Laut – A Malaysian Thai Kitchen in New York City
After sampling Kathy Wong’s perfectly spiced Beef Rendang at a Malaysian Kitchen demo
earlier this year, I just had to sample her shrimp version at Laut, her Malaysian/Thai restaurant in Union Square. I wasn’t disappointed.
To start, I had her Rice Crepe ($7), a steamed rice crepe filled with a shrimp, chicken, mushroom and onion blend, with a ssweet and piquant plum chili sauce. A bottle of BTL riesling ($35) complemented the spiciness of the dish.
Next the flavorful Shrimp Rendang ($16) with just enough spice for my palatte, cooled a bit when mixed with the aromatic rice.
The Salmon Sambal dinner ($17) is also worth sampling with it’s also mixture of okra eggplant, string beans, bell pepper and onions in a spicy chili sauce.
I — for sure — will return to try some of Kathy’s other offerings.
