I’ve never been a fan of Thai food until Belgium (weird I know) where I tried the most amazing pad thai in Leuven – greasy, delicious and full of flavour. At some point I was munching on my takeaway pad thai and as J was unrolling her sleeping bag, a dead slug flung onto her and caused the room to smell disgusting. As everyone was dying from the smell I was luckily saved – I could only smell the pad thai which ended up being passed around for people to have a sniff. From that moment on the poor Belgiums could only associate the dead slug smell to pad thai :3
I’ve been walking passed Sukhumvit Soi 38 for a while now and with my new found interest in Thai food I was keen to try it. After hearing many good reviews and finding an eating buddy in W we gave it a go during a lunchtime catch up. They have lunch specials at only $10 where W tried the Kuay Teaw Moo which was a Northeastern hot and spicy noodle soup with sliced BBQ pork, minced meat and meatballs. A big thumbs up was given by this eater.
Kuay Teaw Moo ($10)
Pad thai with rice noodles with chunks of chicken, small pieces of egg and a small amount of peanuts and chilli on the side with a wedge of lemon. Mixing it all together made for such a delicious dish with each strand of noodle filled with flavour and I loved the heat from the chilli and the crunch from the peanuts.
Pad Thai ($15)
Dessert was a sweet bread roll filled with sticky rice but I found the bread to be a bit stale. Topped with refreshing coconut icecream that tastes like coconut milk, pineapple chunks, peanuts and drizzled with some carnation milk made for a refreshing dessert.
Khanom Pang Ai Tiim ($8)
Delicious pad thai which has been something I haven’t been able to find in Adelaide before. Would love to come back to try more of what they have.
