Thai In Town re-opened as Tomyum Mama, and we decided to give it a go~
- Deep Fried Sea Bass with Fish Sauce and Mango Salad ($24.90 nett): Our favourite dish, the fish was deep fried till really crispy, and the meat was tender. The mango salad by the side gave a refreshing lift to the dish.
- Thai Wanton Mee ($5.90): This was not bad, with generous amount of ingredients, given the price.
- Pandan Chicken ($4.90 for 2 pieces): Ah, the sad and dry tiny little chicken chucks. Enough said. =X
- Homemade Meat Balls ($4.90 for 8 pieces): This was surprisingly addictive despite looking rather dry on the outside. The meat balls actually had some juice in them! Do note that there was prawn in the minced meat mixture.
- Baby Kai Lan with Mushrooms ($7.90): This was a rather salty plate of vegetables.
Drinks-wise, we tried the Thai Iced Milk Tea ($2.90), and the Thai Iced Lemongrass ($2.90), which we thought were not bad, but a little on the sweet side.
While our friends were enjoying themselves in Bangkok, we decided to console ourselves by having some Thai food 😛
We had walked past Magic Wok, a halal-certified restaurant, a few times before, and decided to give it a shot.
- Sambal Kang Kong ($6.80+GST): Our favourite dish, as it was not overpowering with its fiery sambal.
- Thai Style Fried Fish ($18.80): This was also not bad, the fried fins were crispy enough to be a crunchy treat. The sweet and spicy sauce was quite balanced too.
- Pandan Leaf Chicken ($8.80 for 4 pieces): This was a letdown as the chicken pieces were too dry.
- Thai Style Pineapple Rice ($5.80): There was a distinctive curry flavour to it. The prawn and chicken did not taste very fresh 😦
- Thai Iced Tea ($2.50): This was pretty standard.
Without service charge, this is one of the more wallet-friendly options in Thomson Plaza.
Note: Plain water is available at 50 cents per cup.

Thai Wanton Noodle
This is a new place along Upper Thomson, and we thought we should try it before its gone!
Ok lah, to be fair, not many restaurants along this stretch did wind up, but we have seen a few during our recent years of roaming around this stretch!
This restaurant is just beside Huay Kwang Thai and we believed it took over a Malay food stall (which we had tried once).
The interior is simple with cement floors and fixed tables. The interesting part about the tables is that the waiters can put a plank between 2 tables (there are groves along the edge of the tables to fit the plank in) and make it into a table of 4! Of course one can put more planks and turn the tables into one huge communal table. How innovative!
