thai fusion food


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.

Have any of you heard about Erawan restaurant? I have known the name for ages with quite a lot of buzz on it. Till date I have yet pay a visit. Oh well, one of their latest new concept is located at Mid Valley, level 3 opposite Daiso is Tiffin’s by Chef Korn.

Among the drinks which is available, Tomyum Mojito drink is the most eye catching as the flavour is quite interesting, that top with a slice of chilli on the top.

Grilled Pork Neck is one of a recommended dish that served with steamed glutinous rice @ RM23.80. Something simple and direct..

Tiffin (9)

Papaya Salad

Tiffin (10)

Next is Fire Balls @ RM17.80. The name itself do lift up the expectation as, deep fried minced pork that mixed with ground roasted rice, dried chili, vegetables and some spices to make it aromatic.

Boxing Chicken

Tiffin’s Pink Ocean Noodles serve with glass noodles is rather interesting. @ RM 23.80 Unique taste of soup and seafood combination do have sweet end taste , then their portion is quite generous as it serve with 3 sides for a set along with 4 condiments.

For classic thai, I think this is not bad as Beef Ball Noodles serve along with side dishes in the tiffin carrier @ RM25.80 which do allow me to connect the taste back to Bangkok. Serve in pippin hot soup, simple and light in taste.

As like those classic eatery in the country then add those 4 condiments at your own preference.

For others which is the ala cart version, you get to choose 3 dishes from the list to make it complete stack of Tiffin Carrier.  I did not take the sides as I took the mains only with Daddy’s Stewed Pork top in the list @ RM25.80, and Green Curry Chicken which is totally a bomb. Love the spiciness level and slightly creamy taste of it. (highly recommended) 

Tiffin (21)

Classic dish would be the Tom Yum soup that is serve in clear soup base which is available with either chicken or seafood. Ended up choosing seafood version as the ingredients are pretty generous.

The trick here is you get to choose which level of spiciness you are able to go numb. We chose the medium which is just enough for us and it would be better if another level up. 😀

Tiffin (22)

For desserts, there are a few things for you to go after which is their home made ice cream  @ RM6.80/scoop. Thai Cendul and Thai Warm Sago.

I ended mine with their Thai Ice coffee which is pretty good to my liking.

Tiffin (25)

If you are looking for some thai sauces, they do sell a few of them. Worth checking out.  I would say Their clear soup tomyum, thai green curry and Tiffin Pink Ocean noodle is worth to give it a go.
