SAAP THAI

Cuisine: Thai

During the day the inside is bright with cream-painted walls and little white tables. The decor is a step up from no-frills with dark brown furniture and the cuisine is authentic, using lots of chilli, fresh herbs and great textures. Som tum (papaya salad) is the specialty here, with 11 different versions available. Delicate and crunchy papaya, shredded carrot, tomato, green beans and peanuts mingle with white fish and crab in the som tum pu pla ra $8.50, a salty contrast to the sweet dressing of lemon, chilli, garlic and fish sauce. Other salad varieties such as fried catfish and the “morning glory”, containing lightly battered water spinach and a sprinkle of pork mince and peanuts, are worth a look. Old faithfuls such as chicken and cashew nut stirfry $8.90 are there, too. Rock-bottom prices lure a largely student crowd.
