A visit to Aroy Chang Moo Kata Thai Restaurant Burma Lane Penang

Previously Pulau Tikus were conquered by Japan cuisine but recently i notice Thai cuisine had taken over this role. Or we should called it little Thailand? Aroy Chang Moo Kata is one of the shinning star among others Thai restaurant. Aroy Chang Moo Kata had opened for business for 1 year but it capture the stomach of a lots customer. This is because they been serving a good sized portion and reasonable price authentic Thai cuisine. Moreover the price is NETT, mean that there will be no service and government charges. The food serve here is cooked by a Changmai Thai chef.

Simple and cozy Aroy Chang Moo Kata Thai Restaurant.

I like most is that food place which is clean and simple.

You can learn a few Thai language doh.

There is a Thai gal figuring welcoming the customer when dine in. 

Lemongrass juice, RM1.50. It is really a refreshing drink, it was cooked with ginger, lemongrass and pandan leaves. It have a strong lemongrass smell and mild ginger and pandan smell after drink. It is believe to have a lot medication value which improve your health. 

Somtam ,Young Papaya Salad, Rm 8. It is a good appetizer. It contain shredded raw papaya,  raw long bean, raw tomato,  raw chilies, roasted groundnut and serve in lime juice and fish sauce. To be honest, this is not my kind of dish. As i am not so use to raw ingredient but i heard some of the guys love it. 

Pla Phad Phed, deep fried whole sea bass with spicy sauce Rm35-45. It is really mouth watering and sweating dish. I can't eat that spicy. Although the dish is good but it also torture me. I love the sauce very much. It go well with rice. 

Tom Yam Nam Sai, Clear Seafood Tom Yam With Fresh Prawns, Squid and Fish, Rm 15-25. It is actually a Thai Tom Yam, the normal Tom Yam we get in Malaysia is a evolution of this dish. Our Tom Yam added in curry powder. That is why our Tom Yam is red. Btw, this Tom Tam Nam Sai is super spicy to me. Another torturing dish to me but not to spicy lover. 

Clockwise - 1. Cha Om Omelette, it serve well with thai chilies sauce. 2. Tamarind Prawns in Basil, Rm 3.50/ pcs, minimum order of 6 pieces). Love the sour sauce that serve on top. Nicely done prawn with crispy texture with some appetizing sauce, GOOD. 3. Larbmoo, Minced Pork With Fried Rice Flakes Rm 12. Another crying dish for me, it contain boom inside the dish - CHILLI PADI. 4. Khoon Ob Woon Sen, glass noodles Baked In Pot Rm15. I believe this is a all time favorite just because this is the grass noodle suck up all the delicious sauce. Yummy yummy, though of that i am drilling already. 

Next to come is the signature dish for Aroy Chang Moo Kata - Moo Kata. I know is lame :) Here you can get a charcoal Moo Kata. Everything cooked with charcoal is always better, why? This is because according to study, charcoal will release a far infrared when it is burn. This ray is the reason why dishes smelled and cooked better, that is what we called charcoal smell. Beside charcoal, Aroy Chang Moo Kata also using 2 big pieces of pork lard. Compare with bar b q plaza, Moo Kata serve here way better. The Moo Kata set sold here is for 2 ~ 3 pax at RM30. 

Dishes you will get from the set. 

Crave for Moo Kata? Think Aroy Chang Moo Kata.

Sweet ending with tub tim krob. 

Aroy Chang Moo Kata also offer tiffin food delivery. 
Overall it is really a adventure for me as i am not a spicy lover, although it is a torturing dinner but i enjoy it :)
