This place had developed so much sincs the last time I was here two years ago. This place was nearby Chang massage place, which we visited several times as it was near our hotel and a 60minute foot massage only cost RM30!
We walked around emporium and decided to have dinner at Kalpapruek (local thai food that had space for us).
Like A LOT of space. The decor of the place did feel rather modern comtemporary which on first impression, I would not think of it as a Thai restaurant.
As it was my first Thai meal for the night, Green Curry…one bowl please! One thing that I had deduced…no matter we ate our Thai food, as long as it is within the boundaries of their homeland, the taste and quality of its food can only be good..or very good..or very, very good.
I’d say..this was considered very good!
Next stop, Tom Yam Kung definitely! Although the pot was small in size, it was still capable of keeping 4 mid size prawns inside. This was the creamy version. Not bad I’d say.
Next next stop….Phad Thai! So far every phad thai I’d tried in the various locations, there had never been similar in taste and looks. This was slightly darker with rather good wok hei. It was fries along with sliced pork and pork liver. The liver part was a little too much for me. Got a little sickened after a few mouthfuls.
The papaya salad wasn’t bad, but just a little overly nutty that it felt like I was scooping nuts out rather than salad.
The unique thing about Thailand is that theie version of orange juice is squeezed from mandarin oranges! A little sour, a little sweet, and a little heaty too! Yums but cannot drink too much otherwise I’d get sore throat haha.
Total damage per pax was about RM40, not bad considering the amount of foos ordered…amazingly, we cleared everything off! Pants…tightening….! 🙁
