MAMA Noodles Chicken Nugget with Tom Yum Mayo

This highly creative appetizer features tender chicken thigh meat encased in a uniquely crunchy coating made from crushed MAMA Noodles. The chicken is marinated with an array of aromatic spices until deeply flavoured, then fried to a golden, crispy perfection while retaining a juicy, tender interior. Another highlight is the distinctive tom yum mayo sauce – an ingenious blend of MAMA’s Creamy Tom Yum seasoning and rich mayo that adds lingering layers of fresh flavours without being overpowering, providing a delightful kick for the nuggets perfectly.

Crispy Tiger Prawns with MAMA Crisps & Salted Egg Mayo

The star of this uniquely flavoured dish is the bouncy tiger prawns enrobed in a crackling golden crust. The prawns are battered in a special crispy coating infused with MAMA Noodles’ Salted Egg seasoning powder before being deep-fried to a golden, crunchy perfection. Accompanied by a house-made salted egg yolk mayo sauce brimming with alluring savoury richness, it intertwines with the fresh sweetness of the fried prawns for an exquisite flavour combination.

MAMA Khao Soi Duo with Slow-cooked Chicken

Nara’s take on the famed Northern Thai curry noodle dish Khao Soi showcases the versatility of MAMA Noodles. The chef deftly incorporates MAMA Noodles into their richly aromatic, golden homemade curry broth. A genius touch is adding crispy MAMA Noodles crackers to provide contrasting textures when savoured with the soup. While the broth tantalizes with intense aromatics and a hint of spice, the meltingly tender slow-cooked chicken thigh and shredded chicken served alongside shall not be missed. These succulent proteins harmonize perfectly with the varying soft and crispy noodle textures. Nara’s housemade chilli sauce ties it all together, taking the multilayered flavours to new heights.

Grilled Beef with Cold MAMA Noodles & Thai Fish Sauce

Beyond instant noodles, MAMA offers a diverse range of noodle products, including Egg Noodles used in this dish. These bouncy egg noodles are tossed in a fragrant and spicy sauce, crafted with fermented fish sauce from Northeastern Thailand, imparting a savory-fresh aroma reminiscent of home-cooked flavors. Grilled marinated beef adds depth to the dish, with its juicy texture and meaty aroma perfectly balancing the savory sauce. This chilled noodle dish is served alongside fresh, crisp lettuce, creating a harmonious blend of savory richness and refreshing notes, making it the perfect choice for the summer season.

Thai Salted Egg Napoleon with Coconut Ice Cream (Exclusive at Nara TST branch)

This multi-layered dessert ingeniously combines Eastern and Western flavours: the velvety cheese cream filling is meticulously prepared with MAMA Noodles’ Salted Egg powder, interlacing savoury and sweet notes. Crispy MAMA Noodle crumbles lend a unique bite while contrasting interestingly with the smooth filling, airy cake layers, and buttery pastry. Complemented by refreshing Thai coconut ice cream and homemade pineapple jam, this dessert receives elegant finishing touches of delightful fragrance and sweetness.

Jumbo Handmade Thai Lemon Tea

Made with fresh lemon medica, this tea boasts a refreshing citrus aroma. It skillfully blends the classic Thai tea with a tart-sweet lemon flavour and delicate tea undertones. Quenching your thirst and leaving a delightful lingering scent, it serves as the ideal companion for combating the summer heat and pairs beautifully with MAMA’s flavorful dishes. Served in a bucket, it transports you to the immersive vibes of a relaxing vacation in Bangkok!
