It's been ages since I stepped into any Thai Express outlets scattered around the island. Sis chose this place for a quick dinner since we had to catch the Ponyo movie in less than an hour.
Of course, I had to order my favourite Thai dish of all time: Yam Mamuang ($6.90++) a.k.a. mango salad! It's hard to go wrong with this simple salad. Thai Express's version was well-executed and spicy enough to set my taste buds on fire.
Since the majority of main courses comprises of either rice or noodles, I opted for a simple Phat Pak Ruam Mit ($7.90++). This was basically mixed vegetables stir fried with mushrooms. I find it average tasting and the ingredients used could have been more generous to justify the price.
Sis ordered the Thai adaptation of a classic Laotian dish: Sen Lek Neua ($10.90++) which was stick noodles with sliced beef in broth. Beef seemed to be cheaper than vegetables these days as the chef was so generous with the sliced beef that my sis couldn't finish all of them.
Do you know that Thai Express is the world's largest chain of modern thai restaurants? It has proven its success with 27 restaurants in 7 countries (Australia, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Mongolia) achieved in five years. Come to think of it, I didn't see any in New Zealand even though it supposedly has one there. Nevertheless, I think the prices are quite cheap for a meal in a restaurant. Just don't come with high expectations!
