Media Tasting at Thailicious
Liang Seah Street is where I call it the street with many steamboats. It’s conveniently located at Bugis and within walking distance from Bugis Junction. Besides steamboat, you can also try Thai cuisine from Thailicious. Thailicious is a new Thai cafe, started from a collaboration between a Thai and Singaporean team. And on the weekend car-free nights, you’ll see many tables and chairs set on the road. That’s how we dine in Thailand, isn’t it!
Eunice, one of the partners from Thailicious, believe in the authenticity of boat noodles. Ingredients are flown directly from Thailand and carefully handpicked by the restaurant’s Thai chefs. If you have noticed, the chefs and service crews are from Thailand.
It’s hard to go wrong with Thai boat noodles. There are two types of Thai boat noodles (beef/pork) to choose from! I’ve tried both and my bias goes to the pork boat noodles. The rich and flavourful broth is prepared daily from scratch, boiled and simmered with a rich mesh of bones, herbs, spices, and aromatics for at least two hours. Alongside with thinly sliced pork, pork balls, and rice noodles. Glad that they offer small portion such that we could try and it’s affordably priced starting from S$1.90 only! But I can say, the small portion is definitely not enough if you’re a fan of the pork broth.
Thai boat noodles (big) at S$7.50.
Pad thai with prawns coated in thin, crepe-like layer of omelette and set beautifully on lotus plate. The noodles were lightly sweet sauced with prawns, bean sprouts, chilli flakes and peanut crush. Probably one of the popular dishes as I see this dish on most of the table.

Giant prawn tom yum soup cooked with mussels, chunky slices of fish, and Thai aromatic herbs. Glad that the Thai chef has managed to tone down over spicy creamy tom yum soup with chunky tomato which turns out just nice for us.
Seafood tom yum soup at S$12
We’ve tried the pineapple rice and found it to be too bland, not much flavour. However, we like the plump raisins and crunchy nuts.
Pineapple rice at S$8.90.
Sticky rice with beautifully half sliced sweet mango hits all the sweet, silky, creamy spots in this dessert. What I also like is the crunchy popping happening in the mouth!
Mango sticky rice at S$10.
