[Bangkok] Dinner at See Fah @ Royal Bangkok SC Polo Club

See Fah is a popular chain serving Thai & Chinese dishes, especially claypot noodle dishes, to office workers or families out for a quick meal in a mall. It's also foreigner-friendly, with an accessible menu.

The most recent meal I had was actually at the members-only restaurant at the Royal Bangkok Sports Club Polo Club - you pass by the famous Soi Polo fried chicken restaurant on the way there. The restaurant is managed by See Fah, on a renewable 2-year contract. My understanding is that the standard of cooking here is better than in other See Fah outlets outside as the mainly Thai members-only Polo Club are a more demanding set of clientele than your average mall walker. For one, I liked the fact that all the dishes here are freshly-cooked to order:

- Khanom Jeeb (steamed pork-shrimp-crab dumplings) - it's a common Thai street snack of Teochew origins. The sprinkling of fried, minced garlic on top cuts down on the richness of the rich morsels.

- Thai-style spring rolls - very similar to Singapore popiah, except for the generous smothering on bean-sauce on top.

- Khao Tang Na Tang: crisp rice crackers with a delicious minced pork-coconut creme-galangal dip, done pretty well here.

- Shrimp toasts: a rather "farang"-friendly finger food, but very popular among Thais as well, served with molasses-cucumber-onion-chilli dip.

- Tom Kha Kai (chicken and galangal in coconut milk soup)

- Yen Ta Fo (Thai-style Yong Tau Fu) - it has a trademark reddish hue from the hoi-sin sauce added to the broth.

- Yam Woon Sen (glass noodle salad with minced pork, toasted groundnuts and dried shrimps)

- Braised pork-ribs on egg noodles in a claypot.

- Sate Muu (pork satays).

- Durian ice-cream - the best I'd tasted in Bangkok.

As the RSBC Polo Club is accessible to members only, you do need to know a member to get in. But See Fah outlets all over Bangkok also offers the above dishes.
