Auntie Nok @ Cheras, KL
Located at the quieter neighbourhood in Taman Bukit Hijau (just somewhere next to Taman Taynton View), Auntie Nok is a Thai café that stirs up a real taste of Thailand here in Cheras. You get to experience the Thai street food culture, where they put up all the delicious street food such as Braised Pork Knuckle, Duck Noodle Soup, Tom Yum Seafood Noodle Soup, and Thai Style Mix Pork Kway Chap Soup… all under one roof. They even offer the ass-kicking Spicy Volcano Pork Ribs that is found in the famous Jodd Fair .
We have been quite a regular since they open. Visited for at least once a month when we are out of idea where to go at meal time. They stir up pretty good fare of Thai stir fry, but we have not try out their Volcano Pork Ribs as we are not a fan of it.
Pandan Chicken (Rm 9 for 2 pcs)
Marinated Boneless chicken cutlets wrapped in aromatic pandan leaf, very aromatic and dosed with spices. Flavourful!
Fish Cake (Rm 9 for 2 pcs)
Fish cakes were dosed with spices, deep fried into perfection and served with chili dipping sauce. Really quite an authentic flavour with spices that were quite kicking.
Mango Salad (Rm 16.9)
Refreshing salad made with shredded green mango and tossed with special sweet and sour dressing and chili padi, garnished with peanuts and dried shrimp. Sourish, spicy and addictive. They gave quite a huge mountain of shredded green mango.
Kang Kong with Balacan (Rm 12)
Stir-fry kang kong with chilies and shrimp paste was filled with wok hei.
Thai Style Pineapple Fried Rice (Rm 15.9 – all day set) comes with a glass of Pandan Tea
Another wok hei-full fried rice, with every rice grains enveloped with wok hei and perfectly seasoned, loaded with lots of squids and prawn too, very flavourful.
Tom Yum Fried Bee Hoon
This was a letdown as the bee hoon was made too soft despite the flavour was good.
Braised Pork Knuckle with Rice (Rm 16.9)
The must eat in Pratunam! Auntie Nok’s version comes with braised pork knuckle, braised tofu, braised egg and some greens, served with their house’s chili sauce. The level of addictiveness is not as rich as the famous one in Pratunam. Perhaps the main gravy is still very “young” and it definitely needs time to develop a stronger and more flavourful gravy for the braised meat.
