Settled by the bluer than blue sea, enthralled by aromas of steaming jasmine rice, coconut cream and authentic Thai spices, I can't think of a better place to be than this tranquil beach in Thailand. A moment where the whispering placid breeze teases the sensation of vibrant flavours of Thai cuisine massaging my palette…then all of a sudden, the "clink," of cheering glasses yank me from my reminiscing of Thailand to a quaint little restaurant in Melbourne. In a daze I search the space, dumbfounded that I am actually in Trinitas Thai restaurant.
Although a long way from mainland Thailand, just the simple aroma of Trinitas' food is enough to carry me away to my memories of holidaying in the beautiful country. Accompanied by the gorgeous candlelit smile of my girlfriend and a modern, relaxed, boutique-like décor, Trinitas left my mind to unwind and kept my tastebuds busy.
Let's face it; there is an array of Thai restaurants in Melbourne but very few are able to fuse traditional and contemporary cuisine, showcasing the fragrance of Thailand in the trendy urban streets of Melbourne. Situated at 955 Burke Road, Camberwell, Trinitas delivers a menu coloured with beautiful Thai dishes, categorised into 'Traditional, Contemporary and Fusion.'
Hands down the tastiest satay chicken skewers in Melbourne! The cosy restaurant also offers a variety of curries from the milder to excitingly spicy, as well as varieties of tasty rices, noodles, roti breads and desserts (no MSG or enhancers whatsoever!). Wine is plentiful along with other beverages designed to enrich your dining pleasure… and for the weak, a glass of water with a splash of lemon from Trinitas is perfect for when the heat is on.
The effervescent smiles of Trintas' friendly staff are but a bonus, and chivalry sings proud with the simple pleasure of having the door opened for you with a warm 'thank you and goodbye' as you leave.
Definitely book in advance when you decide to try the Trinitas experience, if you have not already. Trinitas accept all major credit cards and are open 6pm to 10pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, 6pm to 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays, as well as for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays. Thai food and restaurants are of the many, but there is only one Trinitas… go on and treat your tastebuds.
