Pranakorn: Authentic Thai Food

Stir-Fried Spicy Basil Minced Pork & Egg w/Rice ($5.80)

Homemade Fried Pork Cake w/Special Dipping Sauce ($6.80)

Thai Style Stick Noodle with Minced Pork in Tom Yum Soup ($5.80)

The ultra savory Tom Yum soup from Pranakorn had us startled, awake! And Ric waved off any further offering of it. Haha. Yes, the heavier seasoning at Pranakorn seems to be authentic Thai, and not tweaked much to suit the local taste buds. I thought it was a good appetizer, though, as i'm not having much of an appetite lately. And i love chewing on the thin, chewy stick noodle. The dry Tom Yum rendition, without the soup, might be the next thing to order.

The Basil minced pork was also more salted, but acceptable. Very tender minced pork in the Tom Yum soup, and sweet juicy fried minced pork cake, that can be liken to the taste of our local sweet sour pork ribs.

Steamed Thai Rice Cake w/Pandan & Coconut Milk ($3.50)

Now, if i could just delicate this entire post to the steamed Thai rice cake - soft, melt in the mouth kueh kueh, tasting layers of light sweetness and tartness at the same time. It was delish.

A simple street dessert, which often pales in comparison with the popular mango sticky rice and Thai Chendol. But no. We say you order this dessert, and start the weekend on an uplifted spirit.
