Boran Thai Food @ Subang Jaya

Fans of authentic Thai fare in Subang Jaya have a new destination that deserves to become a frequent top choice: Boran Classic Thai Street Food has spread here from PJ's Seapark, launching its second outpost in SS14, serving up soul food by Chonburi-born Donut & her Malaysian husband Yang in a setting that's loaded with colour & character.

The couple's dedication shines through in every bowl, with much of herbs, spices & other ingredients such as sausages brought in from Thailand or painstakingly prepared in Boran's kitchen (even the bowls are Thai-made). Tom Sap Pork Ribs are a terrific introduction - a light, clear broth, pleasantly tangy & mildly spicy, aromatic with lemongrass & galangal, topped with tender meat; have it on its own (RM11.90) or with Thai noodles or bee hoon (RM12.50; our choice) or with rice & an omelette (RM13.90). If you prefer a richer base, the Tom Yum Noodles should hit the spot, with a well-tuned flavour that's lip-smacking to the last spoonful, rounded out with a creamy whole egg (RM7.90 for this regular portion; RM10.90 for the largest serving).

If you like pork, Boran's a solid bet - both the grilled pork neck & the deep-fried pork belly are beautifully tender & nicely flavoursome following 16 hours of sous-vide cooking, complemented by house-made chilli dips. The neck meat can be savoured on its own or with rice, a fried egg & pork soup (RM10.90). The belly merits its own platter, prepared in Boran's special flour mix, crunchy to the bite, lusciously juicy to the chew - a genuine star (RM17.90). Balance out the protein with a som tam platter - papaya salad taken to the next level with an array of sides, comprising Thai sausages, pork cracklings, crab sticks, boiled eggs, long beans & bean sprouts, mixed & matched with the centrepiece salad for an assortment of flavours & textures (RM14.90).

Many of the noodle & rice dishes are also available in value-for-cash set meals that include beverages like Thai milk tea & a dessert of tago, Boran's own-made coconut custard pudding, creamy with a smooth layer of water chestnuts & pudding as its base (the tago can be ordered separately at RM2.90 for two pieces). The coconut ice cream is a treat too, with enjoyably natural nuances (RM6.20 for a double scoop with crushed peanuts). Bolster your meal with Thai Singha beer; at certain hours, a discounted beer bucket is offered for every purchase of selected specialities. Many thanks to Boran for a tantalising lunch.

  2. I am truly elated to hear the Feng Shui master's words. I have been told that my bazi needs certain colours and very fiery spicy hot dishes to bring me luck. I have done that it's convincing! So I must head to dine at Boran Classic Thai Food. Not expensive menu I believe.

  5. Complete a touch of perusing on the web about normal sustenances to maintain a strategic distance from. Talk about the issue with these specific companions to take in somewhat more. Believe me, they will value you asking and may even share for what reason they are staying away from specific nourishments in any case. swatara creek inn
