Lunch @ Magic City

It's been a while since we last dined here - a combination of being out of the country and Magic City being closed for "refurbishment". With not much open, we decide to check out the new menu.

It takes a while to select something from the menu, not because everything sounded great, it was more the case of not finding something that really appealed. Eventually we settled on a few dishes and when asked if we wanted to share the mains, we agreed as that would mean we'd be able to pick and choose.

For starters:
Crab and sweet corn dumpling with Pat Chun chilli dipping sauce ($4.50)

When it came to our mains the waitress informed us that they would be served one at a time because there wasn't enough room on the table. Now that would be reasonable enough if we weren't the only people in the restaurant! We both looked at the empty tables beside us and wondered just how difficult it would it be to just join the tables together.

The first dish to come out
Coconut marinated salmon , green mango salad and spicy Thai caramel ($14.50)

It wasn't until near the end of this dish that Paalo finally tasted the coconut - overly acidic, this is a dish I couldn't really eat.

The second dish
Green curry of prawn with baby corn and Thai basil ($20) with steamed Jasmine Rice ($2.50)

The curry itself was quite runny but quite tasty - five fresh king prawns lurked in the curry.
