Folks Collective

The moment you reach Folks Collective situated in Raffles Place , it feels as if you’ve been transported to Bangkok. It is a Thai-fusion restaurant filled with chatter and has an inherent hipster vibe which can be seen in the decor as well. The dispersed chairs, posters and medicinal chest drawers give a great vintage feel.

The Orders

We first ordered ‘Siam style fried rice’ which wasn’t very impressive. We had to wait a while to receiver our order – but they were in their soft-launch phase, so some teething troubles are to be expected. If you don’t eat egg, do ensure to state that when ordering. They also have a range of lunch sets which should be convenient for people who work in the CBD area. You can also get the standard fare from most Thai menus such as the Tom Kha and Green Curry.

A refreshing drink is always welcome and I went for the ‘Thai lemon iced Tea’ which had an interesting tangy twist to it.

The desserts on the menu seemed interesting and first we went for the ‘Ice cream Kati’ which is a mixture of coconut ice cream with traditional toppings and glutinous rice at the bottom. When you take a scoop across layers, the myriad flavors and textures work well together.

We are fans of brownies and always tend to order them. The ‘Brownie Cha Thai’ was well made and came in quite a sizable portion. Even if you are not dessert fans, try Thai desserts for a sense of variety. I’d suggest the ‘Mango Sticky Rice’.

I’d say the meal was value for money, considering the area in which the restaurant is situated. I would also give it credit for a lively atmosphere that encourages conversation. Definitely worth a visit.
