Singtong Thai Food and Sushi in Palm Bay brings palate-pleasing cuisine to North Brevard
| For FLORIDA TODAY
Can there be too many Thai restaurants? No, never, so it is definitely wonderful that another Thai chef has decided to throw his toque in the ring with a new option for fans of Thailand’s palate-pleasing cuisine.
In January, Sarawut “Tiger” Chuenchom launched his Singtong Thai Food and Sushi restaurant in Palm Bay in the Babcock Street/Palm Bay R0ad, location of the late El Bohio.
Tiger went for a logo of a lion lifting a cloche dome cover to reveal a tasty dish. The reason for the choice is an affinity for large kitty cats.
“Singtong means lion in Thai,” he said.
Singtong is not fancy in appearance and ambiance, but delivers in taste, thanks to its chef. A native of Southwest Thailand, Tiger migrated to Arizona before settling in Brevard, where he served as chef at many of the local Thai restaurants.
You cannot err with his Yum Salad ($8.95), available with choice of chicken, pork or tofu, and, for an upcharge, beef and seafood. Tiger prepares it in the classic manner and offers a large enough portion for the appetizer to easily serve as a main entrée for lighter appetites.
Money may not buy love, but $15.95 can purchase sushi to love with Tiger’s Sea of Love roll. The tuna-intensive roll features cucumber, scallions, grilled tuna, sesame seed and roe with kimchi sauce and spicy mayo.
The Pad Kee Mao, or Drunken Noodles, also vie for your affections. The sauteed rice noodles with basil leaves, onions, bell peppers, snow peas and scallions are served, as are all the noodle dishes at Sintong, in a vegetarian version for $12, with chicken, pork, beef or pork meatball for $14, and with shrimp or squid for $16.
All the traditional curries, Thai soups, salads, plus Pad Thai and more, are available, of course, as are the expected selections of teriyaki and bento boxes. Lunch versions cover a large number of items on the menu.
Instead of the sushi boats, Singtong features “Surfboards” that range from $23.95 for one guest to $110 for four. House wines and beers can take care of the liquid portion of the meal, as can the Thai Boba Tea ($4.95), which is also available frozen in flavors such as pineapple, mango and honeydew for $5.95.
The restaurant is currently offering several promotions, including 10% off with a $40 purchase, as well as 10% off your first online order through ChowNow.
Singtong Thai Food & Sushi is at 4651 Babcock St. N.E., Unit 14, Palm Bay. For more information, call 321-345-5029 or visit singtongthaifood.com.
