Shiok Shiok Night Market – Satisfying your Thai food cravings 24/7
With the closure of Golden Mile complex, many of us have less options to satisfy our late-night Thai food cravings. In our search for more legitimate Thai food options, we recently visited Shiok Shiok Night Market in the heart of Orchard Road, which opens 24 hours.
While the name suggests “night market”, it is more of a “dining place” which opens 24 hours. We loved the vibes here as the combination of open-air dining and Thai pop music certainly created a vibrant atmosphere and instantly transported us to the streets of Thailand, which naturally inspired us to try dishes that are not easily available in Thai restaurants here in Singapore.
Shiok Shiok’s AroiMakMak dinner set for 2-3 pax [S$59.90], available only from 5-11pm daily, consists of the usual big hitters – Waterfall Pork Belly, Tom Yum Goong, Stir-Fried Vegetables, Thai-style Omelette, Thai Fish Cakes and two portions of steamed rice – delighting Thai food lovers at an excellent value for money.
Waterfall Pork Belly
Crispy Pork Belly combined with spicy and tangy lime dressing with fresh herbs topped with toasted rice powder. A must-have! This salad is everything you love about Thai food.
Tom Yum Goong
Thai Fish Cakes
If you have more than 2-3 pax or you want more dishes, here you can add on these dishes at a discounted price!
Thai Yellow Curry with Live Crab [+S$50, down from ala carte price S$60]. A classic from the south of Thailand, many of us who frequent Thailand may have tried the famous versions at Somboon Seafood and Savoey. We were impressed with the execution of Shiok Shiok’s rendition – a rich yet well-balanced combination of Thai yellow curry, milk and egg.
(Note: It might be a good idea to pre-order your crabs as the staff mentioned they sell out on a daily basis).
Three Taste Fish [+S$30, down from ala carte price S$45.80]. Spicy, Sweet & Sour are the three characteristics of this classic Thai dish, and this could be our favourite version in Singapore.
We loved how the Sea Bass was deep-fried to a beautiful golden crust while the flesh remained juicy. The sauce checked all the right boxes – sweet from palm sugar, tang from tamarind and umami from fish sauce. Adding crispy deep-fried basil on top was a thoughtful touch to elevate the dish further, one we did not take for granted.
Shiok Shiok Night Market opens 24 hours, making it a good supper spot for those looking for Thai food.
Tom Yam Mama Seafood [S$30.80] (Feeds 2-3 pax)
Classic Thai instant noodles in Tom Yum broth packed with meat and seafood – probably the best hangover supper after a night out in town.
Platter set [S$39.90] (Feeds 2-3 pax)
Their Platter set consists of Deep Fried Pork Garlic, Signature Pork Skewer (Moo Ping), Thai Fish Cake, Chicken Skin and Mango Salad, and it makes a good snack if you are there to chill over drinks.
Apart from the above recommendations, Shiok Shiok Night Market is also known for their mookata and boat noodles which are available till late.
If you’re craving Thai food for dinner or late-night supper in a casual setting, Shiok Shiok Night Market is the ideal place. You can enjoy the vibrant Thai ambience and indulge in a wide array of delicious Thai dishes while unwinding with friends.
