泰好運 – A New Thai Restaurant To Try!

When people say they want Thai food in Hong Kong, pretty much most of us would recommend them to visit our “Little Bangkok”, aka Kowloon City. Needless to say there are many legit Thai restaurants around the area with some locally famous ones while some are more obscure, but I have come across and tried a recently opened Thai restaurant outside Kowloon City.

This new restaurant is a hidden gem at Sham Shui Po whose name literally translates as “Thai Lucky”. Having been told that the menu is created by their house chef who comes from and previously worked with hotels in Thailand, his passion is clearly visible after trying such authentic Thai dishes from him!

We begin with a huge serving of soft shell crabs in yellow curry sauce. The curry sauce is absolutely divine, creamy, thick, not too spicy but a little bit on the sweet side.

Satay skewers then followed, neatly plated and served aside a really strong-tasting and crunchy peanut satay dip. Both the chicken and beef are spot on whilst the pork is especially tender and succulent.
The prawns are halved and deep fried to golden brown in a thick batter, whereas the morning glory is classically stir fried with shrimp paste remaining crispy and fresh.

Alongside all the seafood, we also order a fried rice that has been made with shrimp paste, cured meat, eggs and pork floss, the combination of flavours is delectable.

After all, the price are very reasonable and the portion is definitely more than enough. The dinner is surely amazing and make sure to get a young coconut drink as well!
