Reading so many blogs on Thai food recently made me craving for one myself. But to be honest, those high end Thai restaurants out there are WAY out of my budget for the moment. Too many commitments at the moment so I can't simply splurge on high-end dining. Well, once in a while during special occasion wouldn't hurt much I guess :)
With a baby around, those eateries nearby my house suddenly seemed to attractive, partly due to Sher Ryn's inability to stay awake for more than 3 hours. BU Centrepoint is a decent place to grab quick dinner near my house as the parking is ample and not congested. Less than 5 min drive and wah lah... I'm there!
There is only one place for Thai food in Centrepoint, and it's Black Canyon. However, this place is famous for its drink rather than its food. Personally I really like their coffee range.. now this is where the disclaimer that it's based on solely my opinion... and it's better compared to those mega-chain coffee stores around Klang Valley.
Beside a-la-carte, they also offer value set for lunch and dinner to choose from. We settled for Set D - chicken green curry, spicy stir fried combination of prawn, chicken & chilly, stir fried mixed vegetable with oyster sauce, stuffed omelette + 4 steamed rice @ RM39.90
Apart from the chicken green curry (not many chicken meats were found inside though) and stuffed omelette (minced meat with slight spicy sauce) which I thought were quite delicious (don't put high expectation ok?), the remaining two dishes were so so only. Most of the dishes were high in MSG contents!!! I had to douse my throat with lots of water once I got home :(
Additional spicy prawn tomyam RM12.90.. not really spicy as suggested by the name. The broth was quite salty to be honest. However the prawns were fresh and big too!
Black Canyon Iced Coffee - milk mixed with the old black devil poured into glass over crushed ice. My favourite coffee drink... beats the hell out of Starbucks or Coffee Bean's iced coffee... milky texture with some crushed coffee beans on top!
Fresh Thai tangerine juice RM5.50... it seemed overpriced as I can easily get this for only RM1 or RM2 on the streets of Bangkok or Chiang Mai (well, these are the only 2 places in Thailand that I'd gone to). But then this is Malaysia, and I couldn't complain much as the drink itself is fresh.
Leo's verdict - perhaps I should just stick to the drink and drink only. For coffee lovers, please drop by to try their Black Canyon iced coffee... at least once! Forget about their food if you are Thai food lovers, as you'd definitely be disappointed!
