Three Environment (otherwise known as T.E.) is serious when it says "three environments", it hosts 3 different "venues" in one place. Housed in one of the shop houses along the bustling Burmah Road (a stone's throw distance away from Penang Plaza or next to Shunka Burmah Road), T.E. welcomes its visitors with a welcoming-bright, clean dining space... where diners can devour in a variety of Thai-influenced dishes along with a few Western options; walk deeper and you will find yourself in a mini bar, though not as big as compared to some establishments in town, the atmosphere is calm and exudes minimalist-elegance. In the day time, traipse the stairs up to the second floor and you will find Vin Stylin Studio (VSS), a hair salon for the fashionista. On the restaurant menu, though it covers quite an extensive of Thai-highlights, we thought the flavors were rather subdued...
[Soup & Salad Combo- Rm 18.80] Tom Yum Goong
[Soup & Salad Combo- Rm 18.80] Thai Mango Salad
Claypot Glass Noodles with Prawns (Rm 28.80)
Rolled Chicken (Rm 19.80)
Savor the best of both worlds by ordering the Soup & Salad Combo... which consists of a Soup (Tom Yum Goong) and a choice of Thai Mango Salad or Papaya Salad. The Tom Yum Goong was sour-spicy but lacked the seafood sweetness. It was quite flat on its own. The Mango Salad was alright, though I would personally prefer a more generous helping of toasted Peanuts.
For main, we had Claypot Glass Noodles with Prawns. It did not turn out as delicious as we would have hoped; it was a tad too dry to our liking... more like Stir Fried Glass Noodles in lieu of Thai Claypot Glass Noodles. The gigantic Prawns were however, plump and addictive. To add on the variety, we had the Rolled Chicken... seasoned and marinated (rolled) Chicken Thigh being pan fried and served with Potatoes and home-made dip. The dip barely registered any flavors... same goes to the Potatoes. The Chicken was well-seasoned though... but it was overly greasy to our liking.
