Tom Yum Soup @ Koon Thai

This lunch deal, available daily from 11am-4pm, is one you will love! Three courses, which includes a soup or salad, and a choice of appetiser and a main for less than $12!

The appetiser choices include meat or vegetarian dumplings or spring rolls, or corn cake, while mains include a choice from 12 popular Thai noodle dishes, rich coconut milk-based curries, stir-fries, fried rice, and vegetarian creations.

I chose the soup for the first course - a fragrant and flavourful spicy and tangy tom yum soup with mushrooms and tomatoes, served with a handmade vegetarian spring roll appetiser. For main, I chose classic Pad Thai - rice noodles, fresh vegetables, crushed peanuts, and large prawn pieces tossed together in a satay sauce, is a marriage made in heaven when made right, and this one was perfect.

While the service is fast, diners can take their time to eat, relax, and use the free wifi. In fact, the young owners, a married couple, are delightful and open to conversation about travel, food, and their journey here. I was lucky it was a quiet afternoon, so I had the chance to meet and speak to both. The wife, the chef, was happy to give away her recipe secrets.
