Celadon

One of the better outlets in the SEA Group family of mall-friendly Thai restaurants, which also includes BSC's Busaba, 1 Utama's Good Evening Bangkok & Mid Valley's Flying Chillies.

Prawns Part I: Tom yam soup _ sourish, spicy & swamped with prawns & mussels.

Prawns Part II: Pomelo salad, with plenty of juicy pulp complemented somewhat unusually by battered prawns, squid, roasted coconut & ground peanuts.

Prawns Part III: Northern Thai prawn curry with pineapples. Delicious, even without the distinctive flavors of the typical Thai green & red curries. Tastes like it could be Malaysian.

Prawn-free interlude: Grilled strip loin on hot plate with northern Thai sauce. Can't complain; the well-marinated beef is the furthest thing from bland & chewy.

Prawns Part IV: Sizzling seafood with Thai herbs. Bonus point: Celadon's food displays few apparent signs of MSG.

Prawns Part V: Pineapple fried rice, intriguingly topped with chicken floss (besides the prawns, naturally) for an enjoyable chewiness.

A fair range of wine is available _ not something to take for granted at a Thai eatery.

  1. Omg definitely first!! :p

    Oh this post was very prawny! I'm not a big fan of prawn even though I do eat them. And, also, I don't think I have had Thai food. Although that prawn dish in the pineapple looks very familiar to me

  2. Rad: oooo, Thai food is pretty popular in KL. If there are 50 Indonesian eateries here, then there must be 300 Thai ones! I'm not a major fan of thai food though ... It's a once-a-month kinda thing for me. Spiciness turns me off =)

  4. Missyblurkit: oh yeah, the seats feel strange at first. it's like we're resting our backs on human faces :D heh, but the prawniness of the meal was a complete coincidence. wasn't planned at all! =) desserts here seem run-of-the-mill. i think there's the usual mango with sticky rice & maybe tab tim krob :D
