Sawadikap! Located at Lebuh Tye Sin (commonly known as the 4th Street Club by the locals), Chern Ka’s Home Recipe is a relatively new Thai eatery in town. From its interior to the food menu, Chern Ka emphasize on localized tastes and flavours with their home recipe as its name suggested. Meanwhile, you could still find some of the authentic Thai food here.

The owner of the restaurant ran a family business before starting her journey in the food and beverage industry. The owner’s mother is a Thai who loves to cook and share all her dishes to friends and family. Hence, they decided to turn this into a new business opportunity. 

Established in the beginning of March 2020, Chern Ka constantly improves their food in order to cater to the locals. Thai cuisine is best known for its flavour, aroma and vibrant colours. One of the reasons that makes Thai food such a delicacy is the numerous spices and fresh herbs that they use in their recipes. Therefore, the owner and her mother even plant their own spices such as holy basil, mint and ginger at the garden area of the restaurant.
