My dinner club went to Khaluna this month, and yum! Provided you’re a moderately adventurous eater, it is delicious. It is not a cheap dining experience, but you could try less things than we did.
Dinner club is just myself and two other people, and we tend to like similar things. Therefore, we are up for sharing dishes when it makes sense. Khaluna is definitely a place where you want to share.
We ordered the basil wings, which I’ve had at Lat 14 and they are amazing. We also had the Sakoo which our server recommended and he was not wrong! The Sakoo was kind of like a dumpling, but chewier outside, and super flavorful inside. I could have eaten a dozen. We had the Rainbow Rice as a salad, I was familiar with it from visiting Singapore right before Chinese New Year, and it was delicious. I could order just these three things for a lunch to share with a friend.
For entrees we got the Pineapple Noodles and the Duck Fried Rice (which doesn’t appear to be on the online menu, but we had it and it was great). The Pineapple Noodles would be a great summer dish, but given that we were there in February, I wish we had tried the Bucatini Talay, or the Massman, but oh well.
We had a passionfruit panna cotta for dessert, and it was a great sweet treat to end the evening. If you haven’t gone on a tropical vacation for a while, you could 100% go out to dinner here and feel like you’ve found yourself in the middle of vacation without the hassle of going to the airport.
How often do you try new restaurants? Where have you gone out to eat lately that you loved?
