Fans of Thai food rejoice, for you’ll have yet another authentic Thai eatery to get your padthai craving fixed. From humble beginnings three years ago at Harbourfront’s Tuckshop, Thai Goldmine Kitchen has expanded their sawadee to having their very own shophouse at Kitchener Road.
The location at Kitchener Road means it’s an easy walk from Farrer Park MRT station, an area where good Thai food is hard to come by. If you’re driving however, parking is incredibly hard to find. Your best bet would be City Square Mall.
Loved the fried garlic bits atop the chunky pork slices. I could snack on this all day long and not get jelat.
This was a little surprising for me. I had expected the pork to be minced, but yet it came in juicy bite sized pieces. The dish itself was flavorful but it wasn’t as spicy as I hoped it would be.
I was very impressed with this green curry. Having tried a lot of Thai green curries from various Thai restaurants, Thai Goldmine Kitchen’s green curry really stood out for me. It’s not your usual milky and starchy green curry; the aroma and texture of this green curry is superb. Plus, they were really generous with the ingredients (mainly chicken, woots!).
This dish was done well. The omelette was fluffy and the prawns were fresh. Usually, such Thai omelettes would be dripping with oil but this was not too bad.
It could be me, but I generally prefer red tomyam soup to the clear ones. Red tomyam soups have that creamy yet sweet taste that clear soups lack. For this particular tomyam soup, I thought it could be spicier. I also didn’t like that they included crabsticks because I feel that cooking soups with crabsticks is something I can do at home, so I expect something better at restaurants.
Thai Goldmine Kitchen is a good alternative to the famous Nakhon where snaky queues form even before the eatery opens for dinner. So why wait when you can have something else that’s just as authentic, delicious and affordable elsewhere?
