Thai Food in Singapore

Over the course of a week, I had Thai food twice in 2 very different Thai restaurants. The first was at Nara Thai. A quick google search reveals that it is a pretty popular restaurant in Thailand. The beau and I had an afternoon to kill before his flight that night and we were just wandering around Orchard Road before the start of a movie. He had a craving for Thai Food and it was the only one I remembered in Ion.

I ordered one of the dishes on their “popular” menu, which was the Thai Boat noodles with beef. The beau, as usual, went with something spicy and had the green curry chicken. we also ordered some prawn cakes. I thought the prawn cakes were pretty good but wasn’t super impressed with the chili. The boat noodles was good. The soup was quite sweet and satisfying. The Beau did not think that the curry was hot enough.

The meal was a bit expensive, given that we had 2 main dishes and 1 appetizer, it came up to $60. But then again, we were in the middle of the shopping district. I did enjoy my meal overall. I probably will return again, at some point, with friends for a small celebration or something. But this probably won’t be my go-to Thai place.

After the Beau left, I met up with another friend after work for some chilling out time before greeting 2017. We were at East Mall and Thai food seemed like a fairly neutral food choice. GreaThai was located at one of the storefronts of East Mall. It was fairly quiet when we went in at 1pm-ish.

Again, there were just 2 of us so we weren’t able to order much. I ordered the “chicken porridge”, which by Cantonese standards is NOT real porridge. Its just “tong fun” or rather soup with rice to me. 20161231_133859The porridge that arrived in front of me was really pretty good. It definitely tastes different compared to the one I get from Aoy Boat Noodles at the T3 Changi Airport, which had a lot of ginger in the soup. The one at GreaThai was a bit sweeter than the one at the airport. My lunch companion ordered some fishcakes (very good with the prawn chili offered) and had a rice dish of some sort.

Overall, the food really was quite good. And it wasn’t too noisy in there and so we were able to chill out and talk for a bit without being interrupted. It wasn’t like, THE BEST, Thai food in the world, but if you wanted a go-to place to chill out with friends and eat, its pretty good. And the menu isn’t exorbitantly expensive either.
