Boat Noodle has been increasing in popularity these years contributed to the often travels to Thailand of Singaporean. Many of these Boat Noodle Cafe is around town, if you are in the West, you can now visit Victory Boat Noodle located in Bukit Timah Centre.
When we arrived at the cafe, my friend commented that it looks like Golden Mile. Hence for those who have been there will be able to imagine the look. Anyway, you could have a preview from the photos below as well.
Before we ordered our food, we started with some typical Thai drinks such as Thai Lemongrass ($2.50), Thai Ice Green Tea ($2.50) and Thai Rose Surap ($2.50) similar to our local Bandung drink. The drinks are generally on the sweeter spectrum so it is a good idea to ask for less sweet.
Since their highlight is the Boat Noodle, let start with this item. Boat Noodle Pork or Beef ($5) has choice of noodles; thin noodles or rice noodles (Kway Teow). The soup is extremely tasty and rich with sweet hint hence I find it paired better with the latter noodles. If these aren’t appealing, opt for the Braised Pork Boat Noodle ($7).
Minced Pork Noodle ($6) was with thin Kway Teow, a little spicy and no doubt tasty.
Seafood Tom Yum Noodle ($7) was with clear Tom Yum broth that looks like water tasted so much better than the look. The third Tom Yum noodle option is Grill Pork noodle ($6).
If you prefer rice, opt for the Braised Pork Rice ($7). Toothsome savoury pork went well with rice.
Thai Basil Rice ($5) is other option. However, I find it lacking in basil flavour.
Victory Boat Noodle Cafe offers 2 other Rice; Green Curry ($8) and Tom Yum Seafood ($10) which I am keen to try at my next visit.
Mains with no side is boring. Turn to selection such as tender Grilled Pork Collar ($8) that wasn’t dry after the grill is highly recommended. Alternatively, the caramelised Thai Pork, Moo Ping ($5/3pcs). Other options available are Boiled Sliced Pork ($5) and Salted Egg Fish Skins ($7).
Round up the meal with 2 Thai classics desserts, Mango Sticky Rice ($8) and Red Ruby ($4). Both desserts are decent though not outstanding. For something simpler, go for the Ice Cream ($5).
We find Victory Boat Noodle Cafe is a place great for a meal any time of the week. Especially when one needs to relish on authentic Thai food. If your hood is near them, go for it.
