Sawadeeka~ I'm still very much in love in Thai food ever since my trip to BKK in Feb and I am truely glad that we have a new Thai Tze Char stall opened right here in our homeland. This stall, as mentioned in the vegetarian society, is operated by a Thai local and the food on the menu reminds me of the happy days I have in BKK. So now that we have one here, I can stop going to BKK for a while. I sincerely hope to create more awareness on this so that the stall can sustain its business. Thanks to gwennie once again for accompanying me to try out! I even brought the menu home. See below for the scanned version.
The dishes available reminds of Kwan Imm JAE Vegetarian restaurant which I have posted earlier in BKK. In my personal opinion, one of the best ways to see if the chef is up to the mark is to order the common dish such as Tom Yum Soup and Pad Thai. True enough, these did not disappoint.
It is definitely authentic and brings me great satisfaction. In Thai, Tom Yum Koong actually refers to Hot and Sour Prawn soup. In the vegetarian version, they have included straw mushrooms, shumeiji mushrooms as well as some mock prawns. Soup is really sour and spicy. If you have a weak stomach, you may need to ask them to cut down on the chili mix.
Pad Thai $5
Pad Thai is not supposed to be spicy, but when mixed with the thai chili powder, I almost couldnt feel my lips after eating the entire dish. I love pad thai as it has a very unique taste of sweet and sourness. It is basically the traditional thai rice noodle cooked with tamarind sauce. The original version is served with raw beansprouts and cabbage. In this version, the beansprouts are fried together. I guess its more suitable for the local market. The ingredients comprises of some fried beancurd,mock squids,mock meat which I cannot identify and plentiful of beansprouts. It tastes perfect after mixing with the lime, crushed peanuts and chili powder. If you are not into chili padi, do not mix in the chili powder as it is really very spicy. Note: This should be a vegan version as it does not contain eggs.
This is the stall front, located in a coffeeshop just beside the famous he ji bao coffeeshop in Aljunid. There are only 2 stalls in this coffeeshop. Other than the stir fried and soup dishes, they too serve steamboat, also known as suki pot. Its a pity that the serving is too much for us, and I could not try the highly recommended papaya salad. I would love to come here more often in the next couple of weeks!
Opening Hours: Till 11 daily. Closed on Mondays
