Yee Wen Tomyam Thai Food Restaurant is nestled behind some tall trees and elevated from the road level. One can easily miss this Thai restaurant if he/she is not familiar with this area. Furthermore, the road in Kepong Baru have different local bird name (Jln Helang Sawah, Jln Bubut, Jln Chiak Padi, Jln Helang Laut) and without any sequential numbering. It is really hard to find your way around this area. I wonder which 'dung dung' and short sighted dude that came out with these bird name without sequential numbering for the road?
Back to the food.........
This restaurant is run by some Thais and it has been operating in this place for quite some time. It was packed with dinner crowd when we arrived there around 7.45 pm.
I like the way they serve the Seafood Tomyam (RM35). The earthen pot is placed on top of a charcoal stove. However, I was a liitle worried that my little over active toddler would try to touch the hot charcoal stove.
Anyway, the tomyam is really spicy and sour. The prawns and sotong (squid) are very fresh. It is full of flavour and this is one of the best tomyam I have eaten. Ok, this one made it to my good Tomyam list!
Nice and flavourful seafood tomyam soup
Everyone snapped up the Thai deep fried squid(RM25) before I could take the photo. This explain why there are only a few left on the plate. The batter is very crunchy and squid is tender. Thumbs up for this dish!
We had 2 plates of this deep fried squid........LOL!
I was a little disappointed with The Pandan Chicken (Screwpine)(RM20). It has a strong cooking wine smell. Need some improvement on the recipe..
I was expecting Cha Om (Thai Omelette) like the one I had in Khuntai when I ordered this dish. This is actually prawn and kuchai (Chinese Chives) omelette. I guess RM12 is a little pricey for an omelette dish.
There is nothing to shout about this Kailan dish (RM12)
I like this Prawn Tofu (RM15) and it's gravy. Really sweet and the tofu is tasty as well. I recomend this dish for family with kids that cannot take spicy food here.
The total bill for Tomyam Seafood, Pandan Chicken, Egg Omelette, Kailan, 2XDeep fried Sotong, Rice for 5 adults, 1 child & 2 toddlers and Tea came up to be RM156.60.
Khop Khun Krap..........
