Muay Thai, or Thai boxing, is as synonymous with the Land of Smiles as any of the nation’s famed street food. Perhaps it’s not so strange then, that you’ll find both at CBD hawker stall Eminent Thai Cuisine & Seafood, well, kind of. It recently reopened on June 22 in a kopitiam on Philip Street and serves no-frills Thai classics, like kao kaa moo (braised pork leg) and pad kra pow (pork stir-fried with basil).

It’s fronted by a pair of professional Singaporean muay Thai fighters, 32-year-old Spencer Tay (left in pic) and 28-year-old Ng Lai Hock (right) whose mum is Thai. They also co-own a muay Thai gym in Bugis. The dishes are cooked using recipes taught to Spencer by Thai boxers during training trips to Thailand that began when he was 14.
