Erawan Part II

Ever since I revealed my favourite secret location for my usual Thai fix in one of the previous post, my sister has been blaming me for not taking her there. Last weekend was very timely as I was having my off day on Saturday and I felt like having a full day of eating out. We started with dim sum at Imperial China in Subang Jaya for brunch and then Snowflake at SS15 before making reservation at Erawan for dinner.

Lucky last Saturday wasn't crowded at Erawan. As usual, Anan came and took our orders and he told me that I was in luck because someone pre-ordered a Lemongrass Chicken and since he made extras, I can tap on the order.

Wow, I must say that the Lemongrass Chicken (RM32) was really good. The taste of lemongrass was intense and I can tell that this chicken is very well-marinated and nicely roasted. It goes very well with the Thai chili sauce as well as their home made sauce. Pre-order is required by at least 24 hours.

He also introduced a Pomelo Salad (RM25) for our appetiser. It was indeed a very interesting salad as you get generous amounts of freshly imported pomelo, laden with crushed peanuts, coriander and 3 huge succulent prawns. The sauce that accompanied the salad compliments it very well. It's a very refreshing appetiser.

We ordered a different green curry this time. It's called the Green Curry Fish Paste with Salted Egg (RM32). This curry has 5 fish paste balls (made purely with ikan tenggiri) and stuffed with Thai salted egg yolk. The curry is not too spicy and it's quite interesting to have salted egg yolk with curry. I thought it might taste weird but it didn't.

Ziling wanted the Thick Tom Yum soup (RM30) with seafood. I usually order their clear tom yum and spiciness rating is capped at 1.5. Calvin wanted to a rating of 5 but I stopped him because obviously I can't stomach that. After trying the soup, Calvin had changed his mind about having it at level 5. Haha... We didn't really enjoy the thick soup as it was too milky.

Calvin & his obligatory dessert

The Lim Sistas

The dinner was very satisfying. We managed to gobbled up the 6 dishes and a dessert. Together with the Lemongrass with Honey & Ginger juice, the bill came up to RM200. It's not cheap but at least I have no complaints. After that we head home to catch the World Cup match.

I was watching my favourite team - Argentina up against Nigeria. Wow, I must say that the goalkeeper for Nigeria was quite good. If not, the score wouldn't be 1:0 because Argentina has lots of near-goal-attempts. Too bad that most of the interesting matches is played at 2.30am and I am not quite ready to sacrifice my sleep. I'll probably do it when it comes to the quarter or semi-finals.

To gear up for the World Cup fever, besides following some of the interesting matches, I did show my support for the team by having a Twibbon on my avatar of my Twitter. Follow me on twitter if you haven't done so and I'll be posting updates on the matches now and then!

looks like they're quite creative with their food! sometimes i feel that thai food can be a bit dull, since most thai places serve the same types of curry, etc. but this one at least tries to be a BIT different, rite? maybe i'll bump into you there some evening after all :D

YilingL said...

yum yum yummmm... the ambience is really nice and not commercialized as other Thai places with "loads of branches, under same management but different names and same menu" :p

eiling lim said...

Sean: Well, if you go on the weekends, I might have a chance to bump into you. This place serves creative Thai food and I don't think you'll feel bored but most of the special dishes have to be pre-ordered and you can view the menu on their website.

Yiling: Yeah... so satisfying right?! I know which outlet you're talking about!

Hi there.
I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this website?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've
had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
