When Pas Asian cuisine can be relished in the comfort of your office or home without the hassle of cooking, then what more can you ask for?
We recently laid our hands on the newest entrant to the South/Pan Asian delivery outlet – MeKong Bowl. The delivery was on time with neat packaging.
Barbeque chicken dimsums: It is difficult to stop yourself when sweet tasting finely minced chicken is wrapped into thin dimsum skin and served piping hot. Though we wish that the flavour of the barbeque sauce was more pronounced. RECOMMENDED.
Pad Thai Noodles: Moist flat noodles drenched in a tomato based tangy sauce and served with finely chopped onions is indeed your culinary dream come true, but the presence of sprouts and vegetables was sorely missed.
Udon noodle bowl: Ohhh boy, where to start? Subtle tasting slurpy udon noodles served with juicy shiitake and button mushrooms, crunchy baby corns and bak choy leaves with a generous amount of sweet and spicy coconut based gravy – a maelstrom of flavours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
“Soi Thai” roughly translates to “Thai street”. As the founders of this wonderful delivery outlet have travelled across various parts of Asia and have also been trained in the region’s food preparation, they decided to set up Soi Thai as the non existence of quality Thai cuisine at optimal rates inspired them.
All their curries, marinades, sauces and pastes are fashioned in house with no addition of preservatives and MSG. You can actually taste the freshness and authenticity of Thai flavours in their dishes. Here are a few of them that I recently tasted:
Tom Kha soup: A tangy soup with the right consistency and coconuty flavour is sure to entice your taste buds. The presence of fresh vegetables – broccoli and carrots with shredded chicken is a lovely add on.
Chicken dimsums: Fine minced chicken grounded with yellow bell peppers and fresh coriander leaves enveloped in a light skin – melt in the mouth goodness.
Tofu and mushroom salad: Finely crushed tofu and mushroom but way too tangy – sourness can be reduced. A bit spicy as well.
Pad Thai Noodles: Excellent creation – a lovely medley of firm noodles, soft chicken, crunchy peanuts and sweet-sour flavour – what more do you want?
Thai yellow curry: Juiciest chicken pieces with cubes of pointed gourd drenched in a thick gravy with coconut milk as base and with a strong flavour of red chillies, black pepper and curry leaves. A perfect accompaniment to the soft sticky rice.
