Flying Chillies @ The Gardens Mid Valley City


A Dose of High at Flying Chillies: It is no secret that I love hot and spicy food. Anything with my good friend, chilli in it is sure to perk up my senses. Fortunately, I’m lucky to have a partner-in-crime that feels the same way, so much so that whenever either of us is in the mood for fiery food, the other would gladly oblige. One night, I was craving for some hot and spicy tom yam soup when we were in The Gardens waiting for our midnight movie. My first reaction was Flying Chillies, the Thai restaurant situated just below the cinema, a place I frequent with my colleagues on long Friday lunches.

Waiting for food on fully-packed night

It was perhaps my fifth time there but Saucer’s first, so I excitedly dragged him in while recommending some of the dishes that I’ve tried there before. We were lucky to get a table in the fully packed restaurant!
“Hospitality with a heart”
Thai Iced Tea (RM10)
We had a glass of tall Thai Iced Tea, which was prettily prepared with 3 distinct layers – tea, milk and palm sugar (gula melaka). This was very fragrant with palm sugar, albeit a tad sweet. Although the influence of tea was not that strong, the whole combination managed to keep me sipping whole night long!
Crispy Cat fish salad with Green mango (RM13.50)
Starting off our dinner was the Crispy Cat fish salad with Green Mango, a nice balance of spicy and sour pickled mango combined with the crunch of cat fish skin was just too hard to resist! The fried cat fish skin was light and crispy but never oily. If you prefer to have it soft, let it soak up the sauces from the mango and pickles before putting it in your mouth. Simply juicy and nice!
Sour and spicy green mango
This dish was really an appetizer, for not only it cleansed my palate, it also ignited my appetite for the next dishes. Thumbs-up!
Thai Jasmine White rice (RM2.50)
Flying Chillies Special Fire Pot Tom Yam (RM25.50)
The star of the night was none other than the Flying Chillies Fire Pot Tom Yam! We chose to have seafood in it (or you could opt for just prawns) which had a few pieces of prawns, fish fillet and lots of calamari rings. Served on a piping hot pot with burning fire underneath, this pot of fiery hot soup sent me flying high! The soup was just the right balance of spicy and sour, with a tinge of sweetness from the seafood. The aroma was unmistakable and the taste, mind-blowing. I knew I hit it right on the spot when Saucer kept sipping away while wiping his dripping forehead.
