Golden Mile Complex or otherwise known fondly as “Little Thailand” to the locals and Thais living in Singapore is a mall that is always bustling with activity throughout the day.
While most people would know the place for its pubs and drinking places, there are also many humble eateries and hidden restaurants inside that cater for the lunch crowd during midday too.
Whether you are craving for traditional Pad Thai, creamy Green Curry or simply want to fill your hungry stomach with aromatic beef boat noodles, you will surely be able to find them all at Golden Mile Complex.
Here is our Golden Mile Complex Food Guide, featuring 11 Thai eateries that you must dine at.
Founded by local celebrities Chew Chor Meng and Zhou Chongqing in partnership with cousins Esmond and Ronnie, 888 Mookata—at the coffee shop in Blk 212 Hougang Street 21—is a new 2-week old Mookata restaurant and the latest addition to the Mookata scene in Singapore.
To top it off, service at this restaurant is exemplary which contributes to an enhanced dining experience.
Thai food is versatile, a myriad of flavours, and generally a whole lot of fun for chefs. And Rochor Thai’s Chef Owner Joel Ong—who lived a year in Thailand to learn about the Central Thai cuisine—was determined to bring the best of Thai dishes to Singapore.
While most Thai eateries and restaurants in Singapore serve more North-Eastern Thai fare, Rochor Thai specialises in Central Thai Cuisine—which is a lot more balanced, less salty and no less delicious—and it does not use any MSG at all.
Rochor Thai prides itself in its meticulous preparation and the use of fresh ingredients to ensure the authenticity of its food, with flavours found nowhere else in Singapore.
Making his mark in 2012 at Rochor Centre, Rochor Thai’s inception saw overwhelming success and has brought them to where they are today. Today, they are located at Novena Regency, with a more modern and swanky look. They have rocketed to the top of our list and is now among our favourite Thai restaurants.
