We thought Friday during the day would be easier for shopping than our usual Saturday morning at the Broadway Shopping Centre. Harris Farms was surprisingly quiet, but the mall was pretty busy. Where to eat then for lunch? We skipped our usual favourite, Merchants of Ultimo, to try somewhere new. Also, we’re experimenting with the keto diet, so where could we eat?
Pepper Seeds! Though the first reason we were there was that husband couldn’t manage to read the lettering on the sign, which made us curious. An interesting marketing technique. The Thai writing is up top, and the sub-title “Boutique Thai Bites” is bigger than the name of the restaurant. Confusing.
But for me, this was a perfect little meal. I had a squid salad. Husband had pork belly. My squid really was tasty and a nice spicy sauce, but I shouldn’t really kid myself: pork belly wins over nearly every other dish for me, and this was a great rendition, crispy and fatty. Yum yum.
In any case, it’s a casual fast-food sort of joint, not a lot of tables, with cheery service and a reasonable selection on the menu (and I think it’s the only Thai restaurant in the mall). So, if that’s what you’re hankering for, I’m happy to recommend Pepper Seeds.
