Mama Noodle Basil Chicken ($4.50) SAP Thai is one of the best "hidden gems" for Thai food in Singapore; you probably wouldn't know about it if you don't frequent the CBD. The noodles in this dish is super springy while still absorbing the wok-stirred goodness of basil, minced chicken, chilli, fish sauce and dark sauce. The sunny side up is also crisp at the edges with the yolk still runny. Ask for "less spicy" so that you can enjoy your meal with their homemade sambal cincalok - one of the best you'd have tasted. Thumbs up, hands down, 10/10 amazing Thai food, at only $4.50! Opens Mon-Fri 10am to 9pm

Value For Money Thai Food Folks in the CBD! Sap Thai (Mon-Fri, 1000-2100 hours) at Amoy Food Centre is a great option if we are craving for something hot and spicy as it serves hearty yet so affordable Thai grub. Want to place an order for your office lunch party? You can do so by dialing 9722 1235 before 1130. We had the Thai Basil Mama Noodles ($4.50), Tom Yum Fried Rice ($4.50), Green Curry Chicken ($4.50) and Sliced Fish Tom Yum Soup ($5) — All these for just under $20!! The mama noodles with Thai basil chicken was my favorite. Yes, it might be instant noodles but don't we just secretly love it? I like that it comes with a sunny side up and chilli padi that spices things up! The green curry was extremely creamy and fragrant served with a generous amount of chicken. The stall claims that no MSG are used in their food but it was on the salty side for me. Even so, it was so yummy and I'm already thinking of a return visit!

Thai Beef Soup + Noodles Ordered Thai beef soup ($4.00) with additional noodle ($0.50)。 surprised to find this here as you don't really see Thai beef soup much in sg. Soup was rich, beef was really tender and noodle was chewy and nicely cooked. They were really generous with both noodles and meat for the price! Definitely coming back to try new dishes (their basil chicken rice looks AMAZEEEEE)

pulut tekan and sugee cake @ sunset railway cafe tea break because food like these. is like atasfied kopitiam tea break but you don't mind the extra bucks at all. pulut tekan ($4), a peranakan glutinous rice cake here is paired with their home made artisan kaya here - it was light, very soothing, and that mellowed sweetness that you forget you are downing glutinous rice shot one after another. sugee cake ($4.80) is another their signature - coarser almonds here lends a hearty bite to this rich cake with a lemon drizzle that complements it so well. best to down one bite with a sip of your favourite heartland kopi each time!

Pulut Tekan + Kaya Posted this once, and that was the very first time I have walked into Sunset Railway Cafe. When the craving for Kueh kicks in and you need a spot near school to have a quick coffee break that has local Kopi and WiFi — Sunset Railway Cafe is just the spot I would end up hitting. Essentially like a Kueh Salat, but you get to smear the eggy blob of Kaya (which acts like a Pandan mousse that is on a Kueh Salat) atop the beautiful diamonds of Glutinous Rice speckled with blue hues of the Butterfly Pea all by yourself. Each portion of glutinous rice comes tacky with a good bite; certainly a good item to pair alongside a cup of Kopi while working on the laptop over their WiFi.

Nasi Lemak ($7.50 with drink) Quite surprised by how this went! Sure, the long grain rice isn't quite as flavourful as Selera Rasa but I must say I am impressed with the lightness and fluffiness of the rice without being too heavy in flavour – makes it actually very easy to finish. The sambal was sweet without trying to set fire to the tongue, yet carries a easy amount of spiciness to handle. Most stuff on the plate are pre-prepared before serving, hence could be rather lukewarm, but I liked the Rendang Chicken most; succulent and tender with a flavours of the spices prominent for it wasn't overwhelmingly spicy. Quite a good place to hit for lunch and to work on some assignments over their free WiFi during that odd four-hour break in between lectures.

Kaisen Bijin Nabe🍲($68) If this looks familiar, then you've probably tried the uhhhhmazing chicken version from Tsukada Nojo (which is a place I can keep going to). 😋Yonpachi specializes in seafood, so you can imagine how excited I was when I heard they're doing a seafood version of the chicken collagen hotpot! So the soup here uses the chicken collagen infused with their seafood broth, giving it a saltier, briny taste. It's also not as thick and hearty as before, which led me to the conclusion that I preferred the pure chicken version. (Also note that there's no refills here at all, with each top-up carrying a $5 price tag) Ingredients wise, we weren't impressed. The clams dropped out of their shells, dooming many to a sad fate of overcooking. The crab was quite hollow and the prawn balls tough. I wanted to love this but unfortunately, I'll just be heading back to Tsukada Nojo. (The bar bites and small plates here seem really good though, perfect for a night of boozing and sake!) 🍶

Kaisen Bijin Nabe Kaisen Bijin Nabe ($68) If "Bijin Nabe" rings a familiar bell, that's cos @yonpachi_sgp is part of the group which brought us our all-time favourite bijin nabe! Pictured here is a variant of the pure chicken stock collagen. The chicken stock is boiled for up to 8 hours till the bones melt and then mixed with their rich seafood soup to get this super yums broth. Being a soup addict, the entire hotpot was devoid of soup when we were done. That's how delicious it was! Do note though that the ingredients here are more seafood based and was not as filling as its chicken counterpart at Tsukada Nojo. Also, there was no complimentary refill for the soup.

