After seeing some pics that my buddy posted on Instagram from this place, I had to give it a try.
My wife and I started with a bunch of appetizers. We tried a trio of meaty Thai dips that came with an assortment of veggies, some pork meatballs wrapped in fried noodles, and a pork jowl salad. Everything was great here, but from those three, if I had to choose, the pork jowls were my favorite. We destroyed all of it though.
Next up was the crab fried rice.
Wow. They dropped about $25 worth of steakhouse quality lump crab meat right on top of this delicious and light-yet-flavorful fried rice. Awesome. This is a must if you are looking for a “starch.”
Then we had the Thai style fried chicken.
I was blown away by this. The flavors, the crispy skin, the juicy-ness.. It was all just working. Get this! It was my favorite dish of the night.
And of course I had to try the strip steak with tamarind sauce.
This came out on a hot skillet and the aroma was nuts.
For $34 this is a steal of a value, and it was tender as hell – cooked perfectly to medium rare. I must admit, I was expecting a shitty experience here. I was dead wrong. Later I learned that this meat is from Strassburger, so it should have been no surprise that it was tender and delicious. 8/10.
For dessert we had a nice fruit plate and a big scoop of coconut pandan ice cream.
Great way to end a great meal. I definitely recommend this place. Go give it a shot!
