This is the son-in-law everyone wishes they had. Tucked into a quiet corner of Johnston Street—Son In Law serves up casual, hawker-style Thai cuisine that’s as playfully Instagram-friendly as it is tasty (a rare feat, nowadays).
If you never grew out of fairyfloss (hell no), Son In Law have the drink of your dreams. Rainbow fairy floss milk drinks are created by layering sweet, pastel coloured milk with marshmallows (OBVIOUSLY IT WASN’T SWEET ENOUGH) before being topped with fairy floss in the shape of your choosing. A yellow baby duck, white & pink bear, cartoon-character Mamegoma and Hello Kitty are all currently available. We wish you luck in all your decision-making endeavours.
New to the menu is also the Sizzling Roti. Two new flavours are on offer: milo or Thai matcha tea and the classic ,old favourite Thai milk tea. Roti hits the table layered on a hot pan, along with marshmallows, vanilla ice cream and a variety of toppings (sweet red bean paste and crushed cashews , if you’re leaning towards the matcha option). Syrup gets poured over the roti for a sizzlin’ hot end.
Between fairy floss and dessert, there are platefuls of fragrant charcoal Pad Thai and sticky, spicy Sriracha fried chicken ribs. Other highlights from the share-style menu include crispy soft shell crab and tiger prawns on traditional green curry, or twice cooked crispy pork belly.
Needless to say, prepare to leave a little more than full.
