With you…

We had just finished breakfast that morning when I received an sms from my friend/ex-classmate, Robert, inviting me to join him for breakfast. He was with another ex-classmate of ours, Michael, who was home from Perth to attend a wedding. I could not make it as I had to go to my mum’s house to spend the morning with her and keep her company.

Later I got a call from Robert and he asked us to join them for lunch here. My girl and the mum was not all that keen as they were still very full from breakfast and besides, they had plans to do some baking that afternoon. In the end, I went on my own.

Michael had never had the chance to try the Thai starter, the miang kam

…before so Robert ordered that and we also had the som tam, the papaya salad…

Robert insisted on ordering the Thai-style fried fish…

…that he enjoys very much and yes, it was really very good but that was so so so huge! I cannot imagine ordering that for my small family of three – we will never be able to finish that, of that I’m quite sure…but believe it or not, we did manage to do that between the four of us that afternoon and actually, I was the one who ate most of it – it was so good that I just could not stop.

It sure was nice getting to see Michael again and as always, we had a great time chatting away and catching up with one another’s lives. We met again that night for dinner but that will be in the next post.

The next day, my girl wanted to treat us to this very nice, family-oriented movie so off we went to the trioplex together. I drove to the top of the complex thinking that we could go some place for lunch before the movie but it was full so we came all the way down again. I was in no mood to drive around in search of a vacant parking space and since they did not go with me to enjoy the awesome Thai lunch I had the previous day, I took them there. Parking here is always a breeze – one can park in the available spaces around the hotel and the restaurant or in the vicinity of the now-closed-down Ngiu Kee building right next door.

We shared the lovely Thai beef soup noodles (RM15.90)…

…that went so well with the special chili dip…

…that came with it.

They were so very generous with the meat, big steak-light slices, so very tender and juicy, and there was so much of it and as always, the servings here are all rather big so that would have been quite enough for the three of us to share but initially, my girl was not keen on it and wanted her favourite here, the pad Thai (RM16.90)…

…so I ordered that for her, the small.

When she tried the beef noodles, she liked it so much and had her fair share of it. That, of course, was not a problem – there was more than enough to go round and there was quite a lot of the pad Thai to share too even though it was supposed to be small…

After enjoying our sumptuous lunch, we went back to the trioplex and I drove to the top of the building again and thankfully, I did manage to get a parking space this time and off we went to enjoy the very delightful movie together.

FLAVOURS THAI KITCHEN is located on the ground floor of the ORCHID HOTEL, along Brooke Drive at its junction with Jalan Tunku Osman. You can use its main entrance at the back of the hotel building (facing Brooke Drive) or go through the lobby past the reception desk if you are using its hotel entrance.
