Shop 264, G/F, Tin Sam Estate, Tai Wai
So I started a Facebook page and now – as you might imagine – I’m on Facebook all the time refreshing the page every five seconds, seeing how many people have ‘liked’ the page, commented, seen it… It’s a bit lame; I’m very excitable. The point is I’m procrastinating a little more than usual, so I have this short snippet of yesterday’s dinner to tide my readers over while I rifle through an excess of foodtography and notes.
Golden Bangkok Thai Restaurant is popular around Tai Wai, so – hoping to stick close to home, the supposed “dark side” – we decided to chow down here. Compared to the Thai we tasted recently on the island (no name-shaming.. for now), nothing bad could be said about this dark side diner. We’ve ordered from here before, for takeaway, and were pleased with the green curry, ‘Thai style’ morning glory and other standard Thai dishes, so we decided to get off the beaten track this time.
No.25-26 Hang Hou Village, Tseung Kwan O
Another trip to Tseung Kwan O! This time, for lunch: to try out the popular Thai restaurant we saw before we had dinner at Lardos just across the road the night before, and to catch some rays at a nearby beach after. Let me just say: to hit the beach after a big ass Thai lunch.. yes, this was obviously a day trip planned by a male, the gender who do not think to concern themselves with the issue of bloated bellies post-foodie fest, a bloated belly that would befall my sensitively female body ever so drastically and be exposed to all by the bikini I would later don. Suffice to say, I did not want to subject the innocent, aesthetically virginal patrons of Clearwater Bay Beach to an overwhelmingly grotesque food baby but I simply had no choice; for one, I could not not nom all the food, for the food was Thai and I love Thai food, and secondly, I was still as white as a char siu bao so a proper tan was absolutely necessary. In any case, all apologies to those whose sunshine I blocked with my food quadruplets on the beach that day. That said, would definitely return here if I’m around Tseung Kwan O swinging to the beach – no matter the gluttonous consequences. This review is about a simple, cheap, yummy Thai joint – with some notable foodie moments, mostly involving their chicken.
After that little disclaimer, I can now present our big ass Thai lunch. The whole meal would’ve been more than enough for four people (just shy of $400 for 3 dishes, the appetizer sampler platter and drinks), or two fatties such as Andrew and myself.
