Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Go Thai Restaurant at Atria Shopping Gallery for their wide selection of delicious authentic Thai Isan street foods, a region in the north-east of Thailand. Dive into the rich Thai cuisine with a plethora of offerings like Khao Kha Moo, Kai Jeaw Poo, Tum Thad, Phad Ki Mao, Tom Yum, Kao Gaeng Thod, and many more!
Upon entering Go Thai Restaurant, I like the vibrant and warm setting with decorated items from Thailand to give details to the interior. Mirrors on one side of the wall give this place a comfortable and spacious feel. They also have another outlet in SS2 Petaling Jaya.
Refreshing Popia Sot (RM8.90) rolled with fresh ingredients and garden herbs for the healthy bites. It is a popular appetizer in Thai cuisine because suitable for the hot weather there.
Available in spicy and non-spicy version, the meaty Sai Krok Isan (RM11.90 for 2 pieces), fermented pork sausage from Thai Isan, is typically eaten as a snack served with bird’s eye chilies, raw cabbage, and sliced ginger.
Be it adults or kids, this Pra Muek Thod (RM11.90), deep fried calamari is the crowd favourite snack with its chewy texture and crispy coating.
If rice is your staple, Go Thai Restaurant offers few delicious choice to satisfy your hunger with Thai flavours, such as Minced Pork with Chili & Thai Basil (Phad Gra Pow Moo RM11.90), Green Curry Chicken Rice (Kaeng Keaw Wan Gai RM15.90), Fried Chicken Rice (Kao Gai Tod RM12.90), and my personal favourite Fried Pork Slices in Garlic Sauce (Moo Khathiam RM10.90).
I am excited every time I see my fried rice is served with pineapple as the bowl. Fragrant Khao Phad Sapparot (RM12.90) with raisins to give the sweetness, picturing this dish alone is enough to make me salivate.
By the way, Go Thai is a non-halal restaurant. Hence, you get to taste their signature Khao Kha Moo (RM11.90) here, a rice dish served with stewed pork leg, half boiled egg and vegetables. A popular dish served by street vendors throughout Thailand, the flavourful meat is very tenderly soft in texture. Finish the whole plate by myself is not really a problem!
Inspired by a food seller in Bangkok who was awarded a Michelin-star for her wok-fried dishes, this thick crab omelette is called Kai Jeaw Poo (RM24.90). Made with 90% crab meat and 2 eggs, I really like its fluffy and light texture with generous amount of crab meat inside. This dish is so famous in Thailand, you need to wait for few hours in queue to savour this delicacy.
Be sure to leave some space for sweet treats as you would not want to miss their desserts like Sago Pudding in Coconut Milk (Sakhoo RM6.90), Mango Sticky Rice (Khao Neow Ma Muang RM9.90), and my absolute favourite Red Ruby in Coconut Milk (Tub Thim Krob RM7.90).
