[Greyhound] Great modern Thai fare at Whampoa

Entry posted by supersupergirl · - 543 views

It's been a while since I last dined at Greyhound so I have forgotten how good their Thai dishes are.
As it was my friends birthday we went here as she wanted the coconut crepe cake.
The menu has changed quite a bit since my last visit in 2012 and they now have more pasta dishes and Western dishes to cater for a bigger audience.
While the menu has expanded, the dessert menu is still fab with a great variety of desserts which make it hard to decide what to end the meal with.
+++++
Started dinner with this evilicious Cherry soda, I chose it because you rarely see it on menus in HK.
It turned out better than I expected because some cherry flavours can taste artificial but this one was sweet and moreish.

It comes with a side of coke which you pour in, therefore giving you a cherry cola flavoured drink.
After a while when the icecream has melted you get a delicious cherry soda float.
+++++
The other drink we had was the Pick you up which was a healthy concoction of juices:

Started with the Waterfall Grilled Lamb which is Sirloin of lamb served on skewers with Thai north eastern style spices with chopped shallots, spring onion, dry chilies and lime juice.

This was my favourite because their sauce was really similar to the sauce at [Chili club, Wanchai] for the thinly sliced grilled beef filet. Surprising the lamb and the sauce were a great match and lamb meat has never been so appetizing and moreish. I will definitely order this on my next visit which means I have to come back to this branch as they only serve it here. They also offer this at their Beijing branch because the people up North like lamb. It had no gaminess at all and tasted like tender beef slices.
+++++
Greyhound's famous chicken wings are indeed delish as they are so convenient to eat because of the single bone element. They were crispy with a delicious salty fish saltiness.

++++++
For noodles, had the Beef balls and stewed beef noodles which came in a rich beef broth.

I loved the thin rice vermicelli which soaks the broth and you also get condiments with it so you can add accordingly.
Yellow chili sauce was my favourite and really brings the flavour to the next level.
+++++
Spaghetti with Thai Anchovy:

This item is another must order item because the taste is very strong, from salty anchovies to strong basil leaves.
+++++
Larb Salmon E-Sarn Style:

This was similar to the waterfall lamb, but the dressing at the bottom was tangy and fiery.
The salmon tastes really good when you mix it all together.
++++
Coconut sherbet:

Usually sherbets have a tart taste but this one was not. The taste was sweet and soothing like coconut melting in your mouth. It is made of young coconut and the coconut water inside which tastes so much better than coconut milk. The icy frozen coconut sorbet melting sensation was so refreshing especially when it was made from coconut water.
+++++
Coconut crepe:

The crepe was covered in cream which was lovely and light and it was slightly sweetened but not too sweet. In between the crepe layers there was delicious pieces of young coconut. It reminds me of the buko pie but this one is nicer because it is not so sweet. On top of the crepe, there was a piece of water chestnut which is the one served in the Tub Tim Krob dessert. Overall the cake was delicious, however the coconut meat in the middle was a little hard comparing it to the one I tried a while ago.
