One of the best things about visiting Thailand is their extremely exotic and flavourful food but when you don’t have RM500 to spend on a flight ticket, it is time to take a visit to Bangsar where The Porki Culture is located. After running their first outlet (Porki Society) at Sea Park for 6 years, their second outlet – The Porki Culture – at Bangsar is warmly welcomed by people as we could tell from their crazy lunch crowds.
The restaurant’s interior design is a refreshing yet laid-back with their colourful mural paintings of fighting fishes. They also have a wall arranged with fish tanks containing a variety of brightly-coloured fighting fish, this creates a very vivid ambience that is perfect when your refueling yourself during a lunch break.
The manager, who used to be a designer for 4 years before he started pursuing the food and beverage industry, positioned The Porki Culture to be affordable and accessible while trying to meet up to different expectations to different food. We were served their signature Porki Platter (RM47.90), Thai Pineapple Fried Rice (RM19.90), Thai Style Krapow Spaghetti (RM16.90) and Jackfruit Sticky Rice (RM8.90).
When it comes to the Porki Platter, The Porki Culture does to disappoint! From their grilled pork skewers to the spicy and sour Thai BBQ sauce to dip in was just amazing, the meat was well seasoned and tasted like it was made by Thai Street Food Vendors themselves. Next, the Thai Pineapple Fried Rice was an amazing assortment of flavours with their sweet pineapples, nutty cashews and our personal favourite. Furthermore, their Thai Style Krapow Spaghetti was extremely unique and left our taste buds on fire. Lastly, the sweet jackfruits stuffed with Pandan sticky rice drenched in coconut milk was the best dessert to top off such a flavourful meal. You should definitely pay this restaurant a visit when you are craving for some Thai food!
