Restoran Pee Nong, Pandan Indah Kuala Lumpur

So many claimed to have burnt and left more than their share of sticky sweat behind. How can I resist such a sauna trip. But alas, it was the sauna that resisted my visit. Restoran Baan Nok was closed. Boo-hoo-hoo.

Since both of us were all prepped for a hot affair, we did not give up easy.
After scouting out the adjacent roads, we reaped our reward:-

Tomyum Gung. We went for the GENUINE level of burn but minus the santan ie coconut milk. Whoosh. *Wipe brow*

Somtam. Shredded young papaya salad. Lucky we went for LESS than GENUINE level of burn. *wipe drips off nose*

Salt Baked Tilapia. Crushed stalks of lemongrass and knotted pandan leaves were stuffed into the stomach. Skin slathered generously with course salt, it was grilled on a BBQ pit outside the premises. Best to go with the sambal that came with it. *open up new pack of tissue paper – tree huggers, bring towel*

Grilled Lamb Chops. Drools just thinking about it. That night we shared 1 piece. Next visit, there’ll be strictly no sharing.

Phitoy had rice, greedy me ordered Pad Thai. Not authentic but good. If they add in cockles, this may get listed on the Where’s Where for CKT fans.

Pity we were too full to even share desserts.

Paid with sweaty palms (cash only):-

Map on calling card:- Phitoy, ready to do comparison at Restoran Baan Nok soon (anyone knows if it's still in business)?
Bhling ith on, exclaimed his semi-cooked tongue & lips.

if i'm not mistaken i think Baan Nok closes at night.

while Thai Orkid opens at night. also authentic fiery stuff.

pity Phitoy graffiti-ed. =P

sc said...

oh, the juicy looking lamb! *drools* hahaha and the last photo's darn funny :)

Tummythoz said...

J2Kfm, saw Orkid was open but none of its table was occupied-wor. While Pee Nong was crowded.

sc, enjoy it while it last. Pouty man may not humour me for long.
