I quite like Thai food. I associate Thai food with beach holidays in Phuket so I’m usually in a happy mood when we have Thai. Ha.
We recently discovered a new eatery in our neighbourhood and decided we’d check it out one afternoon.
It was relatively quiet on a weekday afternoon which was nice. The casual family restaurant is nestled amidst HDB shops selling all sorts of random knick knacks. Right across the restaurant is a kopitiam (there must be no less than 5 kopitiams within walking distance of each other!).
After a thorough look at the menu, I decided I’d be adventurous and order….
Ok, I was being sarcastic. This is not being adventurous. This is, in fact, being downright boring to the max because I order this ALL THE TIME at Thai eating places.
Tee hee hee.
But I really love it! What’s there not to like? Fried egg – check. Sloppy chicken with gravy – check. White rice – check. YUMS.
The boy had thai noodles. Or as the Thais call it:
We also decided to be greedy and order a side of stuffed chicken wings to share.
Overall, I’d say that the food was pretty decent for a neighbourhood. It wasn’t cheap though (considering you can get kopitiam food at a fraction of the cost 20 steps away). I cannot remember how much we paid (about $40?) but I remember thinking it was quite an expensive casual meal. Then again, if you’d like some decent Thai food in the neighbourhood, this is a good place to check out. Oh and the place isn’t air-conditioned but it was pretty comfortable despite the noon heat because there were loads of ceiling fans going at high speed. What I like about the place is also how you can almost imagine that you’re in Thailand as the place is decked out pretty authentically (is there such a word?) – just make sure you don’t look too far out across at the kopitiam and the HDB blocks.
I am unable to provide you with the exact address but it’s at Serangoon North opposite the big Chinese temple. Helpful, yes? Heh.
