Krung Thep Thai Cuisine @ Lorong Selamat, Georgetown, Penang.

Most Penangites have a soft spot for Thai food, the fact that we geographically near to The Land of Smiles puts our palates nearer to their delicacies. Krung Thep Thai Cuisine is one of the latest Thai food joints in heart of Georgetown. It's easy to miss this quiet restaurant, probably overshadowed by the happening neighbors. The air-conditioned restaurant has a simple, casual setting but the menu is far more interesting than its dining atmosphere. It has quite a number of classic Thai eats, from Rice dishes to Noodles, to Thai Salad, stir-fries and desserts. The wallet-watchers would be glad to know that it does not break the bank dining here, a plate of Thai Fried Rice is as low as Rm 8.90 here; making it a suitable stop to satiate your cravings for hot and spicy Thai food.

Thai Chicken Feet Salad (Rm 11.90)

Thai Claypot Glass Noodles with Prawns (Rm 12.90)

Pad Thai (Rm 8.90)

Pad Kha Pao Seafood (Rm 15)

To whet up the appetite, we had Thai Chicken Feet Salad, a wonderful concoction of deboned Chicken Feet, raw Mango, Onions, Coriander, Spring Onions, Cherry Tomatoes... dressed in an appetizingly spicy dressing. The crunchy Chicken Feet with bold, addictive flavors would left you yearning for more. We were pleasantly surprised that the Claypot Glass Noodles was priced affordably at Rm 12.90. The portion was good enough for 1 and it comes with 3 Prawns. The flavors were spot on and if you would prefer it to have a gentle spicy kick, top it off with some of their Sambal Belacan. Pad Kha Pao Seafood was our favorite pick that evening, the Basil-factor was bold and the dish was well-seasoned. The Long Beans were crunchy and the Seafood was cooked to perfection, we enjoyed the dish with the noodles. Pad Thai on the other hand, was less-impressive... might be a little overly greasy to our liking; also, it could be spicier and more flavorful.
