Boat Noodle Express – Rivervale Drive, Singapore


I was told of this place by a friend who apparently visits this stall so frequently that she is part timing there now. To be honest, if she didn’t tell me, I wouldn’t have known such a hidden gem also. So I decided I should visit this place with a fellow foodie and you can find the pictures with comments below.

The stall is only about a month old, a invested interest of lady boss, Desiree Goh, who is 38 this year. She started this little stall for the basic fundamentals; Love for food and cooking. Sounds familiar ya? 😉

Thai Milk Tea or Cha Yen $2.50.

Pork Special Noodle Soup $4.80 – Their signature. Pork broth very similar to the ones in Thailand except the salt level is not so high here. Well tuned for Singaporeans. Love the glass noodles!

Beef Tendon Noodle Soup $6.00 – I’m proud to say I was the first to try this and the beef was so tender!!! Broth is light and beefy. Yummy.

Thai Fish Cake $3.50 – Very yummy.

Loads of backlogs to catch up on as work has been really tiring. Was at Spicy Thai a few weeks back and was really surprise with the food quality at a neighbourhood area. I have revisited since and food quality was still there. Check out the pics below.

Diandin Leluk (Golden Mile Complex) – Beach Road, Singapore


Diandin Leluk has been around for the longest time since 1985. This is probably the first Thai restaurant in Singapore, even way earlier than those branded and posh ones. Located at the heart of Singapore’s Little Thailand, Diandin Leluk has definitely found its place to continue provide awesome Thai food to all of us! I was there at Golden Mile Complex to book coach tickets for my Genting trip with my mum and decided to have our lunch there ‘cos it’s been a long time I had my meals there. There are many Thai food eateries but Diandin Leluk is the one with the biggest and most prime establishments. Check out the yummy pics below!

Taste Of Thailand – Yishun, Singapore


Was looking around for some Thai food and heard there’s this outlet that is pretty good at Sembawang Shopping Centre. So I went there with my god brother just to realise that it has moved LONG AGO. Obviously, I haven’t been around these parts for the longest time! Haha… So we made our way there using Google Maps and finally found it located inside some industrial coffeeshop. So after parking the car, we sat down and checked out the food!

Lai Thai Kitchen – Serangoon, Singapore


Next on my blog post is this little place I discovered with my mummy one of the days when we were out for lunch. Actually I wanted to eat the braised duck rice just beside this place but it has already closed down. Nevertheless, Lai Thai looked pretty good with simple but neat decor, located below a HDB block.

As our lunch time was quite early and on a weekday afternoon, there weren’t many patrons at the eatery. So we were seated down by a Thai staff, and found out that they have lunch time specials for only $9.90! So we ordered and had a taste of their food.

Northern Thai Food


Was in training today at Foo Chow Building and finished around lunch time. So I decided to pack my lunch back to office as I needed to work on my emails.

Saw Anne packing her lunch as well at this Northern Thai stall located at the coffeeshop round the bend of Kitchener Road and Tyrwitt Road. Basically, the whole coffee shop patrons are eating their food. So I reckon they should be good.

Looking at the menu on the wall, the prices are really cheap. Egg omelette $3.00, Pineapple Rice per bowl $1.50, Stewed Pork Leg $3.00, etc… in essence, everything is cheap and portioning is meant for personal consumption.

So I ordered Tom Yum Soup with fried fish slices and a portion of white rice and pineapple rice. Here are the pics:

The soup is a little milky and separated from the fish so that the fish will not get too soggy

Rating: 5/5

Taste: The Tom Yum Soup is extremely good. Probably the best I had so far in Singapore. Very nice and thick soup and you can feel a lot of spices were used to make it so good. The fish slices are all well seasoned before deep frying, hence no smell. Pineapple rice is lovely.

Portion: A lot of fish in the soup and the rice portioning are ok for the price.

Price: $4.00 for Tom Yum Soup (From $3-$5) and $1.50 for Pineapple Rice.

RTE: Definitely… Will try the dishes the next time!

Thai Food Restaurant (301 Ubi Ave 1 #01-273) (Moved – See new address)


Ok this is not my first time eating here. Many times already. Reason is that it’s really good and affordable. So I’ve arranged to meet up with 2 girl-friends to introduce how good the food is.

The shop owners are an old couple who hired a Thai cook from Bangkok (His name is Ah Thep or Ah Boy). Very nice and friendly people and somehow they are very contented with their lives until I decided to feature their food. I hope they have better business as they are really old already.

Rating: 4.5/5 (No aircon and got funny smell coming from the Thai provision shop next door.)

Taste: Very nice like I said. A change from the expensive Thai restaurants we use to know. Other must tries are Pandan Chicken, Fried Chicken Wings, Tanghoon Salad, Pineapple Rice, etc. Oh for the Thais, you might like to know they have glutinous rice (Khao Niao) as well to go with your dishes instead of white rice.

Portion: Very good.

Price: All the above for only $57.00. (Did not show us consuming 4 can drinks and 1 hot tea)

RTE: Always! My mum just love eating here!
