Thai Camp @ Taman Paramount, P.J
Still remember I’ve mentioned about the postpone of my Bangkok trip on previous post? Yeah, there’s a drastic change which I’ve finally booked my air ticket to Bangkok, here I come my long waited shopping & makan trip! *throw confetti
Before I can indulge in the “real” Thai fares at the The Land of Smiles , let’s warm up my tummy with some equally authentic Thai food at Thai Camp! Owned by Nick and his Thai wife, this humble neighborhood Thai restaurant offers some homey and traditional Thai cuisines that will definitely satiated your craving for hot & spicy food.
Nestled at Taman Paramount, P.J, right beside Restoran Mei Yen, Thai Camp occupied a rather small space which can be easily filled up with 20+ patrons.
The dining area is themed in white with a few interesting hand drawn murals.
Pandan Drink, Lemongrass Drink, Iced Thai Tea, Iced Green Tea Milk
The menu features pretty extensive non-halal Thai dishes included salads, soup, chicken, pork, seafood stir fried and steamed fish.
Yum Ta Lae (RM 20.00)
Started off with the appetizing seafood salad consists of prawns, squid rings, minced meat, onions, deep fried egg, tomato, cilantro & chili tossed in lime dressing. It was indeed a great palate opener to welcome more food 😛
Tod Man Pla (RM 12.00)
The deep fried fish cakes were slightly overcooked rendering a dry texture.
Tom Yum Ta Lae (RM 25.00)
The mandatory order when dine in Thai restaurant. The soup was well balanced and had a good kick of spiciness and sourness level which I like. For the price charged, I was happy with my pot of seafood Tom Yum brimming with huge prawns, squid, fish fillet, clams and mushrooms.
Tom Ka Kai (RM 22.00)
Other than the red Tom Yum soup, this White Tom Yum Chicken came in thick and creamy consistency with intense coconut milk flavors. Both the red and white broth share the similar spiciness but the later deftly infused with assorted herbs such as lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves.
Kaeng Phad (RM 22.00)
Highly recommended by Nic, the taste of this Northern Thai curry really surprised us. The first sip reminded me of Pork Leg Vinegar which is a common Chinese dish especially for confinement period. It had a pleasant savory and spicy flavors then finished with a mild sour note. The combination of flavors certainly not something we were expecting but it work harmoniously, give this a try and share with me your thoughts!
Pla Neung Ma Naw (RM 35.00)
The steamed Tilapia was submerged in gravy concoction of lime, garlic, chili padi, and more on bed of Chinese cabbage. The gravy had an addictive fiery tangy sensation that will tempt you scoop up one spoon after another until the plate was polished off.
Moo Sam Chan Yang (RM 22.00)
The grilled pork belly possessed a pleasant smoky flavor. The pork belly with balance proportion of lean and fat meat was well marinated, went well with rice or a great beer snack.
Nham Moo Yang (RM 16.00)
Differ from the ubiquitous tube form, this sausage in piece form is a common street food at Northern region. It brings an unique sour taste which is the result of fermentation of pork and sticky rice. Wrapped with the accompanied crisp lettuce, chili, raw garlic and chili sauce, pop into your mouth and feel the pungent sensation.
Thai Camp also serve both savory and sweet thick toast featuring interesting toppings, we had two versions that evening.
Toast with Tom Yum Mix with Chicken Floss
A brilliant combination of Tom Yum sauce and chicken floss, imparted a mellow of spiciness and savory taste to the toast. Oh, so Thai! ^__*
