Was in Subang Jaya today and was craving for some Thai food. After looking around, I decided on giving Fa Ying Street a try. Why? because it is relatively new (opened early this year), because it has been a while since I’ve had Thai food and because I have not ventured much into SS 15 Courtyard. So, what better time to go check it out, if not now.
This eatery is located on the Ground Floor and shares the floor with Naj & Belle and Naughty Nuri’s, among others.
Seafood Pad Thai, 16 ringgit
Now this, I liked very much. It was truly delicious. The stir fried rice noodles were well cooked. Generous amount of seafood accompanied this dish – squid, prawns and chicken bits. With some tasty fish crackers on the side, this was a yummy, flavorful dish. You get a little bit of sweet,wet and sogginess from the noodles, crushed peanuts to provide the much needed/anticipated crunchiness and a little sour/bitterness from the lime. I liked it a lot.
Pad Kra Pao/ Chicken Rice with Fried Egg, 14 ringgit
I had a love/hate relationship with this dish. I like it because I love Chinese mix rice and this was what it tasted like, I hate it because it tasted like Chinese mix rice, which was not what I came to a Thai restaurant to eat – get what I mean? Is it suppose to taste that way? I do not know. Basically this dish is a combination of white rice + fried egg + cucumber + fish crackers + chicken bit with sweet soy sauce?, dried chili and sesame. Minus the prawn crackers and the cucumber, this would be exactly what I would take on a plate when I visit a Chinese mix rice and it does taste almost the same. So yea, kindda on the fence with this.
Thai Fish Cakes, 14 Ringgit
This was my least favorite dish, one I disliked. Here I was hoping for an actual fish to be used in the fish cakes but yea, it tasted almost exactly like the ones you buy from the grocer, store it in your fridge and fry it at your own convenience, it may be within days or weeks or even months. Yup, those processed ones. That was exactly what I received here. It was a little too dry for my liking and extremely chewy, in a non flattering manner. I most certainly would not give this dish a go again.
Would I head here again?
Truth be told, No, I would not. Not because the food was shitty – it was not, I liked the pad thai very much but I already have my own list of Favourite Thai eateries, just like most of us do. Going to Fa Ying Street was just more out of curiosity and a sudden Thai food craving, also because I happen to be near SS15 Courtyard – so, it was convenient. Just one of those days whereby I wanted to try a new eatery.
