Satang Thai Exclusive, Haymarket

Conveniently located across from Central Station, a 3 minute walk from UTS and ~10 minute walk for USYD, this little Thai restaurant is the perfect place for the hungry uni student on the go. Their menu consists of a range of authentic Thai cuisines with salads, stir-fry noodles and rice served with your choice of vegetables and tofu, chicken, beef or pork.
We, once again, had some difficulty in deciding what to get so we started off with a nice, refreshing drink.

Iced Red Tea with Lemon
Ice cold, sweet, refreshing with a hint of lemon - great for cooling off in the afternoon after a long, hard day of lectures and tutorials. :P

Vegetable and Tofu Pad See Ew
To be honest, this dish wasn’t as I expected. Ordering a vegetarian dish, I had expected to see a variety of colourful vegetables stir-fired with my noodles. Unfortunately, only the usual carrots, asian veges, one piece of broccoli(?!) was served. However, the hefty serving sizes made up for this! :)

Some pork dish…
Ok… I don’t really remember what this was called but apparently it had some really “kungfu-ish” name like pow pow pork or kapow pork? o.O Anyways, it was basically crispy pork belly (which was deep fried) stir fried with some green beans and onion with a chilli/garlic/sweet-ish sauce over a bed of steamed rice. It was a very appetizing dish and I loved the sauce mixed with the rice but the so called “crispy” pork belly was fried until it was hard and was a bit difficult to chew.

Chicken Drunken Noodles
Thick rice noodles stir-fried with bean sprouts, asian greens and basil. Once again, this dish was very appetizing and definitely very filling.
Overall, the prices were quite reasonable and the meals were satisfying enough. However, I think anyone who has tried the cheap and tasty Thai restaurants at Newtown…well, this doesn’t quite make the cut.
