Once a while you find a culinary gem that everything seemed right and in this case Thai cuisine.
Thai cuisine is no stranger in the Penang eating scenes but this little kitchen by the popular market on the island seemed to dish out fantastic authentic Thai food
We were invited to sample a variety of delicious home cooked Thai food. All together there are more than 30 dishes on the platter and menu. A choice that can satisfy any person's desire. All the food is well balanced in terms of taste and sight
My personal favourites are:-
- Thai Otak Otak (Hor Mok)
- Jack Fruit with sticky rice (Khoa Niao Kha Noon)
- Fresh mango with sticky rice (Khoa Niao Ma Muang)
- Thai dessert with coconut milk and water chesnut (Tub Thim Krob)
- Thai chicken rice (Khao Mun Gai)
- Thai Laksa (Khao Nom Chin)
- Thai Fried Rice (Khao Yam)
- Tom Yam Goong
- Red syrup (Nam Daeng) with sago
- Green syrup (Nam Kaew) with sago
I like the Otak because the texture is one of the smoothest I have ever tasted (true skill). The Jackfruit and Mango goes well with the sticky rice. Their Thai Laksa is very unique and creamy. You can really taste the fresh ingredients used. Thai fried rice is just so pretty to look at, wonderful of colours of the ingredients is just too good to mix it up. And the Tom Yam Goong is one of the best I have ever tasted.
I can't wait to go back for dinner. They have a totally diffrent menu for dinner
Overall the restaurant offers a wide variety of authentic Thai home cooked dishes at reasonable price. It is clean and offers relaxed indoor and outdoor seating. Not surprising as the Matriarch of the kitchen is of Thai decent. I recommend my readers to try it
