The Krua @ Petaling Jaya
March 27, 2016
Thai-born Anne Kanyapat helms this new casual venue that seeks to reflect the full-on flavours of her northeastern heritage.
Specialities include an aromatic house-made pork sausage (RM15) & classic Isan green papaya salad with fish sauce (RM12).
If you're a fan of traditional braised pork leg, this is worthwhile - tender & fatty, with light, pleasing herbal nuances (RM35).
The menu is extensive, comprising some 80 recipes, from stir-fries like preserved eggs with minced pork & holy basil (RM25; rather on the greasy side) to curries like panang pork (RM25; a bit more fiery than expected - The Krua isn't scared of spices). Set meals are available too; a steamed rice platter with some catfish & egg, plus a butterfly pea flower beverage, costs RM15.
Warm, satisfying desserts include a lovely, creamy-soft pumpkin wedge with a smooth centre of coconut milk & egg custard (RM8) & taro balls with young coconut in coconut cream (RM8). All in all, there's potential for The Krua to be a destination for fans of fuss-free Thai authenticity.
