When it comes to food blogging, I take recommendations quite seriously as they help shape the content for my blog. One of my readers suggested that I try Go Thai in SS2 after I blogged about Frame Thai last month, so I did. :)
Go Thai serves Thai street food, similar to Frame Thai but in a more comfortable setting – you don’t have to endure the stuffiness when you eat. The menu and pricing is similar to Frame Thai, and you get the usual suspects like stewed pork leg with rice (RM9), pad thai (RM9), grilled pork fillet (RM10 for 3), tom yum seafood (RM12) and Thai iced tea (RM4).
I loved the seafood tom yum, which came with a generous amount of mussels, squid rings, prawns and mushrooms. This was spicy yet sweet from the addition of seafood, and slightly creamy from the addition of coconut milk.
Less exciting was the stewed pork leg with rice. I liked the one from Frame Thai better as this version was less flavourful and the skin wasn’t as gelatinous. The grilled pork fillet was too sweet for my liking and there wasn’t enough fat to add flavour to the meat. While it was still decent, I wasn’t bowled over.
If I had to choose the worst dish that afternoon, that award would go to the pad thai. This was a soggy mess – noodles clumped together and lacking in both flavour and aroma. Better was the deep fried pork slices in garlic sauce, served with white rice and fried egg. Nothing to shout about either but still better than the noodles.
I didn’t care much for the Thai iced tea as it was rather diluted and lacking flavour. Somehow, I can’t seem to find food Thai iced tea in KL as even the ones from fancy Thai restaurants aren’t good. rif didn’t like the tub tim krob (RM6) but I didn’t mind it. He insists Rayong Thai serves the best version and I do agree with him on that.
While it may seem like we ordered a lot, portions were (unsurprisingly) small so it wasn’t a difficult feat. Especially since we went there ravenous. ;)
Food: 6/10 (non halal)
Verdict: While the seafood tom yum was good, I wasn’t as impressed with the other items.
