Below were the ambient of the lovely place.
|Some of the beverage serve at Restaurant Thai Baiyok.|
|Miang Pla Kraphong RM18 (Large) RM12 (Small). These is one of the traditional appetizer. Deep fried seabass cubes, shrimp, peanut, chilies, nutmeg, onion and sweet & sour sauce. It was also served with wild betel leaves (daun kaduk).|
This is how you wrap it. It got mild fresh grass aroma but it goes well with the appetizer doh.
|Goong Khai Daeng RM18 (large) RM12 (small). Deep fried roti with salted eggs and prawns. The combination were wanderfull, especially really really fresh prawns were used. A little unfortunate was the bread suck up some oil else it will be perfect :)|
|Pla Rad Makhaam RM45. The fish was so fresh that you can eat without sauce. The special sauce that put on top was actually tamarind sauce.|
|Kai Yang RM18 (large) RM12 (small). BBQ chicken marinated in some sweet sauce. The best part of all it come with a very unique chili dip sauce. I prefer the chili sauce with more chive.|
|Goong Choo Chii (RM5/each). Big fresh prawn serve with special made sauce.|
|See how big were the prawns!!!|
|The seafood otak-otak was wrapped in a tin foil with the shaped of a goose.|
|Hor Mok Talay RM32 (large) RM16 (small). This is another MUST TRY dish, the otak otak was really really GOOD. Soft, moist and creamy doh. Don't forget the fresh seafood stuffed inside. Yum yum !!!|
|Tom Yam Talay, RM35 (family) RM18 (small) RM25 (big). Spicy southern tom yam with fresh seafood, what else you need?|
|Thap Thim Krop (RM4.50 each). Not over sweet which i like, fresh delicious coconut flesh with sago chestnut nut. The best thing was they used fresh santan!!!|
The place is quiet, cozy and nice for party or celebration. Best part of all is very convenient for parking. The chefs work here were from Thai but their cooking were too mild for Thai. I understanded that they cook to serve local cause local people not used to thick flavor like Thai people.
