Luk Kai Thong Thai Chinese Food Thonglor on BuMRes.com

The Luk Kai Thong restaurant – with such a Thai name, I thought it was a traditional Thai restaurant.  Supposedly the food of Luk Kai Thong is half bred; Thai and Chinese.  In Thai, Luk Kai Thong means a baby golden chick and only Kai Thong refers to golden chicken.  The Mae Kai Thong (Mother of the golden chick) is located at Muang Thong Thani.  And for the one I am reviewing today is the Luk Kai Thong, which is at Thonglor 13 – the Soi of cool restaurants.  By naming this one ‘Luk’ Kai Thong – must be because of its size.  The place has only ten tables with full on decoration and cozy atmosphere. 

About the food of Luk Kai Thong, I am not sure what nationality it is exactly – like I said, it appeared to half bred of Thai and Chinese cuisine.  If any of you can tell me its actual nationality, please let me know.  Details of the menu can be found in the tab menu.  Today I mostly order from the recommendation menu and one other small appetizer.  

First one to come was the Luk Shin Sethee Luak (Millionaire meatballs) for 120 baht.  It was six huge fish balls served on Chinese celery.  It was an enjoyable yet simple dish – texture was nice and soft. 

Bamee with roasted duck (egg noodles) for 180 baht – not in the recommended section but I ended up liking this menu the most.  Its flavor was well in harmony; soft egg noodles, tender duck breast, slightly salty.  All aspects of this noodle dish were spectacular.  I wish I had a bowl of it right at the second. 

 Kao Yok Ron + Rice bun (350 baht) – it looked a lot like any braised pork belly in Chinese restaurants.  This one was suggested by the restaurant, tasted alright with its flavor leaning toward sweetness.  You may not like it if you don’t like sweet.  Though you have the bland flavored rice bun to contrast with the meat; they were meant to be together.  

Moo Neang Pla Kem (250 baht), Steam pork with salted fish – another recommended menu.  Surprisingly, I didn’t like it at all.  Its saltiness was way too pronounced but my father ended up liking this menu.  A classic example of personal preference.  

The Luk Kai Thong didn’t add service charge or vat, so everything in the menu may be priced higher already.  For four dishes, the bill totaled to about 1,000 baht.  My experience at the Luk Kai Thong @ Thonglor was average – I didn’t sense anything special about the food.  But, it is a good restaurant.  If you look for rare dishes, a mix of Thai and Chinese, Luk Kai Thong is the spot for you.
