It has been a while since I last went to Westfields Eastgardens and the ground floor has changed somewhat since then. There's now a number of eateries on the bottom floor hosting a new casual dining precinct with restaurants such as Bondi Pizza, Sedap, Kingston & co. and Ribs and Rumps amongst others.
One of these others is Lang Suan Thai. Although there's a few chains of these around Sydney, this was actually the first time I've been to this place. As we were there for lunch and there was just the two of us, we decided to get separate dishes rather than plates to share.
Chicken Cashew Nut Lad Kao ~ $12 - pieces of chicken breast wok fried with a combination of vegetables and sprinkled with cashews. A fairly standard dish, nothing to write home about but tasty nonetheless.
Soft shell crab pad thai ~$15 - a dish that I haven't seen before, combining my love of soft shell crab with the wok-breathed pad thai. The soft shell crab was deep-fried to a crispy golden brown with basic seasoning. The rice noodles were soft with just the right amount of chewiness. A good alternative to your stock standard chicken/beef/pork pad Thai varieties.
