Recently, a new Thai restaurant has pop up in Tampines. “Soi Thai Kitchen” offers Thai street food at affordable prices. Long queues can be expected over meal times.
Someone recommended their Claypot Prawn noodle ($14) to us. It is actually tang-hoon (vermicelli). We did not like this dish, maybe it is the vegetable (some herbal smell) or maybe we felt the tang-hoon is too stiff.
We ordered pineapple rice ($10) but it came too late, after we have almost finish our side dishes. We did not find the pineapple rice fantastic. On hindsight, we should have ordered plain rice instead to go with our Tom Yam.
Overall, the food is ok but maybe overrated. We love their Tom Yam and Prawn cake, but we thought the price is overpriced for a neighbourhood eatery. Do expect to queue up to 20 or 30 minutes for a table.
Soi Thai is located at : 824 Tampines Street 81 s(520824)
