Ever since my returned trip from Chiangmai, I have learned a few skills about cooking Northern Thai Food.
Social Media about food eateries had been abuzz about this new setup called Engleham 31 Thai Food and BBQ restaurant. Many comments seem to leave positive review about this place. So when I heard that there is a new Thai Restaurant in town, I dragged my partner to check out Engleham 31 Thai Food and BBQ.
Do come early though as parking space is limited, and it can be a hassle to get a parking space.
We ordered Green seafood curry, sliced fish stir fried with black peppercorn and chillies, morning glory cooked with prawn paste, mango sticky rice and 2 bowls of white rice.
I have to say that all the dishes tasted delicious though the taste was on the strong side. The portions for 2 persons were just nice, though if you are a big eater, just order more dishes.
Thai food is famous for its aromatic and subtle flavours and is often the favourite choice among all Asian foods. It combines the five fundamental flavours in all of its dishes. They are either spicy, sweet, sour, salty or bitter. Thai dishes usually made use of galangal ginger, lemongrass and coconut milk.
Thai cuisine has many regional variations because they are influenced by its neighbouring country namely Laos, Cambodia and even Vietnam.
Northern Thai dishes from my visit to CHiangmai is actually less spicy compared to Southern Thai but they made use of more spices, as more herbs could be grown in highland Chiangmai area.
Southern Thai curries usually contain coconut milk and fresh turmeric but north eastern dishes usually include lime juice for that soury flavour.
I thoroughly enjoyed the food at this restaurant. Our bill came up to RM64.00 only , including 2 drinks. I was told that the chefs are from Thailand. So there, if you want to eat real authentic Thai cuisine, make sure the cook is from Thailand “Land of Smiles”. Check out their facebook page for opening hours and to make bookings.
