Fancy some iced thai milk tea in Singapore? Well, if you have a craving for it (like I do sometimes), then Nam’s is the place you should head to! 🙂 It’s conveniently located in the CBD area, at Far East Square, which is within walking distance of both Telok Ayer and Raffles Place MRT stations. We visited it on a weekday at around 2pm, and it was quite empty. We also noticed that most people takeaway the drinks, and why not, when it’s such a steal?
The entrance of Nam’s. Look for the sign in Far East Square that states “Heritage Way”. Nam’s is located within that street. Nam’s does not have a very big space for dining in, and it can get crowded during lunch hour, so do take note. 🙂
The interior is decorated simply, and gives off a warm, homely vibe.
We sat at this corner when we were there haha.
You order your drinks and food at the counter. It’s self-service for the drinks, and there is a small space (on the right side of the pic) where you can pick up your orders. The staff only deliver food to your tables if you’re dining in. The staff are quite friendly, and a good thing about Nam’s is that there are no hidden charges, so the prices you see is what you will have to pay! 🙂
I ordered a double chicken & ham multigrain sandwich set for S$6. All sandwich sets come with coffee/tea, and if you want an iced thai milk tea, you just have to top-up $0.50. The sandwich was tasty enough, and the almonds at the side went well with it.
C’s egg mayo multigrain sandwich set (S$5.80). The egg mayo was not superb, but it was ok, kinda like Subway’s egg mayo haha.
The iced thai milk tea (S$2.80 ala-carte) even comes in the same authentic cups you get when you buy them in Bangkok! :p Although these cups feel slightly flimsier than the ones in Bangkok. I’ve no clue why though.. I felt that it was less sweet than the ones I had in Bangkok, but nevertheless it was still good! Being less sweet is good I guess, too much sugar isn’t good too right?!
Shibuya thick toast with vanilla ice cream (S$7.90) as dessert). Great thing is that they gave TWO balls of ice cream! So that means you can share your toast without fighting over ice cream hahaha. :p The toast itself was quite good actually, although After You’s one is still better. That said, Nam’s thick toast is still one of the better ones in Singapore that I’ve tried, and definitely one of the most value-for-money toasts!
A nice café to spend a quiet afternoon at. Most of the customers were office workers, which is not a surprise, since there are many offices located in the vicinity of Nam’s. Most of the customers also ordered takeaway, and this is probably one of the reasons why this place is so good to chill at, since there aren’t that many customers who will sit down and talk (except during lunchtime). The food is reasonable, and the drinks are good and very reasonably-priced. Nam’s also serves coffee as well, so if you’re not a Thai tea kind of person, not to worry, you can always order their other drinks. 🙂
