Personal reference - Soi 55 Thai Milk Teas

Thai Iced Milk Tea shop Shop Soi 55 has gone from humble hawker stall at Golden Shoe to a dedicated Thai beverages and bites shop at One Shenton Way. They have also just opened another outlet at No 51 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. WOW. I remembered the one day during 2014 when I went down to the Golden Shoe Market intending to feature the uni-grads turned ‘hawkers’, behind the local start-up which was probably one of the first to sell Thai Iced Tea in a food centre.

The Thai beverages gained popularity with the CBD executives, and the owners eventually had to find a bigger space – at One Shenton Way (the building next to Asia Square, opposite SGX, diagonally opposite Lau Pa Sat). Its other branch is at The Cathay. The shop is so named due to the famous Sukhumvit Soi 55 street known for its exciting nightlife and cafe culture. 55 is also pronounced as “Haha” in Thai, a sign of laughter and joy.

If you haven’t realised, their Thai Iced Milk Tea has got a level higher, both in terms of aesthetics (can customise now) and taste (further fine-tuned). Making this probably one of the most instagrammable Thai Milk Teas in Singapore.

Here are some of the To-Order at Soi 55:

Not many people actually knows Soi 55 serves food now. Only available at the One Shenton outlet, the Thai Kebab with fillings of chicken with special Thai Green Curry sauce is quite legit.

Crisp outer layer, and warm satisfying fillings, mildly spicy. Works great as a grab-and-go meal, better than some boring sandwiches if I may say.
