Boran – Classic Thai Street Food @ Sea Park, P.J
Sawadeeka from Bangkok! I wish but……ok let’s plan a trip soon~~
I miss everything about the ‘Land of Smiles’, from the friendly Thai peoples to those tangled mess overhead wires and of course the mouth-watering aromas from the street food stalls.
But when my travel wish couldn’t be granted, I’ll seek for compensation to comfort my sorrowfulness. Food that’s it!
Baron, a clean, simple, and fuss-free setup that serve some classic Thai street food. A huge size menu being placed in front of their shop, the choices isn’t really extensive though.
Straight forward wooden tables and chairs arranged neatly within the space and one of the wall is fully adorned with retro tin signs.
Some Thai snacks being sold here.
Thai Milk Tea (RM5.00) & Hot Green Tea (RM2.00)
The Thai milk tea was pretty good, adequately creamy and aromatic.
Tom Sap Pork Ribs (RM10.90)
It’s clear Tom Yum soup with pork ribs, fish cakes and oyster mushroom. The broth didn’t seem spicy at first but the heat caught on soon after a few spoonfuls. The soup had quite a well balanced flavours, sourness, spiciness and perfumed with lemongrass and kaffir leaves.
Classic Pork Noodle (RM4.90)
Comprise a choice of meehoon or Thai noodles (flat rice noodles/Koay Teow), this classic soups noodles is only sufficient for a snack, unless you are a small eater like my girl. 😛 Served in a mild-flavoured clear broth, one may add in fish sauce, vinegar plus a dash of chili powder and sugar to punch up with the flavour.
Sauces and seasoning tray on every table.
Fried Wonton Skin (RM1.50)
Pork Belly Skewers (RM9.90 for 3)
Simply a must order for me, the pork was perfectly marinated and nicely grilled to a shiny and caramelized finish. Smoky and bursting with flavours in every bite, sharing is strongly NOT recommended!
Grilled Pork Neck (RM14.90 for approximately 200g)
The grilled pork neck didn’t quite live up to my expectation. The meat was slightly on dry side, too lean I guessed but the flavours was pretty satisfying. For more oomph, pair this with the dipping sauce which consisted of fish sauce, chili powder and coriander.
Red Ruby (RM6.00)
Coconut Ice Cream (RM6.00 for 2 scoops)
Not exceptionally memorable but they did provide a decent refreshing sweet ending to my Thai dinner.
But after the meal, I still felt like want to fly to Bangkok, so I brought home some snacks to continue cheer up myself. ~>_<~
Verdict: Wallet friendly Thai street food that worth a try if you eagerly fly to ‘Land of Smiles’ but couldn’t make it like me. >_< The downside is the choices are rather limited, if you don’t mind.
