There’s always the topic of where’s the best Thai food in Singapore, and no matter which restaurant you went to, the best recommendation to get authentic Thai food will always be at Golden Mile Complex.
If you don’t know Singapore well, Golden Mile Complex and Beach Road is called the “Little Thailand”, which you’ll find lots of Thai shops there, and a favourite hangout for Thai people to gather during the weekends.
Of course, you go to Golden Mile for their money changers, and also their travel agencies.
Last weekend, we went over to have our dinner after our close friend opened a shop at Golden Mile Tower. And we selected Nana Thai at the very end of the building as we weren’t able to fill our stomachs with Mookata.
The special Thai Iced Milk Tea, which is a must order, not sure why it tastes different from our Nanyang style tea, but it’s really quite special… But it’s a little tad too sweet though, so if you can’t take super sweet drinks, you probably wanna wait for the ice to melt further. However, the fragrance of the tea could be more thick as we had better one at MooJa Mookata.
Another typical must order dish will always be this – Basil Fried Chicken/Pork, which we ordered the Pork version. Not sure if it’s standard dropped or anything, but this dish was quite plain ordinary to me, the basil smell can be stronger, as you can see from the photo, they didn’t place that much basil leaves. And it tasted a little powdery?
Tom Yum Gong! Which means Tom Yum Seafood, is another must try here. They place this in a stove with solid fuel with a sort of claypot, so it’s ensured to be steaming hot no matter how long you place it there. This soup is great, sour and spicy, though spicy loves will definitely prefer it to be spicier. But it was still OK to me. The soup is also filled with ingredients, Prawn, Crabstick, Squid, Fish Ball, Mushrooms, etc… So it’s definitely worth the money, and it’s a super great dish to go with the rice. I can really have just rice and soup.
The Thai style fried egg was really good, and a little different from our usual Chinese styled egg. It’s more fluffy and nicely seasoned, not too salty which some may overly add the salt/soya sauce in the egg.
Another shot of the ingredients (prawn + fish ball) in the Tom Yum soup.
I would say Nana Thai’s food is good, but there could be even better Thai food around the complex since we saw some restaurants to be fully seated, whereas this restaurant was a little less crowded. But if you’re looking for a simple fare of Thai food, you can still come here and it would still win any average Thai restaurant outside Golden Mile Complex.
