Last time I was at T for Thai, 3 people split 12 dishes (see post). Read that again. 3 people, 12 dishes. Just slightly excessive but for the sake of a tasting, we stuffed down as many dishes as we could for variety.
This time, I returned to T for Thai and narrowed down exactly what a meal for two (maybe three) should look like for people with normal stomach capacities. T for Thai is definitely at the top of my list for Thai food in Shanghai and below are my top dishes here.
Chicken satay (RMB¥68) is the juiciest.
Nam tok mu (RMB¥88) pork salad with herbs, apple and shallot.
Lon gabi (RMB¥78) shrimp paste simmered in coconut cream seasoned with palm sugar, tamarind, and served with raw vegetable and crispy pork belly.
Gaeng panaeng gaem nua (RMB¥108) gently braised beef cheek in pannaeng curry with kaffir lime is my favorite curry here.
Gaeng pong wan mhu sam chan (RMB¥88) slow braised pork belly in yellow curry and kaffir lime offers a fattier option.
Koa-niew moon mamuang (RMB¥48) mango and sticky rice, served with coconut sauce.
I forgot to order the beef basil (RMB¥88), which is also a favorite of mine here. Adding that, this meal is probably enough for three people.
