Tiffin’s by Chef Korn is a little restaurant located at the Mezzanine floor of North Court at Mid Valley, which is rather hidden from plain view unless you purposely walk up to the newish hidden area of the mall a level above the GSC cinemas (but at opposite end).

The restaurant is an offshoot of Erawan, considered as one of the best Thai restaurants in town by many (I haven’t had to opportunity to try it out myself yet), to be a more accessible outlet to the general public by the same Chef Korn Yodsuk.

The menu consists of mostly Thai street food offerings, but with higher grade ingredients and sometimes a bit of a unique twist. The restaurant does serve pork and is definitely not halal.

For our impromptu lunch for two, I ordered the stew pork knuckle rice (RM 19.80) while Haze had the beef ball noodle (RM 25.80). We also ordered the grilled pork neck for sharing (RM 23.80).

The grilled pork neck is served with homemade sauce and glutinous rice, and I reckon it’ll be a fantastic dish to go with beer or wine, and if you really finish up the glutinous rice, it could probably make it as a standalone meal as well. We really liked it.

Stew pork knuckle stayed true to the street cred that it should have, except for the portion being larger than what you’d find by the roadside in Bangkok. There’s also preserved vegetable, kailan, and egg with the pork.

The beef ball noodle includes Australian tender shin meat, poach beef, and beef balls in a homemade recipe broth by Chef Korn. It was certainly different from your run-off-the-mill beef noodle, but one that perhaps take a while to fully appreciate.

The prices at Chef Korn is on the higher side compared to the likes of Go Thai and other such Thai Street food restaurants, but the quality of you get in return does make it a fair exchange.

If you’re up for some non-halal Thai food, this would be one of the places to check out.

Other dishes found here includes tomyam noodle, pork noodle, green curry, pineapple fried rice, and more.

Discuss : KY eats – Thai Street Food at Tiffin by Chef Korn, Mid Valley

  1. I like the use of those cute test tubes for the condiments of fish sauce, chilli flakes and what nots….but what’s that with the Thai iced tea? Sugar syrup and…..lime juice?

  2. KY, Thai food restaurants here you know is pretty basic type but still people like it. Your pork knuckle with rice look so good wonder if I could make it at home? Since most Thai dishes are like Chinese.

    • Vickie: pork knuckle dish usually takes longer time to prepare, and getting those preserved vegetable may be a bit tricky but nothing a good visit to local asian store won’t help.

  3. Always wanna try this but I can’t find its location >_<

    • Choi Yen: haha yah it’s a bit tricky to find, basically near Kiku Zakura but opposite & upstairs.

  4. immature 2.0
