Took Lae Dee

Took Lae Dee is a chain restaurant in Thailand since 1985 and has been popular with Thais and expats. They are also open 24 hours a day.  When translated, their business name literally means "Cheap & Good".

We have 4 dishes from the Thai Kitchen with Lychee Freeze and their Signature Thai Milk Tea washing down our meal.

Lychee Freeze & Signature Thai Milk Tea - $3.80 Each

Pineapple Fried Rice (Khao Pad Sapparot) is also one of my favourite dishes to order if I want to skip the white rice. The plate comes with a good portion of cashew nuts, raisins, meat floss and shredded eggs. The taste was pretty decent. It lacked the Wok Fried fragrant. 

Pineapple Fried Rice - $8

The Green Curry (Kang Keaw Wan) can be served with either Pork or Chicken. The taste is not thick enough and lacks oomph. On top of that, the curry was a bit on the sweeter side.

Green Curry (Chicken / Pork) - $8

We had a chicken version of the Green Curry and the meat was tender.

The Thai Fish Cakes (Tot Maan Pla) come in a plate of 4. These snacks are good for sharing and are one of the recommended items on the menu. Dip them into the sweet and spicy chilli to enjoy.

Thai Fish Cake - $6

The Boat Noodle with Pork, better known as Kway Tiaw Reua in Thai, is one of my favourite soup noodles. There is a choice of noodles with either Kway Teow or Glass Noodle. The bowl was filled with lean meat and meatballs.

Boat Noodle with Pork - $7.50

It was a comforting bowl of food but I will prefer the broth to be more flavourful.

The Red Ruby with Coconut Ice Cream looked disappointing in its disposable container. 

Red Ruby with Coconut Ice Cream - $4.50

Nevertheless, the taste is rather standard too with some red rubies placed over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Though food from Took Lae Dee is pocket friendly and Authentic, cooked by Thai Chef, I find that its a standard fare. Pricing-wise, it's not cheap in my opinion.
