Another post about Thai restaurant in Sydney, yet again... Seems never ending when it comes to Thai food, especially with Sydney-sider having a high demand of Authentic Thai food. If I'm not wrong, now apparently there are more than 1,000 Thai restaurants just in Sydney let alone and it's still growing.
This time is one of the finest upscale Thai restaurant with elegant decoration and renowned for its uniquely authentic and tasty Thai dishes. Conveniently located in the middle of metro and top area, Darlinghurst. This place however, its might sounds splurging in term of pricewise but the food and services are absolutely top knot. Booking is highly recommended here and they only do two seating times for dinner which are 6 pm and 8.30 pm.
I bet most of you guys have heard about Spice I Am before. Yes!! because they not only produce spectacular food but under the same management they actually have four branches across Sydney with all having different and unique concept. Not too wrong to say that they are big brother in this industry.
I've been to three of them. One in Surry Hills, is a tiny and squeezy but mind for the long queue on dinner time.
The next restaurant is in the Darlinghurst, (this post)
Another one is House Thai (even it has a different name, but they still under the same management). They use different name for this particular restaurant, I think because in this place they more specialise in North Eastern Thai cuisine, dishes like Som Tum and BBQ chicken with sticky rice. Also, strongly use fermented fish sauce for the salty touch, tamarind for the sour punch, that's distinguishing them for the flavours of North Eastern.
And last but not least the newly open Spice I Am at Balmain.
|Lychee Martini $18|
|Grande Lychee Mojito $19|
|Khao Kreab Pak Mor $24 (6 pieces)|
|Bour Tod 6pcs $16|
|Goong Ma Kham $38|
|Gaeng Ped Yang Red Duck Curry $39|
The dish topped with the fresh coconut flesh which helps thicken the curry and become even more refreshing and light. Serving it on the fresh coconut shell, is a traditional and excellent way to present the dish.
|Pad Prik Khing Moo Grob Crispy Pork Belly $30|
|Pla Tod Yum Ma Muang $ 38|
|Lemon and Mandarin Ice Cream $10|
|Khao Niew I-Tim $12|
My hubby explain that, Khao Niew I-Tim, is one of the favourite snack food for Thais, but in Thailand the way they are served is quite different. A single slice of bread, folded into two and filled with sticky rice, coconut ice cream and topping choices of yours. Crusted peanut may sometimes be added as well.
|Cup C $18|
The devine warm baked chocolate cake served with vanilla ice cream and oozy chocolate lava melted in the middle. Word fell to describe how delicious this chocolate cup. But what I know is, six spoons sunk into this heavenly chocolate cup and scrapped til not even a single cake's crumb left. Then we looked at each other and our eyes telling we surely need one more. Even that's would take another 20 minutes waiting as it freshly baked to order, we allowed ourself to sacrify. The second dish came and our table become the quietest moment only the 'clinging' sound from spoons and only the sighing "Hmmm..." Ooohhhhh..." Ahhh....". Yet the second cup still didn't change the taste of it. You know what I mean rite, normally if the tummy is full already and the second dish of the same food will go like errr.. But hey, not happened for this time.
