It was quite a while since we treated ourselves to sumptuous Thai food so we decided it was the time for us to explore. As recommended by our friend, we chose Imperial Chakri Palace as our stop this time to indulge ourselves in, like how our friend described, “exquisite service and super authentic Thai cuisine”. Of course, after knowing this restaurant is awarded as one of the Malaysia’s Finest Restaurants by Malaysia Tatler, we had even a stronger reason to come here! There are a plethora of dishes to choose from but we will focus on 3 dishes that won our hearts and we believe you should not miss out!
1/ Chakri Tom Yam (King Prawn)
We couldn’t wait to start our meal with the restaurant’s Chakri Tom Yam as it was awarded the “Best Soup” during The Malaysia International Gourmet Festival in 2013! We were amazed by the big portion of the king prawn when the bowl was presented. Thanks to the king prawn’s freshness, the soup had such a delicate taste yet filled with flavors as it was infused with lemongrass, lime and chili peppers. As someone who is a big fan of Thai food, I would say this is one of my go-to places to savor an authentic and flavorful bowl of Tom Yam!
2/ Deep-Fried Sea bass with Phad Cha Sauce
Another dish that tempted our palate is this Deep-Fried Sea Bass with Phad Cha Sauce. The whole sea bass was presented with a bowl of mouth-watering phad cha sauce (sizzling stir-fried herbs sauce). The fresh sea bass was meticulously prepared and deep-fried until it was on point. It had such meaty and crispy texture which totally satiated our taste buds and mingled well with the phad cha sauce (or pad cha sauce) that came along.
3/ Australian Lobster with Thai Sweet & Spicy Sauce
Another must-have dish that you should keep an eye on is this Australian Lobster with Thai Sweet & Spicy Sauce. The dish caught our attention immediately as the whole lobster (600gm – 800gm) was beautifully set with an elegant and eye-pleasing decoration. This air-flown fresh lobster from Australia had such a firm and buttery taste that made it a perfect companion to the restaurant’s signature sweet and spicy sam rod sauce (three-flavored sauce).
