Larb Thai Cuisine: Hidden Gem in PIK Area

 Larb Thai Cuisine

There are dozens or maybe hundreds of restaurant/cafe in PIK area that served unique type of dishes. But, none of them served an excellent and delicious Thai food as Larb Thai Cuisine does.

Established in 2016, Larb Thai Cuisine is a brand new business venture from a young couple who are passionate in F&B industry. Nita is the real owner of this little label which is fully supported by her husband who is born in Thailand. Confirming its brand as one of the more frontlines in lemon grass dishes and sweet and sour soup, Larb Thai Cuisine imported its finest ingredients from Thailand and locally. No wonder you can expect a high-quality Thai dishes here. Let's take a peek! :)

 Larb Thai Cuisine

 Larb Thai Cuisine

Nestled in Pantai Indah Kapuk exactly at the same row with Saine Daise and Darin, this whole restaurant occupied a two-story ruko with simple Thailand decor. Fully influenced by wooden furniture and yellow bulb, the overall ambiance is just warm and homey. It feels like entering a mini Thai in the heart of the city. EatandStructure approved!

 Tom Yam Shrimp

 Tom Yam Shrimp

Start with the crowd pleaser menu called Tom Yam Shrimp (IDR 65,500 / S$ 7,15). Featuring the authentic Thai spicy and sour soup with springy noodles and jumbo prawns; topped with egg yolk. It's not only tasty but heartwarming. I need to admit that soup is just stunning and well balanced. Once you dig in, you can smell the strong aroma of ginger and lemongrass together with succulent prawn meat. Share this menu with two people since it comes in a generous portion.

 Lemongrass Fried Chicken

 Lemongrass Fried Chicken

Not as bad as it looks, Lemongrass Fried Chicken (IDR 55,500 / S$ 6,15) is surprisingly delicious and addicting! That crispy bird nest comes from thinly cut lemongrass while that drumstick has been cooked to the perfection over the hot pan. It's juicy, tender, and slightly salty. Never forget to pairs this with a bowl of steam rice for the best experience.

 Squid Omelette

 Squid Omelette

Squid Omelette (New) taste beyond my imagination. I do expect it must be gooey and sticky but in fact, it's perfectly moist and succulent. You will love how that meat blends well with that egg and onion. Not overwhelmingly hot and salty.

 Larb Pork Neck

The ultimate signature menu collection is Larb Pork Neck (IDR 49,500 / S$ 5,65). Taken its inspiration from classic Thai cuisine, this menu has been revamped over time. To create this list, Larb Thai Cuisine needs to invest a lot of money to partner with the first pork cheek vendor in Jakarta. No wonder, this menu is perfectly juicy and tender. That whole spices on top are also beautiful and fragrant.

 Crispy Pork Belly

 Crispy Pork Belly

If you are a pork fanatic, this Crispy Pork (IDR 42,500 / S$ 4,85) is absolute must try. Featuring the perfectly cooked pork meat with a thick layer of fat and crispy skin; served with green chili. The key element on that plate is that sauce which is spicy and a tad of sweetness. You might enjoy this much if it is still hot and warm.

 Mango Sticky Rice

 Mango Sticky Rice

End up your meal with Mango Sticky Rice (New). Featuring the nicely cut of mango with three color sticky rice; bathed in creamy coconut sauce. It's sweet, soggy, and well presented. I love that pieces of mango which are fresh and moist. However, that sticky rice texture needs to be improved a bit.

 Two In One Drinks

For the beverage, Two In One Drinks (IDR 25,000 / S$ 3,10) is undoubtedly fantastic. As the pioneer of two in one (Thai Milk Tea and Thai Green Tea) in Jakarta, none of you would resist this. They do introduce this recently on the bazaar, and surprisingly the response from the market is just high. It is not only sweet but refreshing. That take away bottle is also cute somehow! :)

 Larb Thai Cuisine

Larb Thai Cuisine is my place to go for authentic Thai cuisine. The food is just lovely and affordable while the whole ambiance is still homey and warm. Bring your family/colleague here and make them proud of you.
