Amporn Thai Food
Cast your mind to the islands of Siam and it’s almost a guarantee a pad thai will feature in your fantasies. Thailand’s stir-fried noodle dish is a guaranteed crowd pleaser all the way from the streets of Bangkok to the tables of Hong Kong. Holly Graham seeks out the city’s most wok-and-roll pad thais Kowloon City’s moniker, Little Bangkok, is well justified. Though it may seem a trek for those not dwelling across the harbour, what with the lack of an MTR station, it’s infinitely quicker than a plane ride to Bangkok and the food is equally legit. Our top Thai pick is Amporn Thai Food, housed inside Kowloon City’s cooked food center. The pad thai here is packed full of meaty prawns, peanuts and crunchy green onions. It compliments most of the dishes on the deliciously varied menu and the chefs don’t skimp on the spice either. $42, Shop 9, 3/F, Kowloon City Municipal Services Bldg, 100 Nga Tsin Wai Rd, Kowloon City, 2382 4622.
