說起來也奇怪了!自從懷孕之後就常常吃泰國菜(懷孕前都還沒那麼常吃)。我還在笑說,這都吃到北鼻都快變成泰國人啦!

這一陣子因為毛起來吃泰國菜,繼上次跟天仙爸媽吃過泰鑽之後,就想找時間來瓦城踢踢館。別誤會了!其實我們對瓦城的評價比你們想像中的高。不過它的價位真的也不算便宜。就CP質而言,平日嘴饞當然還是吃平價的就好了~

It is a bit strange, that I've been eating a lot of Thai food since I got knocked up. I didn't use to have that much Thai food before! I've been having so much Thai food that the baby's about to become Thai! 

After our last Thai meal, I wanted to come back to this place for comparison. Despite being a franchise, we actually quite like the place, more than you'd think. But it is rather expensive to dine here. So, naturally, we'd usually choose to dine at cheaper places .

瓦城最令天仙滿意的就是吃飯可以吃得像泰國人一樣:用湯匙叉子,而非用筷子。當然這樣吃不慣的還是可以用碗+筷子。而且就連米飯也可以選擇泰國米或台灣米。不過我們既然是來吃泰國菜,怎還能點台灣米來搭呢~

It was nice to see that the table was set with a large plate and fork and spoon - eat like a Thai! Of course, you can still ask for chopsticks if you're not used to eating this way. There is also a choice of Thai rice and Taiwan rice. Since we're here for Thai food, that's all the reason for getting Thai rice!

這次讓我最滿意的就是瓦城的大薄片。這整盤幾乎都是我吃掉的。它的醬汁夠酸,非常的下飯!

Here's that thinly sliced pork salad I mentioned in the last article. This is a much better version of it! I, alone, must have finished 2/3 of it!

為了與泰鑽一較高下,老爸還是點了一個冬粉蝦煲。顏色看起來是對了,但天仙爸還是不太滿意。天仙顧著吃別的菜,竟忘了嘗一口這道!

In order to make a comparison, I indulged my dad by ordering this shrimp potted vermicelli again. It looked more like what we're used to, but my dad was still not satisfied. I was so busy tending other dishes, that I had completely missed this dish!

瓦城的打拋加了番茄,不過因為沒有洋蔥,我們給他大大的加分。而且湯汁也沒有太多。非常的適中。不錯!

We gave a high score to their khrapao (pork), seeing they did not add any onion. And although there was still a bit of sauce, it was within an acceptable range.

這道綠咖哩雞,其實也不錯。這道雖然天仙自己也會,不過因為平時不愛咖哩,所以就連去餐廳也都很少會點來吃。若真的要天仙吃,這還得淋上一點魚露,天仙才會覺得真的好吃呢!

Green curry chicken was not bad. Although I can make this at home, I don't make it very often. I don't really enjoy curry that much, so we only occasionally order this dish. And when I do have this, I must have some fish sauce with it! 

thaitown06

這就是瓦城號稱的特殊醬汁。其實不過就是魚露加辣椒罷了啊。

Allegedly this is their special sauce, but it's actually just fish sauce with chilli.

香葉包雞。點餐時天仙爸就覺得CP值太低了。不過因為台北的香米home(文末有連結)有賣,天仙想做個比較。結論是,瓦城稍微遜色些。香米home的比較嫩,瓦城的比較乾柴。有點後悔點了這道!

Pandan leaf chicken. My dad thought it was not worth the price, but I had wanted to compare it with this other Thai place I'd been before in Taipei. In the end, I think the place in Taipei won! This chicken was a bit too dry! 

thaitown08

喔!當然也少不了蝦醬空心菜啦!

用餐快結束的時候,店經理來詢問用餐狀況是否滿意。我們原本想要敷衍了事隨便回他幾句就好。沒想到老爸竟然直接回經理說:不滿意!不道地!

我跟老公還有天仙媽在一旁看了真是快冒冷汗了。老爸講話也太直了吧!後來老爸跟經理解釋,我們在泰國住了很多年,所以很期待可以吃到到道地的味道,回味一下!後來我見經理臉都快綠了,急忙解釋:不錯吃啦!真的!!(汗)啊就真的沒有很難吃啊... Orz

這次我們點的剛剛好!因為都有吃完。而且還有一點空間可以吃甜點。(雖然大家都數不清到底吃了幾碗飯了)

Of course, there was also some veggies to go with the meal. 

As we were almost done, the manager came by and asked us how the meal was. My dad surprised all of us by being a bit too frank! He told the manager straight to his face that the food was not authentic enough! He explained that we had lived in Thailand for many years, and wanted to come and get a taste of 'home'. Seeing the awkward expression on the manager's face, I quickly added that the meal was not bad, not bad at all! (Just because it wasn't authentic, didn't mean it had to be bad)

We ordered just the right amount this time, so there was still room for dessert. (Although we'd all lost count of how much rice we had)

於是我們點了摩摩喳喳。只點了兩份,因為其實我們家對冰品都不太愛,所以怕吃不完,但又想嘗鮮~

We ordered two servings of burbur chacha. We weren't big on desserts nor icy dishes, so two was enough to share amongst us.

一上桌,我看這怎麼跟桌上的DM差這麼多呢?(可以退回去叫他做一份一模一樣的嗎?XD)

As the dessert was served, we thought it looked quite different from the picture they placed on the table! I wondered if I could return it and ask them to make one exactly like the one in the picture!

不過攪拌過後,就稍微有點像了啦... ^^"

But after mixing it up a bit, it looked quite okay!

天仙念:吃完這幾間泰國菜,天仙還是覺得沒有一間稱得上是真正的道地。每間都有每間的優點,不過大多都缺點比較多耶。
