Thai Shop at Jalan Hutton

The juicy Moo Pings are not to miss! 😍

Thai Shop at Jalan Hutton

Thai Shop was previously located in a small alley along Kimberly Street, where you will often find many happy diners munching on their arrays of Thai-influenced dishes.

They have now moved to a new place along Jalan Hutton, just right opposite of the Hutton Mansion Heritel and it’s hard to miss.

Other than the restaurant owner, this place is manned mostly by Thai people who are all from Isaan (including his wife). It is no wonder that you’d feel like you’re dining in Thailand when you set foot in this restaurant.

Upon getting an available seat, head over to the back of the shop and find yourself welcomed by a push cart stall where a menu is displayed.

The menus here are unpretentious; and there’s no fancy dishes here. What they serve are mostly authentic Thai foods with economical price tags.

The same area is also where you will find all the actions going on; from grilling of the Moo Ping (Thai grilled pork skewers), stir frying dishes to ice shaving for their desserts.

You’re definitely at the right place if you have been craving for an authentic Thai cuisine fix.

Their Khao Kha Moo (braised pork leg rice), Thai basil chicken rice are both equally yummy and authentic.

Don’t forget to order a couple sticks of Moo Ping to go with the rice dishes. Along with that, the Thai Milk Tea made from the original Thai condensed milk that you won’t be able to resist.
