Kalpapruek at Central World, Bangkok, Thailand

If there’s one thing that I really love about Thailand, it’s their food. I honestly don’t remember not enjoying any of the food we ordered at the restaurants we’ve been to in the Land of Smiles last year. One of those places we found truly enjoyable and really worth going back to is Kalpapruek at Central World in Bangkok, Thailand.

Kalpapruek is a high-ceilinged, chic and elegant Thai restaurant located at the Food Hall of Central World Shopping Centre.

We had dinner at Kalpapruek one weekday in October 2017 after hubby’s office work was done. Our delicious dinner consisted of Stir-fried Sea Bass in Black Pepper Sauce and Chicken Red Curry.

Stir-fried Sea Bass in Black Pepper Sauce, 400 Thai Baht

All three of us (hubby, son and me) gave this Stir-fried Sea Bass in Black Pepper Sauce the thumbs up! It’s a simple yet flavorful dish that had us craving for more. We loved the flaky, soft firm meat of the sea bass. Also, the black pepper sauce didn’t overpower the mild and delicate flavor of the fish, which made for a more delectable treat.

Chicken Red Curry, 120 Thai Baht

If I’m not mistaken, we requested for this Chicken Red Curry to not be so spicy so that our young man could try it, too. However, no amount of cajoling from us his parents would make him taste it because he was already content and satisfied with the Stir-fried Sea Bass in Black Pepper Sauce. Anyway, hubby and I enjoyed this to the hilt. It was for us the perfect complement to our sea bass dish. It’s delicious but not too spicy.

And because we wanted to explore more of Thailand, we decided to satisfy our sweet cravings at a nearby dessert shop after dining at Kalkapruek.

Ka Tunying’s Café at SM Megamall

Hubby has been bugging us to dine at Ka Tunying’s Café at SM Megamall as he has already eaten there with a friend and officemate. We finally got the chance to do that last July. What unique and catchy names they give to their dishes! That’s basically the first thing I noticed while going through their menu. I specifically like the sound of Pak! Bet Ko Yan and Rely on the Bangus, two of the dishes we ordered for dinner at Ka Tunying’s.

Champorado with Tuyo Flakes, Php155

Because our son couldn’t decide what he wanted to eat, I suggested something I know he’d like. We ordered Champorado with Tuyo Flakes for him. This is champorado with crispy pinipig (pounded rice flakes) toppings, served with tuyo flakes and evaporated milk. He seemed to have enjoyed the bittersweet, creamy and chocolatey champorado. The pinipig bits also added a delightful crunch to each spoonful of champorado he took. It might take a while, though, before he can appreciate the champorado-tuyo pairing, which I love, by the way.

Pak! Bet Ko Yan, Php225

Hubby and I finished this entire plate of Pak! Bet Ko Yan, which is Ka Tunying’s version of the Pinoy pinakbet. It’s local veggies (ampalaya, okra, eggplant, sitaw, squash and kangkong) with lechon and chicharon sautéed in bagoong (shrimp paste). This will nicely complement any fried dish.

Rely On the Bangus, Php405

Craving for Relyenong Bangus? Go order Rely On the Bangus at Ka Tunying’s. Milkfish is deboned, flaked, stuffed and fried until crisp and golden, with ketchup and atchara (pickled papaya) on the side. Nothing extraordinary about this fish dish, just the usual. We also didn’t get to finish all of it because the serving was huge for just two people sharing it (hubby and me), plus the sweetness of the fish coupled with the sweetness of the dip (ketchup) and side dish (atchara) could get cloying after eating a bit too much.

Overall, the food at Ka Tunying’s was okay, prices were reasonable, and the staff were friendly. On our next visit, I’d love to try their Cabanatuan Longsilog, which hubby says is really good.
