Absolute Thai Street Food @ MIdvalley Megamall

 

Currently in Thailand when drafting this particular post just makes it worst to have to describe my experience with Absolute Thai street food in Midvalley megamall. If I must put it bluntly, then the simplest and most accurate description is probably localised. All our order, including the drink, of which one of it is sold as the Thai coconut (RM 7), totally fail to live up to their reputation. Absolute Thai has been serving street food with comfortable indoor seating, mostly inside malls, but the eatery still qualifies as street food given the array of most popular and renown Thai street dishes. One of which is the Thai Chicken Porridge (RM 11.90) and the Beef Noodle (RM 15.90). Which turns out would be a delight to most Malaysians. Seasoning and taste profile are closely tied to the local palate so for those eager to satisfy the Thai street food cravings, I’d recommend skipping this one.

Lemon Grass (RM 4.90) drink weirdly has a wedge of lime and this one totally reminded me of our local limau ais. Safest order is probably the omelette but take note it isn’t a sharing portion.

In Thailand, even if you don’t know where to look, there’s still a high chance to stumble upon treasure. While Bangkok’s street food already claiming their throne to be legendary, with critics and bloggers from all over the world dropping reviews and praises, there is indeed something magical about their cuisine that seemed familiar to most of us in Malaysia but yet still never fails to create a little bit of surprises each time. I am hoping that there will be more Thai restaurants in Klang Valley that could give us the same surprises.

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

 

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

 

The decor might be simple and even maybe borderline close to sloppy, but comfort dining is rest assured. Don’t expect contemporary and bold fusion but do prep yourself for some authentic Thai fire and superb cooking including stalwarts like tomyam and padthai. They have always been one of the biggest native crowd pullers and quite rightly so; the establishment imports Thai products and occasionally sells some really interesting street snack that is much loved by the Thai native community on top of the delicious cooking.

 

1.Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

 

The menu is pared down to classics of Thai authentic flavours, all well prepared in both set and ala carte dishes for communal eating. Prices weren’t cheap thou but solo dinning is easy with their set serving that comes with rice and accompanied with a little bit of vegetables. I am happy it isn’t white rice (sometimes I like bluffing myself to some extent, haha. Don’t judge me). Fried Basil Leave with Pork (RM 10), Pork Leg with Rice (RM 10), as well as Noodle in Thickened Soup (RM 7) not only looks terrific but decently portioned as well. Add on the BBQ stuff. Grilled Pork Neck (RM 4) was delicious tender and juicy and best to go with some beer.

Fish is available at a standard pricing of plus-minus RM 40 and it’s highly doubted that it was a popular choice. They are not spotted on any tables amidst the crowded hungry customers. Soups and Tomyam made appearance at few tables so I tried and while comforting, it was but at the same time really warming you up when especially seated in the low ceiling and badly ventilated shoplot. Prepare boxes of quality tissue paper.

The narrow dining room is often packed and be prepared to share a table with stranger anytime during peak hour but it remains a cut above several local Thai establishments within the vicinity.

Pim’s & the Rama at Aman Suria Damansara

Pim’s &the Rama at Aman Suria Damansara

 

Talk about a pure satisfaction of tomyam and thai fare: Pim’s &the Rama at Aman Suria must be the one that comes into mind when it comes to mixes tongue-basting Thai soup in a Korean hot pot lookalike serving. Unlike conventional Thai restaurants, their first operating outlet in Klang was already renewed in such that the interior of the place catching on to trendy designs. This second outlet has wowed neighbourhood patrons with both it’s ingenuity, authenticity (think Thai staple with Chang Beers) and a good value of money. Oh did I mentioned the live acoustic music on Fridays and Saturdays?

 

As is the case in many of Klang Valley’s most authentic Thai restaurants, the cooking here is largely from the region of northern Thailand – including salad, accompanied by anything of pork. The food menu features plenty of well-known Thai dishes, with Green Curry Chicken (RM 28) alongside Thai Papaya Salad (RM 18), Pad Thai Noodles Prawn (RM 16.50) and juicy Pork dishes- Thai Grilled Pork Neck (RM 19), BBQ Pork Sticks – 3pcs (RM 12), Spicy Hot-Basil Leaf Minced Pork Rice with Fried Egg (RM 14.90) and Thai Pork Leg on Rice (RM 15.90).

You’ll also find a collection of southern Thai dishes such Thai Otah Otah Seafood (RM 25.50). Fish dishes are available as well. Fresh Siakiap Seamed with Chili & Lime Soup (RM 66) and Fresh Boneless Deepfried Siakiap Fish with Thai Sweet & Sour Sauce (RM 68). All very lovely to go with white rice.

The menu carries a long list of Thai dishes but something else is brimming with innovative confidence. Unashamedly fusing hotpot and Thai with the likes of fresh seafood and thick tomyam soup and lining the surface of the pot with crayfish, prawns, scallops, squids, mussels and some mushroom; and then topped with boiled egg with that runny and custardy yolk, Pim’s Super Seafood Tom Yum Pot (RM 88) reminds me of the Korean army hot pot. And, this one is sensational with icy cold beer.

If not this huge seafood tomyum pot? Then go for the popular pink soup. Yen Ta Fo (RM 39) represent hot pot with fishballs and tofu pieces and is another dish perfect for anyone who loves hot pot.

Tiger Lily Thai Restaurant @ Melawati Mall

 

Dishes at the Tiger Lily are designed for Thai food lover with menu built around familiar street food as well as some signatures of Thailand flavour. Sample some of the usual Thai dishes, along with stalwarts like red rubbies and pad thai – all stylishly presented. Among what was sampled at the Foodieville are delicious steam fish with lime and pad thai plus the Lemon grass chicken.

