SuperThai

After reading PH's many posts about the delicious Pork Knuckle in Sweet and Sour Sauce at SuperThai Restaurant, I went there for lunch yesterday at about 12.15 noon only to be told that it is not available. The waitress was not very fluent in English so communication is a bit difficult. I asked if it is available for dinner and she answered yes because it takes a long time to prepare and cook it. So tough luck, we can't have it for lunch then. Guess next time I will have to call up to make sure that the pork knuckle is available before coming here for lunch. Oh well, since we were already there, we ordered other dishes instead of leaving.

Grilled Pork Neck with the garlic, coriander, lime and etc green dip - MYR28 nett. The dip is sourish and garlicky so I like it. I like the pork neck meat too as it was lean but not dry. The neck meat is marbled intermittently with cartilage, tendon and very little fat so it was chewy but tender. Very nice texture.

Mango Salad - MYR15 nett. I picked out all the red bird's eye chili so it was okay for me. The mango salad was sourish, spicy and crunchy. I also ate all the raw little gem lettuce, long beans and cabbage.

A bowl of Pork Soup - MYR8 nett and a bowl of Tom Yum Soup - MYR8 nett. Both are tasty.

We ordered steamed stuffed squid but was told again that the stuffings were not available so we changed our order to grilled squid. We were surprised to get two huge squids that were chewy yet tender, very delicious! We thought for MYR20 nett, there would be only one squid.

Grilled squid - MYR20 nett - is served with the same green dip as the one for the grilled pork neck. Just look at how small the normal sized fork is when compared to the huge squids.

We ordered 3 plates of rice which was served together in a bowl for us to apportion the rice ourselves among the 4 of us. Each plate of rice costs MYR3 nett.

I like the taste of ice coffee with cardamon in it - MYR5 nett - it tastes like it has fruit syrup in it. The other drink we ordered is lemon grass drink at MYR2 nett.

The place is small and cozy. We were there early so we were the only customers there for a while.

As this restaurant is on the 1st floor, we need to walk up this narrow flight of stairs. I would not have dared to enter this doorway if I did not know beforehand how good the food is.

The entrance to the restaurant. You won't miss it as there are many signs above and around the door.

Good news! The set lunch is available on weekends too and they are now open 7 days a week.

Total bill is MYR95 nett. Payment in cash only. Good price for tasty food. I will definitely be back for the pork knuckle. After this scrumptious lunch, we went for dessert at another place recommended by PH. Guess where? :D

    3. Other cuisines also do serve pork neck or cheek meat too.

  2. The grilled squid is a bargain. Such an extensive lunch menu. The cardamon coffee reminds me of Saudi cardamon coffee. It is served in small cups because it is potent.

    The less than desirable entrance does not always deter me from entering an eatery. I have eaten terrific food, sometimes simple food in less than salubrious surroundings.

  3. What language did the waitress speak? Thai? Here, you would have to be conversant in Mandarin to get your message across...like the one I had to put up with in my post today.

  4. I am glad you tried the food. When we ordered the pork knuckle for lunch, it took a very long time for it to come to the table. Too bad you did not get to try it. Ah! I know where you went for desserts!

  5. Wow!!! That bill is reasonable for 4 persons! All the dishes looked appetizing. I have passed that place many times and didn't remember to stop & dine. That area has parking problems on any day.

    1. I think maybe they gave us two instead of one because two dishes we ordered were not available.
