Special Combo

For lunch, I opted for the special combo, a tantalizing feast that showcased the best of Thai cuisine. The meal began with a flavorful appetizer featuring seafood vermicelli and crispy Thai fried chicken, perfectly complemented by a tangy dipping sauce.

Next up was the mini tom yam kung soup, a spicy and sour broth infused with the bold flavors of lemongrass, galangal, and chili. Each spoonful was a burst of exotic flavors that awakened my taste buds and left me craving for more.

For the main course, I indulged in the chicken red curry served with fragrant jasmine rice. The creamy curry boasted a perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spicy notes, creating a harmonious symphony of flavors that danced on my palate.

To cleanse my palate, I savored a refreshing cup of jasmine tea, its delicate aroma transporting me to the tranquil tea gardens of Thailand. And finally, to end my meal on a sweet note, I enjoyed a scoop of creamy coconut ice cream with crispy coconut chips on top, a decadent treat that left me feeling satisfied and content.
