Samet Thai

Finally a normal sized bowl of Thai Boat Noodle - MYR6.90 - with thin Thai Kuey Teow. Very delicious with lots of pork meat, pork livers, pork meat balls and a strong taste of Thai herbs.

For those who prefer more flavour, they can add these condiments (sugar, fish sauce, chili flakes) to their Thai Kuey Teow.

The new menu says that this is Pork Leg Rice - MYR9.90 - I find this to be good value for money because there is a lot of pork meat here and one whole braised hard boiled egg.

Bamboo Chest nut drink - MYR3.50 - Total bill includes 5% service charge but no govt. tax.

Thai Kopitiam has come up with a new menu and a change of name. It is Samet Thai restaurant now.

  4. I would have a tough time deciding which one I want - the noodle or pork leg? Both are good and would warrant two visits.

  6. one food I miss in Thailand is not their koay teow but this "kaa moo" (the pig trotter rice).. indeed very delicious, though I would always ask to be given the lean meat instead, haha.. maybe it's the gravy I like, I don't need the meat but probably the gravy and egg will do and I can wallop the whole plate of rice.. hihihi

  8. First Boat Noodle....then got Spoon Noodle....don't know what's next. All just a trend, will probably fade. Haven't tried any...maybe when the insane queue dies down...hehe! The broth looks thick and delicious...and 'barely cooked' pork liver is yum!

  11. The Thais enjoy their kuaw tiaw very much I discovered during my maiden Thailand trip in March. They call kuaw tiaw noodles! Much to our surprise when we made orders. Lol.

    The pork leg rice looks tasty. Reminded me of our Kuching pork leg rice. Look similar.
