Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, Golden Mile Complex

Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, Golden Mile Complex

I've only heard about De Tongue Thai (#02-33 Golden Mile Complex, 5001 Beach Road, tel : +65 9626 1913) recently but according to their website, they've been operating since the 80s. The shop's location is at the corner of the second floor so I guess for the most of us who aren't regulars at Golden Mile Complex, they wouldn't have as much visibility as say Diandin Leluk.

Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, prawn porridge

We ordered their prawn porridge because it looked good on the menu. It didn't look much like that picture on their menu though. Those prawns were much smaller looking and this was akin to Teochew styled porridge which was basically rice in a broth rather than the congee style which I was thinking of. The broth had a sweetness and was deliciously garlic-ky.

Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, yum mama talay

Their yum mama talay was warm, tangy and appetizing. With a bit of heat. If the picture wasn't apparent, it's a noodle salad with seafood. Pretty tasty with the crushed peanuts that were available in their condiment cups on every table.

Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, mango salad

I liked their spicy mango salad too which was delicious with a spoonful of sugar and lots of crushed peanuts. Those helped with the acidity that's often found in such salads.

Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, fried pig intestines

We had some fried pig intestines that came with very fragrant bits of fried garlic which were really good. These intestines were chewy, not in a bad way, and salted very lightly compared to the Chinese variety that can be found in porridge stalls.

Dee Tongue Thai by Rung Mama, isaan sausages

Wanted to try their grilled pig's tongue but they were sold out. So we swapped that order for some snappy Isaan styled sausages which were stuffed with pork and rice and also garlicky. Don't mind coming back again.
