Browsing

Sometimes, hunting nice food is when you look at some pictures that you like and you go for it. So often that I hear this modern Thai dining serve pretty good food is Fa Ying by Rama V. I get to know this place when I saw my friend insta it while they are enjoying their meal there. Then not long after that see them Insta again. Then it got me very curious about the place and food and its a recommended place by them.

Since my friends birthday is around the corner, therefore I suggest this nice restaurant for birthday dinner.

fa ying (1)

Get to know that t Fa Ying means “princess” in Thai and by that you would nod your head once you know that it is connected. That is how I feel I am connected when I first saw this place. 😀

fa ying (2)

At night this whole restaurant look pretty comfy with nice lighting and set up with bar in the middle of Fa Ying by Rama V.

fa ying (3)

Sitting outside at night without wind can be like in sauna . . .

Starting to love this place when I they have happy hour buy 1 free 1 all day long. AT times before movie will drop by for a drink.

fa ying (8)

Offering in this Fa Ying by Rama V seems pretty good as I have asked my friend the list what is the must have item and she recommended a few.

fa ying (9)

This is something new to me as Watermelon salad is something light and simple to start off with, sweet and burst with watermelon juices, light mint taste and goat cheeze is added to make the taste more kick. @ RM 12

fa ying (10)

In salad range, I was asked not to miss out their signature Pamelo Salad with Prawns @ RM16, mint leaves are added along, light herbs taste in between and the pamelo is sweet sour base that pair with the ingredient very well.

fa ying (11)

Thai Fish Cake @ RM 12

fa ying (12)

It will never be complete if you step into a Thai restaurant without ordering Tom Yum, the version here is rather mild and serve along with 2 slices of toast bread. Bread is good but to pair with thai soup its a bit weird.

fa ying (13)

Pinapple Fried Rice is pretty good as fried to fragrance and pineapple taste did not overpower the rice.

fa ying (14)

All ala carte order comes with this bowl of thai fragrant rice and a bow of thai salad. Thai salad is popular among the rest as the sour base and spicy end makes it nice.

fa ying (15)

Follow by our mild spicy Curry Duck. Duck meat is not too hard yet cook to perfection that the gravy is slightly thicker and coated well on the duck meat. Love this dish.

fa ying (16)

Phad Thai is like one of my favourite dish. Will try to order if available or not to full. Thin noodles here are pretty good, and did not fried too dry, slightly  moist to my liking. Serve along with peanuts and bean sprout to stir all together along.

fa ying (17)

Prawn Speghetti

fa ying (18)

fa ying (19)

Clearly Roasted duck sandwich @ RM20++

fa ying (20)

Is the clear winner for the night as it was gone within seconds. Smack in between 2 slices of toast Ciabatta  with combination of duck, vegetables and sauces is just nice. Fa Ying by Rama V

fa ying (22)

Here is the biday girl and her cakes.

fa ying (23)

Of course my usual order placement of cakes will be from Fatboybakes.blogspot.com

fa ying (24)

Lastly, for the celebration and we were told their signature cocktail that we shall not miss is Marquessa @ RM100, uniquely served in a huge fishbowl as the mixture of the drink  filled with dragon fruit, cucumber, burnt orange peel, Absolute Blue, white wine, soda and 7-Up. Nice to drink and can at least be share with 5-6 friends.  If you are a cocktail lover, then this is one of the item you shall not miss..

For a pork free restaurant to come out with this flavorful dish, I must say I am impress. Total bill for the night came out RM650. Not bad for a recommendation.

One of the place that I recently visit certainly make it a hidden gem around the area. It was a surprise to me that, in that area actually hid one nice restaurant, although I went to KLPAC for some local stage show a few times. Neither did I know there is actually that exist here. KLPAC is actually like a new dimension as you enter the guard house with tress flanking on both side that will lead you to a abandon house smack right in the middle on the narrow road. Just follow the flow you will reach to another end of the park is Samira by Asian Terrace.

SAmira (1)

Here we are today hunting for Thai Food that is located directly opposite KLPAC and you will see this red brick wall standing tall with bamboo tress hidden behind it.

SAmira (2)

Right here in the park, this is where the restaurant is hidden in that you actually sit in it, you will get to enjoy the view of the park and pond.

SAmira (3)

Getting into the restaurant is pretty tricky, as you will be entering a little maze and you will reach this wooden bridge with  a huge pond next to it.

