FOOD: Lobbee Thai Connection @ Empire Damansara, Kuala Lumpur
Those of you who likes sour and spicy food, I'm pretty sure Thai food has been one of your choice of food just like me!
Recently, I was enchanted to receive an invite for a review at Lobbee Thai Connection, Empire Damansara. In case you're not familiar with this place, it is located at the Lower Ground level ( which is the same level as the parking area).
With an spacious, modern and comfy place to dine in, you will also realize that the food here is not the "usual" or authentic Thai food that you have in mind because they have modified and add in a little kick into their food to deviate from the usual Thai food.
We were served with a range of different special drinks to start off the review.
Red Lemon Soda
Isn't this drink unique?
The idea of this was from Thailand itself but the recipe is special and can only be found at Lobbee! By the way, this was my personal favourite having a combination of sweet and sourish taste to it! Totally love it!
Lobbee Iced Tea
A refreshing roasted tea with base of lychee especially during these hot season.
Iced Butterfly Pea Lime Juice
If you're wondering, the blue colour to this drink was made from the same as in ' nasi kerabu' butterfly pea flower. So, it is a natural colouring and it's not harmful!
Pouring the lime juice in will actually change the colour of the drink!

Iced Butterfly Pea Milk
Fried Potato with Thai Salad Dressing
Thai Salad Dressing
Consist of peanuts, long beans, chilly, fish sauce & palm sugar
The way of eating this is to pour the Thai salad dressing into the plate of fried potatoes and mixed it well. The sauce compliments the fried potatoes really well that it gives an unique combination of spicy, sour and salty taste to it.
Chicken Skewers with Sticky Rice
This is apparently the favourite appetizers in the north east part of Thailand. However, in Thailand, pork is used but Lobbee is a pork free restaurant. So, chicken thigh and breast is used. The meats are marinated and grilled on a pan before serving it together with sticky rice. I realised that the sticky rice served in this dish is slightly different from the usual sticky rice as it is chewier and harder and less oily.
Thai Squid Cake
(served with Thai Chilli sauce)
This is a slight modified version of the Thai fishcake as squid is used which makes it a little more chewier and extra bites to it! A very flavourful and tasty appetizer.
Stir Fried Flat Noodle with Chickent & Brown Squid
Served with eggs, lettuce, brown squid, topped with fried chicken skin for more crispy taste to it and lastly garnished with some spring onions. The noodles used in here are not "hor fun" but it's actually "chee cheong fun" simply because it give a smoother texture to this dish.
Being the highlight of the review, it is served with Asian Green Lobster, King crab legs, Salmon, squid, mussels, and soft boiled eggs. Also, you may also have a choice of Thai Kuey Teow/ Thai instant noodle/ Thai flat noodle/ vermicelli. For those seafood and Thai food lovers, this would be the bowl of goodness you've been searching for! This totally have a generous portion of seafood sufficient for 3-4 pax.
Food here was tasty and delicious! I will definitely recommend to come here if you're craving for some Thai food. Prices are reasonable with the amount that we get.
Last but not least, I would also thank Lobbee for organising such delicious session! My foodie friends and I definitely enjoyed the meal!
