refreshing change from the usual hawker fare
Muay Thai Food is a hawker store situated in Mega Food Court along Balestier Road. Since it’s nearby my office and we were both craving Thai food, I decided to have lunch there with my colleague.
I ordered a Thai Green Curry ($6), which came with a bowl of white rice, while my colleague chose their Pad Thai ($6). The curry didn’t taste authentic, but was still palatable. There were too many basil leaves which overpowered the curry, but it was sufficiently sweet. My colleague really enjoyed her Pad Thai - the rice noodles were springy and well-seasoned, just that it was a little too greasy. Both meals were value-for-money, and the portions were quite generous. The hawkers were very friendly, but since the food was made to order and there were a lot of customers we had to wait for quite a bit.
Good Thai food is pretty hard to find, and for a hawker store Muay Thai Food serves up some pretty delicious and affordable Thai fare. It’s one of my go-to lunch spots now, and if you’re ever in the Balestier area it’s worth a try.
Well-portioned authentic Thai food.
Along Balestier Road there are so many good food stalls that it is easy to pass over Mega Foodcourt, which is where Muay Thai Food is located. However, it offers affordably-priced meals which average $5 in return for a full plate of Thai food. Aroy mak mak!
From the front of the stall you can see a Thai chef busily cooking up all the orders behind, and the bustling activity with 2 ladies at the front speaking rapidly to one another in Thai. On my first visit there, I ordered the Fried Glass Noodles ($5) as I fell in love with the dish in Bangkok. Thankfully, Muay Thai’s did not disappoint. While slightly oily, the glass noodle was cooked to just the right texture and the seafood flavour penetrated the whole dish. The green curry ($6) was great too!
One thing to note is that you may have to wait a little while for the food as from what I observed, there was only 1 chef jaga-ing every single order. For affordably priced Thai food that is as close to Thailand’s as possible, this place should do the trick.
