Here’s one of my favorite little Thai food stall that’s tucked at the not so mysterious food court that is Ming Tien at Taman Megah. This little stall actually reminds me of those at Krabi, operated by a Thai lady who speaks a bit of Malay and Cantonese.

The stall operates from evening till late, and offers close to 10 authentic tasting Thai dishes – long bean rice, pineapple fried rice, belachan fried rice, vegetable, green curry, tomyam, sweet & sour siakap fish, kerabu chicken feet, and kerabu glass noodle.

If I was eating alone, I usually order their long bean rice (RM 5), it’s basically a serving of rice with long bean and chicken cooked in something that resemble our local Malay paprik style but with even more of a kick to it.
For a balanced dinner fit for two, I ordered a bowl of green curry chicken, Thai tomyam, and mixed vegetable (all RM 7 per dish).
The portion of green curry was quite generous, with plenty of chicken, long bean, basil and such, packed quite a punch too. The tomyam had some decent ingredients (some prawns, squid, lala), and you aren’t beat the price, but it could do with a little thicker flavoring though.

I also particularly like the way Thai prepares their vegetables, with plenty of fish sauce! This one came with cauliflower, broccoli, basil, and a few prawns. You could argue that it offers slightly less value for money compared to the other two dishes, but I’m not about to complain for a dinner that costs less than RM 25 for two.
Give it a try!
