What do We Like about Thai Hou Sek, One Utama? -The delicious fusion Thai foods. The clear tom yum soup was nicely done -The value set meal was indeed value for the money -Comfortable dining environment
Also ordered one of their bestsellers: Siu Yuk Tom Yum. The dish is good enough for 2-3 people, and comes loaded with chunks of roast pork and juicy mushrooms. The soup is everything a good tom yum should be: sour and appetising, great with rice, and spicy with a kick.
Siu Yuk fried rice at MYR 19+ (MYR 20.14 nett). The siu yuk rind is crispy but some may find the meat to be on the dry side.
Squid in Spicy Lime Sauce @ RM 37 Mild spicy, love the sourish soup base from the salted veggie and lime just add in the punch that is need. Interesting that they do add in chinese sausage too.
Not our usual order which is classic tomyum soup. It is a dish that is recommended by the waiter for Tom Sap Pork Ribs Soup @ RM 23.50. This is slightly more spicy than the squid lime yet love the heat at the back of my throat yet it is not too flaming. Just nice for those who love some spiciness.
Likes: Strategically located in the mall Dislikes: Expensive for street food and the quality is not even great. Service totally needs help - staffs love to throw plates on the table; is that even called serving? Urgh. Not sure if I want to give them a second chance.
Overall, it was a damn good dinner. Excellent service, gorgeous environment and it’s a perfect place to drop by for a quick dinner as the foods was served pretty fast. All our orders were served in less than 10 minutes.
It was my first time at Thai Hou Sek, a Thai-Chinese fusion restaurant, and I really enjoyed my meal here. Plus, I had a great time catching up with a close friend. And as usual, we over-ordered. For me, the food here felt more Thai than Chinese, though I'm not complaining, obviously.
Pad Thai with Seafood and Bacon (RM 22) is a satisfying dish and this combination is a version that makes this dish quite a looker with that pretty looking slice of crispy bacon. With the squeeze of lime onto this wok fried rice noodle, it enhances the overall taste but what was most enjoyable are the mix of crushed peanuts and raw beans sprout.
Oh yes, I've been a frequent patron to One Utama and more specifically, a frequent patron of this humble little restaurant since we discovered this gem!
