Streat Thai - Delicious Thai Street Food

I was first introduced to Streat Thai by a workmate who took me there for lunch one afternoon about three months ago. And since then, I've been back there a few more times with family and friends.

According to their tagline, Streat Thai serves authentic Thai street eats. I guess all restaurants, Thai or otherwise, will invariably claim authenticity. But I'll say this for Streat Thai - their food is delicious - and it's affordable, and that right there is a great combo.

So here are my thoughts on a few of their dishes:

Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken

I think it's safe to say that pineapple fried rice is a popular favourite and a staple at any Thai restaurant, and I almost always order it whenever I dine Thai. Here at Streat Thai, it's cooked with either chicken (RM9.90*) or prawns (RM11.90*). I've tried both, like both, but I do prefer it with prawns.

This baby is the bomb, and for good reason. It's bold, spicy and will satisfy any craving for a punchy Thai flavour. When ordering, let the waiter know how much heat you want - go easy or go crazy. Either way, the kitchen will oblige. Besides beef (RM11.90*), it's also available with chicken (RM8.90*) or squid (RM12.90*).

That time I took my folks there, my mum ordered this dessert. It was not bad. The mango was sweet and refreshing, and the sticky rice was OK (RM9.90*). I wouldn't mind ordering it again next time, or I might try a different dessert.

Streat Thai is located at Jaya One, PJ... and they've recently opened a second outlet at Tesco, Kepong Village Mall, though I have not been there. The Jaya One outlet is doorless with an al fresco concept. It's almost completely wall-less to one side with roll-up bamboo blinds and leafy green plants lining the edge, so what you get is a relaxed and breezy vibe. Really nice.

Overall, Streat Thai is a popular eatery and I like it. The few times that I went, it was well patronised. Serving pork-free food, they run promos regularly like BBQ buffets, Mother's Day specials and so on. To be in the know, like their Facebook page to get updates. And if you're a footy fan, you'll love this - they have a large screen TV for football nights. So if you're looking for a place to hang out on Matchday, why not there?

By the way, I heard that they serve a mean Tom Yam, but I've yet to try it. If you have, feel free to let me know what you think in the comments below. Until my next post, cheers for now.