SAmira (4)

As follow the flow of the wooden bridge, you will reach the main area of the restaurant.

SAmira (5)

The ambiance of the place is truely amazing, that you got transported back to another world. Found out that the previous owner runs Japanese restaurant and it was taken over that now serve Thai Cuisine.

SAmira (6)

Surely it is a nice place to have quiet and peaceful dinner with family and friends, or would make it a nice place for your special occasions.

SAmira (7)

or you can be seated outside chill on the wooden bench and table.

SAmira (8)

overlook the pond and park.

SAmira (9)

SAmira (10)

In Thai food range is hard for me not to order this few drinks – Ginger and Lemongrass, Lemongrass and Basil drink.

SAmira (11)

The first serving caught me by surprise, as it the first time I came accross Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad @ RM20, fried to perfection that it is very crispy as you bite you can still hear the cracking sound. Easily to be peel off , eat along with mango salad gives you another new bursting flavor. – Recommended!

SAmira (12)

Vietnamese Yam Salad is another new dish to me, that hardly come across a Thai restaurant serve such a unique entree dish. Yam was fried to crisp shower with some lime juice, fish sauce and sugar. Sourly is not just the taste as to make your taste bud to wake up up,  chilli padi is added in to make it sourly spicy.

SAmira (13)

Another one of my favourite entry as I just love sour dish to kick start with. Huge juicy prawns top along with pamelo, as you take one full bite of it, mouth had been burst with sourish juicy pamelo follow by spiciness at the end. Thai Pomelo Salad is something that you must not miss for as start.  RM 24 REcommended~

SAmira (14)

Tom Yam Goong is one of a thai soup that you must not miss too. If this soup is serve pippin hot then it would have been a perfect dish. serve along with seafood – prawns, squid and fish fillets. @ RM30

SAmira (15)

Grilled Norwegian Salmon With Basil Leaf is something that I truely enjoy, as I do not really love basil taste on my food, yet they are able to tone it done and blend well with the gravy giving it a perfect mix of balance with the thick sauce that cook with mix herb.

SAmira (16)

Southern Thai Masaman Curry With Beef @ RM 28 will be a perfect pair with white rice.  Gravy is thick yet slightly sweet in spicy curry, and rich with spices that cooked with tender beef slices is just delicious.

SAmira (17)

Traditional Thai Tom Kha with Chicken

SAmira (18)

SAmira (19)

Steamed Squid with Chilli and Lime Juice @ RM 28 – juicy squid brought to steam first then drench in sourish soup. I love the soup and chewy squid with my rice.

SAmira (20)

Grilled Fish Fillet in Banana Leaf (Otak-Otak) @ RM 32

SAmira (21)

When this dish was serve River Prawns with Lemongrass Sauce, we were like ‘wahhhhhh’ as it was set on the table it feels like the prawn got rape as it is tremendous huge prawn that was place on the table. I had 3 of this that making it particularly like I am having the whole plate already as prawns were very fresh, with roe and the lemongrass sauce @ RM35

SAmira (22)

Pineapple Fried Rice that smells very fragrant, cannot deny it is with pineapples, and spices akin to kunyit @ RM18

SAmira (23)

Do not ask me why, as I just love Phad Thai Noodle with Prawn and Egg @ RM16 and I would say its one of the recommended dish that make it well fried with ‘wok hei’ and mix all ingredient in, just comes to my liking.

SAmira (24)

Pineapple Lamb in Coconut Sauce is another new dish to me. Mild in coconut taste with slightly thick gravy yet hint of pinapple sour sweet taste is detected after that. I just place this whole bowl infront of me. – Recommended

SAmira (25)

Spicy Chicken With Chef’s Special Sauce @ RM 22. Chicken is well prepared with outer layer fried to crips with meat is soft. It is very    fragrant with spices in thick coconut milk. Another star for the night.

SAmira (26)

Pan Fried Banana with Ice Cream @ RM12

Mango Sticky Rice @ RM 18, that mango is fragrantly sweet and by dipping a bit of coconut gravy with sticky rice and eat along all in one bite gives you the satisfaction.

At the end of the meal, all of us were satisfied with the  amazing dish that this restaurant have to offer as I find the food price is decently price along on the quality that we had, surely we will return again for more. It will be another recommended Thai Restaurant in my list.

