How much are you willing to spend for hawker food? RM 1? RM 10? Or RM 100? Normally when come to food, money is secondary to me. I used to spend RM 100 or more in ONE day, just for varieties of roadside food along Kaoshan Road, Thailand.
I know many decided to get Thai girlfriends to save some money in Thai food, some decided to hire Thai maid to cook for them but as for me, I decided to hunt for nice Thai Restaurant. As much as I love Thai food, please don’t expect me to eat same thing over and over again right?
Rak Thai is not just a Thai Restaurant that serves delicious Thai delicacies but sell a lot of Thai daily products such as my favorite tom yam instant noodle, Thai chili sauce and chili paste. What impressed me is most is the waiters/waitresses here who speaks good Thai.
Duh, speak Thai? Like that also want to impress. I tell you, most of the waiters/waitresses in Malaysia Thai restaurants do not speak Thai at all beside Sawadeekap. If you don’t believe it, try to speak a few words and see their priceless facial expression.
If you follow my blog before, I spent about RM 124 in Chakri Palace in Malaysia ?? Guess how much I am planning to spend here? The set for 2-3 RM 53.90+ attracts me. Correction.. The set for 4 RM 89.90+ really attracts me but unfortunately I don’t have 4 stomachs like cow.
I only have one stomach and one “hump at the front” (don’t ask me what is “hump at the front”! So, reluctantly have to ordered the set for 2-3
Start with my favorite, Tom Yam Gai as appetizer. This is good to stimulate your taste buds before they go to “spicy shock”. Follow by so called “Green Curry Chicken” (I might be color blind but it looks yellow to me ) and Stir-Fried Kangkung.
If you can take the “not so spicy” Tom Yam, I bet you will survive with all the other dishes. I got to know that a friend of mine will turn into tomato red if he takes spicy food. Cute isn’t it? To me, I don’t turn red but I will sweat like PIG but hey, all these food are marvelously great. So, I don’t mind turning into PIG.
The Crispy Fried Fish Lemongrass Dressing is very unique. This is totally different as compare to most of Fried Fish with Thai sauce (which means, fried the fish with readymade Thai sauce from bottle). I believe this is the authentic way of preparing the Thai Style Fried Fish.
More importantly, it taste really good and sometimes I will crave for this dish.
Not to worry about drinks, you will be served with Iced Lemongrass Drink. If you love the fragrant and taste of lemon grass, I bet you will like this drink very much.
Again, I have made a right decision not to order set for 4 as I hardly finish all the dishes here. The portion is really big and I guess my bottomless stomach is not bottomless afterall.
