Spicy Thai – Thai Cafe: Traditional Mookata And Thai Tze Char
There is something about having Thai cuisine during weekends. I noticed that I will be suggesting Thai cuisine half the time for family dinners and even with my friends, especially weekends. Wanted somewhere closer to home, we managed to chance upon Spicy Thai – Thai Cafe which is next to the basketball association.
Non air-conditioned, but thankfully it was rather cooling that evening.
Menu offered here serves an extensive array of Thai cuisine done in the traditional way. Special attention is given when choosing ingredients for their food, even to the extent of importing Tea leaves from Thailand for their Thai Ice Tea.
Very often Thai Ice Tea ($1.8) serves as a benchmark for the Thai eatery which I visit and the one offered here passed the test! Gao, smooth and had a nice fragrance.
First time trying Deep Fried Kang Kong ($10). Crunchy in texture, it will make it as a fantastic snack!
Green Curry ($8), Phad Thai ($6), Chicken Omelete ($8), Pandan Chicken, Mango Salad, Spicy Sea Bass in Lemon Soup ($35) and Deep Fried Pork Knuckle ($28) were part of the our orders.
Among the dishes, the Phad Thai was outstanding based on its slightly sweetened and evenly fried.
Fresh Sea Bass was nicely steamed and soaked in the appetizing lemon soup.
However, the pork knuckle was a failure as it was over fried, leaving the meat tough and dry.
Overall, it was an enjoyable dinner, but something just doesn’t click with me. Given a choice to dine from my collection of Thai eateries, Spicy Thai – Thai Cafe won’t be the first in mind.
