I really really like the balacan fried rice here in Ofira. I actually didn't know its called Ofira because the signboard they have just says 'Enjoy Thai Food'. It is chucked in a small corner at level one of Far East Plaza which usually when i'm here im spoilt for choices. I actually also like the Pontien wanton mee that is next door and the E.A.T laksa.
So anyway, this balacan fried rice is very cheap, probably just $4 (cannot remember) and very tasty! Although it looks simple but its really good. Its a bit moist (the way i like my rice) and has its savoury taste.
They actually used to give a bit of cashew nuts too but they seem to have removed it. But overall, the mango they use and the onion goes very well with the rice. I like it a lot.
Do note that it typically does not come with the yellowish chunks on top, the yellowish white thing on top is crab meat that i requested to add. And do also note that they typically will give you a constipated you-are-asking-for-too-much-even-if-you-are-willing-to-pay look if you request for any top up. But i don't care, i pay for my food, i like my variety, i don't think its difficult. haha
They also have other Thai dishes that are cheap and decent too.