Crab Butter Bread 🦀($8.80) Oh my tian. 🤤Oh my arteries. 😂This seemingly simple combo of the best part of a crab mixed with mayo on crisp bread took me on a seaside joyride! It was like mentaiko mayo on steroids and almost every table there had a plate of these suckers. If I'm coming back, it'll be for the small plates and various dishes but not the bijin nabe that pales to their chicken version. 👆

Drunkard Noodle Pork ($7.90) from Kra Pow - every now and then when I think about having Thai food, my mind automatically flash to a plate of these flat kway tiao stir fried with basil pork. Looks ordinary, but it taste a-may-zinggggg. Super super fragrant (especially when they state no msg is added) though just abit on the oilier side, but that also made it much more tastier. Already can't wait for the next chance to order the whole plate for myself.

Squid Tentacle Fritters These were pretty fantastic — honestly quite stoked how similar these tasted to Old Chang Kee's Fried Octopus OnStick in flavour but delightfully thin and crisp batter which makes them even more addictive to have. The chili lime aioli gave just a manageable and light kick in terms of spiciness, but also a tinge of sweetness that made these already delicious morsels of squid tentacles even more appetising!

Drunkard Noodles Pork Are you a fan of Thai Basil Minced Pork Rice but you have always preferred noodles to rice? This is absolutely what I had been dreaming and craving for — Thai Basil Minced Pork with thick rice noodles; absolutely delicious where it comes with that signature savouriness of Thai Basil Minced Pork dishes laced with all the rice noodles and loads of chili padi for a piquant spiciness that's pretty shiok despite being more on the moderate scale. The long beans helps add a little crunchiness to the whole dish which makes it pretty wholesome overall.

Dry Suki I was forewarned by the wait staff that it will be very spicy, and he strongly recommend less Chili. And boy did I heed his advice. Even my Mother was love spicy, can feel the kick. This quick stir-fry is moist, and with chunks of eggs, squid and prawns. Decent portion, and decently tasted. Great after a round of shopping, clean and efficient. But do note the small seating area. So avoid lunch crowd if possible.

Hidden Gem ✨ A true westie's pain is trying to find a good, nice place to eat that does not close before dinner. Found out about this place while mindlessly scrolling through Burpple and finally had a chance to try it with the fambam! (clockwise from top) It'll be a waste if you come here and give a miss on their beef! The ribeye steak ($25) tho pricy was super juicy & succulent! Carbonara ($10) was a no brainer. Affordable priced, looked great, tasted FANTASTIC. Lastly, the Chicken Chop ($10) was soooo well done. Unknowingly gobbled it down so quickly because of how easy it was to peel the meat from the bone & the mash... omg, heavenly. Ended up trying the white snapper with quinoa ($15) too, and would definitely recommend it as well!! Overall, just try everything HAHAHAHA can't wait to be back!

Western in the West. . | It was like a more atas kopitiam western. Greeted by its large semi open kitchen and pretty long Q at a Wednesday night. . | Good spaghetti with meat sauce but I am not a fan with carrot in my meat sauce. It felted like a kid meal. . | Juicy and well seasoned patty. Only downfall would be their soggy fries. . | Lastly their basic trinity - beef, Pork sausage and chicken cutlet. Light and smooth mashed potato which I loved and meaty gravy. This was a dish which I would order again!!! . | Good place to chill and have an above average western dinner. . | The Carving Board. . | 🏠: Blk 252Jurong east # 01-107, singapore 600252

Salmon Pesto Pasta Finally dragged myself to Yuhua market to try the western food that many have raved about. Was a tiny bit disappointed when the grilled pork chop I wanted to try sold out. So I opted for this pasta. It was not bad! The pesto here is not the creamy sort, and it is quite a potent pesto with strong herby grassy flavours. I love it but if you don't like grassy aromatics like parsley/coriander, you might want to give this a miss. Salmon was wonderful - crisp skin and soft flesh. The portion seemed small at first but it was actually quite a lot.
