Philosophy of Drinking aka P.O.D Bistro
POD Bistro Review is to share with you why this is likely the best Thai food you’ll get on East Coast and East Coast Road at POD Bistro. Yet again, the Siglap Food scene is blossoming.
They are surrounded by some stiff competition, such as Iza, Izakaya Bar & Restaurant, Siglap, and Jag’s Gastro Bar but it’s packed out every single night at POD Bistro, and I mean EVERY night. The beverages are of incredible value from beers, wines, and bottles of spirits and then augmented with this incredible Thai food, including street food cooked by the resident Thai Chef. Yes, you can’t get any more authentic. Plus the crew looking after you are just superb, so friendly and attentive it makes the whole experience delightful.
I have been coming here for years since moving to Siglap some 8-9 years ago now. A circle of drinking buddies called it Prince of Darkness because were always get in trouble with our wives, but the correct is Philosophy of Drinking. I like both for POD Bistro Review.
POD Bistro is a chill-out place located in Siglap on the East Coast area of Singapore…. 697 D East Coast Road, Singapore, Singapore 459060 to be exact. Nestled along a strip of other cool bars, restaurants, and hangouts such as George’s, Jag’s, BarRoom, and Malthouse, but this is focused on POD Bistro Review,
Did you see our Singapore Food Blog of Bars along East Coast Road; Best Bars on the East Coast Road 2022? We sort of didn’t make it to Siglap and I have been trying to add bar by bar. Well, let’s just say at POD you can get a pint, and a proper pint, for $8+. That puts it up there in the top few cheapest bars on the East Coast Road, and then add this wonderfully authentic Thai food to the mix. It’s a must-try!!!
They are also massive fans of the English Premier League (EPL) and they’ll have all the games on throughout the night for you to watch and many other sports like live boxing and rugby too.
What did we eat tonight at POD Bistro - check this POD Bistro Review?
Thai Pork Jowl (Kor Moo Yang) – is one of the very best pork dishes I have ever had, and seriously up there with the best pork jowl.
You bite this and it ‘snaps’ whilst still having the fatness of jowl, then the savoury smacks you, and then try a dip in that homemade dipping sauce. Heavenly is the world. This is my absolute favourite dish in this POD Bistro Review, it is a stunner.
Mango Sticky Rice (Kao Niao Mamuang) – Wifey went hard on this one and it was a beauty. The rice was savoury, and soft, with little hints of coconut cream then KAPOW sweet mango. It was just divine. Best on the island she said.

Let's hear from POD Bistro
Our conclusions of POD Bistro Siglap in our little POD Bistro Review, and their incredible authentic Thai food and Thai street food
Maurice and Judy, it was just so wonderful to dine with you this evening at POD Bistro Siglap. It took us flashing back to trips in Thailand with toes in the sand, cold beers, warm sea breezes, eclectic tunes, and incredible food. It just happens that we were sat on East Coast Road in Siglap. Loved it POD Bistro Siglap.
We got to meet the Thai Chef and she was a legend, despite only having 30 seconds to say hello as she was so busy churning out her amazing food to so many others in POD Bistro this night.
If you live East Coast it’s a no-brainer. Make sure you ring and book, especially if you want al fresco dining and drinks. You don’t want to arrive all excited to eat this incredible fair to then be turned away at the door. It’s a must-try folks. I am just gutted it took so long for me and the Wifey to have a date night here and get some of this food inside us.
