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”.

Here are five of the restaurant’s signature dishes you must order:
1. Som Tum ($6)
Start your meal on a high note with this refreshing green papaya salad. The sliced papaya slices add a welcome tangy taste to the salad dish. Drizzled with a sweet and spicy sauce, and garnished with crunchy dried shrimps, the salad is an explosion of flavours, to which you can adjust when it comes to the spice level. Those who love heat can gun for the spicier levels, while the less adventurous can also request for less spicy.
