There are loads of Thai food spots in Hong Kong and one evening Jie, Grace and I went into one of them for a casual, delicious dinner. We went to a great Thai spot called Spice House in Wan Chai (right across the newly built Lee Tung Avenue.) I got there a bit after 7 and it was buzzing with people and an amazing aroma filled the small, no fuss spot. As we ate, more and more people came- only to be turned away. TIP: Go early, cause this place fills up quick. As one table leaves- another group quickly swoops in!
Thai Grilled Pork Neck Salad! It’s not just any pork- it’s a super duper soft grilled pork neck meat that’s juicy, tender, nicely marinated, slightly spicy and packs a real kick!! I loved the fragrant herbs, light and spicy marinade it had.
Thai Prawn Soup with Lemongrass, or better known as ‘Tom Yum Gong’ soup. I love the sour soup base. It’s this sort of hard to describe- the soup is sour, very addictive and has a lot of heat!
We got a variation of Pad See Ew with thick egg noodles, pork, lots of veggies, eggs and finally with just the perfect splash of sweetness. We gobbled up this delicious stir fried noodle dish.
A side of morning glory with salty fish, chilis and black bean sauce….LOVEEEE it. I love the taste and texture of the green veggies. Plus, we needed some healthy veggies for our meal.
Last but not least was the delicious mango sticky rice! We were really full but who says no to dessert? “No one ever!”
