Authentic Thai Food @ Sawadee 88, Kuala Lumpur

Sawadee Karp…..Welcome to Sawadee 88. This was an excellent discovery, an interesting place out of nowhere in Kuala Lumpur, the weather was perfect and most importantly the food was great. Sawadee 88 is located somewhere in between Jalan Chan Sow Lin and Cheras Badminton Hall which is actually accessible from these 2 points.
To find this place could be difficult and a worrying affair. The road leading to this place is narrow, quiet and probably meant for servicing Kerayong River. A railway line is also next to it where you could see Kommuter trains passing by as you eat.

The seafood Tom Yam was the best among all the dishes ordered (RM20.00).

This was a plain (white) Tom Yam soup the spiciness was just right and was fierily delicious. The other Tom Yam is the red type.

Green curry chicken in a coconut RM25.00

I like this dish too, Otak Otak (RM22.00)which is totally different from our local Otak Otak. It is delicious with flower crabs, squids, prawns and other ingredients in this superb dish.

Fried Siakap fish (RM40.00)in fillets and coated with Thai sauce. The operator insisted that we tried this signature dish of theirs. I think I prefer the Tom Yam.

Stir fried Kailan with salted fish cubes (RM12.00) was tasty but the vegetable was slight tough (an old Kailan).

Som Tham (RM22.00) was another dish I enjoyed, a wonderful Thai salad with poached squids was gorgeous and would order it again the next time I come.

And lastly a free of charge dessert - a nice Leong Fun to cool the body after a good meal of Authentic Thai cuisine at a secret hide-out of Kuala Lumpur.

These are the nice scenes of Sawadee 88 which I believe would look great in the evening.
