In the same vein as Sukhothai and Khao San Road, Sabai Sabai aims to serve quality Thai food. Their lunch menu consists of individualized plates, but their dinner service offers a set of small and perfectly portioned dishes for snacking that can also be combined for a full on family-style dinner with friends. Grilled meats, batter-fried or steamed fish, and salads, including a green papaya salad, have replaced the pad thai heavy fare that dominate most Thai menus in the city. With white, brown or sticky rice as sides. In terms of usuals, there’s still curry, like a vegan mock fish in red curry and shrimp in panang curry that looked delicious.
Five dishes and two sides of rice left the two of us comfortably full. We ordered on the light side.
Morning Glory stir fry – $6. My favourite. AKA “swamp cabbage” for the uninitiated. For lunch, they serve this with their mock fish red curry.
Grilled pork skewers – $6. Nicely charred, if a bit past done.
Grilled beef salad – $6. Unfortunately, I have this thing against garlic. There was a lot of garlic in this. Well. You know. Not my favourite. The beef was tough as well.
Grilled marinated chicken wings – $6
Crispy fried fish with tamarind sauce – $7
