Sukhothai Kitchen @ Bugis

We have passed by Sukhothai Kitchen @ Bugis in an unassuming coffee shop at the back of Bugis Street a few times and it was usually crowded so we decided to give it to try. Compared to Nana Thai at Far Fast Plaza, I find Sukhothai much more authentic and value for money. The Fried Minced Pork with Basil Leaf ($8), dished to me by an authentic Thai lady, was spicy at the right levels, with strong basil kick with every bite. Loved it! The Tom Yum Soup Seafood ($5) is a big portion, spicy and sour to the right extent. Flavour wise, this tom yum is very close to the tom yums in Bangkok. We also had the Minced Prawn Omelette ($8), which we kind of gobbled up without shooting. Very affordable and tasty meal at the end of a work day. We will be back next time we have a Thai food craving! — Sukhothai Kitchen @ Bugis Address: 52 Queen Street, Singapore 188539 Opening Hours: Everyday, 11:30 am – 10:30 pm Phone: 8141 …

Nana Thai Restaurant @ Far East Plaza

After an awesome trekking trip to Nepal, we went to Far East Plaza to get my beauty fix and decided to try Nana Thai Restaurant, which is different from the one at Golden Mile. The Curry Fish Head ($28) is one of their signature dishes. It’s only one side of the fish head, but it has lots of ingredients like daopok and crispy dried bean curd skin. While the fish was very fresh, but the sauce was too coconuty for me. Still prefer the curry fish at Novena Peranakan Cuisine. Since the restaurant is Thai, also tried the Tom Yum Soup with Chicken ($10). Didn’t taste very authentic to me but spicy and sour enough. This store is more like local Singaporean tze char than Thai store. The Sambal Kangkong ($8) was very nice with mini prawn shrimps. My favorite dish! Claypot Beef Rice ($7.50) was good value and tasty, with soft and tender beef. Second favourite dish, though it tasted very Chinese and not Thai. A little pricey for tze char, but good spicy …

You Yen Seafood Restaurant

This was another recommendation by BK Asiacity, and we had You Yen @ Hua Hin for lunch before driving back to Bangkok to catch our flight home. You Yen was much less premium priced than Let’s Sea, even though it offers the same brilliant sea view. You Yen is a tiffany-blue colonial mansion, with its seating area expanded into the massive backyard. You Yen is a popular restaurant serving Thai cuisine, with many tables filled when we reached at an offpeak timing of 2pm. My favorite dish was the Deep-fried Seabass with Spicy Lemongrass Salad (470 baht). The fresh fish was fried till very crispy, and went very well with the spicy lemon sauce. Highly recommended.
