One evening, my brother and I had dinner at Restoran Sri Thai. Yup, he played Uber driver to his sister who had no transport that day hee..hee...
I have been wanting to visit Sri Thai for a long time ever since it opened (last year?). Somehow I never got the chance.
Stepping inside, the decor was somewhat drab and old looking. In fact you can't see the inside of the restaurant from outside owing to the dark tinted glass. That sort of made the place feel unwelcoming.
We checked the menu online and had some idea what to order. For drinks, I asked for water and the server suggested a lemongrass drink (RM4.50). My brother ordered the longan but the kitchen gave him iced Chinese tea (RM2.80) instead. Bah! No, he did not complain.
Our first order was the Tom Yam with prawns (RM22.90).
|This was after the server served us two bowls.|
It was spicy and tangy and we had to be careful to avoid the cili padi. There were lots in there.
Our next order was the Belachan Beef (RM25.90). It came to the table looking so unspectacular.
In spite of its unappetizing looks, it was delicious with Thai basil to give it that wonderful aroma.
Next up was the Mango Kerabu (RM16.90).
It's our "must order" at any Thai restaurant.
We enjoyed this kerabu very much.
Our last dish was the 3 Spice Fish (RM48.00) which is the popular "Siakap 3 Rasa".
One whole fish deep fried and doused with a delicious sauce.
And whoa! The amount of cili padi in this dish was astounding.
Our tongues were on fire! Woohoo!!
At the end of our meal, I asked my brother if he wanted desserts. His answer was predictable hee..hee...
My brother chose the Sago (RM7.50) while I went for the Water Chestnut (RM8.50).
These two desserts helped put out the fire and we were very much relieved.
Total damage was RM159.16 (after service charge and GST) for a very satisfying meal. Yes, we will be back!
