Mrs. BH's first birthday...dinner 3 @ Sri Ayutthaya, Damansara

After 2 massive dinners, BH still wanted to take me out..spend time with his sayang ( an excuse to eat). The original plan was some restaurant near the Loft, KL...but I felt like Thai, so we ended up in Sri Ayuthaya, Medan Damansara. Had not been there since my maiden visit, a few years back, was pretty impressed, so dragged BH there..heh.



When we ordered, we went crazy, unable to decide what was good, we pretty much ordered one of every course..for appetizers..scallops, cook thai style.

The scallops were HUGE, juicy and the tinge of mayo used delicately to flavour them..6 scallops for 30 plus bucks...not too bad.

Next came our Glass noodle Kerabu (Rm12.90)...BH will tell you I'm no fan of Kerabu, but this one, was yummy! Just the right amount of sourness, and it wasn't hot, so...thumbs up from me!


BH has to have his fish, so we ordered siakap, thai style (RM32 for a small fishy)..I don't like fish, especailly river ones, and I found this very "fishy"...but BH loved it and basically finished up the whole thing! This thai styled steam fish came very close to the Teochew Style Steam Fish, except that this had a lot more lime juice in it, and with no buah asam in it. Very sourish and spicy.

Tom Yum Thalay(RM9.90)...though it looks red and menacing, it wasn't as spicy as I imagined. This was very tasty and had I not been stuffed by the food already, would have gladly drank up the soup. Also presented with a little hint of sweetiness in here.

Chicken green curry(RM12.90)...another yummy one...I had most of this as BH does'nt fancy green curry. The santan was just enough and I loved the taste..again, if my tummy had more space, would have finished this up too!On the right, the pineapple fried rice (RM12.90)..we shared one, in a bid to control our diet...this was lovely as well, a lot of cashews put in, served in half a pineapple and very fragrant.
Sambal petai prawn (RM18.90)...this one, tummy full or not, I sure finish! The reserve tummy ( normally only for desert) was utilised...the petai was just right, not overcooked and not too raw. Also, they weren't too old, so they weren't too hard, still nice and succulent. The prawns and the sambal were great too! Definitely both our favourites!

And finally...a very happy BH...taking his sayang out, before the sweating started..the food was that good! But I think, we ordered too much..no thanks to the waiter who said "no, just enough for two persons"...right!

Will definitely return, again for the food, and lovely ambience.

we din eat very much of the rice, but their pineapple fried rice was nice. There was another couple who actually ordered just one fried rice each. They were curiously checking out our table.... wakakakaka...

Second time I buy thai food, second time we ordered like a feast for 4-5 persons. First time being in Vichuda.. wakakaka.. the fish they gave us a huge one....
