Siam 28 - Authentic Thai Food done Heartfully from the Thai-Chinese Lady Owner

 I love Thai Food so much,  much like I love Vietnamese food and beyond.  As I mentioned previously some Thai dishes are actually based on Chinese Chiu Chow home recipes,  when tracing back on history with the migrants,  and its influence is certainly felt either way – you can actually find many traditional Chiu Chow dishes in Thai Cuisine these days,  sometimes more than in Chiu Chow cuisine itself.   Here Owner Gigi also runs Torimen,  Bicho upstairs and Banker Bar.   She also used to live in Japan,  so that explains her special passion for Japanese food too.



Deep Fried Morning Glory or Water Spinach -
Dipped into 1 of the 5 home made sauces here..  9/10




The 5 different Sauces -
Plenty of Choices,  which one will the Little HKE pick today?

Fried Son-in-Law Quail Eggs -
Legend has it that this was created to either please the aunty,  or served as a warning to the son-in-law and if you don’t treat my daughter right expect to have your balls fried haha..   Coated with a tamarind sauce outside and served in a Bird’s Nest.   ~ 9/10



Seared Salmon with Lemongrass Relish,  Fried Rice – $118
Fragrantly done,  I actually quite like this recipe.   It has rice,  salad,  fish and it was balanced overall even for a Carb lover.  I don’t normally love Salmon but this recipe was very fragrant  ~ 9/10



Pad Tua Fak Yao Kapi – Green Beans with Shrimps Paste
Part of the Lunch Course.   Pretty delicious as expected and somehow this reminds me of Chinese or Malaysian cuisine…  8/10


Having a Coconut Juice - 
For Causeway Bay,  this was quite regional Thai food




Loving the Green Plates -



Roselle Flower Tea -




Pad Thai with Shrimps -
Served with eggs.  The dry rice noodles are still chewy and the sauce was predominantly Tamarind sauce based,  rather than Tomato Ketchup as usually experienced elsewhere.   Apparently all the sauces are made in-house here from scratch,  which really makes or breaks a Thai style restaurant…  This was addictive stuff.   ~ 9/10



Mango with Fried Sticky Rice -
The Fried sticky rice cakes are a Signature here,  normally they are just steamed!  The Mango was interesting as it was quite sour,  which suits me.  But from an Objective viewpoint,  it was probably too sour for everybody else expecting it to be ripe sweet.   I just like sour food Smile with tongue out
