Taste of Thai at Green Peppercorn

May 01, 2013

Green Peppercorn has been around for almost a year I believe and it certainly dishes up some great Thai food and also serves a delectable assortment of desserts. Green Peppercorn rivals Holy Basil at Canley Heights and I love how it is much more spacious, which means less waiting time but this place seems to always be busy as even on a Monday night this restaurant was in full business.
I mainly wanted to try this place for its dessert menu.

Chicken Pad See Ew $12.90
Their pad see ew is one of the best I have tried. Some will argue that it is too sweet but I found that this was not overwhelmingly sweet for me. I would say that it was the perfect balance between sweet and savoury and full of flavour. There is just something about it that keeps you wanting to eat more after the first mouthful. Pad see ew has definitely replaced pad thai as my favourite Thai dish.

Gang Ped Yang (Red Curry Roast Duck) $16.90
Being a duck and curry lover this was really delicious. The duck was nice and succulent and the bursts of curry flavour really made it so much more enjoyable. Definitely a great dish to complement white rice. I particularly liked the addition of lychees to the curry as it brought out a contrast of flavours.

Lychee Fruit Shake $6.50
It was warm day when we ordered this drink and it was certainly refreshing. The small size of the drink doesn't justify the price though.

Pandan Creme Brulee  $14.00
The pandan creme brulee is one of the most raved desserts at Green Peppercorn and it certainly didn't disappoint. The pandan flavour certainly brings a new twist to the creme brulee. It was not eggy at all and was quite smooth in texture. I particularly enjoyed the pandan wafers which were thin and crisp. 

Fried Ice-Cream $13.90
Fried ice cream is the most ingenious invention ever. Green Peppercorn is owned by the brother of the owner at Holy Basil and I would say that the fried ice cream at Green Peppercorn is definitely comparable if not identical to the fried ice cream at Holy Basil. This dessert is pure indulgence. The pastry is incredibly thin and crispy and I do not know how they do it but the creamy vanilla ice cream remains intact despite the heat it must endure to allow the pastry to cook. The coconut muesli and the fragrant caramel sauce brings this dessert to perfection.

Green Peppercorn is one of the best restaurants I know for Thai food and also for dessert if you need to satisfy that sugar craving. It is a tad expensive but well worth it for authentic Thai cuisine.
