Thai Peppery, Asian Cuisine, Siam Paragon, Bangkok, Thailand

Thai Peppery is another casual Thai eatery at the food basement of Siam Paragon. (Ging Kalpapruek being the other one)  This stall is part of Asian Cuisine, which looks like a food court, but is really just a single restaurant with 3 different asian concepts selling Indian, Chinese and Thai food. We were a little worried because we saw so many Caucasians dining here, but the food turned out to be fairly authentic. 

The Thai Glass Noodle (130 baht) stir-fried with egg, prawns and mixed vegetables was our carb dish of the day (we indulged a little and allowed ourselves a carb dish a day) and well worth the calories. This was choc-a-bloc with vegetables, prawns and eggs, and the clear vermicelli was simmered with enough stock to be tasty and soft, but with a little bite.

The Sliced Charcoal Grilled Pork (180 Baht) served with Thai E-Sarn style northeastern sauce was very very VERY good. An absolute must-try here. It was flavoursome, it was tender, it was juicy and it had that delectable smoky finish.

The Tom Yam Goong (130 Baht) prawns with mushrooms in rich broth, chilli, lemongrass and lime leaf, unfortunately, was the only disappointing dish. It was too mild! Zero heat at all. This would otherwise have been a great dish, the broth had depth of flavour, and they were very generous with the mushrooms and prawns.

We also loved the Thai Deep Fried Chicken (130 Baht), topped with aromatic crispy garlic bits and served with a sweet Thai chilli dip. The fried chicken was awesome, it was incredibly fragrant and delicious, juicy and succulent on the inside while crispy and golden on the outside. I ordered another portion to takeaway.

While the Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables (100 Baht) with oyster sauce was generic and uneventful, this was a well-executed dish. Vegetables were crunchy and fresh, and the oyster sauce wasn't overtly salty.
