Last Saturday, after went for movie Nova Palace Cinema at Rundle Street, we went to Henley Beach for dinner. My first movie in the cinema in Adelaide with the ticket I got from my first ever contest prize from the uni, my first Italian movie, my first visit to Henley Beach, and my first Thai cuisine in Adelaide with my first two male Italian friends! So many first! However, we didn’t exchange phone numbers, they’re my friend’s friend, we went on double date ;p Also, the most expensive meal I had! -.-” So… Broke! Broken the record of Wasai.
We’re there at around 5pm. It was quite chilly due to the sea breeze. Before dinner, we went for a round of pool while waiting for the restaurant to open its door. It was my first time playing pool too!
Then, we went to Thai Orchid Restaurant at Henley Beach.
Left: Mixed EntrÃ©e ($25.00), mixed platter for two, all foods are chosen by the chef. It’s so huge, just having this will be good enough for two average eater. Everything on the plate was great! There’s Gai Hor Bai Toey aka Pandan Chicken, spicy seafood and beef salad, and vegetable in batter.
Right: Lemongrass Quail ($9), grilled marinated quail served with picked vegetables and black pepper sauce. NICE! My first time having quail ;p
Left: Gai Yang aka Grilled Chicken ($18), chicken breast marinated with lemon grass and aromatic herbs, served with tamarind sauce. This tasted as it should.
Right: Ta Krai Nuer aka Lemongrass Beef ($18), beef cooked with special blended sauce, flavoured with lemongrass and coconut milk. OMG! Damn thick and yummy!
Left: Pla Lard Prik aka Chilli Fish ($25), boneless whole barramundi deep fried and topped with chilli paste and coconut milk. So sinful! It’s not spicy at all, was expecting it to be quite spicy but it was quite delicious.
Right: Another view of the beach.
The bill came to a total of $166+ (inclusive of some beers for the guys) for 4 persons! -.-” GOSH! Almost got heart attack from it instead of getting heart attack from the blocked artery due to the rich, thick, creamy food ;p
The food was overall very good but the price… *GULP* a bit too expensive for me.
