If you are going to renew your passport at the ICA building and want some good food after; you’ll need to try Soi 47 Thai Food.
Located at King George’s Avenue, the restaurant’s second outlet is just a 10 minutes’ walk away from Lavender MRT station.
But what really makes Soi 47 stand out from the numerous Thai restaurants in Singapore is its authentic AND affordable Thai food! The prices are much lower than other restaurants of the same quality standards and they do NOT use any added MSG!
Meet Chef Arm, the head chef of Soi 47 Thai Food (King George’s Ave). Ang first opened the Toa Payoh outlet in 2017 after spending three years in Thailand learning from the chefs. Now his staff, like Chef Arm, are mostly from Thailand and they strive to serve authentic Thai food in Soi 47.
So, you are feeling a little spoilt for choice with their extensive menu, don’t worry! We have the top seven dishes that Ang, the owner of Soi 47 Thai Food, recommends you try at his restaurant.
First dish- Papaya Salad ($3.80)
“A must have when you are having a Thai feast.”
Papaya Salad or Som Thai is a classic Thai appetiser made from shredded unripe papayas.
The flavours are tangy, sweet, and a little spicy, perfect for 开胃 (kai wei) or whetting your appetite so you’ll be ready for the next dish!
Second dish- Stuffed Chicken Wing with Minced Meat ($6.80)
Just when you thought fried chicken wings couldn’t get any better, these chicken wings will blow you away!
Deboned and stuffed full of minced meat, you can take a big crisp bite of delicious and juicy meat without worrying about bones.
Third dish- Steam Seabass with Thai Lime Sauce ($19.00)
Tell us where else you can get a whole fish for less than $20. We’ll wait!
Fresh, tender meat paired with the spicy sauce; the price is not the only thing that keeps customers coming back for more.
Ang is also very particular about serving fresh seafood in his restaurants. Hence, you can be assured that you’re getting good but cheap food!
Fourth dish- Claypot Tang Hoon with Prawns ($10.00)
“This savoury dish will definitely satisfy your appetite.”
We couldn’t have said it better as this highly recommended dish is deceptively simple but so flavourful.
Reminiscent of the Chinese dish of steamed prawns and tang hoon, this dish is just as delicious if not better!
The prawns are fresh and succulent and the tang hoon is bursting with flavour from having absorbed the sauce. No wonder this is the best-selling dish on the menu!
Fifth dish- Green Curry with Chicken ($6.00)
For those who love curry but can’t really take too much spice, this Green curry is perfect.
Thick, sweet, and milky, the curry goes well the rice and is great for sharing or having a hearty meal!
You can also choose to have either chicken, prawns, or seafood with your curry.
Sixth dish – Tom Yum Soup with Seafood ($6.80)
“What is Thai food without a good bowl of tomyum soup?”
Do you prefer clear or cream tom yum? Well, Soi 47 offers both with options of seafood, prawn or chicken! But as the seafood is really fresh here, customers prefer the seafood option!
No matter which style you choose, the tomyum soup is just sour and spicy which goes perfectly with rice.
Seventh dish- Red Ruby ($3.00)
A traditional Thai dessert that needs no introduction and a great contender against the usual mango sticky rice.
The ice is shaved on the spot and drizzled with sweet red syrup and fresh coconut milk. Topped with red rubies (tapioca-covered water chestnuts) that gives a chewy crunch, this dessert is perfect for Singapore’s scorching hot weather!
