Looking for Thai food in the heartlands? Wang Thai Kitchen serves Thai food, right in Toa Payoh, surrounded by a number of coffee shops and eateries.
Menu is organized, and on first thought, I nearly wanted to order most of the dishes!
Appetizer: Thai Fish Cake ($7.50 for 5 pieces). Quite like the firm yet soft texture of the fish cake. Nice dish to start with!
Appetizer: Pandan Leave Chicken ($7.50 for 5 pieces).
Soup: Tom Yam with Thai Fresh Mushroom ($10.00). Soup is great, and I was the one who finished every scoop left in the big serving bowl! But if you are looking at some damn powerful sour and spicy soup, this is truly not one of them.
Chicken: Fried Chicken with Pepper in Hot Plate ($12.00).
Fish: Crispy Garoupa with Mango Salad ($30.00). We waited, expecting some sauce to come along shortly, but nope. Sliced mango stripes which are quite dried, and fish is although fresh, but lacking of taste. Should have gone for the sambal chili version, which hopefully might better!
Vegetables: Stir-Fried Kai Lan with Oyster Sauce ($10.00). Love the crispiness!
Egg: Thai Style Omelette with Prawn ($8.00). Seen other pictures where their omelette is fluffy, but mine came flat!! Spotted any "punctured holes"?
Rice and Noodles: Pineapple Fried Rice ($10.00). Having eaten others, Wang Thai's version is lacking of pineapple fruits in it, and overall just doesn't taste yummy at all :(
Dessert: Mango with Sticky Rice ($5.00). Sticky rice is being served warm which is commendable, because some places do serve cold rice!
Overall, can be well rated as average. I do not feel that this is authentic Thai food, as I've had others which seems more to what Thai food be like, in my perspective. I might not return again, but if I do, it will probably be a simple and fast "kill-off" craving for Thai food.
