- Is the prawn expired??? (see, nv heard before prawn can expire leh) or,
- ‘Wah! that vege is older than my great-grandfather leh!’
- Or even, ‘holy crap! this crab is crab or not one??? Like taufu!'
anyways, that's not the point. i definitely dont mind if the place doesnt have nice view and stuff. i aim only at the food. We used to go there 6 years back or perhaps more when we still resided in Pandan Indah. it's either my taste in food has gone another level up or the food quality has gone down, cuz honestly, the food is so-so only.
Let's start off with the 'yao za guai'-like appetizer. one small stall selling this within the restaurant compound, we used to order whenever we ate there last time, so this time, nostalgically, we did the same, in search of the old satisfaction we used to get, hoping the same plate of 'yao za guai' would still be able to lure our taste bud to keep wanting for more.
but dunno why, somehow the taste is different. and it's not that nice anymore. oh, and this has to be served with some kaya. hav to dip in the kaya otherwise it will be tasteless.
ok, so we thought maybe that stall changed the seller, or changed the ingredient. so no comment.
as it turns out, nothing is ever the same again.
Thai is famous for sweet kaki ayam. this one is still ok, not too bad.
Then we had one big plate of fried rice. it's rather tasteless, and the prawns they put in, it's so NOT fresh! kinda destroy the overall taste of the rice.
then this plate of vege, my god! the corn-like thing, it's so damn hard! i could hardly chew it!
then we ordered fried sotong, this one, so-so only.
here comes the tomyam soup. this is the only thing i like.
then some crabs. i didnt taste this, but my dad and mum and sis did. it's so not fresh!
the fish, ok-ok.
then we had glass noddle. the taste is the same like the sweet kaki ayam. and sorry for this pic, this is actually the leftover. no mood to take pic anymore after tasting all the food.
frankly, i wont discourage anyone from trying, different ppl hav different preference, maybe u will like it cuz from what i see, the customers are quite alot. maybe nowadays ppl prefer not-fresh.
only the tomyam soup and fish were sapu habis, the rest, esp the crab, we barely touched. and my sis who happened to eat the crab, she got stomachache the next day!
went all the way there in high hope and came back in disappointments and grunts, and we were stuck in the traffic on the way back somemore. this makan experience, so not worth it.
rating: 5.5/10. i give another 0.5 cuz the serving per dish is quite fast.
i say, 'dont come dont come'.
