07.27 pm – Had dinner at Maa Roy Thai Food Restaurant in Abut Siti Lane. From now onwards, this restaurant is gonna get all my money whenever I crave for Thai food. THEY ARE BY FAR THE MOST AUTHENTIC AND DELICIOUS THAI RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER TASTED BEFORE IN PENANG.

The menu.

Not only their chef, but everyone is from Thailand. . When the waiters and waitresses of Maa Roy aren’t talking to you, all you hear coming out of their mouth is ‘kap kap kap kap kap’.

Ordered baked crab with glass noodles,

deep fried kangkung,

chicken green curry,

omelets with Thai local leaf and a

pineapple fried rice.

The raw cucumber and long beans that came as appetizer. The sambal belacan they served was DAMN HOT! If hot had a level of 0 to 10, the sambal belacan is 11. BUT it was delicious! DAMN delicious!

As they have only about 10+ tables in the restaurant, it’s a good idea to make reservations before hand. The phone number’s at the end of this post.

When the pineapple fried rice came, the aroma overtook our senses.

The green curry chicken was so delicious. And their portioning was huge.

The clear tom yam was pretty huge in portion as well. Lotsa seafood in it.

Delicous, delicious, delicious.

The glass noodles cooked with crab was damn delicious as well. I just couldn’t get enough of it. Man.

AND their prices are cheap! I’m coming back here to get my Thai food fix in future. Definitely worth every cent spent!

09.45 pm – Gossip Girl s03e03.

11.00 pm – Watched Liverpool’s ass get kicked by Chelsea. I can only hope that Liverpool drops to the bottom of the table and change to a manager that makes more sense.
