Benjarong - A Thai Treat
Written by Chandra Kumar R   

Nov-2013: We went for a team outing to Benjarong (Thai Cuisine), Ulsoor, Bangalore. We were of 10 members - 5 non-vegetarians and 5 vegetarians. Since I was one among the vegetarians on that day, I am writing only about the veg part of our lunch.


First we are served with the complimentary appetizer Miang Kham. Making a bite from lettuce leaves, toasted shredded coconut, ginger, onion, roasted peanuts, red bird's eye chili, lime and sauce. I was tasting this for the first time and I found it very tasty.

We had soups - Tom som and Gaeng som phak. Among the two, my pick was Tom som which had tofu and mushroom. Gaeng som phak was little spicy. Then we had the appetizers - Phak bung tod gratiem prik tai, Med tohu tod namprik pow and Satay je. Phak bung tod gratiem prik tai was my favourite.


We had Bamee pahd namprik pow (noodles), Khao hom mali prik (thai fragrant rice) and Kaeng bamaa (curry) for the main course. All the three were very tasty.


We finished with thai desserts. We tried Sankhaya fakthong, Aitim tod, Tub tim grob, Lemon grass ice cream, Sakoo cantaloupe, Rambutans in syrup and Banana pancake with coconut ice cream. I liked Aitim tod and Banana pancake with coconut ice cream.


Food was very tasty, the ambience was good and the service was also good. But the food was very expensive. As we paid around Rs. 14500 for 10 persons.


One mention about the food menu for that day. In addition to the main menu, they provided us with a special menu for dishes. They said that the special menu was for some food festival happening there.
