A new spot for Thai food lovers to check it out- Kin Zab at Noordin Street offers a Thai Street Food menu, featuring many Thai delicacies from southern Thai. The proprietor is from Hatyai and naturally, able to offer the best from Songkhla district. The menu features a selection of Thai noodles- Boat Noodles, Tom Yum, MAMA noodles etc with an array of Rice and side dishes. Some uncommon dishes like Yen To Foo are also available. Price points are reasonable but expect the portion to be smaller than expected. The place is air-conditioned and offers a comfortable space for a quick meal.
The Som Tum really hit the spot with a medley of sweet, sour, spicy and saltiness. The Papaya was crunchy and delicately seasoned, we chose the normal range of spiciness and we thought was just perfect (not overly spicy but definitely packed a powerful punch). The Koay Teow Kai Ma-Ra was something unusual, the broth carried a heavy herbaceous flavor... served with chewy Thai Koay Teow. The Yen To Foo was a little disappointing though, the seasoning was mild and it carried a bold Pork stench. We did not quite enjoy it, totally different than the one we had in Bangkok. We've also had the Boat Noodles- both classic version and Tom Yum version. We preferred the latter version, for its strong combination of acidity and spiciness. The classic version was a little overly porky to our liking.
