Welcome to Mae Krua. That small Thai restaurant sitting obscurely along F Ramos Street.
Dragging along my partner in crime and Nori, our newfound Japanese friend who we met thru Couchsurfing, we settled on a table for three and each chose a dish. For me, eating in a Thai restaurant is not eating in a Thai restaurant without tom yam goong. So yes, tom yam goong (spicy prawn soup) plus khao pad joy (vegetarian fried rice), see krong moo thod katiam (pork spareribs in garlic), and gai phad num prick phaw (chicken in thai chili paste).
Soup bowl's almost empty!
I love their tom yam goong's level of sourness! I can probably finish the whole thing but I shan't be greedy. You can order a small one (good for 2 to 3 persons) or the large size.
|Lemme swim in that glorious soup!|
Their khao phad joy (vegetarian fried rice) comes in small (good for 2 to 3 persons) or large portions. It had vegetables (of course!) and cashew. If you think nuts in rice is strange, please give me all the cashew and I'll gladly eat them... Yummy!
Nori ordered the see krong moo thod katiam (pork spareribs in garlic). It was perfectly tender and... Yummy!
My partner in crime likes chicken and so chose the gai phad num prick phaw. The chicken pieces were cooked just right and... Yummy!
We finished everything and left with our plates gleaming, stomachs smiling. Will definitely come back for more... Yummy!
