Son In Law
"Loved LOVED the Thai milk tea roti dessert!"
The son-in-law you wished you had—Son In Law offers seasonal dishes in addition to their permanent menu (usually, the specials are only available for a few months). Expect the most creative, Insta-worthy culinary feats (because folks, these plates practically style themselves).
Tucked into a quiet corner of Johnston Street, menu highlights include the new chocolate magic ball with crepe cake. Impeccably tempered chocolate comes in character shapes including Despicable Me minions, Totoro, Doraemon or Winnie The Pooh (because your mom was wrong, and you can play with food). Each cake is layered with strawberries, crushed Oreos, vanilla ice cream and served with your choice of three flavours (Thai milk tea, coconut pandan, Nutella).
If you never grew out of fairy floss (hell no), Son In Law have the drink of your dreams. Start by choosing your fave soft drink (including options like Thai milk tea or matcha milk tea because #youcanneverhavetoomuchsugar) and top it with fairy floss in the shape of your choosing. Think: Hello Kitty, Pikachu and unicorns. Good luck choosing just one.
New to the menu is also the sizzling mango with sticky rice, coconut cream, sesame and mung bean. Pineapple fried rice with fried shallot, carrot and cashew nuts; or soft shell crab with green papaya salad, dried shrimps, peanut, chilli, tomato and green beans are other options.
Between fairy floss and chocolate magic balls, there are fragrant Son In Law eggs and baskets filled with zingy fried chicken ribs.. Other highlights from the share-style menu include the twice-cooked crispy pork belly.
Needless to say, prepare to leave a little more than full.
