Local Thai delights are a dime a dozen in Bangkok and there is always something to eat at every turn. While we love our pad thai and tom yum soup, we thought that it would be interesting to try something that belonged to a completely different era for a change.
Tucked away along a street at Pratunam is Gong Tong, a charming and quirky cafe that dishes out themed homemade dishes that revolve around different historical periods of Thailand.
Singapore is home to a multitude of international cuisines and one we always find ourselves craving for from time to time is Thai cuisine.
Thai food is unmistakable; it is vibrant, dynamic and full-flavoured from the use of rich spices to portray a combination of spicy, sour, sweet and salty notes. In Singapore, we are blessed to have a huge number of Thai dining establishments that cater to any kind of budget you have—whether you are looking for no-frills eateries or classy restaurants.

The Original Boat Noodle at Changi City Point is a new restaurant everyone needs to know about.
As with most Thai dishes, their food features a punchy marriage of herbs, spices and aromatics, as well as the iconic 4 tastes—sweet, salty, spicy and sour—resulting in a plethora of dishes encompassing complex flavours reminiscent of the hearty street foods of Bangkok.
Starting out humbly along the back alleys of Bangkok, the restaurant, as well as its menu, has grown exponentially since its first outlet opened in Malaysia in 2014 and with it, fuelled many people’s interest toward the dish as well as Thai street fare in general.
Their boat noodle selection is limited to two classic flavours but, make no mistake that by the end of your meal, you’ll probably be shocked by the number of bowls you have towering over your table.
