It's a pretty rare occasion when you try a new restaurant, and loved everything you ordered. Went early on a Friday night to get seats, arrived around 6:30pm and there was already a line but they were slowly beginning to  seat people. We were one of the last 2 and got seated at the bar. Loved the seat because we were right in front of the kitchen and was fascinating to see the chefs cook, but probably not as comfortable as their regular tables. Caramelized Coconut & Prawn, Betel Leaf Wraps  泰式檳榔

I had this dish in Thailand but struggled to find a Thai restaurant in Hong Kong that made these betel leaf wraps so I was very excited to see this on the menu! The filling is sweet and crunchy, which compliments the leaf nicely. Highly underrated as a Thai dish so I would highly recommend you try this.

This was the surprise of the night, it was unlike any other curry I've had before. The curry was rich with seafood flavour from the prawns and really creamy. My boyfriend was pretty much drinking it like a soup! The prawns were nicely cooked too. If anything, I wish there was more served up in the curry (maybe other veg). The roti was served as it should be (flaky & fluffed up!) and was the perfect vehicle to the soak up the curry. LOVE.

Because we sat by the bar, we essentially watched this DELISH fried rice get made right in front of us! As Chinese people would say, it had a great amount of 鑊氣 (...breath of a wok?!), which everyone knows is what makes a fried rice go from mediocre to AMAZING.  The dish had nice chunks of crabmeat and egg throughout, I liked the touch of the fried garlic in it as well. It was served with Thai chilli sauce, cucumbers and a wedge of lime, which collectively tied the dish together. Definitely recommend this if you want to stray away from always getting your classic Pad Thai.

To finish off what was already an incredibly yummy but filling meal, we wanted to try the coconut ice cream. It was served in a young coconut shell, topped with shaved young coconut, peanuts and corn. The ice cream was really smooth, creamy and not too sweet. I personally loved the corn topping as I felt it brought some interest to the dessert and complimented the coconut flavours well (this is how they do it in Thailand isn't it). Not a bad way to round out a meal eh? 

Overall, one of the best places I've eaten at for a while. Samsen is a must try for foodies, there are too many commonplace Thai restaurants in the city but this is definitely not one of them. And trust me when I say, my standards for food are bloody HIGH. 

Note: we also ordered a drink each - a glass of white wine and a gin cocktail with rose syrup (it was yum! but I lost the name of it). Both were ~$98, so yeah, drinks are pricey but what's new.
