We had read about the Discovery Bay Christmas Market, and decided that it was worth our time to travel to Discovery Bay.
With the Discovery Bay Christmas Market on-going, plus the free ferry ride back to Central offer, we figured that we gotta make reservations for dining at D’Deck in Discovery Bay.
Among all the restaurants, Koh Tomyums appeared to be highly recommended. Our hotel helped us made the reservations 😀
Having being side-tracked with snacks and some Pokémon-catching, we ended up reaching Discovery Bay rather late, but managed to browse through most of the shops at the Christmas Market. There was not enough time before sunset to do any of the hiking trails, so we decided to go to the restaurant earlier.
Ms I had recommended that we check out this very popular Thai restaurant.
So after we had settled down in our ultra lovely apartment in Meriton Campbell, we strolled to Chat Thai, which was right next door, thinking that it was still rather early. Erm, apparently at 5pm, we were not early enough, haha!
After some confusion, a friendly customer directed us to tear off the number on a sheet at the entrance, which turned out to be the queue number. You could also leave your name and phone number, but based on what we saw, if you were not waiting nearby when they called your queue number, they would just move on to the next number 😛
This was a rather atas-looking Thai restaurant, with ATMs located within the restaurant 😮 But we wanted to grab dinner fast, before walking over to Docklands for a good spot to watch fireworks display, so we decided to just head into it.
We were very impressed by the endless queue each time we walked past, and this evening, finally, there was no queue at 9pm! Very hungry, so we attacked our food with gusto!
Seafood Tom Yum Soup
Deep Fried Fish Topped with Spicy Sauce and Hong Kong Collard Greens with Oyster Sauce
Green Curry (Chicken) with Rice
Deep Fried Chicken Wings in Red Wine Sauce and Deep Fried Shrimp Cakes
Crispy Fish Maw Spicy Salad
We had a rather late lunch due to the very heavy breakfast, and finally settled for Spring by Sanyod while we were roaming about in Central World. This appeared to be a Chinese-Thai fusion restaurant. Here’s what we had, and I think the fried items were probably the better ones:
- Seafood Tom Yum Soup: Not bad at all. There was a good balance of sour and spicy, so I didn’t choke on it the way I sometimes do back in Singapore.
- Hong Kong Collard Greens with Oyster Sauce: Pretty standard Hong Kong Kailan with oyster sauce
- Green Curry (Chicken) with Rice: This was just alright… somehow it did not quite have the “kick” to it.
- Deep Fried Fish Topped with Spicy Sauce: With the Thai spicy sauce, this dish was quite appetizing.
- Deep Fried Chicken Wings in Red Wine Sauce: Definitely one of my favourites!
- Deep Fried Shrimp Cakes: Another of my favourites, simple dish with yummy dip.
- Crispy Fish Maw Spicy Salad: This was very interesting, with rather unexpected texture and taste. The fish maw was deep fried till crispy, much like crackers, while the thinly-sliced squid pieces were deep fried as well, but had a more chewy texture.
With drinks, our total bill for 5 adults came up to be THB1358, inclusive of 7% VAT.
