Celebrity chef David Thomp­son’s Sin­ga­pore out­post serves Thai street food in a cosy place in­spired by Bangkok’s vi­brant street cul­ture. It’s pop­u­lar for its pad Thai, which melds sweet, tangy and spicy flavours; it has just enough wok hei for a de­li­cious finish. The chef’s take on the soft­shell crab is dif­fer­ent from the usual heav­ily bat­tered, crusty, deep-fried ver­sion we’re ac­cus­tomed to—his ver­sion is saltier, but with just enough herbs and greens to make it palat­able. For a dish that packs a punch, the Nong’s stir-fried long egg­plant, served with minced pork and prawns, is de­li­ciously soft and smoky—per­fect with rice.
