Thai-Thani

Thai Thani | Fitzroy

If there was one cuisine I had to eat for the rest of my life, it would most likely be Thai food. I crave Thai food on a regular basis and always on the search for new Thai places. Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Thai Thani located on Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, where I was able to sample some of the most authentic Thai dishes that were inspired by the owner’s/head chef’s childhood. Here’s a photo diary of the dishes I tried with my friends at Thai Thani! Thai Espresso Martini and Spring Rolls Spring Rolls Papaya salad Mixed Asian greens, pomelo salad, massaman beef cheek curry and spring rolls Absolutely loved all the dishes we sampled despite being in a food coma earlier on in the day. The chef did not hold back on the spices and flavours and gave us an authentic Thai food experience. If there’s any dishes I would recommend it would be the massaman beef cheek curry as it was absolutely AMAZING. The beef cheek was so tender that it …

Jinda Thai

Jinda Thai Address: 7 Feguson St, Abbotsford VIC 3067 Phone: 03 9419 5899 Website: N/A Twitter: N/A Facebook: here Instagram: @jindamelb If you ask me to choose a cuisine to eat for the rest of my life, I would probably say Thai. It’s the complex and well balanced flavours that truly captivates me. Many months ago, I joined two of my favourite girl bloggers, Confessions of a Little Piggy and Gastronomical Ramblings for a Thai dinner at Jinda Thai. Jinda Thai has been on my to visit list for a long time, and the experience was truly authentic and would return on a whim. First up – Thai Pink Milk. What does it taste like? Strawberry milk. So if you are a fan of strawberry big M, then this drink is for you! I loved it :) Crispy spring rolls filled with tender minced prawns served with sweet chill sauce. Great appetiser! This was probably my favourite appetiser – sticky rice served with bbq marinated pork skewers and a sauce made of white pepper and fish sauce. The only thing I would mark this …

Mr. Nice Guy

Mr Nice Guy Address: Shop J, 535 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne 3000 Phone: 03 9973 1761 Website: N/A Twitter: N/A Facebook: here Foodie Partners: N/A Back in January 2012, I visited a cute Thai cafe in Carlton named Middle Fish, and have revisited a number of times to satisfy my Thai cravings, and to get Thai Congee in the early morning before work. Fast forward a year and 5 months, the owners Pla and David have opened up a new Thai Cafe – Mr. Nice Guy. The moment I entered into Mr. Nice Guy I felt like I was in a completely different city. Mr. Nice Guy’s artist – Torlap has definitely done a great job in designing their interior. I was told by David that their colourful tiles used to decorate the walls and the table tops are bathroom tiles imported from Thailand. The place is pretty small compared to their warehouse converted Middle Fish cafe, but the use of their darkened mirrors definitely gives the cafe a more open feel! Don’t worry, you won’t walk into …

Jazz Apple Masterclass: Part 3 (Final): Thai Inspired Jazz Apple Recipe

For Part 1 of Jazz Apple Masterclass, click HERE! For Part 2 of Jazz Apple Masterclass, click HERE! After making the Jazz Apple Nutty Loaf, I had a few Jazz Apples left and so I decided to come up with a savoury apple dish. I love my Thai food, and always have constant craving for Thai food so I decided to make a Thai Inspired Jazz Apple salad. From Alana’s masterclass, I learned that Jazz Apple is a very versatile apple and can be used for any dish, including savoury. If you read Part 1, you’ll see that Alana used Jazz Apple to make an apple slaw to go with her delicious Sticky, Spicy Ribs (Yum!). I really love Thai Green Mango salad (Som Tum Mamuang), but green mangoes aren’t the easiest ingredient to find at local supermarkets, and so I decided to use Jazz Apple in place of it. This is a very simple dish, and you can whip this up in less than 15 minutes and will easily satisfy your cravings! Hope you …

Ayatana

Ayatana Address: 97 Chapel St, Windsor 3181 Phone: 03 9533 8813 Website: http://www.ayatana.com.au/ Twitter: @Ayatana_Windsor Facebook: here Foodie Partners: Ting Tangy Nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of Chapel St; where all the cool hipsters go to shop eat and drink coffee, lies a sophisticated and contemporary Thai Restaurant and Wine Bar – Ayatana. Forget your usual Tom Yum Gong and Pad Thai, at Ayatana, Tony and his team will bring you a contemporary version of Thai Cuisine. To start, Ting Tangy and I shared a bottle of my favourite alcoholic drink – Moscato by Innocent Bystander. Back in 2011, Nick and I visited Innocent Bystander, and I fell in love with the fruity and light taste of Moscato. So when I spied Moscato amongst their long list of wines, I knew I had to get a bottle to share with Ting Tangy. For food we start off with a dish from their vegetarian section. At Ayatana they have a separate section in their menu that caters for Vegetarians. I’m not a vegetarian, but from time to …
