Spice up your lunch
Even though I was still recovering from a weak stomach from my fatty French dining experience at Chez Pascal the night before I was totally inspired by Tasted By Two's food blog review of Spice I Am for lunch the next day to try their Boat Noodle Soup so I could compare it to the one I had at Chat Thai. The broth definitely had a lot of depth to the taste and I enjoyed it very much. My Malaysian born colleague enjoyed his Guay Jab with delicious bits of pork although found the soup a bit on the sweet side for his taste buds. I asked for some lime to squeeze in our soups (possibly sacrilege?) which we thought worked really well and gave the broth another dimension — try it.
Previously I've only visited for dinner for their yummy Mussaman Beef, Basil Crispy Pork Belly, Duck Curry and Soft Shell Crab but hope to visit again for lunch now. Timing is everything to get a seat in this very popular restaurant which still remains one of my favourite Thai restaurants in Sydney.
