A few weeks ago, hubby and I went to Chilli 'n' Chive Thai Restaurant in Beaconsfield for a friend's birthday dinner. We've never been to this restaurant neither did we even know of its existence! Turns out we've been missing out... it is quite a good Thai restaurant with a lovely restaurant atmosphere and great food. It was the perfect place to have friends come together for a meal, also a cosy place for couples to have their weekly (or monthly.. or yearly? Lol) date night.
Looking through the menu they have split the items into Small, Medium and Large meals, which I thought was pretty clever so people could decide what to have based on how hungry they were at the time. I wasn't too hungry, so I definitely wasn't interested in a full on large main meal. I did, however want to try a couple of different things. So I ordered a Small meal as well as a Medium.
|Son-In-Law Eggs $10|
The eggs were cooked beautifully, the way it should be. The yolk was still soft and gooey and even the egg whites stayed soft textured so combine that with its crisp outer layer, you get perfect son-in-law eggs. I wasn't a huge fan of the tamarind sauce though, I thought it was way too sweet for my liking, but that's just how Thai cuisine can be sometimes. They are a lot sweeter than other South East Asian cuisines.
|Roast Duck and Lychee Salad $19|
In saying that, that duck was delicious and I love lychee so I ate most of the salads anyway.
Hubby had the Chicken Green Curry which was a very generous portion served with rice. They weren't kidding when they categorised the curries as a Large main meal! It was a great green curry, full of flavours and deliciously creamy. Perfect for when you're extra hungry!
|Pad See Ew $18.90|
So overall, this restaurant definitely will go on my list of regulars (not that we go out that often) but we will definitely consider coming here again the next time we plan to dine out.