 

1.Tiger Lily Thai Restaurant @ Melawati Mall

 

And with their beautifully painted dining room, the décor may be slinky and contemporary, but is serving a good value, including a lovely selection for both ala carte and communal dining. Must have is the steam fish. It is marvelously comprehensive with a blend of all sour, spicy, salty, sweet delicious clear broth with the plump white fillet submerging in it.

I thought their rendition of Thai ice tea was a little sweet to my liking but it did got me thinking of those I had during my recent trip to Bangkok.

Thai Tuk Tuk @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

 

There is so much more than just green curry when it comes to Thai Tuk Tuk in Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika) and this here is a good option to explore regional specialties and the classic pick of most Thai restaurants. This chain restaurant puts a unique spin when it comes to their vibrant set up of the dining room.

 

1.Thai Tuk Tuk @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

 

There is nothing innovative for sure but we are looking at some collection of halal Thai dishes designed for sharing with familiar seafood options like Tomyum Seafood (RM 43.90 large),Stir fried Kailan with salted fish (RM 16.90), andStir Fried Prawns with petai (RM 19.90). The ordinary looking dishes are nothing neither amusing nor whimsical, rather it was plenty alike staples that usually appears regularly at any Thai restaurants expect that this one is in a more casual and contemporary feel. Don’t expect to be wowed by the dishes or impeccable service because dining is very casual here at Tuk Tuk.

5.Thai Tuk Tuk @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

 

Of course the menu is sufficiently extensive and that kind of offering is good for diners. It pulls together the region’s popular dishes so we can easily orderHat Yai fried chicken with crispy onion (RM 15.90) and Green Curry chicken (RM 18.90) to go with white rice (RM 2.50), or have some of those breakfast dishes that goes equally as fabulous as any other dishes- Kai Krata (RM 10.90). Despite being a simple fried egg with sausages, it was tasty and comforting to add some protein to the meal.

8.Thai Tuk Tuk @ Solaris Dutamas (outside Publika)

 

The desserts and refreshing beverages are a little something for consideration, or perhaps more than just an afterthought with that price tag. We had Lemon Grass Juice (RM 5.90), Thai iced milk tea (RM 5.50), Thai pink milk tea (RM 5.50), Ice cream Thai Boran (RM 16.90) and Red Ruby with coconut (RM 10.90) which was okay; just not memorable. I would really skip the ice cream thou.

Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner with guest Chef Jib and Chef Chu from Thailand at Doubletree Hilton KL

 

Double Tree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur brought authentic Thai flavours to us when they bring guest chef from Conrad Bangkok and Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok to dish up the rich flavours of Thai cuisine this March and April. Featuring head Thai Chef of Conrad Bangkok, Inthira “Chef Jib” Phumpaijitr and Cluster Sous Chef at both Hilton and Double Tree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok, Puttipong “Chef Chu” Tinkratok, diners can expect a robust culinary flavour along with the showcase of fantastic fruits and vegetables carving skills to shine from signature dishes of Thai spread.

This Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Makan Kitchen highlights Thai specialty dishes such as Grilled Black Angus Thai Beef Salad, River Prawn Tom Yam Kung, Raw Tiger Prawn with Premium Thai Dip, Steamed Fish with Fragrant Lime Broth, Chokanan Mango Sticky rice and more. with over 80 dishes of buffet spread for all you can eat, diners will be expecting a more intense taste of Thai flavours that are exquisitely presented for RM 135 nett per person. Starting with the renowned appetisers, we tasted some real chrunchy young papaya tossed with dried shrimps and roasted peanut that’s drizzled with chili-lime dressing for that tang, Som Tam has always been my favourite sort of kick-start meal. However, it did not outshine the Gung Che Num Pa– the raw tiger prawns served fresh on ice with premium Thai dip.

 

4.Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Doubletree Hilton KL
5.Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Doubletree Hilton KL

 

The Thai culinary that contribute to my love for the cuisine is attributed by perfect combo in the meal sequence- soup before the mains. Serving decently sized River Prawn Tom Yam Gung, every sip is filled with intensive and pack flavours of prawn roe and is well balanced with infusion of lemon grass and kaffir lime. Did I mention the prawns were really fresh too?

 

6.Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Doubletree Hilton KL

 

Main serves a steamed seabass with fragrant lime broth, <Pla Neung Manao; some beautifully laid slices of grilled black angus Thai beef salad ,Nam Tok; delicious Thai green curry chicken Gang Kiew Wan Gai and the perfectly stir fried barks of morning glory with chili and shrimp paste, Rau Muong Xao Mam Tom. Food is impressive when ingredients are fresh and when serving things like fishes, our catch seemed to complement the dish well.

 

7.Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Doubletree Hilton KL
8.Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Doubletree Hilton KL

 

To satisfy the thirst for sweet finishing, the dessert bar is ready to make them into artisanal with the presentation so the delicate pieces of dessert serving are surely pleasant to the eye and the camera. Alas, it was peculiar to most of our palate that is tuned to mainly sweet in the Tub Tim Krob instead of this version of slight salty in between those crushed ice and coconut milk. Good thing the Sangkaya Fukthong (pumpkin custard) is there to redeemed this platter, but my vote goes to the Khao Nieaw Mamuang– the mango sticky rice.

These dishes serving were arranged prior and would be available on their buffet spread as their signature Thai dishes. Also, if anybody is interested with a 5 course Thai fusion wine dinner (RM 168 nett) happening this 24th March 2017 or Thai-Italian Tapas and Beer (RM 168 nett) at Tosca, or even a cocktail pairing dinner(RM 125 nett) at Cellar Door, feel free to visit their website for more information.
