Craving for Thai but not quite in the mood for Tom Yam or kerabu? Well, if you're in the vicinity of Bayan Lepas, Penang, passing by Summerton, you can opt to join the bandwagon chasing after this new Thai boat noodle trend in Thai Hao Chi Boat Noodle shop.
First of its kind in the island of Penang, Thai Hao Chi will allow customers to look through the lenses into the dish that shared much historical background with its place of origin, Thailand. The menu comprised of a simple selection of noodles (either Bee Hoon or Thailand's fine Kuey Teow) which can be served dry or soup-based according to preference with choice of meat divided between chicken and pork. Served in a porcelain bowl, the portion is made enough for one bite -courtesy of Thai heritage.
In-house snacks are also available, revolving around Thailand's rich culinary diversity. Customers can opt to have the Partpert Kai (Curry Chicken) and also Khengkiau Kai (Green Chicken Curry) to go along with their noodle dishes. And if you still have space for dessert, have a go at the in-house Tab Tim Krob (Water Chestnuts in Syrup with Cold Coconut Milk) for a refreshing change of pace.
Prices of the noodles are set at RM1.90 per bowl so you can have a go at a few different kinds of combinations. Due to the labor-extensive nature in preparation of the boat noodles, rate of service varies throughout the operation hours, so do take that into account when patronizing this particular boat noodle outlet.
