Thai Mongkut is located in the El Carmen district of Valencia, by Torres de Serrano. It is a little out of the way and not easy to find but well worth it.
John and I had a craving for Thai food and the best one we tried was in Alicante. A little too far to go for lunch because we had a friend visiting from the USA. Luckily, I remembered coming across a friend’s FB post about Thai Mongkut so we decided to give it a try.
As you enter, you are welcomed by something that immediately made me smile, tasteful décor that included wallpaper with monkeys. There are several pluses to the interior; mixture of round tables with very comfortable chairs, rectangle tables with banquet seating on one side and chairs on the other, all with enough space so you don’t feel like you are part of your neighbor’s party. At the time we were there for lunch, the acoustics seemed really good too.
The menu offers a wide variety of mouth-watering dishes that included seafood, chicken and vegetarian options. John and I shared prawns tempura and rollitos (vegetable rolls) while our friend chose Laab Kai (a type of chicken salad). Then for the main course, I chose Pad Panang (chicken curry) with was bursting with flavor and white rice topped with sesame seeds and was served in a very nice ceramic bowl. John chose Pad Thai with chicken and our friend chose Massaman Curry (another type of chicken curry). Everything was fresh and beautifully prepared. For dessert, my friend and I chose the Khao Niao Ma Muang (Coconut milk rice pudding with fresh mango). It was absolute heaven.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and I have already planned our next visit with some foodie friends from Alicante. Hope to see you there soon!
