Whether it’s green chicken curry you are craving, or pad thai, tom yum or green mango salad, Nana Thai at Golden Mile Complex has it all. And the best part? The food is authentic and very affordable. Something tells me that I will be a regular at this humble Thai eatery.
The menu is large. Besides the usual tom yum ($10), pineapple rice ($7), stir-fried glass noodle ($5), they also have Thai hotpot ($30), and a selection of grilled items done in Thai style.
The mango salad ($5) – which arrived shortly after we took a few sips of the excellent Thai milk tea – turned out to be more than we bargained for; it looked like an ordinary mango salad, but it was fiery hot. Definitely not everyone, but those who enjoy the heat, will love it.
Another dish that we enjoyed was the stir fried basil minced pork ($10). Again, it was much spicier than it looked, but it didn’t stopped us from wiping the plate clean.
The pad thai ($5) – one of my all time favourite Thai dishes – is also something that you must order. It was moist and well-fried, and I was swooning with every bit; it was that good.
Then we had Thai green curry chicken ($10). It was decent but nothing to shout about. Nana Thai’s tom yum ($10), on the other hand, was fantastic. It was very flavourful and well-balanced; it hit all the right notes for spicy, sweet and sour. The fact that I finished the whole pot, tells you a lot about the soup.
The food at Nana Thai Restaurant at Golden Mile Complex is simple, but earnest and delicious. If you have not ventured to “little Bangkok” in Singapore, it is time to do so.
