Baan Rao @ Aman Suria, PJ – Tasty Thai food

I paid a visit to Baan Rao today. Located in the ‘old school’ end of Aman Suria, this eatery provides a pop of color within this row of shops. Having been around for a year, this Thai restaurant aims to provide authentic Thai cuisine with a touch of  modern delight.

The restaurant interior was pleasant and inviting. They had plenty of  quiet corners, well spaced out to accommodate all sorts of  formal and informal gatherings. Thai songs were playing on their audio throughout my lunch there – I actually enjoyed it. I remember during my various trips to Thailand, all I hear is loud, rowdy-ish music, so hearing slow, melodious songs were a pleasant surprise.

Red Ruby, 7 ringgit

While waiting for the main dishes to arrive, I decided to give this dessert a try. I have always a fan of Red Ruby, I simply could not resist. It tasted yummy. Plenty of thick coconut milk with a tinge of rose flavoring + red ruby (pomegranate seeds) + jackfruit.  I enjoyed it. Yum.

 

Pla Neung Manao, 62 ringgit

This was one of their popular/recommended dishes. It was delicious. The fish was fresh, cooked/steamed well. I loved the tom yum gravy that accompanied the fish, it was thicker than the usual tom yum soup I usually taste around here, which was great, it was spicy with a tinge of sweetness to it. Delicious. If I could change one thing – it would be the fish itself – rather than a snapper, perhaps a Tilapia would have made the dish even better. Other than that, this dish was awesome.

 

Khai Jeow Goong, 16 ringgit

This was basically an omelette with minced prawns. Delicious, especially when you eat it with rice. The rich, buttery taste just makes it yummy. The ends of the omelette were crunchy while the middle part of it was filled with bits of prawns. Worth every penny.

 

Pak Pak Bung, 15 ringgit

Just your usual stir fried Kangkung. A good addition to a wholesome meal.

 

Would I head here again?

If I am in the area, maybe I would. Would love to give their set meals and noodles a try next.
