If you haven’t got your fill of yummies from the Plates, just take a walk to their dining area and bar, Inch Food Bar. Inch is a Southeast Asian bar and restaurant serving authentic Thai dishes in Tapas style while Plates serve a western brunch and snacks. Strategically located at Lebuh Muntri near the Georgetown heritage trails, Inch is perfect for a pint or two after a long tour around our beautiful town.
Pad Thai (RM19.00)
What I thought is essentially Thai style Char Koay Teow, Pad Thai is one of our favorites from the main menu. Thin rice noodles fried together with a plethora of sumptuous ingredients like egg, tofu, shallots, dried prawns and chicken slices, served with tamarind sauce, bean sprouts and ground peanuts. Simply squeeze the lime over the noodles for a light refreshing drizzle of citrus to balance off the richness of the dish!
Gaeng Phed (RM20.00)
We were given a choice of chicken or beef as our protein to go along with the rich creamy red curry. The chicken was tender and every bit as succulent as ever, paired with curry cooked with the most glorious combination of spices and coconut milk. We savored every mouthful with their soft fragrant rice due to the richness of the curry.
Tom Yam Goong (RM19.00)
Unlike how locals like their tom yam goong pretty damn hot, this tomyam broth is milder in terms of spiciness but exceeds expectations in the aspect of having a strong seafood taste.
Kai Tort (RM16.00)
Crisp, tasty and sinful, what more can you ask for in a chicken wing? These chicken wings are marinated in fish sauce, garlic and coriander roots for an aromatic flavour, further deep fried and subsequently served with sweet chilli sauce.
Beef Satay (RM16.00) / Kai Yang (RM16.00)
A Thai version of our famed local dish Satay, Kai Yang comprises of chicken thigh skewers served with jim jeaw sauce (a favourite Thai sweet and tangy dried chilli sauce).
Highly recommended for beef lovers, the Beef Satay are also skewers with meaty chunks of beef marinated in coconut milk, curry powder and coriander roots. Nicely grilled over charcoal for the char and served with the well-blended ground peanut sauce. Probably one of the best peanut sauce we have ever tasted!
Khao Niew (RM4.00)
Khao Neaw Ma Muang (RM12.00)
How else to end a Thai meal than with mango sticky rice? These sweet juicy sliced mangoes surrounding a thoughtful heart-shaped sticky rice as our dessert to end our meal on a high note. Credits to the chef for the beautifully crafted dessert.
Grapefruit Bombay Sapphire Gin Infusion with Tonic Water (RM25.00) / Nutmeg Tom Collins (RM25.00)
We were also introduced to two of their most highly recommended cocktails from the menu, grapefruit-Bombay Sapphire Gin infused with tonic water and Nutmeg-infused gin with fresh lemon juice and sugar soda.
