Streat Thai @ The School, Jaya One PJ
They've been around for quite some time now, but only recently did I have the chance to savour some really delicious yet affordable Thai street food over at Streat Thai in Jaya One, Petaling Jaya. Yes, you read it right, it's spelt 'Streat' Thai, not Street, a play on words for that "eat" factor. From what I understood from the folks behind Streat Thai, cooks and baristas with different specialties in Thai street food from Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Pattaya, Bangkok and Hat Yai were hired to man each stall. Check out what we had that evening.

Authentic Thai Street Food at its best
Streat Thai is a pork free Thai Restaurant whose focus is on serving a wide variety of authentic and popular Thai Street Food in a relaxing environment that is reminiscent of restaurants in Bangkok. The unique restaurant features a number of stalls that are stationed by 15 Thai Chefs serving a variety of Noodles, Thai Salads, Stir Fry Dishes, BBQ, Desserts and Drinks.
|Interesting feel, and decor setup of Streat Thai|
All stalls at Streat Thai offers authentic Thai cuisine, where the ingredients are imported from Thailand every week. I'm impressed that each of the stalls are manned by one Thai Chef specialized for the food they serve. Pretty good stuff! No pork is served in Streat Thai.
|Streat Thai Fried Chicken Wings - RM17.90|
The appetiser dishes and snacks at Streat Thai is anything but small, with sizes large enough to share with family and frieds. We tried the rather huge platter of Streat Thai Fried Chicken Wings. One of the signature dish at Streat Thai, it's a bestseller as well. Crispy on the outside, flavourful and tender inside, I need more of these!
|Pandan Chicken - RM16.90|
Any Thai Cuisine is good when Pandan Chicken is involved. Here at Streat Thai, they made the flavourful Pandan Chicken just the way I like. Peel off the pandan layers, and you have these bite sized chicken chunks which is good to have on its own, or with rice.
|Somtam / Papaya Salad and Anchovy Sauce - RM7.90|
|Deep Fried Fish with Fish Sauce - RM42.90 (Red Tilapia), RM56.90 (Seabass), RM69.90 (Snapper)|
Fancy some appetizing salad? Try their Somtam / Papaya Salad and Anchovy Sauce then. We also got to try out their amazing Deep Fried Fish with Fish Sauce. That evening, we went ahead with the Red Tilapia, which came looking really fluffy, I was surprised its fish. Tasty enough, the flesh had a sweet flavour to it. The fish dish comes with mango salad on the side.
|Braised Chicken Noodles - RM10.90|
|Tomyam Creamy Soup with Seafood (RM12.40-S, RM23.90-M, RM37.90-L)|
We managed to try out their Braised Chicken Noodles, which came in a bowl of piping hot hearty chicken soup with noodles so soft and smooth you could slurp the whole thing down. Always try tomyum dishes when dining Thai cuisine, hence we went for Streat Thai's Tomyam Creamy Soup with Seafood. Lovely, the tomyam is creamy, and spicy. There were plenty of ingredients in the dish, so you do get your money's worth when ordering this dish.
|Tomyam Creamy Porridge with Seafood - RM18.90|
|A view from the top of what you're getting|
I rarely see a dish such as this, the Tomyam Creamy Porridge with Seafood blew me away with it's surprisingly tasty combination of porridge and tomyam soup. You get a choice of having either the chicken soup base or tomyam one. Of course we went with the spicier version. Really good stuff here, the dish is served boiling hot, so be real careful before slurping the porridge down the throat!
|Pineapple Fried Rice - RM9.90|
After all that good food, the Pineapple Fried Rice looks plain in comparison. One bite into the rice however, proved me wrong. It's anything but plain, filled with various ingredients to make it so fragrant and tasty. The generous amount of cashew nuts made all the difference.
|Thai Milk Tea (RM5.90), Coconut Smoothie (RM8.90) and Butterfly Pea Ice Soda (RM4.90)|
|There's a live band playing on Friday and Saturdays from 7.30pm to 10.30pm|
Down it all with refreshing Thai drinks and desserts from Streat Thai. There's a live band playing on Friday and Saturdays from 7.30pm to 10.30pm, which is a pretty cool addition to a good meal out. Overall, I quite like the fares served at Streat Thai, as it has that authentic feel to it, and all were tasty enough to warrant a repeat visit here. Do check out Streat Thai @ The School, Jaya One PJ for some delicious & affordable Thai Street Food, the next time you're in the vicinity.
