Authentic Thai Restaurant in JB : Carabao Restaurant

IMG_3118 Happy Birthday Papa! This is kinda late but nvm. Celebrated with him and I think that day is a good day a little bit different this year because.. Had Baskin Robbin as birthday cake:) IMG_3115 Birthday dinner in Carabao. my family'd never tasted this restaurant before although we live in JB for so long. so, sis suggested to go there to have the dinner. It sounds good isn't? When we first reached there, I finally know why I didn't know there's such restaurant in JB. It is quite hidden among the shops. 1 good thing about this restaurant, in front of it, there're car park. it is very convenient for the customers who usually drive around. IMG_3077 IMG_3078 I like the ambiance here! It is not too formal, not too casual(very noisy). It is a place where I will come for dating, gathering and so on. IMG_3080 The ceiling is decorated with various decorations Oh ya, forgot to introduce about this restaurant. Carabao means Buffalo. as you can see from the picture, there's buffalo head above it. It is an authentic Thai Restaurant. IMG_3082 IMG_3083 they made the food in front of u Then there's 2 types of seating here. 1 is the normal 1, which is with chair and table. another type is i personally very like 1, that is sitting on a mat, dining on a japanese table. then each table has own compartment. beside us are the trees. we actually no need to on the fan. the natural breeze is cooling enough IMG_3091 Appetizer: Thai Mango Salad(RM10.90) To those who like to eat Som Tam, I think you should try this mango salad. It is similar to Som Tam, but more sour cause of the mango. I think it taste better than Som Tam. IMG_3093 Tom Yam Clear Seafood It costs only RM14.90! I get shocked when I know it. because it is sooooo nice and big portion! there are fish, mushrooms, vegetable, prawns and so on in the soup. It had strong Tom Yam taste although it doesnt look like tom yam. Recommended for people who dislike coconut milk or too spicy food IMG_3095 Thai Style Sotong( RM10.90) very chewable sotong! hard to stop once started to chew it :p but it will taste even better if the sotong is fried beforehand IMG_3096 Pandan Chicken (RM22.80) Smooooooth flesh with extra fragrant had made me love the Pandan Chicken! I just wonder why it is not served with any sauce at here. oh and hey, don't eat the pandan leaves. I know it is sooo crunchy and smelling great :) IMG_3094 Thai Style Soya Sauce Fried NICE!!! need not to say more. Tried the mango ice and thai coconut here as well. I think they still need to improve their beverages. The mango ice is okok only. the ice is too coarse. Coconut is standard, coconut juice very nice:D but flesh very hard IMG_3108 papa & mama <3 href="" title="IMG_3112 by wileetee, on Flickr">IMG_3112 They got this in the restaurant.
