Bangkok Sidewalk, Kirribilli

I don't know why I don't visit Kirribilli more often: it has such a lovely small town atmosphere and it's buzzing with nice restaurants, delis and cafes! On the night of the chocolate tasting, my friend and I decided to have a light bite to eat before indulging all that chocolate (I think we were worried we would get hungry...FAIL). I had found out about the Bangkok Sidewalk on my last visit to Papaya Thai in Cremorne and thought it would be nice to see what this place was like.

Coconut water was too sweet for my taste, but diluted with water it was perfectly refreshing.

Although decided to keep it light we ordered Kai Satay as an entrée. The marinated chicken was tender and juicy and the peanut sauce was delicious. I didn't care if it seemed wrong to serve these with white bread because it was perfect for soaking the last bits of the yummy sauce with.

This is light: Tom Yum Koong has prawns and oyster mushrooms in a spicy broth. I am not good with chilli and even though I was told this wasn't exactly super spicy, it was a tad too much for my palate. I had to seek refuge from my refreshing coconut water...

Tom Kha Kai has chicken and oyster mushrooms in mild coconut broth with cherry tomatoes and galangal. This was more for my liking as the broth was not nearly as spicy as the other one. The soup was lovely and warming on a cold winter evening.

I could definitely go back because this tiny eatery has a bit more character than your average Thai restaurant and I'll definitely have to go back to Kirribilli!

  1. I've always wanted to live in Kirribilli, but can't afford to :( Good to see that it has some decent food options, too, apart from the usual cafes.

  2. I love thai food, awesome place

  3. Yeah, don't know why I don't go to Kirribilli more often either...But as I told you, I've made an effort to eat more locally so I'll get there eventually!

    I was intrigued at first by the sandwich bread alongside the satay as well =p

  4. I've been there! The food was ok I thought, not mind blowing but not bad. One of my fave thai spots in Sydney is Spice I Am in Surry Hills, but I'm not sure if that's too spicy for you. Anyway, loved that you guys ate "light" and had three dishes hehehe...

  5. Ooh I think I've seen this place but haven't been. My friend lives there and I think this is on her regular takeaway rotation :)

  6. Kirribilli is such a lovely place, not that I get across the bridge very often! I did a double take when I saw that bread!

  7. Judging from the pictures of the decor and food, it certainly looks like it has a lot more character than your average Thai restaurant :)

  8. Bangkok sidewalk is my pick of the kirribilli thai places - try their soft shell crab next time (but stay away from their pad thai, there are so many better things on that menu!)

  9. How good is this place yeh! ... think i can say best thai ever...
