On NYE, C and I headed to Mutiara Damansara area so that we could be early to grab a parking spot and catch a movie to kill some time before the countdown at night. We hadn't had lunch and C suggested going Thai. Besides Sutra (which I reckon is pricey), Thai Express was the only choice and since we both decided to give this place a try.
Thai Express is pretty easy to locate with all the striking colors and situated just next to Baskin Robbins. Although there weren't a crowd, the service was really bad! One look at the waiters and you can see why. After we got seated, there wasn't anyone to bring us the menu, we had to get it ourselves! After browsing through the menu and ready to order, again the waiters seem to be very preoccupied with something else. Urgh, this calls for some "minus points" even if the food taste damn good.
Seafood Tom Yum Soup- RM12.90
Any Thai meal will not be complete without the Tom Yum Soup! Thai Express's version is not too spicy and won't make you choke after a spoonful. It also has a considerable serving of squids and prawns. It makes quite a good appetizer.
Thai Green Curry Chicken
The Thai Green Curry Chicken did not disappoint either. It went really well with the white rice. I think C really enjoyed it as he polished the bowl off!
Soft Shell Crab Glass Noodles- RM20++
I am always attracted to anything on the menu that reads SOFT SHELL CRAB. C, knowing how much I love my crabs, suggested we should order this. It's one of the priciest item on the menu. The dish arrived in claypot style, with 2 pieces of soft shell crab. The glass noodles tasted alright while the crab was just how soft shell crab should be.
Belacan Long Beans
The belacan long beans was ok too. Actually the food was above my expectations after encountering with the bad service. I thought with service this bad, the food won't taste any better but it turns out that the food is (edible nonetheless) quite okay.
Iced lemongrass & Thai Iced Tea- RM5.90 each
I think it's recommended to share a drink as I couldn't finish mine! The food aren't all that spicy so I guess it's ok to share. Many said the food here is abit pricey (the drinks are), well I think that's just the standard pricing you'll get when you're dining in The Curve area.
Guess where we're heading for our dinner tonight! Somewhere that offers... foie gras!
