Cool and refreshing Thai Iced Tea.
Thom Yum Goong – Hot and deliciously sour/spicy soup with prawns.
We had two appetizers: Our first one was Tod Maan Pla – Thai fishcakes with a dip that consisted of cucumbers and peanut relish. The next one is their Chicken and Pork Satay, which came with some peanut sauce for dipping.
This is People’s Palace’s take on Phad Thai – Stir-fried rice noodles with bean sprouts, chicken, tofu, and prawns. The noodles are slimmer than the average pad thai, and it has a slightly spicy aftertaste to it.
And lastly, a generous serving of Steamed Sticky Rice with mangoes, aka my favorite Thai dessert.
Well… It’s delicious, but the food was a tad bit overpriced and the crowd there was a little bit too… Fancy for my taste? But I would still highly recommend People’s Palace if you want to have a great night out with your friends while gorging on some scrumptious modern Thai cuisine.
Food: 4.5/5 (taste), 4/5 (presentation)
