Siam Society is a modern Thai restaurant located in the trendy F&B enclave at Jalan Riang. It is the newest tenant there, having just started operations last November.
The restaurant is founded by two brothers who love to eat Thai food but find that most of the Thai food found locally have been too toned down to suit local taste. In order to bring authentic-tasting Thai food to Singaporeans, the two brothers decided to start Siam Society and their instruction to the chefs is “cook like how you will cook for the Thais”.
The two brothers are not newbies in the F&B business. They also operate Soi Thai Kitchen in Tampines which has been in operation for over two years, with it’s own regular customer base.
I had lunch at Siam Society recently with Rachel and Asher. These are the dishes we sampled:
We loved the modern atmosphere of the place. Slurping down tom yum soup on a rainy day in Jalan Riang was a wonderful way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.
The servings are quite large and prices are pretty reasonable. The signature pork knuckle is a must-try. For those who are unaccustomed to Thai level of spiciness, be sure to ask the kitchen to go easy on the chili when ordering. 🙂
