Been coming here for years. Whenever I wanted good, simple Thai food, something nearby – I usually just head to Bangkok House.
I usually like heading here when I want a lil quiet. It is the kind of eatery I am comfortable having a meal on my own. There are always people there but lets just say that the eatery is arranged in a way that there are quiet corners here and there, it allows you that ‘private bubble’.
My visit here this time was a lil different because the restaurant was surprisingly almost full, mostly with folks ‘buka puasa’. Here I thought that this was this under-the-radar kindda eatery but I guess I was wrong, lol. People sure do know about it.
Customer service is great. They are friendly and attentive. Despite the restaurant being almost full, food arrived pretty fast. Within 10 minutes, all the dishes arrived and I was well into my meal.
Kaeng Som (Small), 20 ringgit + Phad Phak Bung, 12 ringgit + Khai Jiew, 10 ringgit + White Rice, 2.50 ringgit
I’ve always had good food here. They have never disappoint, at least in regards to what I’ve ordered so far, lol. This time was no different.
This time around, I wanted something that was similar to Tom Yum but not exactly Tom Yum – so, I opted for Kaeng Som. Kaeng Som is a spicy dish cooked in “Asam Pedas” style with prawns and vegetables. Yummy! Just the right amount of ‘pedas’ and spice to get me going. There was about 6,7 pieces of medium sized prawns + long beans and cabbage. It certainly a yummy replacement for Tom Yum. I liked it very much.
Phad Pak Bung was basically “Kangkung Belacan”. This dish was the first to arrive and lets just say that I was already halfway through slurping it all up when the rest of the dishes followed suit. As you would notice from the the image, this isnt the ‘dry’ version of the vegetable. It is wet but not in an overwhelming way. You would still get plenty of the belacan flavor on with some gravy on the bottom. It had a bit of crunch and plenty of flavor – loved it.
Khai Jiew is basically their omelette. I order this almost every single time I drop by. No joke. I do not know what special ingredient they put in it – I just cannot resist it. It is just one of those dishes that complements any other dishes well. I would totally order it again.
Would I head here again?
Ooooo yes, Most definitely 🙂
