Thai By Thai @ PJ New Town

April 12, 2016

This no-frills venue could be worth a visit for various traditional Thai noodles not often seen in many of the Klang Valley's restaurants - chef Nok hails from Chiang Mai, so the top temptation here is her city's beloved khao soi gai (RM8.90), a mix of vermicelli & crispy noodles with a chicken drumstick & shallots in a light but satisfyingly fragrant curry. The yen ta fo (RM8.90) is enjoyable enough too, with wide rice noodles immersed in broth made pinkish with preserved bean curd paste, its fermented flavour balanced with fish cakes, squid, tofu & veggies; it takes a few spoonfuls to acquire this taste, but it's worth persevering.

Thai By Thai also offers a simplified rendition of khanom jeen (RM8.90), turning it into a laksa that pairs a plate of dry noodles with green curry chicken, sliced long beans & pickled mustard greens, to be mixed up & consumed together. You'll also find everything from lad na (noodles in gravy) to kuay tiew nuer (noodles with beef) here, but for our final order, we couldn't resist our favourite Pad Thai - the restaurant does a decent version; the prawns could be fresher, but for RM9.90, it's not a bad bet.
