As we scanned the menu, I worried that my tomyam craving may have gotten the better of me. The items were pricier than the average Thai haunts, like Maa Roy Thai or Sri Sawadee on Sri Bahari Road. And we have been feeling poor for a while, and cheap cheap eats are all we're comfortable paying for. We decided we'd go easy and keep to two dishes, since we did down a moreish breakfast just a couple of hours ago.
Green chicken curry. Tender pieces of chicken thigh meat in a thick, nutty gravy. Total awesomeness. I have always been a breast person but there is so much goodness I cannot deny in the use of thigh meat in curries.
Seafood Tomyam. This serving for two came with a price tag of RM22 but it was filled to the brim with FOUR huge ass prawns, fish and baby octopus. We were paying for quality and I declared, after slurping a few spoonfuls of the fiery liquid, that I would happily foot the bill! Fat Tulip's sweat glands went apeshit as we worked our way to the bottom of the pot. It was intense!
We were stuffed and sated but when we saw they were serving small bowls of Tab Thim Grob for only RM1, our cheap receptors went to work and we each had one bowl. Plenty of water chestnut and chunky jackfruit strips, no complaints whatsoever.
I was still a little taken aback when the bill came up to RM43 and found that they charged heftily for rice and the lovely ulam appetizer. Quality does come with a price so I would probably come back only when my wallet's fatter.
