With countless Thai eateries popping up across Singapore, what sets Soi 47 Thai Food apart is the Thai experience that you get together with your food. We’re talking about the Thai music, decor, and the location that’ll make you feel like you’re in Bangkok.
Just like most eateries in Thailand, Soi 47 Thai Food boasts an extensive menu with dishes meant for sharing so come down with your kakis to try all that the restaurant has to offer! The dishes come in fairly reasonable portions and with modest prices, so you won’t be going home with an empty wallet.
Start your meal with the Stuffed Chicken Wing With Minced Chicken (3 pcs for $6.80). Instead of your usual chicken wings, this one is loaded with a minced chicken filling that makes it even heartier.
Crispy and golden-brown perfection was what we received. Even though the chicken was cooked well, the chicken filling was truly the star of this dish. It was crunchy, meaty and melded with the chicken perfectly.
It was really enjoyable and having only one per person just wasn’t enough.
For something crunchy and chock full of prawns, try the Home Made Breaded Prawn Cake (4 pcs for $6). The prawn cake had a light yet crispy exterior that wasn’t too greasy and overwhelming.
The flavour of the herbs were prominent but didn’t mask the sweetness of the prawns. For an added sweet and tangy dimension, try dipping the prawn cakes into the Thai sweet chilli sauce that’s served on the side.
If you want something a little more interesting than boring steamed rice, consider ordering the Fried Olive Rice ($6). This plate of fried rice comes with fried shallots and lime for you to mix in according to your preference.
The rice was perfectly seasoned, and the squeeze of lime gave a burst of freshness to the dish. Together with the lime, the olive rice was a well balanced dish with salty, sour and umami notes.
The shallots provided a fun textural contrast but it was the seasoning and flavour of the olive rice that made it one of our favourites.
A staple on any Thai menu, the Green Curry With Chicken ($6) was thick, rich and spicy – everything a good green curry should be. The curry contained the usual ingredients like carrots, Thai mini eggplants, and chicken.
The chicken pieces that were prevalent throughout the curry were tender and extremely flavourful. Although the curry was rich, it wasn’t overwhelming and had a nice mouthfeel.
We found that the green curry was punchy, robust and similar to what we’ve previously had in Thailand. The curry was something that we’d love to have with just a side of steamed rice for lunch or dinner.
What’s a Thai restaurant without its hallmark, the tom yum soup? Here at Soi 47 Thai Food, choose from several varieties of this popular dish. We had the Tom Yam Soup Seafood (Cream Style) ($6.80).
Our first few mouthfuls of the soup tasted pretty mild. The more we had however, the more spicy and sour it became. The gradual build-up of flavour made us want more with every mouthful; something we felt made the dish shiok and satisfying.
The seafood was perfectly cooked and tasted fresh, but the highlight for us was definitely the broth.
If you want to jazz up your meal with something a little more lavish, order the Steam Seabass With Thai Lemon Sauce ($19). Expect to receive an entire fish, served atop a metal fish-shaped dish. Even at $19, we felt that it was worth every cent!
The fish was flaky without being mushy while the lemon sauce was mild and complemented the fish well. We were pleasantly surprised that the sauce wasn’t cloyingly sweet, but provided a refreshing citrus flavour to the dish.
The portion is rather large so it’s definitely a must-order to share when you’re dining here with your friends or family.
Serving authentic Thai food that’s well cooked and reasonably priced, Soi 47 Thai Food is a great place to dine with your friends and family. Head down to try out the extensive menu and we guarantee that you’ll be coming back for more!
