Chat Thai: Chinatown (09 July 2012)

After a hectic drive to and from Costco to stock up on Hersheys and toilet paper rolls, I met up with some friends for dinner at Chat Thai to celebrate and spend the money we had just saved at Costco. We were quite famished so between the four of us we ordered seven dishes! 

Som dtum thai ($12)

 To start things of we had the green papaya salad with peanuts and dried shrimps (spicy version). I quite like the spicy version as it’s not unbearably spicy, providing just enough kick to the tangy-ness of the salad. 

Fresh Spring Rolls ($11)

The salad was then followed by the fresh spring rolls of smoked fish sausages, chicken and crab with caramelised tamarind relish. This is one of my favourite dishes at Chat Thai, and starts of quite subtle in flavour, before the mixed flavours of smoked fish sausages, chicken and crab with caramelised tamarind relish starts to build up in your mouth. 

Yum woon sen ($17)

 Salad of glass noodles with minced chicken, calamari, mussels and prawns. Definitely one of their more chilli salads. 

Padt Thai ($13)

 Stir fried thin rice noodles with chicken, dried shrimps, bean sprouts, garlic and chives in a tamarind and palm sugar sauce, topped with bean sprouts, peanuts and a wedge of lemon.

Chilli fried rice ($14)

Fried rice with chicken, eggs and chinese kale 

Emerald duck ($15)

 Stir fried five spice duck with seasonal greens – this was delicious in that all the vegetables were also infused with the emerald (five spice) duck flavour!

Mhu grob padt prik khing ($15)

Stir fried crisp pork belly and wild ginger in red curry paste 

As always Chat Thai was able to provide tasty and delicious Thai food with efficient and quick service. Just be aware of the line, so factor in something to do whilst waiting for a table :)
