After seeing the post from chocolatesuze about this new resto in George st and looking at the Pork Knuckle with crispy skin on the pictures, then and there, I decided to check this place out on the weekends. I went with some of my friends on a Sunday night. So glad that I've made booking in advanced as it got pretty packed during dinner hour.
I read briefly about the restaurant being not fully serving Thai dishes but also German (Just the pork knuckle & beers). Apparently this was a branch from the Original restaurant in Bangkok. As they are fairly new, their website is still under construction :) Looking at the menu, everything was of reasonable prices and looks inviting!
Ordering as usual does not take long for me, while we were waiting for the dish to come out, I noticed that most of the customers are Thai. Which is a good sign in my opinion meaning that the dish was Thai Authentic as I hardly came across Thai patrons in my "go-to" Thai Restaurants.
I read from chocolatesuze review that the the drinks here are refillable except for the beers, so I confirm with the waitress and it is true! We were eating for 1.5hours and they promptly refills the drink. Bebski had 5 glass of milk tea in a seating! :) The milk tea is fragrance and the sweetness level is just right :)
|Thai Milk Tea $4.50|
|Tom Yum Goong $17.90|
|Ka Moo Tod $22.90|
|Pad Kra Prao Moo - $15.90|
|Pu Nim Tod Prik Krue $17.90|
|Sweet Dumplings in Coconut cream sauce $5.50|
Overall dining experience .... Couldn't be any much better! The staff is super duper attentive considering how pact the place get at night. I really hope that they have all the desserts soon as I will definitely be back with Bebski to eat some more pork and definitely the catfish!!
Chat Thai & Home Thai, you have a major contender now ^^

After accompanying my Brisbane friend to Home Thai, Now its my melbourne friend that came and I brought him to taste the amazing pork knuckle in Tawandang :) Below are three new dishes that I tried there..
Papaya salad with Roast pork.. The papaya salad and the sauce works well for me.. with some crushed nuts and cherry tomatoes on top complemented everything very well. The pork however, I can't figure out which part of the pork that they used. It was chewy and very fatty T.T It's hard for me to distinguish whether it was meat or plain fat :p
