Tanaphorn Thai - Kingsford

After an evening statistics class on a dreary Monday morning, food was definitely on the agenda.

Long discussions about what to eat followed, and it was agreed - dirt cheap (yet edible) Chinese food in Kingsford.

And hence, there we were, stepping into a Thai place. (what happened???)

Nonetheless, having settled down near the back of the restaurant, we chose our dinners and patiently awaited... and waited... and waited...

And, it came!
My favourite thai noodles (ie. chicken pad thai) came steaming hot and hugely piled on my plate. The menu promised "Thai rice noodles pan-fried with chicken, together with king prawn, egg...." for a mere $9.90. And "king prawn", in the singular, it was! It was still delicious and very filling.

Chicken pad thai - $9.90

Then came the Barbeque chicken salad ($14.90) that two of my friends ordered. A refreshingly fresh and filling salad with a sweet type of dressing and very yum was kind of the description I got from my friends. The fact that one of my friends who tends to be on a strict chicken and chips diet (and doesn't have the word vegetable in his dictionary) found the salad apetising must be saying something!

And lastly, the 'Pad num plik paow' (aka chicken stir fry in chilli jam sauce - $10.90) arrived, also steaming hot. The comment I got regarding this dish was, 'kind of like sweet chilli, but not actually sweet-chilli sauce', which I thought made sense given that chilli = chilli, and jam = sweet and hence, chilli jam must = sweet chilli.

Pad num plik paow - $10.90

In all, not a bad place to chill and chat after a horrendously boring and long day at uni.

Hahaha. Your logic is impeccable Glogz.

However that dish does look delicious! I'd like to try it sometimes