Although I don really come to Desa Park City, it certainly is one of a nice neighborhood place to chill in. Everything seems so calm and peaceful, with people jogging around, playing tai chi, taking their dogs for a stroll and just feel nice to be here. – Soi Thai Restaurant

[UPdate – NO Longer in Operation] 

Not only that, as Desa Park City also have a little eatery place that smack right in the middle of the field and host quite a number of restaurant. One of the restaurant that I previously went that serve pretty nice food is a Italian restaurant right at the corner. Now, dropping by here again is a new Thai restaurant that open its door since last year October and heard quite good feedback on it.

soi thai (1)

Soi Thai Restaurant its like a hidden gem in this neighborhood that serve nice authentic Thai Food. I got lost when I first look for this restaurant as it always appears in my mind that all restaurant are only on ground floor, as this restaurant is located on the first floor.

soi thai (2)

Soi Thai offer very pleasent dining experience with simple interior and their staff is very helpful

soi thai (3)

soi thai (4)

soi thai (5)

Price wise are very reasonable and there are quite a range to choose from.

soi thai (6)

soi thai (8)

Pandan Leaf and Lemon Grass Drink, Thai Ice Tea,

soi thai (13)

Started off with usual Thai dining with kerabu, Green Papaya Salad with Dried Shrimp and Peanuts. I just love the taste of it, sourish which is good for stomach before heading to main course and its quite spicy with little chili padi being  mix along, and a bit of salty cuttle fish just blend the taste well.

soi thai (12)

Soi Thai Combo

This is a combination of pandan chicken, fish cake, thai wantan and croquette platter.

soi thai (17)

One thing to hunt for in this plate is the Pandan chicken. Well marinated and fried to perfection as the meat is ginger pale yellowish with a bit hard crust on the edge and its soft yet aromatic.

soi thai (9)

We ended up order another Thai Style Otak-otak as it is so good that each of us took 2. Steam to its softness like near eating jelly to my likings, and some prefer it to be harden abit. For me, I am okay with either version.

soi thai (10)

Thai Green Curry Chicken pairs well with rice.

soi thai (11)

Steamed Siakap with Lime and Chili Sauce sourish with lime base and we drank it like soup. Spicy yet its good till my tears nearly drip.

soi thai (14)

Something that you must not miss is their Signature Fire Pot with Seafood Tom Yam (4 to 5 persons). By the smells of it already thrill us to drink in asap with its sourish spicy smell that poke thru our nose is something that we can wait to put our hands on. To our delight, the taste is as good as what we smell. Spicy yet the soup is filled with seafood taste and sourish after taste. Just a perfect pot of Tomyam. – REcommended~

soi thai (15)

This is something worth to recommend Thai Red Curry Roasted Duck mild in curry taste, with duck meat is quite soft.

soi thai (16)

According to my friend, this is a very rare receipi that not many restaurant in Klang Valley able to cook this dish – Choo Chee Deep Fried Fish, is actually one of a signature dish in the restaurant. Deep fried fish shower with mild spicy flavor and skin is crispy with soft meat filling. – REcommended

soi thai (18)

Pineapple Fried Rice

soi thai (19)

Thai Style Kicap prawns

soi thai (20)

One of my favourite dish that I would not miss to try out is Authentic Pad Thai. Turns out to be good as the glass noodle is thin and small which it is suppose to be and fried with ‘wok hei’ covered with omelet. Mix all up is exactly the taste I have in Bangkok.  Just that Malaysia version do not add sugar. Recommended

How many of you do you actually crave for Thai food? Chok Dee Thai Restaurant. I am one of them without denying I am a fan of thai food because of the spicy and sour taste in their food. Last round when I went to Bangkok with my friend we seriously had like 1 day 6 meals trip that suppose to be a shopping trip that I had transform it into makan trip. 😀

chok Dee Thai (1)

In Penang to find nice restaurant that serve Thai food is actually not many and I can tell you that Chok Dee Thai is one of them. Many of  my friends love this restaurant as I often see them check in foursquare in this outlet. To me, its quite hidden actually as I have pass Burmah Road many times without realizing actually there is a restaurant until last round I was back in Penang, we have a small little makan gathering with my best friend which there are 13 of us.. The usual 2 or 3 will only turn out. That doesnt bother me, as long as I can order many food to eat. 😀

chok Dee Thai (2)

This shop serve Pork! nice ahh~ How can you enjoy Thai Food without pork dishes. On the downside, I find that the pricing is a bit more expensive compare to many restaurants available out there.

