In case you need further proof that Singapore is a food paradise, Bangkok’s famous restaurant Took Lae Dee has chosen to launch its first overseas branch here on our shores.
Lauded by CNN as Thailand’s best all-night food counter and one of the things that make Bangkok the world’s greatest city, Took Lae Dee has been delighting locals and visitors alike in Bangkok since 1972. While the new branch in Singapore may not be open 24/7, the food we’re getting is nothing short of the authentic quality and amazing value for money that have made the restaurant famous. Took Lae Dee isn’t exaggerating with its name, which literally translates to “cheap and good”.
The next time you’re craving some tom yum, head over to Took Lae Dee at Tai Seng!
Here are five of the restaurant's signature dishes you must order:
2. Tom Yum Soup (Chicken $6.80 / Seafood $8)
A good bowl of Tom Yum is a true testament of a Thai restaurant’s standards, and Took Lae Dee certainly passes the test. Its version of the iconic soup, which comes with chicken or seafood options, strikes a pleasant balance between sour and spicy. Don’t be misled by that deep red colour; this tom yum is light and just mildly spicy, thanks to the fresh lemongrass, limes and various herbs. The result is a delightful and exotic multi-layered taste that awakens all our senses.
