Last week was really a food binge week.
Thai food for dinner at Rochor Thai with my parents and Oppa
Caught the chef and owner , Joel in action preparing dishes for his customers. There are also 2 chefs from Thailand. I had a small chat with him and got to know that he is a year younger than me and had a huge interest in Thai culture and food hence the opening of Rochor Thai. I was amazed at how he can cook so many Thai dishes. As for me , i am still learning how to cook Korean dishes every week. Someone who has passion will definitely try to reach perfection for anything he/she does. I can see the passion he has in Thai culture and Thai food. Yes im talking about myself too. Sounds abit thick skinned but i always do my best to ensure the dishes which i cook for my bf taste the same as authentic Korean home cooked food and i succeeded…
Papaya Salad with Salted Duck Egg – $7.80. Thais eat this dish almost everyday. Saw it quite often when i went to Bangkok for holiday.
Red Tom Yum Seafood Soup $15.80( large size) . Love this Tom yum soup so much ! Not too sour and not too spicy.
Grilled Pork Collar $12.80. The meat is succulent and we all love the dipping sauce!
Our favourite – Pad Pong Curry Prawns $18.80(S) $26.80(L)
Kalum Pli Pad Nam Pla – Stir Fried Cabbage with Fish Sauce $7.80(S) $11.80(L)
Looks simple but this dish was our favourite too and we finished it up sooooo fast ! It has this “wo hei” taste and soooooo damn nice.
Gaeng Som Pla – Orange Curry of Poached Red Snapper. The meat was very soft and i love the tenderness of the Red snapper.
Oppa’s favourite Pad Thai Seafood. There are sugar and other condiments at the side and you mix it with the Pad Thai bit by bit to your taste. The Pad Thai has a “wo hei” taste and i like it alot. Dont know why but i love food that has the “wo hei” taste infused in it. Lotsa prawns and i love prawns !
The Thai desserts that everyone knows of –
Khao Niew Ma Muang – Mango Sticky Rice $7.80.
Mango was soft and fresh.Fresh yellow Thai mangoes are paired with sweet coconut-y warm sticky rice. Not very sour. Some restaurants served very sour mangoes and i really don’t like that.
The prices at Rochor Thai are very affordable and if you want authentic Thai food , this is a place to go to. Having been to Thailand often , the food at Rochor Thai definitely taste like aunthentic local Thai food.
