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.

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.

That is how the name Chackri Palace Royal Thai Cuisine came about.

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.

Penang as my hometown, neither did I know that, I actually made another great discovery that thanks to Lingzie that brought us here. I have always known that Kajang Satay which is very famous to folks in KL and Selangor but I just got to know that Ah Basri Satay is actually very famous with local crowd especially during lunch hours as its nearby the industrail zone.
In the afternoon you can expect this place to be full house even though its far away from town and nearby the industrail zone but nevertheless, its a great discovery.

Ah Basri

This shop actually is a combination of what the 1Malaysia concepts truely are. Behind this shop, there are actually a few partners which is Chinese, Malay and Indian owner that had come out with this concept which I am really proud of.

Ah Basri (2)

and yes, they are actually moving to a new premises which is bigger, new concept, air condition and brought the satay to another whole new level. You can expect more variety of satay choices and what is that, is for you to find out at their new branch as when the tauke told us about it, I was already hoping to try that new flavour.

Ah Basri (3)

Their special pit area of bbq’ing their satay.

Ah Basri (4)

Turning the satay under the warm charcoal that making sure it does not burn the meat and add on with their own special oil to bring up the taste and make the look of it, yummy, delicious and cant wait to salivate.

Ah Basri (5)

You can expect quite a huge range of satay compare to the normal hawker stall on the road or kopitiam. You can expect such meat as chicken, beef, lamb, deer, ostrich, horse, rabbit, duck, turkey, squid, prawn and fish. It also offers normal, black pepper and also tom yam flavoured satay.
and the price would be :Original Chicken RM1, Tomyam Chicken RM1.20, Black Pepper Chicken RM1.20, Original Beef RM1.40, Original Lamb RM1.40, Horse RM2.00, Squid RM2.50 PrawnRM3.00 Cow Stomach RM1.50.

Ah Basri (7)

The most important of all in satay is the gravy of it, filled with nice thick peanut sauce that rich with flavour and add on some of their chili to bring up the taste of the gravy is truly aromatic to dip along with the satay.

Lamb & Tomyam Satay

Chicken Satay

Ah Basri (11)

Squid Satay

Ah Basri (12)

As the satay is very flavourful, and we requested to ask Sunny to be our very own embassador that he is enjoying every bite of his satay. My most prefered which is Lamb and Black Pepper Satay which had been marinated and bbq very perfectly, juicy and soft yet aromatic and besides that, do not look down on this place that the waiter and waitress here had been profesionally train and they have excelent customer service.
With them moving to their new location, I would not mind visit their new stall for the very next round and their satay stick is actually big in size.

Last trip of back to Penang, Seh Poh Kio the first thing when I reach back after dumping all my luaguage back at home and went to pick up my friend, heading to Seh Poh Kio for supper. There are very limited places in Penang to hunt for Chinese food during at night after 12am. I was craving for burger that night around 1.30am.

The business of this stall its good at most of the time, depends on your luck when you dropping by that you have to wait long or wait for a while. Luckily on that night I did not wait for long as I was the 3rd person only.

The stall owner is the one leg kick person. Cook, wrap, and sell

My order was ‘Chicken Burger Special’ (Pg version means with Cheese and egg) as I love the version here as one of the best, well cook that preserve the taste of the slice of the chicken meat and well wrap around with the ngam ngam cook egg and top with a slice of cheese and cover with a layer of mayonnaise. RM4 if not mistaken.

Besides this stall that I usually enjoy eating from the thai hawker stall behind it was the ‘Fried Tomyam Maggie Mee’ a style of its own, not too spicy yet soury and filled with mini seafood is a taste that I am missing but on that night, the taste had change not as nice as it used to be. Still not bad but not as craving taste already. RM5
