Tom Yum Creamy Porridge with Seafood and Minced Chicken (RM21.90) was the highlight for the lunch. This newly added menu is the dish that recently went popular in Bangkok and Streat Thai’s chef travelled back to Thailand to learn this dish so we could have it here in Malaysia. This Tom Yum Creamy Porridge is served with a generous portion of fresh seafood such as squid, salmon slices, fresh prawns and minced chicken. I really like the balance of sour-spicy in this thick and smooth porridge. Be sure to stir in the egg with the rest before you eat!
Another favourite for that lunch was its signature Streat Thai Fried Chicken Wings (RM17.90 for 6 wings). The crunchy crisp wings, flavoured with lemongrass taste were very appetising and addictive. Can’t stop eating! This is another dish that will keep me coming back for more.
The Thai Iced Tea (RM5.90) was not as rich as those we had in Thailand. We wished that the tea could be stronger.
Similar to the Thai Iced Tea, the Thai Iced Milk Coffee (RM5.90) could be improved. This drink is for you if you like your coffee milder.
Red Ruby with Coconut Milk (RM6.90) came with red and green “ruby” pieces that were made from water chestnut cubes in tapioca flour coatings, as well as slices of sweet jackfruit. A refreshing bowl after a warm day. However, unlike those in Thailand, Streat Thai served this dessert without the salak fruit syrup. We felt like something was missing without the syrup.
Thai Shaved Ice (RM8.90) was rather unique. The shaved ice was drizzled with salak fruit syrup and coconut, served with 3 toppings – sweetened pumpkin, sweet potato and grass jelly – in shot glasses on the side.
Verdict: Delicious and affordable prices for authentic Thai street food. Recommended dishes are the Braised Beef Noodles, Tom Yum Noodles Soup, Tom Yum Creamy Porridge with Seafood and Minced Chicken and signature Fried Chicken Wings.
