Ghin Khao by Katherine
Here lots of workers and students come by mainly at lunchtime for their under $12 specials. About ten other bloggers have raved on about this place hence this must be really popular. The Eatandbemerrycrew liked it.
I used to come here in my early days as a student and thought this was expensive as. |This was the days when the lunch specials weren’t available. It was good back then.
I wanted to see what it is like now.
Not much in terms of the decor has changed. I loved the street style old cart and the lighting. Very authentic Thai.
The people there are also Thai.
Here I had their $11.90 lunch sets as well as an iced Thai Kopi (Thai style coffee). I can’t really comment much on the Kopi as I have never tried. basically it is the same as the Malaysian one except bigger.
I chose the vegetarian set as I’m not much of a meat eater. I do love tofu though. It came with clear soup, rice (a bit bland for my liking), stir fried vegetables (also bland) and spring rolls ( two lonely mini ones- three would have been better).
The spring rolls although nice were just a tad bit soggy. I loved the fresh lettuce that came with it. It gave it that nice crunch. But it could do with a bit more chilli sauce though.
I loved the clear soup…
EXCEPT it was a tad bit salty.
The veggies were cooked properly, but were just a bit bland. If only they put more sauce in it.
At the end of the meal I was offered free dessert. Normally $4.90 for a plate, but I was offered a rice cake. It tasted like pineapple. It was a nice way to end the meal.
I’d definately be back to try out the pad thai. If only they had put it as a lunch special even better.
