I was in Holland Village the other day and noticed that the famous Nakhon Kitchen from Hougang Street 21 has now opened a new branch in Holland Village! Nakhon Kitchen is synonymous with Thai food here in Singapore and is possibly rated as the best Thai food found locally.
With this outlet opened, Nakhon Kitchen currently has five branches (Bedok North Avenue 3, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10, Pasir Panjang Road and Marine Parade Central). It is so great that more food outlets are moving west!
The outlet at Holand Village is rather small, but rate of change is very fast. We went after the lunch crowd, around 2pm, so we did not have to wait long for a table. The food arrived promptly as well.
Thai Mango Salad ($5), a pleasurable burst of sweet, sour, salty and spicy!
The Stir-fried Kang Kong Belachan ($6) was surprisingly more savoury than fiery. I would have preferred it hotter.
I loved the Tom Yam Soup ($6), clear with seafood. For me, it is quite hard for Thai restaurants to go wrong with their tom yam soups. This one was hot and sour and packed with spices! You will feel the burn kick in a bit later.
My sis has to order Green Curry with Chicken ($8) whenever we have Thai food. This was palatable but could do with more chicken.
Since it was a hot day, in addition to the numerous cups of iced water we drank as much to quench the thirst as to put out the flames, we ordered the Thai Fresh Coconut ($5) and Thai Iced Tea ($3). Both drinks are good, but if you want something different yet still authentic, try the Thai Soy Milk ($3).
For dessert, we had the Mango Sticky Rice Served with Coconut Milk ($5). The rice is served warm! I love it when restaurants make the extra effort to heat up the rice.
One thing to note is that while the prices here are very affordable, the portions are not as large as compared to other Thai restaurants. However, that to me is a positive point because with smaller helpings, I will be able to order more dishes and try a wider variety of items.
