Go Thai @ SS2, PJ

8:00:00 AM

Thai food in Malaysia is known to be quite pricey. Take myElephant or even Sri Ayutthaya, both these restaurants aren't very expensive, but they aren't cheap either. At Go Thai restaurant, they offer selective authentic dishes at a very reasonable price. Mainly perhaps the restaurant itself isn't very fancy with minimal finishes but packed with plenty of decorative ornaments. Go Thai restaurant is located at the heart of SS2 along the SS2 Durian Buffet street.

The entrance

Their menu along with their preparation area. Those people are Thai too if not mistaken. 

Some of the ornaments and decor which I've mentioned. Pretty neat if you ask me. 

Very simple kopitiam style, nothing much to show but definitely comfortable enough .

Thai Longan - RM4

We ordered the iced Thai longan because the day was extremely hot. We needed something to cool off. 

Phad Ga Pow Moo - RM9

See what I mean? This plate of deliciously seasoned and flavoured minced meat with rice and fried egg costs only RM9. It's not exactly fancy per se but it does taste pretty decent. I would prefer if they were to use fragrant rice but for RM9, what could I expect? The minced meat was slightly dry but the flavours compensated for it. It's slightly spicy and goes amazingly well with rice. Fried egg is a nice touch. 

Khao Kha Moo - RM9

This pretty much is chicken rice turned pork. What I had on the side is pretty much pork trotter stewed to tender perfection. The fat literally melts in your mouth and the given chili sauce was quite spicy. Loved the flavour, tenderness and juiciness of the pork and the hard boiled egg was somewhat thoughtful. I'd wish there was more Choi Sam because it was extremely scarce. 

Seafood Tom Yam - RM12

Like in every Thai restaurant, a bowl of tom yam is a must. The seafood tom yam here costs merely RM12 and it was packed with fresh seafood. From prawns to squid and fish to mussels - each of was really fresh. Flavour wise, it was altered slightly on the sour-ish side, but nevertheless, it has a nice balance of sweet and spicy as well. The colour may scare you away because it's orange but the aroma and flavour definitely won't. 

In conclusion, if you're looking for an affordable place to have good food, Go Thai is definitely the place to go. They may not offer an extensive range of dishes, but the selected few that I've tried certainly were spot on. Loved the tom yam and its selection of fresh seafood and flavour together with the affordability of its dishes. Drinks are a little expensive but hey, at least the food is cheap!
