Got to be there…

We went out for dinner with my cousin and her hubby from the UK that night before they left town early the next morning and of course, it got to be that Thai restaurant here that I frequent and have blogged about quite a lot.

We had the steamed lokan

…which were rather small but they loved that very much and also, their creamy seafood tom yam

…my girl’s favourite.

They enjoyed the pad Thai

…as well and they specifically mentioned that they enjoyed the exotic tastes of the coriander leaves and the Chinese parsley/celery and what not in the seafood glass noodles salad…

My cousin liked the miang kam

…but it wasn’t quite what was to the hubby’s liking. Literally translated as a “one bite wrap”, these are supposed to be starters but I’ve noticed that, for some reason, it has always been served last. Obviously they would need more time to chop all the condiments into those tiny bits, I suppose.

Dinner came up to over RM135.00, around £27 or £7 each and my cousin insisted on picking up the tab this time. Thank you so much, Eleanor, for the dinner treat.

Mango was not in season and we could not have the Thai mango sticky rice for dessert so after dinner, we adjourned to this sparkling new place

…just opened a few days before Chinese New Year…

…by the guy who was running this place previously for coffee…

…and cakes.

It was way too dark to take any decently nice photographs…

…so I guess I will have to drop by again in broad daylight in order that I can have some snapshots that will do this place some justice.
