Imagine strolling down the creaky wooden platform along Amphawa Floating Market in Bangkok, taking in the sights of the riverfront and wafting smells of local food being hawked on the little stalls and floating boats. If you’re not at one of these Thai floating markets now but wish you could somehow be transported there – head over to Tha Chang Noodle Bar at Golden Mile Complex in Singapore where you’ll find authentic Thai boat noodles.
A traditional food sold off boats at floating markets in Thailand since 1942 (which is why its been aptly named “boat noodles”), the boat noodles here are simple to order and available with pork or beef (from S$7.90). First, choose your meat, then choose the type of noodle you prefer – rice noodles, egg noodles, Thai noodles or vermicelli – then decide if you want it spicy or not, and your order is done.
The broth is fragrant and satisfying and will hit the spot if you’re craving authentic Thai flavours. You can also opt for the beef or pork hot pot boat noodle set (from S$22.90) if you’re looking for an extra special boat noodle experience. Otherwise, if you’re not so much in the mood for boat noodles, Tha Chang Noodle Bar also offers a myriad of familiar and fusion Thai food.
Think omelette crab bomb (fried crab omelette, S$22.90), dry tom yum noodle with onsen egg (S$12.90), grilled pork and beef balls (S$11.90), moo ping (meat skewers, S$6), salted lava egg crab meat fried rice (S$17.90), and more.
They also offer Thai seafood dishes such as boiled cockles with a special seafood sauce (S$15.90), yum blue crab (S$21.90), yum prawns (raw or cooked, S$23.90) and a variety of other seafood dishes to check out.
So if you haven’t made it back to the land of a thousand smiles just yet, here’s where you can visit for a taste of some good old Thai food!
