Eat Drink Thai @ Kota Damansara

Eat Drink Thai's signature attraction is its steaming seafood pot - a whole barramundi, plus a substantial serving of tiger prawns, squid & mussels, bathed in the patron's pick of Thai-inspired broth (red tom yum, clear tom yum, the spicier tom sapp, tom kha, sourish kaeng som curry, or ma nao with chilli, garlic & lime). The largesse of the ocean tastes fresh, with the sizable fish & fleshy crustaceans ranking as the stars, complemented by our choice of the tom kha coconut milk soup, a light, mild & clean-tasting base. Complemented by corn & tomatoes, it's an honest bargain at RM59 for a portion that'll easily satiate three.

For a less elaborate meal, classics like hard-boiled eggs in tamarind sauce (RM9), pad thai (RM12) & stir-fried chicken with petai (RM13) work well enough if you favour a slant to Thai street fare that's slightly more mellow in flavour than the norm.

  2. Aiyo, you didn't "copyright" your "eatdrink"? Kekeke! :D Oh, that steaming seafood pot is real value...and it reminds me of something similar at Pudu's Fatt Kee (Ah Fa) Roast Fish. When you say "more mellow in flavour", do you mean "less spicy"? My friends like less spicy! ;)

  3. Aroi Mak Mak! I love that Signature dish and sourish kaeng som curry. That sounds like the Paktai cooking styles from the Southern Thailand.

  7. The seafood pot is very affordable because the similar dish served at other restaurant (normally Chinese restaurants) is priced at higher price.
