We started off with some cocktails of course! Love when they use ingredients traditionally used for the cuisine being served, makes the flavours flow on really nicely.
|Golden Siam - Fresh golden pineapple, guava nectar, |
freshly squeezed lime juice, Havana Club
Especial and Amaretto
|Chai Yen - Panama passionfruit, apricot nectar, Wyborowa vodka and French peach liqueur|
And on to the fooooood!
|Deep Fried Mini Spring Rolls|
|Goong Ma Kham - Deep fried king prawns with tamarind sauce, served on a bed of steamed Chinese broccoli|
|Spicy Fried Rice - Fried rice with garlic, chilli and Thai holy basil|
|Pad Prik Pao Crispy Pork Belly - Stir fried crispy pork belly wok tossed with Spice I am chilli jam, cherry tomatoes|
My fav was of course the Pork Belly! So crispy, so sweet, so yuuum. I pretty much finished this off my self =P. It is their most famous dish I believe! They have a few pork belly dishes on the menu.
|Som Tum (Green Papaya Salad) - Green papaya with dried shrimp peanuts, and chilli|
|Chicken Pad See Ew - Stir fried flat rice noodle with Chinese broccoli, egg, garlic, chicken and dark soy sauce|
|Basil Pad Kra Prao - Stir fried chilli, mince and Thai holy basil (Usually made without minced meat, but with bamboo shoots and green beans)|
The Pad Kra Prao had to be my least favourite dish, it was waaaaaay too salty for me. But the flavour combination worked, so it would have been great if they had eased up on the salt.
|Fried Rice With Crab Meat - Fried rice with egg, crab meat, garlic and spring onion|
The restaurant is pretty nice inside as well, all dimly lit and nicely decorated and furnished. The staff were pretty nice too. It did take a while for the food to come out, but the taste compensated for that I reckon. I wanna go back just for some Pork Belly!
