    Annathai-Kitchen

    Tucked along the crowd-rousing Pulau Tikus, Annathai-Kitchen is drawing in the crowd for their economy rice and familiar Thai fares like green curry and seafood tomyam. However, it would be a crime to leave without gobbling their Thai Pork Knuckle Rice. Nothing to shout about the rice, but the pork meat is amazingly addictive. Sitting beneath the flaky skin is the meat that slides from the bone with the finest touch. For a spicy kick, dip in the homemade chili sauce. Hold on, you can also opt for their Vinegar Pork Knuckle which is extremely tender with fatty layers and the gravy certainly wins with a mix of sourness.
