KhunThai Village Restaurant, PJ Section 5

>> Friday, December 23, 2011

Venue: KhunThai Village Restaurant, Section 5
Overall comment: Pretty good Thai food tucked in a housing area. The prices of food is slightly above average for a restaurant with a coffee-shop ambiance. To the very least, the food tastes good!
Halal: Yes

Early this week, I went to the TRAC office to help CQ conduct some interviews for Jeremiah School 2012's mentor applicants. It's my 1st time doing such a thing for JS & it's truly an experience gained. On that particular session, the team of interviewers screened through 3 applicants who were all very different in character. I sure hope that if they get selected to be a mentor for next year's JS, they will be great leaders & examples to the youths at JS.

After the interview sessions, I had lunch with CQ & CS at the nearby Khun Thai. It's my first time at this restaurant although I've been to that area numerous times for the Chinese food next door :P

We took a while to decide what to eat, considering they have quite an extensive variety on their menu. Here's what we had & what I thought about the food:

Umbra with Sour Plum (RM4.50/cup)
I felt that it was really expensive for a cup of umbra juice, but it's a really concentrated drink without much water added! In my personal opinion, this was a really bad decision to order a cup of umbra juice when we have all the other sour dishes ordered as well! Everything was SO sour that my tongue & stomach was just overwhelmed :S When you have the sour Thai dishes on your table, you would highly appreciate a cup of sweet drink or just plain water.

House Speciality Chilli Dips
I didn't try these although they were served - I can't take dishes that are too spicy, so having spicy dishes by itself was the much that I could handle :P

Chap Oong Omelette (RM9.00/serving)
Interesting omelette. It's my 1st time trying something like this. The vegetables are what they call as "Thai vegetables", which I assume are some sort of ferns. A good variation from the usual onion omelettes.

Four Big Heavenly King (RM15.00/small serving)
This is quite a common dish. I find it quite tasty, thanks to the fragrant sambal belacan. You'll get a plate of mixed long beans, petai, aubergines/brinjals, & ocras/lady's fingers. Unfortunately, I find it slightly too spicy for my liking. My tongue was practically "on fire" & getting numb-er as the continue eating...

Chicken Tom Yam (RM17.00/small serving)
If this is small, I can't imagine the large serving. This could feed at least 4 persons! With the load that the 3 of us ordered, we really ate to our heart's content! Furthermore, this was really "power" & sour for me (ish, I think my level of tolerance towards sour & spicy food has gone down :( ) & oh, I must not forget to mention that there's chicken pieces in ABUNDANCE!

Thai-Style Steamed Siakap (RM38.00/serving)
The gravy was SO nice! Sweet, sourish, & slightly spicy, yet "clear/ching"...oolala. The fish was also fresh & cooked to perfection. Ah, this was the best dish on the table that day. *happy*

I'll certainly come by here next time when I feel like having some decent Thai food in PJ. In my opinion, it's slightly better than My Elephant in Section 17, but such things are so subjective. Ambiance at My Elephant is certainly more "classy", but I still prioritize the quality/taste of food to ambiance of a restaurant. All you can hope each time you're out to dine is that the chefs are consistent whenever you drop by a restaurant :) *keeps fingers crossed*
