Thong Smith is well-known for its authentic boat noodles. Boat noodles is one of Thailand’s famous noodles dishes served in a thick aromatic broth. I stumbled upon this restaurant as I was looking for a place to have dinner at the EmQuartier mall.
At Thong Smith, one can choose between pork, beef, and chicken boat noodles with the option of 3 different noodles – original rice noodles, vermicelli, and egg noodles. For those who prefer non-spicy, the chicken boat noodles are served in a clear soup. One can also choose your preferred level of spiciness.
The restaurant’s menu is attractive, with enticing pictures of each dish well presented, and the food prices were reasonable.
I love spicy food, so I ordered the beef boat noodles topped with beef slices and beef balls with medium heat (quite spicy). The broth was thick with a great balance of flavors- tangy, sweet, spicy, and savory.
The wontons were fried to a crispy golden brown perfection. Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Scrumptious!
The pandan noodles with coconut milk is very similar to a dessert back home (Malaysia) called Cendol, which is one of my favorite Malaysian desserts. I was overjoyed when I saw this on the menu. It was the perfect dessert to soothe the tongue after the spicy bowl of noodles.
