It Just Has To Be Delicious

Rasa Enak – Greenwood

This is a relatively new cafe style restaurant in the shopping complex on Coolibah Drive, Greenwood, pretty close to the Farmer Jack’s, so there is quite a large car park with plenty of room.

It’s a nice cosy cafe, clean and nicely decorated and although the menu has some pan-asian dishes it is predominantly Malaysian.

We chose our favourite starter – Loh Bak – pork, carrot, water chestnuts and spices wrapped in a bean curd skin and steamed then deep fried. It was crispy, meaty and delicious, nicely seasoned too and served with a sweet chilli dip.

For main course we chose to share char kway teow, beef malay curry and rice.

The char kway teow was delicious – nicely spiced as requested with a medium amount of chilli, chinese sausage, prawns, sliced fish balls – a really nice authentic version. The beef curry was thick and tasty with chunks of roast potato (a nice change to the regular boiled potato), and it had a spicy kick to it. The portions were a generous size and perfect for two to share and good value at $36 all in.

I would love to try a lot of the other dishes on the menu, in particular the fish head curry and the eggplant sambal.

In summary, great service, pleasant surroundings and tasty authentic food – I have a feeling this will be a regular cafe on my agenda.

Sanook Thai Cafe, Greenwood

Sanook is a real find – authentic, tasty, inexpensive Thai food in a relatively local area.

It’s best to get an inside table if you can – we had an outside table, which wasn’t too bad, it was a lovely warm evening and no flies, but every so often due to the location of the cafe, a little whirlwind whipped up and blew things off the table.

Starters were chicken wings with chilli dipping sauce – again I forgot to photograph them before eating, so the portion size is much bigger than portrayed :

The whole meal was extremely tasty. The curry is the most authentic thai curry that I have tasted in ages, the larb was a delight with real thai basil, and the rice was perfectly cooked. This little cafe is open on Sundays too – I will definitely be going back – a lovely little feast for $54 – you can’t beat that.
