Kaleb and I went for a little walk and excursion and we wound up at David Thompson’s Long Chim at Marina Bay Sands for lunch. Well, I went for lunch, he drank his milk.
I thought he had Michelin Stars, but I guess I was wrong. Any way, I have heard a lot about his cooking and the Thai influences and food, so I decided to give it a try.
Located on the second level, above the casino floor, it’s a nice open space.
Billed as Thai Street Food, you enter into the long passageway to the dining room.Spacious and nice looking place. Lunch has a set menu, and I decided to go for it. Started with the Cured Pork Fritters, as the others seemed a little regular to me. The taste is quite nice, not too oily and flavorful inside. The main course was the Duck – a specialty of the house. Tender and flavorful with the hints of the herbs in the smoke. The plum sauce was a nice addition. Just nice! And I always go for dessert. Mango Sticky Rice is too good not to pick. Though the Green Mango Palm Sugar sounded interesting. Perfect, just wish there was a larger portion! Being at MBS it’s a little pricey, but you’re paying for location and name. Give it a try once, then head to Nakhon for cheaper, and maybe even better, food.
