Takeaway: Thai Thai Restaurant, Hawthorn using Menulog

in Hawthorn, Takeaway, Thai

Hubby and I get takeaway once in a while when we can’t be bothered cooking or going out, but rarely do we get home delivery. I find that we don’t keep the menus to be able to order home delivery or we don’t know the places around our area that do home delivery. When the chance arose to use the Menulog home delivery service, hubby and I gave it a go. You can read my review of using the Menulog service here.

The food arrived within 15 minutes of our requested delivery time, which I thought wasn’t too bad. We ordered an entrée, a noodle dish and a curry and they came well packaged. We requested that the dishes were mild if possible.

For entrée, we ordered the Thai fish cakes. I’m not too fond of fish cakes, but hubby wanted them. They were actually quite nice, though small in size. It came with a yummy sweet chilli dipping sauce which had little bits of garlic and cucumber in the sauce. The sauce went extremely well with the fish cakes.

Thai fish cakes (5) – deep fried fish blended with curry paste, lime leaves & bean $6.90

You can’t have Thai without getting a curry and Thai Thai had 4 types of curry – a green curry, a massaman curry, a panang curry and a red duck curry. We chose the green curry. You can also choose whether you want vegetables, chicken, pork, beef, fish fillet or prawns with your curry. We went with chicken, but there was also bamboo shoots, carrots and green beans. The curry sauce was tasty and not too rich. I thought the flavour of the Thai basil was too strong for my liking but hubby liked it.

Gang Keaw Warn – Green curry with coconut milk, bean, basil, bamboo shoot $10.90

The last dish was mee krob. I have never tried mee krob before but the description of crispy rice vermicelli and tofu in a tamarind sauce with prawns sounded good. One corner of lid of the foil container had been cut out to allow the steam to escape from the dish and help keep it crispy. The vermicelli was actually chopped up small pieces which had been deep fried and a sweet sauce was mixed through. It was quite sweet and crunchy but chewy at the same time – almost like eating a honeyed cereal! It was incredibly moorish but I can imagine feeling sick if I were to eat too much of it. There were 7 very small prawns and 1cm cubes of deep fried tofu throughout the noodles.

Hubby made some steamed rice to have with the dishes. Even though the dishes looked small, we were so full afterwards! We enjoyed the food and would order from Thai Thai again.

Over & Out, Rilsta xx

I've always been curious about this service! I guess it was only a matter of time before someone blogged it!

Pretty good service. I feel like fish cakes now… nawwww

Hi Maria: Oops, I think you misunderstood me! There was a lot of tofu cubes in there! As they were so small, there was a lot more crispiness!

Hi Iron Chef Shellie: Yeah, I had heard about it but never thought to try it. It works well!
