Pad Thai

It's nice meeting up with K and N in Kong Kong cos we always get to have Thai food and they know all the good places to go. This time they suggested a place on top of Delaney's in Wan Chai.

We started off with a pork and glass noodle salad, one of my favourite dishes. If I could make salad like this I would be having salad everyday! Loved the punchy dressing which was spicy and slightly sour at the same time. I liked the fact that it didn't have too much fish sauce in it, which could be overpowering.

Our pad Thai came wrapped in an egg omelette. It caused a few wows from us. It was nicely cooked with quite a lot of prawns and it wasn't too greasy.

Pork jungle curry. I think the jungle part means mixed vegetables. A nice substitute to a green curry.

Stir-fried vegetables. Usually I'm not too keen on the mixed vegetable dishes as they are usually some soggy bits thrown together in a dodgy sauce. This one was actually rather nice, we got crunchy broccoli, kale, baby corn and Chinese mushrooms.

Our starter fish cakes arrived last. We could probably do without them as they were not all that nice anyway. Just like any regular fish cake: slightly chewy and you wouldn't know it's a fish cake if it wasn't for the faint fishy taste.
