jaya one


One of a new revamp places in Jaya One that is currently housing a few F&B under one roof. Tommy Thongchai in The Square, Jaya One is one of their latest outlet to be operating in the area. Offering a cool unique Thai Fusion food with a twist. I would say its a clever cooking and flavour combination from all around the world. Not only that, also known as a Thai Gastro bar, hip and chic place to get your reasonable cocktail average at RM 25.

I believe all of you must be curious like me why the place is name Tommy ThongChai? Who is this person or does he exist? Well, half of it is actually from a famous Thai Singer known as ThongChai, a Thai Scottish singer and actor known as Bird ThongChai. A fan of him, the owner use the back name and add in an english name on the front, hence Tommy Thongcai.

A place with its modern interior that certainly makes it a perfect hang out places with friends, especially with celebrations is even better.

On that night itself, we get to sample quite an array of food range and all of them are their signature dishes.

Lammeeya had been establish as one of a household name in KL many years back or even when I was in college time. When comes to KL version Lam Mee, I thought of them. Now, they have new menu that rolling out and also introducing some new home-cook food style with super food of healthy vegetable that they specifically pick from a farm. Curry Fish head being one of the latest signature.

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (2)

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (3)

Curry Fish Head @ RM 98 (medium). A pot of pippin hot clay pot fish head is indeed a pot that you will be looking at during rainy season. A mixture of spices that pump into the claypot that give you the taste of a mixture of nyonya and Penang style combine. Slightly thick in gravy yet hint of spices at the after taste. Curry is not spicy as they are more on the fragrant side.

Best of all, can convert into mini steamboat after you are done. So it is kinda 2 in 1 pot. (scroll down for more)

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (5)

Very fresh fish that they are using and easily about 6 pieces.

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (6)

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (7)

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (8)

This is their super food Bio-Dynamic Vegetable – Pea Sprout with Egg @ RM 16.90. A simple dish that pack with flavour to my liking. Vegetable certainly taste different from what we always have. Texture and taste is also diff itself. – recommended

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (11)

Even their Four Season Bean with Chinese Olive does not taste bitter like what I usually have. Freshness of it and a little hint of sweetness at the end is quite unique. @ RM 15.90

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (9)

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (13)

Ginger Wine Omelette is one of my fvourite simple dish from this outlet. A dish that I would always order.

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (14)

Onion Oil Tofu is steam, drench with their own special soy sauce and best of all with pork lard. Yumz!

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (10)

When we are done with the curry, we convert it into a mini steamboat by ordering extra steamboat ingredient. They add in their house signature broth and do be aware that the soup is unlimited refill, however not the Curry in the claypot. The more you add, the flavour will be diluted.

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (12)

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (15)

House special mix pork ball.

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (16)

Crispy fried fish skin

Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (17)


Xiao Lao Wang Hotpot (18)

This new location not only house Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot, as the group owners have decided to house another 2 more brands under one roof, bringing along Bay 31 and Lameeya.

Love their new design for this outlet that bring classic to modern environment with minimalist.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (3)

One of their private dining area.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (4)

Lets kick start with Bay 31 as it is a new born concept from this group where coffee and tea is their highlight. Will soon bringing you some breakfast classic toast set. My personal favorite is their Royal Milk Tea Cold @ RM6,  Imperial Coffee @ RM 6.50 which is a special blend Arabica Coffee Beans instead of coffee powder from a typical kopiiam and of course their Lime Lime Juice @ RM5. One of a great drink for thirst quenching and also goes well with steamboat.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (5)

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (6)

Hainan Chicken Chop with mashed potato @ RM14.80 will get you some classic Hainanese pork chop

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (7)

Handmade Thin Bamboo Egg Noodle @ RM8.90 (Medium)

This is one of a heart stealer where the egg noodles were really springy. Meat marination gives a nice decent mouthful of flavour with their sauce and do add in their home made chilli to give you an extra kick. However some food lovers might find it sauce is too thick. We are good with it.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (8)

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (9)

Handmade Bamboo Egg Noodle with Sesame Sauce (Cold) @ RM9.90

This is a Chinese version of cold soba. First time having this as the cold egg noodle is placed on top of an ice bath to keep it cold enough. You can either pick the noodle dip onto the bowl for the seasome dressing or pour it on top and mix it all.

changed of location did not change their menu. Their menu still offer the same variety as they used to be and now they have added one more signature soup base.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (13)

Under Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot, their condiments still remains no.1 that offers steamboat lovers with lots of condiments and you are free to mix any of the flavour at your own liking.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (14)

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (16)

Pickled Cabbage Pork Belly Soup is their latest eddtion of soup base and it is my personal recommendation if you love sour vegetable soup base. @ RM48.90  It is a cabbage that had added salt and to pickle the cabbage (for 1 month) in a tight container huge glass jug. Love the soup aroma as it give you the hint of sour vegetable soup, wit mild hint of saltiness yet mix along with long hours of cooking pure pork bone broth, gives you a nice balance of aroma and taste in the soup.

