Oink Noona: Gu Thai Noodle Cafe, POMO

"If we only has this life, this adventure oh then I..."

Anyeong! Today has been such a weird day in term of the weather but looking at how the world is nowadays, an irregular weather can be considered normal, really. So this morning started with heavy showers which Noona enjoyed so much as it has been awhile since the last time she could sleep in under the rainy weather. But few hours later, the hot weather has come back to this island of Singapore. Oh well.

At least the hot weather pushed Noona to exit her house to go for her zumba class.

After some calories are shed, it is now time to indulge in some Thai food. There are some nice Thai food in Singapore so that you do not have to fly all the way to Bangkok to enjoy them (unless you want to try to break free from the usual Singapore's weekends). However, despite know a few authentic Thai restaurants in Singapore, Noona and her Saturdate did not know that there is one Thai restaurant in POMO at Dhoby Ghaut, Gu Thai Noodle Cafe.

Gu Thai Noodle Cafe is located right beside Ya Kun Kaya Toast, a nice coffee shop which Teh-C Noona loves the most (but she does not dare to try drinking it after 6PM). The restaurant is not too big and yet not too small either so securing seats usually pose no problem if there are only 2 - 4 of you.

We ordered two main dishes and one side dish. Initially we wanted to order the chicken-wrapped-in-leaves which is a classic Thai food but we were informed that the restaurant ran out of this dish. Sad but we quickly moved on to the next appetiser that we feel like trying, the spring rolls. The ironic thing is, the spring rolls came much later than the two main dishes that we ordered. Thankfully, they taste hot, crispy and so good especially after dipping them into the Thai chili sauce.

Our two main dishes are totally carbo-loaded but don't they look good on table? After all, the perks of eating with friend is the fact that you can share your love and calories. Get fat or slim together, no?

The fiery red fried rice is Tom Yum Fried Rice. Noona personally finds this dish to be very interesting because she has never tried out fried rice served with Tom Yum soup. It tastes so good although she suspects it is partly because she is a forever-fan of fried rice, which is a very popular dish in Indonesia.

Noona's Saturdate ordered a plate of Omelette Phad Thai. The concept of this phad thai served by Gu Thai Noodle Cafe is kinda similar to Omurice from Japan. Instead of rice, you will find phad thai inside the omelette. Noona's Saturdate happily mixed all the chili flakes and the peanuts and this creating a very spicy (but nice) kick to the whole dish. Hahaha.

In order to extinguish the fire inside our mouth, we walked back to the nearby Plaza Singapura to order dessert, a bowl of Jiufen taro balls from a dessert shop named BlackBall. While it is not bad, it still fails in comparison to the original taro balls sold at Jiufen Old Street in Taiwan. Huuu, this makes Noona suddenly misses Taiwan.
