Best Thai restaurant Mr. T & I found this year: Erawan Classic Thai & Fusion Restaurant. We’ve been to the restaurant twice, first was on his birthday and the second time, we brought a whole group of friends to this amazing Thai restaurant.
To secure a table, you have to make reservations at least 4 days in advance. I’ve seen people walking in during weekends and were turned away because the whole restaurant was reserved. You are required to pre-order your meals two days before your reservation date in order for the restaurant to prepare the freshest (guaranteed!) ingredients for you. They’re very serious about their food and when they do recommend their signature dishes, do not hesitate to try them!
Tom Yam Clear Soup, spiciness level 2
I thought level 2 (1 – mild, 5 – extra spicy) would be harmless but it left both of us panting and sipping our iced drinks after every spoonful of soup. We’ve tried the thicker version of this, at level 2 as well but it was bearable due to the santan (coconut milk) mixture in the soup. Both types of soup had aromatic flavours and they were equally yummy.
Prawns with Petai in Spicy Sauce
Another mouthwatering dish, with fresh huge prawns, that left our tongues burning.
Green Curry Beef
I didn’t like the hardened peas but I did like how the medium-well cooked meat gave me an explotive green curry taste when I started chewing it.
Thai milk tea and raspberry soda (I think?)
Portions here are small but 3 dishes would be sufficient for 2 persons. The total bill came up to RM 130 for the both of us (nearly RM 600 for 8 persons on a separate occassion, for 10 dishes, 8 bowls of rice and drinks) — that’s a hefty price but worth it. In fact, Mr. T has just asked if we could go back for another round again!
Erawan, I have no idea why our paths did not cross earlier.
