Beef with chili turmeric at Pure Thai ShophouseTo fashion this five-alarm delight, wok-charred slivers of beef are tossed with kafir lime leaves and sliced green beans (vegetables vary by season). They're bathed in a thin, orange-tinted sauce chock-ful

Very hole-in-the-wall type joint. but you know you're getting authentic thai food when everyone from the wait staff to the cooks are Thai. I actually ordered catering from here but definitely coming back sometime to try out some of their other items. I loved the curry puffs, chicken wings, and of course the chicken satay. I got rave reviews at the event so I definitely recommend it!

Stumbled on to this little gem during a cold rainy day. It's a pretty small place that can maybe seat at maximum... 20 people?

What I really like about this joint is the level of authenticity, from decor, music to food. This is some next level Thai stuff.

The Thai milk tea was exceptional, my fried rice with lump crab meat was divine and with a side order of fried egg ( which was the MOST FLUFFIEST thing I've ever had).

My friend had noodles with roast pork - at glance, I thought it was gonna be dry but it actually wasn't. 

Oh, ALWAYS ORDER THE ROASTED SPARE RIBS. You'll be glad you did.

Also, make sure you have an open palate when you go here.

Will be back to order everything.
