Media Tasting at Victory Boat Noodle Cafe
The next time you are in the vicinity of IKEA Alexandra, you might want to give those meatballs a miss and head to Victory Boat Noodle Cafe. With a slightly higher price tag, their boat noodle also comes in a heartier portion than the traditional boat noodles in Bangkok. Customers get to choose from two flavours – beef and pork; with each bowl filled with a thick and flavourful broth. The springy texture of the rice noodle was a pleasant surprise and we can’t get enough of it.

Hailed as one of the most beloved Thai street food, their Thai Basil Chicken is not for the faint-hearted. Integrating the bold spicy flavours with the savoury basil, their Thai Basil Chicken is best served over some fluffy jasmine rice.

A common sight in Thai street markets, Moo Ping, or grilled pork on a skewer, is a popular snack. Victory Boat Noodle Cafe’s attempt at re-creating this dish was flawless. Succulent and bursting with flavour, the pork skewer is a perfect snack on its own or with the mains. You can dip the skewers in the sauce to further amped up the savoriness.

Fragrant jasmine rice, fresh seafood and a touch of the zesty Thai flavours, their Seafood Fried Rice was easily the crowd’s favourite of the night.

Ending off the dinner on a sweet note, the coconut-milk-infused glutinous rice in their Mango Sticky Rice was made in-house and extra chewy. Topped off with a fresh and sweet mango, you can hardly go wrong with this dish.

Coconut-milk based, their Red Ruby was pretty impressive. Compared to the usual red ruby in Singapore, their ruby-hued water chestnut had a crunchier texture. The quality and taste of their handmade red rubies definitely tops those store-bought ones.
