Pranakorn: Authentic Thai Food At Changi Village
Injected with life especially when night falls, Changi Village is one of my favourite food hub and night spot in Singapore. While exploring my options outside of the Changi Hawker Centre, I spotted Pranakorn, a Thai eatery located next to the Zebra Crossing along the main streets of Changi Village Road.
They adopted the vintage Bangkok street concept which aims to give customers the feeling of eating in Bangkok city.
Pranakorn (an old name for Bangkok City) is led by Mdm Yongpeerakun Nuttikan together with the support of her extended families in Singapore.
Being born and raised in Thai, Mdm Yongpeerakun ensures Pranakorn serves only authentic and traditional Thai food.
One of the specialties is the Moo Daeng ($5.80) – fried minced pork ball yet with tenderness like fish balls.
Stir fried Thai Style Kang Kong ($5.80). A little wok hei flavour and hint of spiciness for some kick.
Crispy Pork Cutlet ($5.80) were tender, just like those battered cuttlefish cakes. However, the thickness was unacceptable!
These were our mains which were available in set meals. Sticky noodle with minced pork in Tom Yum ($8.90) and Stir Fried Spicy Basil Minced pork with Egg ($8.90). Both came with a choice of beverage and a standard bowl of dessert which was iced grass jelly sprinkled with brown cane sugar.
Don’t know why I didn’t snap a shot of the Basil Minced pork, but it definitely serves as a good benchmark for this dish else where.
Good and authentic Thai Milk Tea which deserved a good toast! Also, cheers to having good buddies!
Pranakorn serves a different style from the likes of Nakhon Kitchen, Joe’s Kitchen and A-roy Thai where flavours are heavier and richer, probably to suit Singaporeans’ palate. So if you are searching for authentic Thai Street delicacies, Pranakorn is probably the closest you can get.
