Thai Food in Singapore

Good Thai eats that i’ve tried in Singapore so far.

~Thai Wanton Noodle ($5.50): Can’t go wrong with their signature dish! I like the springy texture of the noodles, and the overall flavour after mixing up the ingredients! Highly recommend adding on more pork lard, and some chilli flakes for even more shiok-ness!

~Pork Knuckle Noodle ($6): The pork knuckle was really tender and well braised! Uses the same noodles as the Thai wanton noodle.

~Tom Yum Kuay Teow Soup ($5): Wished the Tom yum flavour was more robust / spicier! The kuay teow was not bad though, had a nice silky texture.

This was really sumptuous! It’s crunchy and seasoned with a nice garlicky flavour! Must order as a side dish to share or even all for yourself!

Was craving for some boat noodles and decided to look online for some recommendations and found this place, which serves boat noodles at only 80 cents per bowl!

There are 2 choices of soup here - Red Tom Yum & Herb Boat Noodle Soup! Both were good, but the Red Tom Yum soup stands out more with its spice and robustness! You can also choose from 2 types of noodles (glass noodles / rice noodles), as well as choice of topping (prawn, beef ball, beef slice, pork ball, pork liver, pork slice). My favourite / recommended combo is the red tom yum soup w/ glass noodles & pork ball! Really addictive, and if you’re not ‘careful’, you might just keep ordering and ordering! 😂

Do you dare to challenge the heat? Heat being the spice from Dramaqueen Chilli SG Thai Crispy Chillies! I got sent 5 different flavours (Truffle, Tom Yum, Extremely Spicy, Mild, and Larb) to try and I must say they aren’t for the faint hearted! Even Mild left me sweating already, and my spice tolerance is usually quite high 😅. My favourite flavour has to be Tom Yum – the tangy and fragrant herbs added to the crispy fried chilli and garlic elevate the aroma and taste of this Crispy Chilli to another level! Special mention goes to the Truffle flavour as well for its unique taste and appetising aroma. You can visit their website at to find out more about their products.

Check out the delectable spread of food that we ordered for lunch yesterday from Uncle Leaw Thai Food, a home based business selling Thai seafood dishes! Here’s what we had:

~Steamed Crab w/ Milk
~Seabass Fish w/ Lime Sauce
~Scrambled Eggs Crab Meat w/ Rice

Overall, we felt the standard and quality of their food were really impressive! In fact, my mum was really surprised when I told her they were home based, as she felt the food was restaurant quality, which we all agreed! My favourite dish was the Steamed Crab with Milk; the meat was sweet and succulent, and if you’re a fan of crab roe, you’ll definitely love their crabs! The other seafood dishes like Seabass Fish w/ Lime Sauce (the sauce was so appetising!) and Cockles were all really fresh, while the Scrambled Eggs Crab Meat w/ Rice was tasty as well! Oh ya, I also wanna highlight how solid their chilli sauce was too - so spicy and addictive that it elevated the overall taste of the dishes when dipped together!

Located in a coffeeshop along Upper Boon Keng Road (just a few minutes walk from Kallang Mrt) is Pratunam 水門, a food stall that serves a range of Thai street food like Pig’s Trotters Rice, Thai Style Kway Chap and more!

We tried a few of their dishes and my favourite was the Pig’s Trotters Rice! The pig’s trotters was braised really well, and the meat was tender and full of collagen too! The portion was also really generous, which made this a really value for money dish!


Besides their steel pot vermicelli, I’d highly recommend ordering the Moo Ping! Each piece of grilled pork is so damn juicy and flavourful that 1 is not enough! Very addictive!

I still remember how blown away I was when I had my first taste of Alvin’s (the owner) vermicelli; the aromatic, peppery and flavourful taste was so memorable that I constantly had cravings for it (even now as I’m typing this 😂🤭)! Each pot of vermicelli comes with a variety of fresh and succulent seafood options like prawns, crab, scallops, clams and even Boston lobster! My favourite will have to be the one with Tiger Prawns as featured here; so huge and fresh! Remember to pair it with their homemade chilli too, so so good!

All I can say is Shrimp Prawn Seafood is a must visit if you’re a seafood lover or a lover of food in general, if not you’re really missing out!They are truly a deserving winner of the Singapore Food Masters 2020 (Central Zone) Award!

This was so damn good! It came with a generous serving of ingredients like noodles, big prawns, clams, sausages, sotong ball, egg tofu, vegetables all soaking in a super robust, tangy and addictive tom yum broth! You can even customise the level of spiciness as well! This dish would be perfect to have during rainy weather days!


The Mookata platter came with a generous portion of fresh ingredients like marinated chicken, marinated pork, fish, prawns, egg, assorted vegetables and more; while the soup base was light, sweet and flavourful! The ingredients went really well with their homemade Thai chilli sauce too!

Met up with my foodie friends for dinner recently at Leng Saap, a Thai eatery located at Golden Mile Tower (walking distance from Nicoll Highway Mrt) famous for their spicy pork spine soup!

The pork spine soups are available in 4 different sizes: M - S$19.26, L - S$26.75, XL - S$42.80 and XXL - S$58.85 with different levels of spiciness to choose from - MILD, SPICY, HOT and HELL. We ordered the XXL SPICY spicy pork spine soup for sharing, and were immediately wowed by the presentation of the dish where heaps of pork spine were stacked like firewood in a campfire.

Taste wise, the pork spine (boiled for several hours) was fork tender while the broth was tangy and really appetising! Yummy!

I will definitely be back again with my friends to try some of their other dishes such as Green Curry, Papaya Salad, Deep Fried Fish Pasty and more!

Thailily Novena (no relation to the Thailily at Toa Payoh) is located at Goldhill Shopping Centre, and serves really delicious and affordable Thai dishes. Their chefs are all from Thailand, so you can expect authenticity in the dishes as well!

My favourite dish is the Fried Garlic Chilli Squid! Think deep-fried chewy squid rings covered in aromatic crispy fried garlic, so damn addictive! I can see why this is one of their most popular dish in the menu.

This place is also a merchant on Burpple Beyond (1-for-1 mains), so you can save even more when you dine here.
