Thai Style Laska with Roast Chicken

The secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside -Mark Twain

Want to make something warm for winter but don’t want to put in too much efforts ? ūüôā

I made my own version of Chicken Laska today, it was really simple, quick and tasty. See below for my easy recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbs of Olive oil
  • 250ml coconut milk
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 200 ml of water
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 1 roast chicken
  • 200g vermicelli noodles¬†Laksa Paste
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 bag of beansprout
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 jar of laska paste

METHOD

  • Step 1
    Heat oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Add Olive oil and onion. Stir until the onion is brown and add the laska paste from the jar. Meanwhile, pick the roast chicken into serving pieces and add into the pot. Stir for about 3 minutes, add the chicken stock and water. Bring to boil and add the coconut milk in. Add the fish sauce and bring to boil. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes (cut into serving pieces) and leave on stove for 3 minutes before turning the stove off.
  • Step 3
    Cook the noodles according to packet instructions. These noodles only takes about 5 minutes not like pasta so don’t leave too long on stove, it will be soggy. Drain noodles
You can use any vermicelli noodles, this is just an example of what they look like.

Serving instruction

In a bowl, add some beansprout, add the drained vermicelli and then laska soup over the noodle. If you like spicy then add some fresh chili and dried onion over the top.

 

Enjoy !

First stop: My favourite Thai restaurant in SYDNEY!

HOME THAI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Drumrollllllll*

Address: 299 Sussex St, Sydney NSW 2000
Phone: (02) 9261 5058

By far the best quality of food that is affordable in the city of Sydney in my personal experience.

If you love your spicy and savoury foods, Home Thai is definitely the go-to restaurant.

Located opposite to a car park on Sussex Street, so why not. Sometimes I think parking there is more expensive than the food itself.

What to order there for two?

  • 1 entry dish
  • A salad
  • A stir fry dish with rice to share
  • 1 dessert dish each

That is enough to make you feel bloated!

In the past I have ordered padthai almost everywhere I go, ( i know, the typical type )..but not anymore ever since I have discovered this restaurant.

For entree, I usually try out a different dishes every time I come here. Some of these are:

Entree

Chicken wings 8/10
Yum! colorful dimsims 7/10
Prawn cake 8/10

When you go to Homethai, the Roasted pork belly with bean sauce dish .. . Oh..My..GOD! It is soooo tasty guys, a MUST order dish.

Main

Roasted Pork Belly with bean sauce – Don’t forget to order rice separately rated 10/10
Beef salad with amazing fish sauce flavour! 9/10

Dessert

So before I go on, I must tell you guys that Home Thai has recently upgraded their menu. The famous black sticky rice with mango and custard dessert has been taken off their menu. I am devasted. The staff there told me that it takes too long and a lot of effort is put in so that’s why it has been removed. ūüė¶

They still keep the normal sticky rice with mango, but imho¬†this one is just okay…. Looks like I might need to live on the dips one for a while. Tough.

Mango and sticky rice. I would give this one 7/10.
Pandan sauce dip..yumm. This is super nice. 9/10

Even though I am thrilled that they have removed some dishes but overall Home Thai’s foods are mostly tasty (the odd occasion when the chef is not in the mood LOL).

Let me know if you guys are into the same kind of food!

Ciao!!!
