This stylish new restaurant does Thai with a difference, inserting a pork-tinged spin on familiar classics in a distinctive setting inspired by the Chinatown razzle-dazzle of Bangkok's Yaowarat Road. Look for the neon-lit elephant emblem amid 1U's bustle.
Expect flavoursome miang kham bolstered by the crunch & crackle of crispy pork lard (RM15), a thick green curry with pork shoulder & plenty of pumpkin (RM22), sweetish pad thai with bacon, prawns & cuttlefish (RM22), tom yum with siu yok (RM22), pineapple fried rice topped with pork floss (RM20) & much more - competent cooking at mall-appropriate prices. Creative cocktails with Thai & Asian twists will be introduced soon, with components like sake, lemongrass, ginger & butterfly pea extract; for now, refreshments range from the Thai Hou Yum mocktail (RM10; jasmine tea, sour plum, lime) to white wine.
