Pad Thai @ Hartamas Shopping Centre

My brother is a part timer (on Sunday only) in Hartamas Shopping Centre. He has worked for quite a long time and we have never paid any visit to his work place before. And one late afternoon, dad broke the quietness and said, ‘Let’s go visit to Hartamas!’

It was already 3pm when we got there. And guess what?! Youngest brother and I ‘stayed’ with bro till he finished his job. And we were fooling around in the shop. Of course we’d helped him out as the ‘few-hours-assistants’. Luckily bro’s boss was not around that day; else we would be …… ‘Kicked out’ from the shop.

Since it was my first time to Hartamas Shopping Centre, I surveyed the place and found there were a few specialty shops selling Japanese and Korean food and groceries. Ho-ho, I was glad to be here. Eyeing on those nice colourful packing of snacks delighted me. All I can do was to grab some to the cashier counter and walked out with plastic bags.

When came to dinner, we chose to dine in Pad Thai, Thai restaurant as I was a little tight on pocket money. Ahhh, spent too much in those specialty shops.

The restaurant is decorated in a way of wooden style with lots of wood crafted items displaced. And it is special to see that they use cloth and ribbons to decorate the high celling.




Chocolate Milk Shake. I have no idea why my bro wanted this. It tasted as just the normal shake-d chocolate fresh milk.



The Young Mango Salad was very appetizing. I am so in love with it as it had the very sourly and spicy taste. I still can’t forget the taste of it until now!

I have never come across with Apple Fried Rice before, so I ordered this. Cubes of green apple stir-fried with white fluffy rice. Additional of spices brought out the aroma of apple in the rice. It is also served with small serving of prawn and apple salad tossed in mayonnaise. It tasted good and went well with the side dishes, mango salad or the beef we ordered. it would be much nicer if added in more apple cubes. The plate came in an enormous portion at the priced of Rm 7.90 where both of us could not finish the rice.

Black Pepper Beef was claimed delicious by bro. I don’t take beef so I eyed on them while taking the side vege like onions and capsicums.

This restaurant serves quite a variety of Thai dishes. There are many more to try out. The place was crowded that day because Malays who were berpuasa started to fill up the empty places after 6.30pm and waited to be served. They have set meals too which come in very good deal. Both me and bro missed out the set meals menu, if not, we will order their set meal and add on extra side dishes. ^^

Seems like a nice place to have Thai food. The mango salad looks good. Too bad I'm coming down with a sore throat, have to get away from hot and spicy food lately!
