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

Rice is packed in burger boxes so that it's easier to eat
Pineapple Fried Rice - $1.50 per bowl

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.

Just opposite the Ubi Automobile Mart Only
Paad Thai! The girls were crazy over this!
Tom Yum Soup
Olive Fried Rice – Real preserved olives are minced and fried together.
BBQ Squid. All time favourite. A must try! Cooked perfectly till tender and tasty. Must eat with chilli.
Deep Fried Seabass with Green Mango Salad (Som Tam) topping
Thai Fishcake. Very nice texture. Special sauce made by the cook.
All these food goes best with Singha Beer!

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!
