Thai food in JB!

With the MYR dropping to more than 3 for 1 SGD, the number of Singaporeans heading to JB over the weekends and even weekday evenings are by the masses. My group of friends and I are, unfortunately, or rather, fortunately one of the many thousands flocking to JB for a quick chill out whenever time permits.

After a few months of meaning to dine at Amphawa boat noodle, I finally managed to try for the very first 3 weeks back. And I have had it thrice since. Yes, i’m gonna spam some pictures so you and drool over them while planning your next thai fix. Located, near Sutera Mall, this rather unassuming stall smacked in the middle of many other eateries in the area is really good for some authentic Thai cuisine.

There are different flavours to choose from :

Amphawa Chicken Boat Noodle
Rangsit Chicken Boat Noodle
Amphawa Beef Boat Noodle
Rangsit Beef Boat Noodle
Tom Yam Prawn Boat Noodle
(RM1.90 per bowl)
Amphawa is a creamy soup broth, spicy and sour // Rangsit is clear herbs soup broth

Dishes you have to try: Tom Yam Prawn Boat Noodle, Pandan Chicken, Mango Salad. Wash it down with some good ol’ Thai Ice Milk Tea and then (if you are lucky) you can finish off your meal with some mango sticky rice. Out of my 3 visits, I only managed to have mango sticky rice once as it ran out on the other occasions.

Jane Thai, Orchard Towers

Tucked away on the 4th floor of Orchard Towers, unless you’re a foodie like me, you’re probably never gonna chance on this awesome Thai eatery. Don’t be fooled by the standard of this place given it’s location and the surrounding (sleazy) pubs/karaoke lounges.

First must have for every Thai meal, Tom Yam (Clear) Soup.

For Tom Yam Soup (SGD 10), you’ve an option to choose either chicken/seafood/prawns. We decided to go for prawns and were extremely satisfied. The soup was definitely spicy with enough prawns and mushrooms. Portion was more than generous for 2. The soup is served with a piping hot warmer which is another plus. Highly recommended for tom yam soup fans!

Pandan Chicken (SGD 10) was well prepared with the pandan leaves adding flavour to the tender chicken pieces. The sweet Thai chilli with the chicken is just a perfect combination!

Long beans with garlic (SGD 6) was prepared with oyster sauce base. We requested it to be prepared spicier (i.e. with sambal) which wasn’t too bad.

Phad Thai (SGD 5) is prepared with flat rice noodle and nicely stir fried with eggs, prawns, bean sprouts. For those of you who doesn’t like your noodles moist, you might wanna opt for another type of noodles.

For drinks, their Thai Lime Juice (SGD 2) tastes pretty authentic. Must try!

Dinner costed SGD 35 for 2 pax.

With such awesome food, Jane Thai is open till almost 3am everyday. Plus, there’s no GST or service charge. So what more are you waiting for! Please head down to Jane Thai to satisfy your  spicy taste buds sometime soon. I’m definitely going back there again!

Aroy Dee Thai Cafe, Sunshine Plaza

Being a fan of Thai food, my usual hang outs to satisfy my taste buds with would be Thai Accent (Vivocity) or Ah Loy Thai (Shaw Towers, Bugis). Yesterday, I decided to check out Aroy Dee located at Bencoolen Street.

It was decently crowded on a Tuesday during lunch hour and tables were being filled up fast. It seems to be a decently popular eatery that serves pretty good Thai food at affordable prices. The popular dishes as per online reviews as well as from the staff’s recommendations seemed to be Pineapple fried rice and Phad Thai (noodles).

Set lunch options for SGD 5.50 were available. I decided to go for Phad Thai along with Freshly Brewed Lemon Grass. The noodles tasted pretty good and in fact seemed to be better than the one I’ve had at Thai Accent. Chef was generous with the peanut portion served which was another plus (esp for peanut fans).

However, the Tom Yam Seafood Soup (SGD 6) which is a must have during every Thai meal was a disappointment.  The soup was too tangy and lacked flavour in my opinion.

Mango Salad (SGD 6) was well prepared and the portion was generous as well.

My another must have during every Thai meal, apart from Tom Yam Seafood Soup, would be mango sticky rice dessert. Unfortunately I didn’t get to try it as it had ran out for the day.

Lunch for 2 pax at Aroy Dee costed us SGD 29 which I felt was pretty reasonable.

So, the next time you’re in the area, do check out Aroy Dee to satisfy your Thai food cravings.
