It’s been awhile since I last had Thai food, so H & I met up for lunch at Streat Thai, tucked in a corner of The School at Jaya One in PJ.
Specialising in Thai street food, the cosy establishment has a casual, canteen-like ambiance with bright chairs, wooden benches for group seating and live action stalls where diners can watch the chefs whip up dishes to order. Apparently the chefs come from various areas in Thailand such as Bangkok, Chiang Rai & Pattaya, so you can expect authentic flavours! 🙂
No air conditioning but the lofty ceiling and windows help with air ventilation.
Currently trending in Thailand is the ‘Tom Yum UFO’ – a hotpot of instant noodles in spicy, tangy tomyum soup with various accompanying goodies such as crab meat sticks, seafood and eggs. At Streat Thai, they dub it ‘Tom Yum Wow’.
H&I got a pot for two to share. (RM42.90). Aside from crab meat sticks and chicken balls, the mix was also topped with fried chicken wings which still retained a slight crispiness even after soaking in the soup. Served separately were fried fish fillets which were nice and moist. Salty, crispy, springy, savoury – what more can one ask for?
The restaurant also serves other well-loved Thai dishes like stir-fried chicken in basil, fried rice, and more.
To wash it down, a customary must-have at every Thai restaurant: ice-cold Thai milk tea.
