Recently established in December 2016, Soi Thai Soi Nice is the newest venture by SIMYEE Holdings that manages Shin-Sapporo Ramen, Shin-Do Japanese Casual Dining, and Atmosphere Bistro. Headed by the Chef Worawong Phairat (Olay), who have been experienced in the food and beverage industry for more than 19 years, each menu here is made fresh, without any preservatives, and well presented. What set a differentiation between Soi Thai Soi Nice and other Bangkok restaurant is the authenticity of their menu also the Royal Thai Hot Pot that you will see down below. Instead of common mookata, this unique hot pot is richer in flavor, texture, and protein.
Tucked away in Alexandra Central, this venue is kind of hidden and for those who not familiar with the area. Every day there would be more than 50 - 80 customers. Usually, the crowd has been dominated by office worker during meal time and family on the weekend. Just reserved your seat if you come with a group of people in order to avoid the long queue.
Stepped inside the venue, guest can experience the royal Thai concept with classy furniture and marble table. The purple cushion chairs and a faux chandelier is what attract me a lot. Perhaps, you can feel so much comfort here.
The one and only Royal Thai Hot Pot (S$ 38.80 / 2pax, S$ 68.80 /3 – 4pax) is definitely stunning. It's perfectly arranged, full of meat and served fresh daily. Featuring two whole crayfish, four mussels, four prawns, thick cuts of roasted pork belly, chicken sausage, hard-boiled egg, enoki mushrooms, cabbage, and instant mama noodles at the base. Start with the pouring process of tom yum soup, then wait for another 3 – 5 minutes until all cooked and soaked up the richness of that stock. I definitely impress with the crayfish that taste so fresh and fragrant. Also, the pork belly that supposed to be chewy I guess but surprisingly it just melts in my mouth. Just mixed it up together and enjoy.
Fried Egg Salad (S$ 6.80) is quite good as well. Featuring the crispy fried egg topped with colorful vegetables, then drizzled with a combination of fish sauce, tamarind sauce, and Thai chili sauce. It's juicy, tangy, and flavorful. Just paired this with a bowl of steam rice for the best experience. How do you think?
Grilled Pork Neck (S$ 9.80) is one of the good appetizers. The pork is nicely cooked with juicy and tender texture while that dipping sauce is simply aromatic and fragrant. Even though it looks just simple, you can expect for more flavor here.
Deep Fried Pork Belly (S$ 9.80) is a common Thai street food dish. I love the way they cut that pork belly until very thin and small that become the bite-sized menu. The fish sauce on the side adds another flavor to it. However, the price seems to be too high compared what you got here.
Cha-Om Omelette (S$ 7.80) is kind of love and hate relationship at the same time. For some people, the strong aroma of herbs and green onions would be appealing and caught them really enjoy this. But, for the rest of them, it will just take away the mood. Personally, I love this. Because I love green onions and crispy omelet.
Prawn Pad Thai (S$ 8.80) is not as good as I expected. The noodle is just dry and less flavor. Luckily that prawn still juicy and fresh.
Hor Mok Ma Praw Talay (S$ 12.80) is quite soggy but still enjoyable. Featuring the steamed egg and otah stir fried with prawns and seafood, served in a coconut shell. The texture of that seafood is unbelievably soft and moist also the strong otah flavor caught me addicted to this. However, the rice is just overwhelming and got a porridge texture to it.
I – Team (S$ 5.80) is a good way to end up the night. The coconut ice cream is just sweet and aromatic while that corn flakes and palm sugar syrup add another dimension of flavor and texture. It's sweet, crispy, and flavourful.
Kao Niao Ma Muang (S$ 5.80) is not my favorite, but some people really like this. The mango is always fresh and sweet while that sticky rice is more than sticky. Personally, I still prefer the coconut ice cream as the dessert instead of this.
Currently, Soi Thai Soi Nice provide you a very attractive lunch sets for S$ 8.80 for several menus above. I do recommend you to try the Royal Thai Hot Pot and Fried Egg Salad that taste seriously delicious. For the rest of the menu, you can consider it twice.
