Hidden in plain sight at the first level of Alexandra Central Mall, Victory Boat Noodle Cafe is a relatively new Thai eatery that specialises in boat noodles. Traditionally served on the boats that travel through the canals of Bangkok, boat noodles have become one of the most sought after street food in Thailand.
Those who are not travelling to Bangkok and craving for a steaming bowl of boat noodle can find a humble version of the classic noodle dish at Victory Boat Noodle Cafe.
The signature Victory Boat Noodle ($5.00) comes in a pork or beef option, and is packed full of flavours from the deep-brown broth made of pork bones, dark soya sauce, garlic and spices. The dish is completed with perfectly cooked slices of pork meat, meat balls, bean sprouts, kang kong and fried garlic.
Beside the standard rice noodle, Victory Boat Noodle Cafe offers 5 types of noodles to choose from, include kway teow, bee hoon, tang hoon, yellow noodle and instant noodle.
We recommend the Tom Yum Seafood Noodle Soup ($7.00) if you are looking for something with a spicy kick.
To go along with the boat noodles is a selection of Thai specialities such as Thai Vermicelli Seafood Salad ($10.00), Thai Papaya Salad ($8.00), Grilled Pork Collar ($8.00), Moo Ping ($5.50), Tom Ka Gai ($8.00) and more.
The noodle dishes especially the boat noodle is simple yet flavorsome, but there’s also plenty of choices including rice dishes like the Braised Pork Rice ($7.00) is equally satisfying and shouldn’t be abandoned.
The menu features only two desserts, a Mango Sticky Rice ($8.00) and Red Ruby ($4.00). Nothing fancy but good enough to end the meal on a sweet note.
