Perth - Sala Thai and Madmonk

Met up with friends a while back for dinner at Sala Thai in Fremantle. This is only my second time at Sala Thai and I think they serve really good and authentic Thai food.
Reservation is strongly recommended as they are often fully booked.
The interior of the restaurant is very spacious and it gives you an alfresco dining experience although it is indoors.

1) Gang Ped - Red Duck Curry with cherry tomatos and lyches - $27.00
2) Pad Thai - Thin Flat Rice Noodles with Beansprouts, Eggs, Chives, Peanuts and Prawns - $17.80
3) Pla Thod Sum Rods - Deep Fried Whole Fish Topped with Sweet & Spicy Tamarind Chilli Sauce- Market Price
4) Neua Yang Nam Tok - Grilled Marinated Beef served with Spicy Hot Sauce - $21

The duck curry was rich in flavours, really thick curry that went very well with the rice. I love the grilled beef although it is a really simple dish, the taste of the 'grill' was infused into the beef, and the sweet and tangy sauce brought out the flavours, it is one of my favourite dish! The Pad Thai was DIVINE with generous seafood ingredients. The last dish was the fried fish, which the staff offered to debone for us. We could taste the freshness of the fish as it was not overcooked. I think it was deep fried to perfection and the spicy hot sauce which covered the fish was heavenly.
We all enjoyed our dinner. It's obvious that Sala Thai used fresh and good quality ingredients to prepare their dishes which made every dish exquisite. One of the best Thai restaurants I've been to.

Went to Madmonk after dinner for a quick drink and some dessert.
(taken from the website) mild - lower alchol

3.5%, the mad monk mild is a light golden

lager with a fresh saaz hop aroma. crisp and

clean on the palate, the mild recently won

best reduced alcohol at the Perth Royal

Beer Show.
The beer was light and refreshing. Perfect for a cool summer night, there was a hint of sweetness in the aftertaste, i really liked their beers! They serve breakfast and dinner too.
