Samosorn Thai has a Chat Thai sign in front of their store so I'm wondering if they have recently bought into the franchise or they are deceiving local patrons who recognise the brand.
Samosorn Thai is located at the bottom of the Pitt St Mall Food court. For a long time I thought this was Chat Thai until I had a closer look at the receipt. I stop by for a casual lunch and was blown away by their amazing Thai flavours. WOWzer.
The top photo of the drink was a Lodt Shong Singapore drink. It's a sugary and sweet milky drink with jelly strands and is topped with shaved ice. It's a popular asian drink and really tames the tongue if you've had a bit of spice. I love it.
There's a lot of uncommon and unrecognisable dishes on their menu. I read the English translations and order the Grapao Mhu Grob ($13.90, above) which was a crunchy pork dish that is topped with egg, coriander and had bean pieces.
I ordered the Padt Nahm Prik Poh with chicken ($14) which is a noodle dish with cabbage and cashews.
Highlights: That pork with the Grapao Mhu Grob dish was AMAZING. The little crunchy pork bits were infused with a spicy, zesty flavour that was difficult to resist. With the rice, egg and coriander, the meal was great. The other dish was really tasty too, rice noodles in a soy based sauce.
Cons: The portions were probably a bit smaller compared to other Thai eateries but this wouldn't be a deterrent.
Price: $15ish per main
Location: Bottom of Pitt St, Food Court.
Opening Hours: 10am to 9pm daily
Summary: Lisa's Rating: Check it out if you want big thai flavours and want to try something different (skip the pad thai)
