Fans of Thai cuisine are in for a ‘fan-Thai-stic’ news! Nestled on the second storey of Royal Square, Baan Ying has rolled out their latest ‘The Great Baan Ying Brunch’ – semi-buffet line that features an array of popular & also rarely seen Thai dishes during the weekend! Only priced at $$38.80++ per adult and $19.40++ per child (4 to 10 years old), this semi-buffet from Baan Ying is a steal!

The buffet comes with a choice of main course (4 dishes for you to choose from) alongside 12-15 appetisers, sides and desserts on rotation every week. Some of the highlights include Kiew Krop Na Tung (Crispy Wanton Skin with Pork and Shrimp Dip), Yum Pla Foo (Crispy Fish Flakes with Mango Salad Dressing), Kaeng Ped Moo (Pineapple Curry with Pork) and many more! On top of that, the buffet also offers kid-friendly staples as well as a dedicated play area specially set up for the weekend! And that means you (parents) can eat in peace 😉

Planning for a family outing this weekend? Why not head over to Baan Ying for a sumptuous Thai spread without breaking the bank? Oh yes, I’m super in love with the cosy ambience as well. Perfect place for you to take ootd too!

Best thing to wake up to on a weekend morning – a table full of delicious food! I won’t be sharing every single dish in the buffet but I’ve selected some of my FAV (saliva forming again liao)

Starting our buffet first at the DIY Thai Salad and I have to warn you guys first: Do not put so much chilli padi into your salad unless you can eat spicy! If I’m correct, the staff only put two chilli padi into my salad and I’m already think it’s too spicy for me! But either then it being too spicy for me, I really liked the flavour of it; very refreshing and salad was so crunchy. Spicy but it just makes you wanna go for another mouthful! Goes really with a fresh coconut!

Pair these vegetables with traditional Thai dip – Nam Prik Ong (Thai Shrimp Paste)

Yum Woon Sen (Glass Noodle Salad)
Another appetising salad from the buffet line! Refreshing and literally can’t stop after the first mouth!

Larb Moo Tod (Thai Style Minced Pork Ball)
Fried to perfection, the pork ball wasn’t too tough or too oily! Dip them into Thai chilli sauce for maximum pleasure!

Mu Tod Nga (Baan Ying White Sesame Pork)
Best to have them while it’s hot cos we left the pork on the table for quite a while and it was a tad too tough for us!

Yum Pla Foo (Crispy Fish Flakes with Mango Salad Dressing)
OMG! This was damn good! Please do not judge a book by its cover – cos initially I thought this doesn’t look promising but it turns out to be one of my favourite at the buffet. Super addictive with the mango salad dressing. So good I went back for more servings! If you see this at the buffet line, go snatch it first!

Kiew Krop Na Tung (Crispy Wanton Skin with Pork and Shrimp Dip)
Another one of my favourite dish at Baan Ying! The dip was really good – has that strong coconut flavour which again, I went for a few more servings!

Kai Jiew Koong (Omelette with Shrimp & Onions)
As you can see, the omelette is stuffed with generous servings of shrimps and onions! Goes really well with the fried rice!

Not forgetting about the #gram before we dig in!

Also, got ourselves refreshing drinks (fresh coconut and blue pea) to go with the hearty food!

Oh yes, the buffet also includes a choice of main and here’s two of them which I thought you guys should go for!

Bone-In Iberico Pork Chop (add. $9.80)
Served in a sizzling pan, the pork chop was well-cooked, flavoursome and not too tough!

Pan-Fried Salmon Steak
Salmon was not overcooked – skin was crispy and the meat was tender. No fishy taste at all!

Ending the satisfying meal with some coconut jelly:)

Remember what I told you! Baan Ying is a nice place to take your ootd shots! So, take a few before you leave the restaurant!
