When I found myself visiting GRAB Thai street kitchen five times in a month, I knew I had to blog about it. The food is THAT good. With it's no nonsense industrial interior, friendly staff and delicious food, GRAB is a hot favoirte with the office workers of Old Street. There is always a que at lunch time - but thanks to the super efficent service you never have to wait to long for your delicious lunch.
GRAB serves all of your standard Thai dishes including; Green and Red Curries, Pad Thai, Tom Yam soup and sweet treats like mango and sticky rice. But my absolute favorite dish is the newly introduced Massaman curry chicken, a richly flavored combination of Chicken and potatoes cooked in massaman curry paste with onions, carrots, peanuts and bay leaves, topped with fried shallots.
For those who like their breakfast less stodgy than a full English, get to GRAB before 10.30am to try the traditional Thai breakfast dish Congee, which is a savoury rice porridge with fresh ginger, coriander, spring onion and a topping of either Chinese mushroom, minced tiger prawn or shredded flame grilled chicken.
Once you've tried the food at GRAB I guarantee you'll return again and again, so make sure you pick up a loyalty card at the till!
