Five times in the last nine days. Zubair and I are absolutely obsessed with Galanga. The restaurant has been around for a few years, and it has been on my forever list of places to try. So we did, for the first time just over a week ago. And then we’ve been back for more times since. Crazy? Perhaps. It’s affordable and good.
Call me boring when it comes to Thai, but I love pad thai and drunken noodles like no other. I can do without larb gai and other perhaps, more “authentic” dishes. I appreciate those dishes, but at the end of the day, nothing satisfies more than:
1. hot spicy noodles
2. curry with a big bowl of rice
At Galanga, we stick to our favourites, which include drunken noodles, pad thai, green curry, and the tom yum noodle soup. Duck spring rolls for appetizers and the sticky coconut rice with mango (or matcha ice cream) is a can’t-miss.
I’m usually the more dessert focused one between the two of us, but when at Galanga, it’s Zubair who demands dessert ;)
