ThaiTown explodes

June 2010

Three new eateries have opened on Pitt between Campbell and Goulburn. First, Thanon Khao Sai (413 Pitt Street, Ph 9211 1196) which, for some reason no one could explain to me, has a wall of Thai number plates as decoration. The menu looks interesting (so far I’ve only clocked these places) and the crowd of hungry Thai students suggests it’s pretty good. Next, Sukjai (415 Pitt Street, no phone) has the funkiest fit with crazy paving tiles and superbly kooky wall stuff (I hesitate to call it art), offering pretty standard Isan/Bangkok food, but again pretty popular with the ThaiTots. Finally, we have a third branch of Shalom (421 Pitt Street, Ph 9211 4285), an Indonesian invader famous for it’s rawon buntut, black oxtail soup and remarkably low-priced dishes.

So this little stretch is now packed with food fascination with Encasa (Spanish), Three Mama Chefs, Thai and the Japanese/Thai Iiwa in Mr B’s on the corner of Goulburn, not to mention the daringly named Ho’s Dims Sims for instant home yum cha.
