I am sure, that many folks who stayed around Old Klang Road, will definitely know or come across the BBQ Thai Street Food Restaurant located at 17, Lorong Jugra, Off Batu 3 1/4 Jalan Klang Lama 58000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia which has been around for more than 3 years serving delicious Thai dishes.
was invited to try out some of the specialities and latest dishes that are offered at the BBQ Thai Restaurant.
If you have visited this restaurant, you would probably know, that the BBQ Thai Restaurant has a unique theme where there are 9 specially built air condition theme dining rooms for you to enjoy your meals in.
On a cool night, you might want to dine at the open area on the centre court for a more relaxing and natural dining experience.
To start off our dinner review, we were served the traditional Papaya Salad (RM15.00) which has a crunchy feel from the raw papaya and a slight sourish taste with a topping of roasted peanuts; indeed a refreshing start for our review.
For the main dishes, we started with a special Steam Squid In Thai Lemon Sauce (RM38.00). Normally, the steam fish would be a standard option for the preparation style of this dish; but we were recommended to try out the White Squid which is one of my favourite seafood too. We love the taste of the broth and the firm bouncy texture of the white squid. Served on top of a Charcoal burner, which leaves the broth piping hot; was wonderfully done with the right balance of spiciness and sourish taste.
Next, we had a dish that you will normally find from the streets of Thailand, which is the Thai Fried Kang Kung (RM15.00). The Kang Kung is first coated with a special batter that will leave a very crispy texture after the deep frying. This dish is served with a special Thai Dip sauce.
For me; you can’t complete a Thai meal without ordering the Thai Tom Yam soup. Ours was the Tom Yam With Fresh Water Prawns (market price) which also comes with other seafood like the white squid, mussels, and oyster mushroom. The version that is served here has a slight milky base with a distinctive aroma and flavours of lemongrass. The spicy level was just right for us too.
Next, we also had the opportunity to try out some of the new dishes which the first is the Thai Style Fried Chicken With 3 Sauce (RM35.00).
Followed by another soup dish; this time, it is the Thai Style Pork Ribs Spicy Sour Soup (RM48.00). The taste of this soup is quite similar to the Mamak Mutton Soup which is spice and herbs based but the main ingredient here is the pork ribs with a slight sourish taste.
and the last main dish from the new menu is the Thai Style Lemon Fried Fish (Seasonal Price). We like this dish as the fish was perfectly fried to a deep crisp and topped with a special lemon sauce which has a tangy taste that is wrapped thoroughly around the fish meat.
As the name of the Restaurant goes by, we definitely must try out the Thai BBQ dishes. To ensure we get to taste a little of everything, we had the Thai BBQ Platter (RM58.00); which comprises of the Thai BBQ Pork Neck – my personal favourite one of the better cut for BBQ, Thai BBQ Squid, Thai BBQ Chicken Wings and Thai BBQ Prawns.
Next, we had a special plate of Thai BBQ Pork Spare Ribs. The Ribs are marinated and BBQ over charcoal to get it the right charred taste; with a fork tender meat texture and topped with a special BBQ sauce.
For Cockles aficionados, you can order the Thai BBQ Kerang (RM15.00) which is also served with the Thai special sauce, unlike the Malaysian style which we will normally eat with sambal belacan.
To wrap up the BBQ dishes, we had the Thai BBQ Butter Crab (seasonal price).
There is a number of dessert offering from the restaurant. For those of you who would like to taste some traditional desserts which the Thai eats can order the Desserts Platter (RM38.00) which has the cute looking Loob Choob which essentially is miniature vegetables and fruits with mung beans filling, The platter also comes with Foi Thong “golden threads” desserts of strings of egg yolk boiled in sugar syrup. The third dessert is the Amara /Khanom Man which is Cassava Cake With Coconut and the last one is the Thai Rice Cake With Special Sauce. You can also order these desserts individually.
The other dessert which is more commonly ordered from Thai Restaurant is the Thai Style Water Chestnut (RM7.00)
and the Thai Style Cendol (RM7.00). A nice little treat; after all the spicy and hearty dishes to cool down our body.
All in, as the Chef which are mainly Thai, does cook out a remarkable spread which we truly enjoyed. We also had the opportunity to savour some of their specialities dishes and the new dishes that are offered by BBQ Thai – Thai Street Food Restaurant – Old Klang Road. By the way, we got to know that the restaurant is now open for lunch too. So, you can head over to get your favourite Tom Yam and other delicious Thai dishes at the restaurant.
