Before I begin…
I would like to wish all readers/floggers a Happy Chinese Rabbit Year. Gong Xi Fatt Chai!
Okay, back to business. This is a long overdue post and also my last post for the week.
We were wandering around Jungceylon, Patong Beach’s largest shopping mall the whole day, trying to seek shelter from the scorching hot weather outside. It was almost dinner time when we passed by the connecting passage that connects Jungceylon with Millennium Resort Patong, (which is located just next to the mall) and saw a big notice board promoting their food and beverages at 50% discount! Hotel food at half price discount, wheee!!!
*Sorry for the typo error on the picture; it should be “resort” instead of “hotel”
It was rather early for dinner actually (5pm?) but we doesn’t want to go back to our hotel and come out again, so we decided to have early dinner and we were the only customers at that time. Serving Mediterranean, Western and Thai delicacies, they have an optional al fresco dining at the garden terrace too. Menu is easy to browse with big fonts, description for each dishes and spiciness level indication. And before we place our order, we double (or maybe triple) check with the waitress and yes, we were entitled for the 50% discount. :p
Complimentary bread with butter. It was rather strange though to serve bread as starter since we ordered only Thai dishes that evening, but the bread were good, no complaints here.
We decided to go fiery hot that evening, hence we ordered all spicy dishes such as the Red Curry with Pork (usual price 250 Baht). You can choose the type of curry (red or green) and ingredients (pork, chicken, beef or prawns) and it will be the same price. Although spiciness level was indicated as 2, we found it rather mild (as you can see the colour is not very red here due to higher content of coconut milk) and the sliced pork were really, really tender! I learnt a new Thai word here too; apparently “Moo” refers to pork and not beef. Beef is called “Nuea”. It would be much easier if “moo” is beef, doesn’t it?
Tom Yam Talay (seafood, usual price 210 Baht) came in its full glory; abundance of squid, fish fillet, prawns, onions, tomatoes, button mushrooms etc all swimming in a tangy tom yam soup. It has the right amount of kick in every sip, sending us into “sweat mode” directly. But luckily for us, the Vegetarian Massaman (original price 170 Baht) was mildy spicy, similar to the pork curry. Plenty of vegetables were chucked into this delicious curry dish, including carrot, broccoli, cauliflower, button mushroom, baby corn and oyster mushroom. And lastly, the deep fried seabass with three flavours of chilli sauces (original price 300 Baht) wowed us with its succulent, firm and fresh meat. Did ala sweet and sour style, the sauce lend a touch of Thai to the overall dish.
