A popular Thai Eatery selling authentic Thai favourites located right smack in the heart of Bugis Street area. Though it’s nothing quite like the Phad Thai I’ve tasted at the street food stalls at Bangkok, it is good enough to satisfy your cravings for some hot and spicy food.
Ah Loy Thai
100 Beach Road
#01-39/40 Shaw Tower
Tel: +65 9165 1543
Beverages costs between $2.00 to $2.50.
A drink plus a medium-portion dish probably cost you about $10. Affordable or highly priced?
Thai Glass Noodle, $7.50
This is my favourite out of the 3 dishes we ordered. Too bad, they ran out of green curry chicken! Business here is that good on a Friday night.
Phad Thai, $7
Ah Loy Thai’s Phad Thai has a substantial amount of fresh juicy shrimps and other ingredients such as eggs, sprouts and lemongrass. Less noodles but more of fresh ingredients that plumps up the dish.
Pineapple Rice, $7
This isn’t your typical Thai pineapple rice. Even my friend quipped, ” Why isn’t the rice yellow?” Though probably they didn’t add any colouring to the rice, you could taste the pineapple chunks covered with grains of fragrant Thai long grain rice. It almost tasted like Chinese-style stirred fried rice because of its soy sauce fragrance in the rice. Nevertheless, it tasted good as far as I could remember.
