Thai Super Bowl
Posts on Thai Super Bowl have been flooding my socials recently and I decided to jump on the band wagon after noticing pretty good reviews about the place.
Located deep in the heartlands of Hougang. Thai Super Bowl began business in April and have been exponentially gaining popularity ever since.
I admit, there was some level of expectations I had conceived prior to my visit. The images and videos I saw on my socials looked amazing. BUT you know that old saying?
[su_quote cite=”Looks can be deceiving
This is a classic example of just that.
Armed with hungry stomachs and great expectations, we, a party of three, decided to order the signature Thai Super Bowl, $36.
As you can very well see, it looks great! The colors, positioning of ingredients and composition of the image is of a pretty high standard. The taste, however, I’m afraid doesn’t do the image justice.
TIPS: If you do decided to go after reading this, as soon as they serve you your tray/bowl, take out the prawns, squid and mussels. You don’t want them to be over cooked. Also, try to finish your noodles ASAP, they’re going to turn soggy otherwise.
The Thai Super Bowl comes with Prawns, Squid, Crab Sticks, Meatballs, Chicken Minced, 2 eggs amd Mussels cooked in a spicy Tom Yum Broth . Sounds like a pretty good deal for $36 no? Throw in 6 packs of instant noodles too just for that carbohydrate fix.
The Prawns were NOT FRESH. Take a look at Exhibit A, fresh prawns are supposed to have an easy to peel shell and firm inner flesh. This prawn right here has frayed flesh which speaks volumes of its freshness.
As mentioned above, we took out the prawns, squid and mussels as soon as the tray was served but them Mussels were still tough and extremely dry.
The squid was tethering on the edge of failing but there were still some hints of freshness so I’ll give it to them.
Other than that, everything else was honestly pretty normal. Only the Chicken Minced managed to excite my severely disappointed taste buds, but then again, who could possibly mess up Chicken Mince?
The Untruths of Online Marketing
I honestly don’t understand or can begin to fathom the positive reviews this place has on some content platforms. They are all lies, just heed my advice and don’t bother going.
“What they’re serving is essentially a huge pot of instant noodles and charging you a premium for it”
For those additional ingredients, I wouldn’t mind paying that $36. Of course, if they were of a decent quality and standard. But nope, IT FAILED IN ALL ASPECTS.

This is a joint that will definitely not withstand the test of the time if they don’t buck up. They serve other dishes too but I’m not going to stick around to find out more thank you very much.
Expect to wait for hours if you pop by during dinner time. I tried on Father’s day but Dad got impatient and we went to eat somewhere else. Thank goodness for that, or he would have killed me for bringing him to such a place.
