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…

…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.

  1. Food looks good… the name miang kam so funny. Horny kam or horny mandarin orange? Heehehe

    Naughty! Naughty! You miang miang keladi leh? 😀

  2. Though I am not much into Thai food, but looking at what you had makes me drool. They all looks so appetising.

    I enjoy these Thai, Indonesian, Indian and Malay cuisines so much that these days, I find Chinese rather boring, unexciting and I get pissed off when it is too expensive – I would be thinking that with that kind of money, I should have gone to one of those places, so much nicer and value for money.

  3. Nice Thai dinner treat. Oooh. The lokan. Yummy.

    I don’t think I would like miang jam, not so into eating raw leaves like that. Haha.

    The daun kadok is tasteless or it has none that I can detect. The snack is nice because the condiments added and the sauce, especially. Anyway, I’m sure you eat lettuce or salad leaves raw – these days, they use those to wrap roast pork belly or kim chi pork and eat. Very nice! I’m ok now with the raw cabbage in the ayam penyet set but I still leave the long beans by the side, not fond of those raw.

  4. I never used to like Thai food until a little restaurant opened up near my house. Somehow, this place appealed to my tastebuds.

    I’ve always loved Thai but I’ve had some disappointments at some places – this one is very much to our liking, very good authentic Thai chefs so we would want to drop by time and time again.

  5. Thai food looks great, love those seafood

    Yes, we love eating here, just that it is not all that cheap so we’d usually reserve for special occasions.

  6. Thai for me anytime! I still haven’t got a chance to try miang kam.

    Come on over! I’ll treat you to the miang kam and the nicest dishes on their menu here! 😉

  7. All the Thai dishes look good… now salivating as I scrolled… so yummmmsss!

    In Johore already? No plans to hop over, they have direct flights, Senai to Sibu, very convenient – quick, check the air fares…everyone can fly.

  8. Looking at all this food in the middle of the night is really not a good thing. Making me hungry even though i already eat my heart out just now during barbeque. Hahaha. I made my mind to skip the rest of the entry for me to read tomorrow. Have a nice day!

    Haven’t had a barbecue for ages. Not all that keen on having on here, not in our hot tropical weather.

  9. Mango…LOVE it…but they are pricey here! The cheapest I have seen over the past year is about 2 bucks per fruit…sigh…I have been having to settle for frozen chunks instead when I am able to grab them!

    2 bucks only? That’s around RM8, so cheap! Not easy to come by here and the last one I bought was RM12.00, 3 bucks but it was HUGE, like a papaya, very very nice. Problem here is they may have pests inside but that’s a good sign, no pesticides used – we will just have to cut away those parts no longer suitable for consumption.

  10. Those types of coffee is so Kiwi! its a common sight here, I guess you know

    It’s the young people thing these days, not quite what I’m into and it is so so so expensive.
