We found ourselves walking among the backstreets near Taipei City Hall the other night, and stumbled into this Thai place. Often places around this area are pricey, so when we saw the price we were skeptical. But…
Inside is spacious and plenty of light. It looked clean – so far, so good.
The menu is vast, but in English ^
Green Papaya Salad
I always like ordering this in Thai restaurants. Although it may look a bit insipid in colour, the flavours usually deliver. You’re to expect salty, sour, spicy, crunchy, sweet, nutty flavours in every mouthful. It’s a right old mix in the mouth.
Pork Satay skewers
Satay for days. If we come back, I am ordering two portions of this. Succulent pork, good flavours on the skewers even without the dips. However, that spicy dip hits the money, too.
Crispy fried chicken
Yessss. If you’re into chicken and spicy things then this is a must. Expect spice in every mouthful, with delicious crispy chicken following it. Not at all greasy, very nicely flavoured and fresh tasting. You can’t go wrong ordering this.
Ever seen a shrimp cake this thick?
Good flavours in this shrimp cake. It’s nice and juicy inside, and paired with the sweet sauce – winning.
You should get some rice, to settle the salty, sour and spicy flavours throughout the meal. But, you must absolutely try this secret tip I am about to give you. Order the satay and enjoy it for what it is, BUT, make sure you douse some of that peanutty curry onto your rice – you’re welcome in advance.
Coconut cream dessert
Something sweet to finish on. Some lychee involved here, as well as a bunch of traditionally Thai dessert additions. The coconut cream is lovely, and the sago underneath is nice for a change, too.