chok Dee Thai (3)

This restaurant is not huge but its longish that can accomote limited people in the outlet, best to advice that you head there early if not you have to wait for first round of dinner crowd to get over then only its your turn. We reach early and its quite empty, as the place just got filled within 20 minutes. My best friend know the owner as he is one of the regular there.

chok Dee Thai (4)

Love the decorations of the outlet that resembles some Thai influence even the cute doll also welcome you, Savadeekap~

chok Dee Thai (5)

chok Dee Thai (6)

For a classic drink in Thai Restaurant I usually wont miss their Lemon Grass, indeed its refreshing and the lemon grass taste is quite solid, just as I prefer.

chok Dee Thai (7)

For me, to try out a Thai Restaurant Tomyam I would always go for their clear soup base which is the authentic taste from Thai not the fiery red tomyam we usually have which is only Malaysian style. Clear Chicken Tom Yam did not fail to impress us as Collen drink every sip and keep praising every sip of it. Its a bit spicy after taste, and more towards sour that is why most girl will love it. By far I think this is one of the best clear soup I have come across.  RM19

chok Dee Thai (8)

Green Curry Chicken that is cook to perfection that the curry is not too watery nor thick that just perfect to go along with rice. A few basil leaves to make the taste a bit more kick and a bit creamy taste is just as expected.  RM12

chok Dee Thai (9)

My heng tai Tatt keep asking me lai lai, please feature me, so he take a dish and ask me to snap. Thai Seafood Otak-otak @ RM16

chok Dee Thai (10)

Another dish that I wont miss is the Otak-Otak that one thing we got deceive was it look huge but in the middle the have like a mini bowl to make it stood round. It was cook till the curry well coated with the seafood, a bit creamy sweet and sour, hint of strong basil taste some might love it some do not. To me it was just nice.

chok Dee Thai (11)

This is what Tatt said must have. Their Pork Knuckle which cook in Thai Style. The meat cook till soft and juicy that fork can easily remove the skin and the meat. The fat layers in between, to eat along with the sauce and rice just make it a superb dish~

chok Dee Thai (12)

Since we have clear soup base, as for fish we head for their signature spicy steam fish. All of us just love the soup base, spicy enough yet sour after that. Colleen again keep drinking the soup non stop.

chok Dee Thai (13)

Another dish highly recommended by Tatt is Claypot Prawn with Glass Noodles @ RM45.00. I would personally recommend this too.

chok Dee Thai (14)

Mango Sticky Rice

chok Dee Thai (15)

Thap Thim Krop @ RM4

Overall of this restaurant certainly this Thai Restaurant stood out better in taste and more towards Thai on sour and spiciness. If you are craving for nice Thai food, no doubt that I would recommend this restaurant, just be prepare to pay a bit more as I would say, compare to KL , just cant be compared.

Business Hr : 11.30am – 2.30pm, 6.30pm – 9.30pm

Closed on Monday.

In Malaysia, we have many types of Kopitiam, ranging from Hainanese, our traditional weekend joint nearby a market or at your favourite shop most of the time. I come across to most kopitiam have their own style of cooking especially those more to homecook style. Surisit The Thai Kopitiam is the latest joint that offer thai authentic cuisine that start to operate in this industry that hidden right in the heart of Taman Tun Dr.Ismail which is hidden right behind CIMB back area. .

You can find alot of Thai authentic food out there, with one good thing about this place is that you cant find many Thai Food that serve PORK and this is one I come across that makes us keen on it.

Surisit (1)

The kopitiam is easily spotted as its the only kopitiam that operate with pale orange colour lighting and wooden plants and wooden chairs right outside the shop.

Surisit (5)

If you travel to Thai, a few types of chili will be placed on the table to suits you or to spice you up.

Surisit (7)

Soya CinCau @ RM 7.90

Surisit (8)

Start off our first dish with Pucuk Paku Yam Pla or kerabu pucuk paku @ RM14.90/15.90. I find this dish is very appetizing or maybe I love sour taste to start off with, not only that, this dish is served cold and once start eating eat, I cant stop as it taste sour, little spicy and hint of coconut. – Recommended~

Surisit (9)

Next dish that is served that steal our hearts away instantly is this very fragrant Mun Thod Gapi @ RM16.90/24.90 or crispy fried pork served with their own home made chili. It was good, with its crispy skin, and the texture of pork is soft and evenly seperated out with some slices are filled with fats that some of my friends like it, and I love mine with just some fats. This plate was gone instantly. .  Recommended~ 

Surisit (10)

Kheng Som Pla @ RM32.90 known as  sour orange curry fish with vegetables. Its another dish that not to be miss when dine in a Thai restaurant or usually you would either order this or the fried fish. For soupy fans, you might enjoy this too as the fish is fried first instead of steam then bath with the soup. The crust of it is crispy, then eat along with the sour spicy soup. The soup is pretty additive to me tho . .

