TOM YUM KUNGFU












Tom Yum KungFu
16 Circular Road
Singapore
11.30am - 3pm and 6pm - 10.30pm weekdays,

till midnight on Sat, Closed on Sunday

As I just came back from wintry Seoul where warmth is desired on a -12C weather condition, I got an email to savour hot tom yum soup with some frens.   Wished this happens in Seoul then and that would be a perfect match to have steamy hot soup amidst a darn shivering cold weather.

Opened a year ago, this NO GST small casual restaurant is crowded and despite our reservation for six (from four to five and now six), we were placed at two joined tables just outside the eatery although we preferred the inside.  However, seeing the squeezy small place, outside was definitely better.   Many tables were having the popular Thai steamboat and the aroma of grilled beefs whiffed through the air.

offers little help as we were spoilt for choice as to what to order and we kept to those close at heart like Fresh Mango Salad,  CLEAR Tom Yum Soup, Pad Thai,  Isaan FRIED CHICKEN WING which was very delicious and Deep Fried Sliced Fish.

















Prices are very reasonable and owner, Kelvin Giam's venture together with his Thai wife offered some authentic Thai fares that I felt I could not have easily tried off the streets even in Bangkok (it took me some time to find such food during my last trip).  However, the Tom Yum soup was a bit too sourish then flavourful and the pad thai was rather bland but the surefire winner must be the steamboat which caught our attention though we did not order this $25 dish.
