|Halal Malaysian and Thai Food In Hong Kong: Spice Restaurant|
Aaahh.. when the craving for other than halal indian dishes starts to hit you and you yearn for some Thai dishes, Spice is one restaurant you should check out. Granted it might be a bit daunting to go through that dark alley leading to Knutsford Terrace and your mind might start to wonder about all the dangerous things that might happen to you.. but fret not.. you will not be alone walking up that dark alley, apparently behind that alley is a building quite popular with the dinner crowd housing a few hip eateries. Yes, the building looks a bit weird and you wonder about its security but hey, it's owned by JLL so, I doubt that the tenants are dubious.

That night, we decided to order Malaysian Satay, Tom Yum Goong, Curry Crab and plain rice and Phad Thai for the kids. Malaysian Satay came first, well, the meat was very generous but it didn't really tasted like Malaysian Satay, the spices used are milder tasted more like marinated beefs on sticks, it was nice but it was not satay. The peanut sauce is not too bad still a bit lacking of chilies and sugar.

Tom Yum Goong and rice came next, and boy was the tom yum fiery. The first thing that hit your tastebud is its zing, and after you have overcome that then you will come to appreciate its sour and creamy taste. Next came Phad Thai, it was meant for the kids so we asked them to omit the chilies, bean sprouts and what nots. The Phad Thai was tomato-ish and sweet. Although, I think the prawns were a bit too little in numbers. Finally, after a super long wait, came the crabs. It was a big mistake ordering the crabs not because it tasted bad, but because it was such a hassle eating crabs with fork and spoon. Plus, you don't feel comfortable attacking the crabs with your bare hands in such a restaurant :p So, yeah, even though the curry crab was a delicious dish, we didn't enjoy it that much cos of the hassle.

On the way back, while trying to get a cab, we passed by a small fruit shop and stock up on some fruits for our next day breakfast :)
