What is Thaipas? Truth to be told, it is an idea of serving mini sized Thai dishes in the form of Spanish tapas. Opened by a Chinese-Thai owner, Siam 28 has brought us something very different from typical Thai restaurant. The food is technically authentic to Thai, but the way being served is elegant, presentable and absolutely perfect for sharing.
On each table, there is an assortment of dips. Hoisin, Thai red chili, green chili, vinegar, satay and tamarind sauce, all are placed neat and clean.
Coming to their comprehensive items, we start off with a deep fried Son-In-Law eggs. They are deep fried quail eggs cooked with shredded pork in a sweet and sour sauce. However, the dish will come better if the taro nest is crispier.
For a seafood option, the deep fried minced fish is excellently crispy, which is particularly enjoyable with a served along green mango salad that marks a spicy and refreshing complement. The bone of fish is also impressively crunchy and is delectably edible from head-to-tail too!
Favourite of all is definitely the Siam’s dessert. Unlike the usual mango sticky rice, Siam’s version is made individually and pan fried in egg batter. The mangoes are also slightly sour, which I personally preferred. While the dessert is completed with additional coconut milk, the amazing presentation is indeed very gratifying.
This place definitely worths a visit with a group of friends for a twist on Thai cuisine.
