Soi Thai Kitchen

It has been a long time since my last visit and still, they are one of my best choices of Thai Food in the Western part of Singapore. With their $6 Set Lunch promotion Monday to Sunday, 11am to 5pm it makes it so affordable and tempting for me to come here frequently. Their lunch set menu is limited with one main dish listed on the menu with a choice of drinks at $6.

Well fried with strong Wok Hei, these Drunken Noodles are firey thus beware if you do not intend to take spicy dishes. Drunken noodles ingredients includes shredded squid and kiffir Lime Leaves elevating the taste.

Phad Thai is always on a sweeter side coupled with peanuts and chilli flakes by the side. The Phad Thai is deliciously coated in its tangy and sweet sauce with a generous amount of eggs. Other ingredients include prawns, chive and beansprouts.

These prawn cakes are ordered additionally on top of the lunch promotion set meals. The texture is similar to what we have from the fish cakes. These cakes were coated with crumbs and accompanied with Thai Sweet and Sour Chilli Sauce.

They were fried to golden perfection.

The texture was soft and springy with a sweet-tasting bite. Coupled with the sweet and sour chilli sauce and it makes this appetiser so welcoming for us.

Lately, Soi Thai has been my frequently visited eatery. Having visited Soi Thai Kitchen in Tampines & Soi Thai Kitchen in Jurong West quite some years back, I'm glad that they are spreading the wings further creating more outlets offering more wallet-friendly authentic Thai Cuisine.

This is our all-time favourite and with the request of less spiciness so that we won't be swallowing down the chilli seeds. We prefer the clear version and customers can have the choice of chicken Tom Yam or Seafood Tom Yam Soup.

Mango Salad is one of the recommendations on the menu. It's appetizing and too we requested for the less spicy version. Shredded mango is tossed with peanuts, fish sauce, coriander, carrot, onions and lime juice. It's quite addictive and makes a great side dish.

Their fishcakes come in a plate of four and are recommended to order especially if you have kids. Its fried and crispy at the exterior, different from the ones that most Thai Restaurants would serve. Fishcake is springy and great to go with their sweet chilli sauce.

If you are looking to order greens from their menu, the Stir Fried Kai Lan is of excellent choice. It is fried together in minced garlic and oyster sauce with slices of carrot.

We simply love the Premium Fried Pork Cheek as its roasted to perfection, crispy outside with crunchy edges and was not too dry. Meat was chewy and best combination if you dip them into the given chilli sauce.

If you love the scent of basil, you may like to order this dish and pair along with rice. This is one of the popular ordered dishes among the diners especially if you are dining in a group and sharing dishes.

Though Stir-Fried Clams with Thai Chilli Sauce is a recommended dish on the menu, we did not find the dish anything out of the ordinary. It's spicy as indicated and the only thing is that the clams were fresh.

Squid rings are recommended as they are meaty and fresh. The lime juice together with the chili gravy had given a zesty sour yet sweet and spicy flavour to the dish.

If you are going for an individual portion, you can try ordering their Thai Fried Kway Tiao. The "Wok-Hei" together with the kiffir Lime had spelt a difference on the dish. Ingredients are simple slices of carrot, chicken, Kailan and egg.

A dish that you either like it or hate. While I enjoy the fragrance of olive oil, I find that the dish tastes great though it might look plain without many ingredients.

The soft sweet savoury pineapple fried rice was spot on. Ingredients lend a good texture with chewy raisins, crunchy cashew nuts and fragrantly prepared together with meat floss.

We had Red Ruby dessert to complete our meal. Glad that dessert tasted alright without having an overpowering coconut milk taste with sago. What's more, I love the crunchiness of the rubies.

The milk tea has subtle tea fragrant, not too strong and has a good milk taste, likewise, for the Ice Thai Green Tea, both level of sweetness is great.

Soi Thai Kitchen is serving authentic Thai Food at affordable pricing without GST charge. Basically, that's the main reason why we are returning there so often! I guess its queue also tells us that it's well-liked by many.
