether they like it or not! Thank god the results have been quite promising. Just today, I brought my parents to try out German food at Werner’s Oven in East Coast Road! That’s really quite a feat, but as always, the deal sweetener is when I say, “it’s okay, the bill is on me” !!!!!

We had a lovely meal at Thanying too, thanks to some vouchers I managed to lay my hands on. I think Thanying has seen better days in terms of numbers of patrons. My parents say that a decade ago, going to Thanying would have been a highlight. Well it still is, and the food is really very good, so it’s a pity that the restaurant was about only 1/4 full on the two occasions we had lunch there last month and the month before.

Started off the meal with 2 soups. The first soup was an appetite pleaser, ie the Tom Yam soup. Lots of fresh prawns and mushrooms but be careful about not slurping too much soup too quickly. It was damn spicy even though the menu said “hint of spice”!
