Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently had the chance to sample some nice authentic Thai foods prepared by the Riverboat Restaurant that just newly opened in Plaza Danau Desa. Furnished with simple decoration, the Riverboat Restaurant offered a warm and relaxing ambience for you, family and friends to dine in comfortably.

Run by Louis and his wife whose origin is Thai, the Riverboat Restaurant served mainly Boat Noodles as well as few signature Thai dishes that go very well with rice. Louis uses a good mix of fresh local ingredients and imported Thai sauces and spices in his delicious servings to ensure only the best make it on to your table.

Steamed Stuffed Crab (RM9 for 2)

Diners will be delighted with these stuffed crabs that imported from Thailand. Filled with a compact mixture of minced crab meat and chicken, this flavorful appetizer was one of the best sellers here at Riverboat.

Beef Boat Noodle (RM2.50)

I love the beef broth here that cooked for hours till thick and rich in aromatic flavor. Served together with beef meatball, crunchy fried pork lard, bean sprout, basil leaf, kangkung and Thai small garlic, customers can choose to have the glass noodle dish with fresh meat or soft meat (braised), which to me both were equally nice.

Pork Boat Noodle (RM2)

Slightly different from the thick beef broth, the pork broth was clearer with less robust taste. Similar to Beef Boat Noodle, customers can choose either fresh sliced seasoned meat or soft braised meat to be served in your bowl of appetizing boat noodle.

The boat noodles were served in small portion generally so that customers can try out different condiments and sauces to go along, such as the fish sauce, extra spicy sauce, sour spicy sauce, fragrant spicy sauce and sugar, which available at Riverboat. So, have fun to experience with few boat noodles till you find the best flavor you enjoyed the most.

Phad Ka Pao (Pork RM10.90 / Beef RM11.90)

A simple popular street food dish in Thai cuisine, this plate of Phad Ka Pao at Riverboat did not disappoint me with a fragrant note from the basil leaves. Highly recommended if you want to order the rice dish or you are in the rush lunch-break.

Prepared fresh from the aquarium, chef cooked the Lokan (stock availability depends to the supplier) together with Riverboat’s signature own-mixed Thai sauce, which matched very well with its plump and juicy texture in mildly spicy that will certainly tease your palate for more!

Steamed Sea Bass (RM35)

Fans of seafood cooked in tantalizing Thai-style? Sourish in flavor with layer of spiciness, the gravy of this steamed sea bass goes very well with white rice. I even drank few spoons of this highly addictive gravy, so palatable!

Tom Yum Soup (Meat RM17.90; Seafood RM19.90; Mix RM22.90)

One of the must order items in Thai cuisine, the fiery hot Tom Yum Soup, which was rich in flavors and full of tongue-burning addictiveness. Love it!

I like this stir fried Mixed Veggies that somehow can reduce the discomfort I felt from the spiciness of the hot fiery tom yam.
