Everybody in Singapore these days is falling in love with Thai food. Well, this is understandable mainly because Thai dishes are becoming more and more accessible to just about everyone. There’s almost a Thai restaurant present in every neighbourhood, thus you wouldn’t be able to miss out on its treats whenever you intend to dine out.

But what if you want to enjoy your Thai meal at home? There are restaurants that provide delivery services, and you can immediately give them a call or place an order online. The dining experience is way different though compared to eating at the restaurant, as you get to eat the comforts of your own home.

So how do you enjoy your Thai food in Singapore delivery? Here are some ways:

  1. Eat it right after it is delivered to your doorstep.

Thai meals are always best served fresh off the fire, especially when it comes to the savoury dishes. This is because while the food is hot you get to taste the bursting flavours of the ingredients used, as compared to when the food has already gone cold.

If you had your food delivered at home, then you should make sure that you are going to eat it right away. By doing this you get to enjoy almost the same dining experience when eating at the restaurant.

  1. Order an hour or two in advance.

If you intend to have Thai food, then you should understand that such meals are not done like fast food. They require ample preparation and cooking time, not to mention the delivery time on top of that. Unlike ordering pizza when you are hungry, ordering Thai treats need to be prepared for.

You may want to order at least an hour in advance, so that by the time the food arrives, you are able to eat it and savour its goodness to the fullest. Ordering when you’re already hungry might put you in a situation wherein you have already lost your appetite while waiting, or you are already full by eating something light before the food arrives.

  1. It is recommended to reheat the soup.

Some people like Thailand’s signature Tom Yum soup so much, they even request it to be delivered to their homes. But the Tom Yum soup is quite hard to keep warm during delivery, thus when it arrives it is already lukewarm or close to getting cold. Such situation is common, so to enjoy the best of its flavours you need to put the dish under fire through a casserole. This way, you are also able to serve the soup in smaller portions in your succeeding mealtimes.

  1. Coconut makes the dish easier to spoil.

Most Thai food in Singapore has coconut milk laced in them, and this makes them have a shorter shelf life. You may notice that dishes infused with coconut milk turn sour after a few hours, thus they either have to eaten off right away, or kept in the refrigerator.

Thai curries often make use of coconut milk, and the same goes with most desserts.

  1. Just reheat; do not fry.

It is a common mistake to fry or sauté Thai dishes to make them taste fresh and zesty again after being placed in the refrigerator for a number of hours from delivery. However, this should not be followed because doing so makes them lose their authentic flavour.

When you are reheating dishes such as Pad Thai or Gaeng Keow Wan Kai, do them via microwave of slow fire heat. This way, their flavours are kept intact and reactivated without being infused with additional oil or unnecessary spices that may make them lose their authentic tastes.
