2013 MICHELIN GUIDE RECOMMENDED

Basil Canteen is a pioneer of sorts in the former Jackson Brewery landmark building. This voluminous Thai restaurant keep company with its surrounds by sporting and industrial look through brick walls, oversized windows, metal stairs, and rising ceiling. Find a communal table downstairs and smattering of smaller seats on the upstairs mezzanine.

Groups of suits at lunch and local by night come for the like of pau pia yuan, paper-thin rolls of crunchy cucumber, bean sprount, herbs, and shrimp in lime vinaigrette; and sizzling drunken beef with Kaffir lime, chili, and lemongrass. The kang kua goong, sweet prawns and tender chunks of Japanese pumpkin stewed in red coconut curry, is at once spicy, creamy, tangy, and absolutely delicious.
