Planning a wedding is nothing like what I expected. I guess, I've always dreamed of having a small practical DIY style wedding and not the large 220ish guest reception that we inevitably seem to be heading towards, so planning hasn't been as smooth sailing as I would've liked. The boy and I are the epitome of OPPOSITE. No joke. He wants a large modern wedding and I want a small vintage, diy wedding. He wants a hummer limo and I want a kombi limo. Even though we don't see eye to eye on a lot of things, one thing we do agree on, is Thai Food!
We both love it! There a place in Fairfield (Yum Sab - Laos and Thai) that we frequent quite regularly and it has the most amazing dried beef. Pair with sticky rice and you've got the perfect snack. Excuse me while I mop the pool of drool forming on the table in front of me.
Seriously good stuff!
But, today it's all about the new Thai joint at Regent Place, Senyai. After an appointment with our photographer, the boy and I felt a little peckish, so we happily walked along George Street (cinema side) and stumbled across the entry into to the wonderful world of eateries nestled in Regents Place. Riding the escalators down, and past MissChu (already noted to try) we peered into the back entry of Senyai and found a table full of Thai women, singing along to the Thai songs playing in the background. Ok - you can't get anymore evidence than that. This will be a great place to eat!
"Thai Master Chef Nu", hasn't disappointed. The menu has so much variety and everything sounds so delicious! I love how the menu looks like a school notebook. Every detail has been thought over.
We settle on Po Pia Jaan - Crispy Prawn Pancakes for entree, Bamee Ped - thin egg noodles with duck, choy-sum in a spiced duck soup (me),Guay Tio Nua - thing rice noodles with slow braised beef in a beef soup (him), Somtum Thai - Traditional Thai green Papaya salad with chilli, tomato and peanuts, and of the Roti Grob - Thai Pancake with an extra scoop of ice-cream.
Po Pia Jaan - Crispy Prawn Pancakes
Although not really a pancake, the flavours in the sweet syrupy sauce wonderfully compliments prawn pancake. The boy doesn't eat prawns, so I gleefully chow down on his portion as well! ;)
Guay Tio Nua - thing rice noodles with slow braised beef in a beef soup
The soup is very rich and flavourful. The beef is so tender that it breaks apart at the slightest touch of your fork. Just how braised beef should be!
Bamee Ped - thin egg noodles with duck, choy-sum in a spiced duck soup
If you're not a fan of blood jelly, then you may not like this dish. There was no mention of it on the menu, so I was surprised to discover it in my soup.
Roti Grob - Thai Pancake with an extra scoop of ice-cream
THE MOST PERFECT way to end a meal. The roti grob doesn't usually come with ice-cream, but it is definitely worth asking for. YUM!
I thoroughly enjoyed this meal and will definitely visit again to try more of the menu.