Surisit (14)

Pla Neung Prik Ma-Nao @ RM32.90 is another dish that must look out as the fish is deep fried then sprinkle with fine chili, lime, garlic and spring onion on top of it make it a bit challenging to eat as I cant really take spicy. This fish was evenly distributed with some people like to eat the fins, heads as it is very cripsy and fragrant yet best part of all, the fish is fresh as the meat is soft also must eat along with gravy on top.

Surisit (11)

Thai style fried egg omelette or Cha Om @ RM9.90

Surisit (12)

Kao Klut Gapi @ RM14.90/18.90 or belacan fried rice that serve along with sweetened pork

Surisit (13)

Then you just  mix everything in the plate  . . .. The combination of all flavours makes it extra kick, with cili padi, yet you get to taste sour lime as I squeeze both lime on top and young mango, then sweetened pork gravy.

Surisit (15)

We always would prefer go traditional as original tomyam is in clear soup just that malaysians had made it to fiery red style tom yam and we still stick to trandtional ones, comes this Tomyam Ka Moo @ RM25.90. The soup is good as it was cook along with pork and was very sourish just that it was not spicy as we expected, then after that we ask the person, they said this is the standard taste and we can request it to be spicier which we would next round~

Surisit (16)

Torb Tim Krob @ RM5.90 

Surisit (17)

So far,  Mango Pulut (Glutinous Rice with Mango) is offer in many Thai restaurant, this is quite good as the mango is very fresh, soft sweet and juicy, then eat along with soft sticky rice which top with coconut milk that makes it frangrant to eat along with the sweet mango @ RM8.90

Definitely this will be our another Thai restaurant to be in our hit list and we will definately will come back for more, as the chef actually allow us to order things off from the menu or just tell him a budget and he will prepare good authentic thai food for us. Just that need to book 3 days in advance. If you are looking for good thai food, this is one to hunt for. .  Recommended~

I guess there is too much food to choose when you came by in a mall, not until my best friend Kheng came down to KL with his wife then they tried on first round and told me the next day during yam cha session, Bok, got one restaurant served very nice Thai food – Just Thai , you must go try. . . then I said, kia, we go again second round and to my surpise he agree. . .

*note: missing out some price and dish name (lost receipt) 😀

For me, I did not know that there are such a nice Thai restaurant located inside 1-Utama New Wing even though I walk passby 1000 times and don even bother to take a peek until I was brought here.

Just Thai which is located at the Lower Ground Floor which is directly opposite Speedy Video shop that offer great ambiance of dining with more contemporary style instead of Thai deco.

Just Thai with their quote Hospitality with a heart . . You judge yourself ..

Prize in this restaurant are pretty decent with their portion and taste.

 

Thai iced tea @ RM9

So what chu waiting for. . lets take the fork n spoon and lets eat. . .

Simple stir fried veggie was fried very aromatic and the gravy is just perfect to go along with rice.

Thai Otak-Otak which I hardly miss when comes to Thai Food, with seafood along with finely chopped coconut meat, with the gravy coated on each piece of the seafood and I kinda like it too . . .

Signature FirePot with Tomyam (4 pax)  is the star of the night. Quite spicy, and sour as me and my friends like it to be. Recommended~

One of the dish I seldom order locally because not many places can fried this very good as it cook along with basil leave till a bit dry in gravy, that makes it one of my favourite and do not know what struck me, I order this and turns out to be not bad. . .

Green Curry Chicken as up to my expectation with creammy type of curry and chicken meat was soft and eggplant did not overcook @ RM 15

Water Chestnut with Coconut Milk is not bad, a bit too sweet for me. .

Mango sticky rice with steam the rice first and mango is nice just that find the coconut dressing a bit weird in taste.

Overall, we had enjoyable time at this restaurant. . .which is my friends favourite restaurant.
