Green Peppercorn, Fairfield

Green Peppercorn is the Thai foodgasm heaven in the West.  A new Thai favourite of mine. It's so popular that you may be queuing here longer than any line at Ryo's or Jamie's Italian so my advice is to get there at 5:25pm on a Saturday night so you can be there to join the queue before it opens.  I also suggest going with a few friends so you have plenty of choice when it comes to sharing meals.

Now prepare yourself for a banquet of delights and food heaven.

For entree, I had a bit of the satay chicken skewers (4 for $10.90) and also the vegetable curry puffs (4 for $8.90).  Satay chicken is always a good starter but I really liked the vegetable curry puffs with sweet chili sauce. I loved the crumb on the curry puffs. Yum.  Look at that satay sauce!

I came here with three other people and we all agreed that the stand out main of the night was the Masaman beef curry ($16.90).  Think perfectly cooked, melt in your mouth braised chunky tender beef in a thick mild curry with sweet potatoes, peanuts and spices of star anise and cinnamon. It was like a smooth waltz in your mouth. Delicious!

The Pad Thai with chicken was good value at $12.90.  Beautifully cooked and seasoned glass noodles with all the trimmings including a mountain of bean sprouts, tofu, peanuts and sugar/chili to the side.

The very noodley Pad See Eww with beef (above at $12.90) was amazing! With a big splash of sugar, sweet soy sauce flavour, the flat rice noodles were amazing and complemented all the trimmings of egg and vegetables. Perfect for those who are not spice fans. I loved it!

Another popular dish for the non-spice fans would be the Pad Cashew Nut Stir fry with chicken ($12.90).  The dish has oriental vegetables in a chili jam cashew nut sauce. A nice dish.
