Thai food restaurants and eateries are aplenty in Singapore—whether you are looking for one that serves Thai food in a luxurious setting or an eatery that whips up authentic grub that will bring your taste buds all the way back to Bangkok, Singapore has got it all.
Hom Aroy Thai Food is a hidden gem situated on the third storey of Coronation Plaza and they serve a myriad of quality Thai food at affordable prices with substantial portions.
THAI GREEN CURRY
We opted for the Green Curry (S$8) at Hom Aroy Thai Food—at first glance, it may seem pretty underwhelming but dig in and you will find a generous serving of chicken pieces as well as vegetables.
Tastewise, Hom Aroy Thai Food’s version of Green Curry leaned towards the sweeter side rather than savoury. We felt that they added just the right amount of coconut to the curry, giving it a pleasant sweet taste and a fragrant aroma just the way we preferred it to be. However, we suggest pairing this with white rice because the sweetness may get too cloying after a while.
PINEAPPLE FRIED RICE
If you are feeling like indulging in a good plate of carbs, the Pineapple Fried Rice (S$6) would be a good option for you. The dish was well-loaded with a variety of vegetables, fresh pineapples, numerous plump prawns, before being topped off with meat floss to give the fried rice an added texture.
The portion is enough to be shared between 2 people so sharing would be a good option especially if you wish to try a greater variety of dishes!
TOM YUM SOUP
We were pleasantly surprised by the Tom Yum Soup at Hom Aroy Thai Food—for S$8, what you get is a generous portion of fresh prawns, mushrooms, fish, vegetables drowned in a broth that is appropriately sour, sweet, and mildly spicy.
We found ourselves mopping up the entire bowl within minutes. If you are a fan of Tom Yum Soup, this is a must to order.
Hom Aroy Thai food shares the same space as other food stalls so it can get crowded especially during lunch hours on weekdays. With such huge portions and affordable prices, we weren’t surprised to see many students patronising the stall.
Hom Aroy Thai food serves over 20 Thai dishes, including dishes such as Phad Thai (S$6.50) and Fried Omelette Onion/ Pork with Rice (S$6).
