Thailand is known to Singaporeans as a place for cheap and good food. While we cannot visit The Land of Smiles, we can still visit good inexpensive Thai eateries in Singapore. Muen Wang Thai Kitchen in Tiong Bahru is one of those places where we can get cheap yet delicious Thai food.
Muen Wang Thai Kitchen in Tiong Bahru
Located in Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre, Muen Wang Thai Kitchen is almost never mentioned in the many lists of “must try stalls” in the popular food centre. However, if you want cheap and good Thai dishes, Muen Wang Thai Kitchen has a wide range of Thai staples that will satisfy your taste buds without bursting your budget.
The Thai hawker stall is located right next to the famous Jian Bo Shui Kueh stall. Photos of the dishes it offers are prominently displayed at the stall. One dish meals like Pineapple Rice and Pad Thai start from $5. There are also set meals priced from $8.50.
Dinner at Muen Wang Thai Kitchen
We had dinner at Muen Wang Thai Kitchen in Tiong Bahru Market and Food Centre recently. We ordered a Sweet & Sour Pork Set Meal ($8.50) and the Thai Green Curry ($6) with Rice.
The Sweet & Sour Pork Set Meal was rather nicely plated, with a bowl of soup served separately. The portion size was quite generous. The salad and tom yum soup had authentic Thai flavours. The pork was tender and well coated with the delectable Thai sweet and sour sauce, made with onion, red peppers, tamarind and other ingredients.
The bowl of Green Curry Chicken was a bit larger than we had expected. Besides chucks of chicken, there were lots of vegetables in the bowl. The green curry was aromatic and flavourful, with natural sweetness derived from the coconut milk. It had sufficient spiciness to give a nice kick without being overpowering. With plain steamed rice, we got a complete meal which included proteins, carbohydrates, lots of vegetables and some superfoods like galangal, basil leaves and green chillies.
Our dinner at Muen Wang Thai Kitchen in Tiong Bahru was enjoyable. We had an inexpensive delectable healthy meal which brought smiles to our faces.
