This Thai restaurant is located next to Hungry Jacks on Pulteney street. It has yellow and black signage, so it is not hard to miss. Just the name itself sounds Thai already, so I was very excited to see what this restaurant brought to the table. Now not having been to Thailand myself I am not sure if this is traditional Thai or not. The restaurant apparently is named after a famous street in Bangkok called 'Soi. 38', so needless to say it serves street food. I tried two dishes, both were quite delicious.
The fish cakes were slightly deep fried and served with sweet chilli sauce, it still had the crunch when they arrived at our table. I much prefer Thai fishcakes over western fish cakes, as I do find them more flavoursome just like these ones.
We saw the table next door with an interesting dish, so we thought we would give it a go too. Mixed seafood served in a young coconut shell. This dish not only looked amazing, but the ingredients were oozing out of the coconut.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience. The staff were friendly and I know that I cannot get this type of Hor Mok Ta Lay anywhere in Adelaide. I believe they also serve some amazing lunch specials. I wouldn't mind coming back and see what more they have to offer.
