30 March 2016 - It caught my attention when I passed by Restoran Sang Kee KCB in Kampung Cheras Baru last night. Little did I know is that there were at least 10-15 tables of people ordering thai food from a food stall. You can also get to eat Malay Nasi Lemak and Chinese wok-fry serving Ala carte noodles or rice.
Looking at the dimmed old signboard of the restaurant, uncles drinking beer like their usual daily routine, and with the slow wall fan, cooler, and the old 'dirty' floors, you will not be impressed with the atmosphere at all.
Therefore, I bring along my lady musketeers in my family, my mom and sister to take up the challenge of the Thai food. Well, you can't order many things and eat by yourself alone, right?
Made the right choice pulling in the ladies. We have not tried some real spicy food for quite some time, let's say few months back? You can find Thai food anywhere, any food stall in most of the coffee shop, an independent retail shop, some even go into fine dining concept in shopping centres, but the good ones, nah, not really easy to find too.
Flipping the menu, and you can only food photos with Thailand words. Someone help them to translate into Chinese words.
Ask what to recommend to eat, the server seems don't really understand Malay. she ended up pointing the menu, and we just nod our head saying we want that dish. To eat Thailand food in Malaysia, or to go to Thailand to have their local food, more or less you will be ordering what we have ordered.
Some food photos has been repeated because my sister, Jac, took very nice photos using her Samsung S6. Normally I post 1 photo for each food, in this case, full photo album for your pleasure.
Charcoal red seafood Tomyam RM 20. super tasty, with the charcoal fire in low heat. You will be surprised, they are generous giving you large green mussels, medium size prawns, medium-sized squids, abalone mushrooms, tomatoes, and onions. this is a 2 pax portion for your info.
Next, here comes the spicy sour steamed tilapia fish on charcoal as well. Price at RM 35. Fresh and lots of meats, giving you the tangerine lemon taste, hot chilli padi, 'swimming' on the clear soup. Very nice.
Spicy Sambal Petai with medium-sized prawns RM20. Some people anti-petai though, the smell can be as strong as durian. By eating this as our 3rd dish, we hardly feel our tongue, given three of us get a swollen bee lips and sweat like a pig.
Finally, Kam Heong Lala at RM18. I think Kam Heong is not a Thailand cooking style, it's from the Chinese. We normally see Kam Heong (Golden Fragrance) style to cook along with the shell seafood. The ingredients needed to cook Kam Heong: 1 tbsp curry powder, 2 chilli padi (bird's eye chili), 1/2 tbsp Taucheo (soy bean paste/豆酱) slightly pounded, and 2 sprigs curry leaves. So far, I have not taste any bad Kam Heong seafood.
Price is okay, we spend RM 96 for everything, given the flavorful Thailand food taste as if we are in Thailand. Highly recommend if you can take up spicy food or if you are in love with Thailand food.
