Cheong Chin Nam Road at Bukit Timah is lined with many casual eateries, making it a suitable place for dinners and supper. The only thing is its limited parking space, but there is always Beauty World MRT station just nearby.
If you are looking for Thai food supper, Time For Thai is opened till wee hours of the night – 4am on Fridays and Saturdays, 3am on the other days.
This makes it suitable socialising eatery for night owls who are Thai food lovers.
Plus, the eatery has been MUIS Halal certified so fellow Muslim friends can satisfy their Thai food cravings as well.
Their signature items include Glass Noodle Claypot with Crab ($59.90), Steamed Sea Bass with Spicy Lemon Sauce ($24.90), Beef Noodles Soup ($9.90), Tom Yum Goong with Coconut Milk ($7.90), Crab Cakes ($13.90), Mango Salad ($5.90), and Pineapple Fried Rice ($5.90).
There are some interesting dishes such as the Dough Fritters with Sangkaya, and Pumpkin with Sangkaya Custard which are popular street foods in Thailand but seldom seen in Singapore.
I enjoyed the Beef Noodles Soup ($9.90) and consider this one of the most comforting bowls I had in a while.
The winning element was the beef broth, robust and flavourful with spices, added with generous servings of beef slices, beef ball and soft tendons.
The rice noodles used also tasted fresh and didn’t clump together.
Prices were affordable as well. I had the Mango Sticky Rice ($4.90) – a steal at this price, which my friend commented, ”The rice is actually slightly warm.”
The contrast of sweet cold mangos and warm sticky slightly salty rice made this quite an alluring dessert to end the meal with.
