had a good 2pax thai dinner with wife at thai gold food on 10.7.2015.
wife wanted to see some furniture at “space” located at bencoolen street. we thought might as well eat in the area.
place was small with indoor & outdoor sitting. we were seated 7pm. soon a queue formed.
calamansi was sour & not too sweet, S$1.50 a glass so quite ok. i refer the more intense lemon but this was quite refreshing.
we ordered the S$10 tomyam goong (prawns). there were 6 fresh prawns, soup was good. of course not to be compared with patara which cost 2.5x more, but i liked this better than the clear tomyam talay at nakhon @ amk which i had recently.
we liked the S$10 red curry chicken. this the “dry” curry version. it was very flavourful & the chicken was tender.
the S$10 bbq pork was a recommended dish. it was good.
i am thinking whether i can come up with a version of this. my char siew & roast pork were not great, maybe i should try a different method of doing pork collar.
the total bill came to S$34. the dishes were slightly more expensive than nakhon @ amk. they were more satisfying for me though, it really depend on whether the dish preference & what we ordered. e.g. i prefer the red tomyam to the clear version. 🙂
