REVIEW: Aoy’s Thai Noodles Bar @ Changi Airport
Operating out of Changi Airport Terminal 3, Aoy’s Thai Noodles Bar offers an array of Thai street food, Thai boat noodles and classic Thai desserts and drinks. There is no GST or service charge which helps to keep the price affordable.
Aoy’s Thai Noodle Bar adopts the open dining concept with self-service collection.
Signature Beef Boat Noodles ($7)
In contrast to the traditional Thai boat noodles that is served in a small bowl, the signature beef boat noodles from Aoy’s Thai Noodle Bar was gigantic. The broth was imbued with the typical Thai flavours of sweet, sour and tame spiciness, you can always add chili flakes to create more excitement.
The rice noodle was smooth and had a nice texture, but the beef slices were a little overdone and somehow lost their tenderness. What a pity!
Wanton Noodles (Dry) ($6.50)
The Thai wanton noodles are much influenced by Chinese migrants and tastes heavenly with the use of lard as the seasoning base. Aoy’s Thai Noodle Bar does not use pork related products and the flavour was compromised to some extent. The noodles were nicely done and the grilled chicken was acceptable but nothing too excited with the taste.
Chicken Boat Noodle ($6.50)
Smooth rice noodles topped with grilled chicken, the Thai flavoured broth along with slices of chicken trying to bring across the essence of Thai cuisine, however, it came slightly short of expectations.
Minced Chicken Porridge ($5.00)
We love Thai-style Teochew fish porridge that is usually packed with the seafood sweetness. Unfortunately, there was no fish porridge available here and only chicken meatball porridge. However, the chicken meatball porridge was a far cry from the typical Thai Teochew fish porridge with the absence of the right fragrance and succulent taste.
Chicken Chop Porridge ($5.50)
Just replaced the chicken meatballs by the chicken chop, it just can’t hold the candle to our favourite fish porridge that we experienced in Bangkok.
Thai Milk Tea ($2.50)
You should not miss the Thai milk tea even if the caffeine will likely to make you suffer insomnia for a night. It is worth it. Smooth Thai tea and the nice tea aroma could temp you for a second or third order which was exactly happened to us.
We left the shop but made a U-turn when the two ladies at home realised they missed out the desserts! And we went back to Aoy’s Thai Noodles Bar and made another order.
Mango Twist ($6.50)
Thai mango is highly sought after here for its heavenly sweetness and smooth texture with its distinct mango fragrance. It went perfectly well with the Thai sticky rice, add some coconut milk for a real taste of Thai dessert.
Peanut Butter Honey ($2.00)
The bread toast was a tad of dry and peanut butter was lacking the natural peanut flavour. However, you can’t expect too much for the price you paid.
Sago Mango ($4.80)
Sticky sago infused with the mango juice and chunks of fresh mango which were light and enjoyable, mimicking some sort of sweet porridge.
Our verdict on Aoy’s Thai Noodles Bar
Aoy’s Thai Noodles Bar probably won’t give you the cloud nine feel but overall a comforting food for a simple Thai street meal.
