We all know that every neighborhood needs its good, simple, restaurants, that you can rely on when you refuse to cook, wash dishes, or make 2 minute noodles…. again. Tom Yum is cozy, familiar, and …. yummy. Yes, that pun just happened, but only because it’s worth the cheesy descriptions.
They serve really decent dependable South East Asian food. Good, fresh, and cheap, Tom Yum scores big on all three criteria.
Now you are asking yourself: why the Singapore noodles? Well, because they are thin, crunchy, and silky. Their texture pops. And, Tom Yum was clever enough to add a nice yellow curry to tie it all together. Awesome bonus: the chicken basically melts in your mouth.
Tom Yum is in Sea Point, a nice residential area about 15 minutes from the center of town and they don’t have a website, you’ll forgive them once you find out they deliver!
