Thailand’s street noodle dish of yentafo may not be very popular in Singapore yet. This is likely to change once Yentafo Kruengsonge from Bangkok opens its first Singapore outlet at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard on Nov 1.
The dish has rice noodles in a light savoury broth, with a mildly sweet and spicy pink yentafo sauce made with fermented red tofu and cooked Thai red rice.
The brand was founded in 1999 and has 28 outlets in Bangkok and two in Laos.
In Singapore, four choices of yentafo are available, with flat noodles and pink sauce shipped from Bangkok. The Yentafo Kruengsonge soup (pictured) features flat rice noodles topped with ingredients such as fish ball, squid ball, fish ball with tofu, fried tofu, fried seasoned taro and black fungus mushroom.
A dry version is also available and diners can choose from three levels of spiciness.
Other noodle options include tom yam noodles (soup or dry), Thai clear soup noodles with fish balls, and dry noodles with fish balls. Prices range from $6.50 to $9.
The menu also features appetisers, rice dishes and desserts.
The brand’s entry here is a collaboration with Minor Food Group Singapore. Yentafo Kruengsonge’s next two outlets, to open within the year, will be at National University Hospital and Kallang Wave mall. Other brands under the group include the ThaiExpress chain of casual Thai restaurants and French bistro chain Poulet.
