Sukhumvit Soi 38, Adelaide

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.

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.

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.

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.

    I find it is super hard to find really good Thai because so often it’s sweetened for Western palates. You’ll definitely have to stop by Thaitown next time you’re in Sydney!

    Kuay teaw moo looks reasonably worth it for $10 did you say?! WOW

      It’s so hard to find anything for $10 these days and this was right in the center of the city D:
