Home Thai - Haymarket, Sydney
Home Thai has become somewhat of a regular favourite for a tasty and quick (besides the waiting in line) Thai food fix.
Situated on Sussex street in Chinatown, Home seems to be busy constantly, and there is always a wait in line, though it tends to move quite fast.
Iced Thai milk tea - I find that the overly sweet tea helps to curb the spiciness of some of the hotter dishes
Pad mamong hinmapan - stir fried chicken with chilli jam, cashew nut, onion, shallot, dried chilli, mushroom and oyster sauce
This is another default dish that I tend to veer towards, because I try and pick dishes that aren't too spicy.
Pad C Ew - fresh rice sheet noodles wok tossed in a soy sauce with chinese broccoli and extra vegetables
Love a good thai noodle dish, and this is a great version with the delicious flat rice noodles and sweet soy.
Somtum - green papaya with garlic, chilli, tomato, green bean, dried shrimp, peanut, lime juice and palm sugar
Fresh spring roll - with crab meat, cucumber, tofu, bean sprouts, egg, chinese sausage with sweet tamarind sauce
A really refreshing and tasty dish, however I do prefer Chat Thai's version better.
Gang Dang Ped - roasted red duck curry with cherry eggplant, apple eggplant, basil, lime leaf, red chilli, pineapple, lychee and tomato
And the hightlight of the night...
Deep fried bread sticks with awesome pandan dipping sauce
Needs no description other than it was deep fried goodness
Peanut cake - this was the bf's choice, and turned out to be a waste of dessert space (in my opinion)
Delicious mango with 3 flavours of sticky rice, drizzled in coconut - delish!
I recommend going early and having dinner at a nanna-ish time (6pm) to beat the crowds for this popular place.
