Yet another E-Sarn That Cuisine restaurant is to be found up on Singapore’s Mount Sinai, at the Ridgewood Condominium complex just off Holland Road. Founding mother Achara – or Neng, as she is known to locals and regulars – has done it again, setting up another flagship for quality Thai food in one of Singapore’s prime residential areas. The residents of Ridgewood have it good here – fantastic Thai home cooked-style dishes created by a small army of handpicked Thai chefs.
E-Sarn Thai Cuisine takes its name from Isan or Isaan, the northeastern region of
Thailand famous for its specific culinary character. Isan cuisine is known for its use
of khao neow (sticky rice) and fiery hot chillies. These attributes have come to
typify much of Thai cuisine in its homeland and overseas, and it’s a tradition that is
carried through to the kitchen of this Ridgewood outpost of the E-Sarn Thai Cuisine
empire, located atop Singapore’s Mount Sinai behind Holland Road, in dishes such
as som tum (papaya salad), larb (minced meat salad), and gai
yang (grilled chicken).
Ridgewood Condiminium residents are lucky to have a slice of Thai cuisine paradise in their backyard with the addition of an E-Sarn Thai Cuisine restaurant to their already stellar facilities. Singapore locals should not be dismayed though, as owner Neng extends a warm welcome to everyone here at her Thai restaurant atop Mount Sinai, close to bustling Holland Road. At E-Sarn Ridgewood, the same philosophy applies: give Singapore residents the opportunity to eat the same way that Thai and Isan locals eat. With chefs handpicked and trained by Neng herself, the genius behind the E-Sarn project, you can count on having an authentic Thai cuisine experience no matter which E-Sarn restaurant you visit.
The best food in Singapore - have been here endless times and am never disappointed - and BYO too - unbeatable. Pad Thai to die for and the lime and chilli fish is incredible.