It is advisable to add one time of another round of soup. When it hits third round, the soup will be diluted or left only with pork bone base soup. You can order add on for the pickled cabbage to add on, as what we did below.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (18)

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (17)

We did order fresh fish and were advise to add in the fish head into the soup to cook along, to add in the sweetness of fresh fish head in it.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (19)

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (20)

As some of our friends do not like pickled cabbage, so we oredered another pot which is their signature Pork Stomach Chicken soup @ RM42.90. Punch with flavour, as the soup base clarity is nil. Hint of pepper and love the aroma of sweet pork bone in it. Classic and good.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (21)

There are some fresh seafood for you to choose from as live red snapper @ RM7/100g is worth to consider to order. They will fried the fish head for you and can either eat it or add it into the soup as we do. Fish meat indeed its fresh.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (22)

If you are out of idea to order, they do have sets menu for you to pick from as it ranges from RM50.90 to RM60.90 (one of the sets as above that comes with fresh Tiger Prawns)

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (23)


Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (24)

I had a better versions before, however their HKG Bean Curd Roll @ RM13.90 is quite simliar to local favourites. Just dip this peices 3-6 secondes depending on the types of softness you like. Best to start off with 3 seconds first.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (25)

This is my version of sauce that I have created, sorry I do not have recipe for this as I created base on my own preference.

Xiao Lau Wang Hotpot (26)

Other ingredients that is worth to order, such as their layered tofu, fresh pork balls, fish balls or even their Sanbanto Berkshire Pork Belly (Small – RM16.90 / Large – RM28.90)

This is one of a decent place for hotpot especially their soup base.

Streat Thai, have both good and bad reviews along the way, where I certainly understand that and seeing how they grow from time to time and where they are today which is more well managed over their previous encounter. Some of you might not know as Streat Thai concept is like a specializes Thai food court that house authentic Thai street hawker hail all the way from Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket and a few others.

Good thing in this place where you do not need to line up to order as they have some one to take order from you. Their interior build up resembles Thai street food where actually most of the chef behind the stalls are the actual owner in Thailand that operates in the streets. Some of them close their shop in their hometown and operate in Streat Thai to bring you their authentic Thai recipe to our local taste bud.

Good thing is that they have alot of regular Thai customers as they are very happy over their favourite street food are now being serve in Klang valley. The slight different where different region have different taste for a good example like our Asam laksa, varies to Kelantan Laksa, Curry laksa in different region. Their taste change accordingly to their region too.

Street Thai (7)


Street Thai (8)

Besides that, they have some Thai street snacks for you to buy too.

Street Thai (9)

Street Thai (10)

Now with more demanding customers, they have recently just launch a new menu with some interesting dish such as Thai Porridge.

Street Thai (11)

Street Thai (12)

My 3 usual items that I would typically order is these three drinks. Signature Thai Milk Tea @ RM5.90, Fresh Coconut Smoothie @ RM8.90 and of course Thai Ice Coffee. 

Street Thai (13)

My usual Thai Salad is the classic version where it is filled with pickled veggie, mango, peanuts, fresh cherry tomatoes and others, however for their improvise version, they have add in fresh salmon to for taste enhancement. IT is a dish that you might love or hate it as the fish meat texture is quite different where the taste and texture is registering a new dish in our head.

Street Thai (14)

One of the latest hit that make a big wave in Streets of Bangkok now is this hidden jewel in Thailand that originally operates in a small town. Since a discovery from a Singapore blogger on this street home cook dish, it had created a new street eats for many food lovers.

Street Thai (15)

Street Thai (16)

Tomyum Creamy Porridge with seafood and mince Chicken @ RM 21.90

Street Thai (17)

Street Thai (18)

For both their porridge, they have quite a huge taste different where seafood do give you the immediate similarity like you are eating tomyum noodle but in a creamy porridge version. It is as good as what you see. Hint of spiciness, fragrant of some herbs and sourish end make me keep eating on it.

Do stir well before eating to give a well balance of mix in ingredients and taste.

Street Thai (19)

Street Thai (20)

Street Thai Tomyum Noodle Dry @ RM 15.90

Street Thai (21)

There are 5 types of noodles for you to choose from as they usually would recommend on their original noodle. Where the texture is slightly chewy and goie after soak it with soup or gravy.

Street Thai (22)

For soup base, this is one of my favourite. Braised Beef Noodles @ RM11.90. Just as I had it in the streets of Bangkok where soup is pungent, flavourful and topped with beef brisket – tender and juicy. To make it out, It had been simmered for 10-hour-simmered. To eat along like how others locals it, add on some, chili powder, a bit of chilli special sauce and sugar to make it extra kick.

Street Thai (23)

Street Thai (24)

During weekend when they have live band, Fried Chicken Wings @ RM17.90 [6 per serving] were quite generous in portion. Well marinated, fried to perfection as they have hint of bitter sourness of lime. This is a perfect match with Singha Beer that they do serve.

Street Thai (25)

The Coconut Ice Cream with Sticky Rice @ RM10.90 is a dessert might would  consider to choose toe end your meal.

Street Thai (26)

Red Ruby with Coconut Milk @ RM6.90

Street Thai (27)


Street Thai (28)

My verdict is, they have improve alot since from day one how they operated. Certainly a place worth to visit if you are looking for some local Thai Authentic Street food in PJ.
