Little Bangkok! A Wet Thai Village is somewhat hidden in the view of the city. Located just beside Sungai Kerayong, Off Jalan Chan Sow Lin 5, a few housing/industrial roads have to be crossed to reach the hidden fishing pond and restaurant area. Fortunately a few direction banners was put up to direct. A Wet Thai Village's is being made in such a way that it resembles some village you would find in Bangkok. With little huts for each table, specialized pathways joining all the tables, simple pathway decorations with lights and some cheesy Thai music playing all the way; I really thought I was in Thailand for sure!
A Wet Thai Village (the owner's name is Ah Wet; hence the restaurant name) is divided into two sections; which is the ala carte Thai cuisine where I had; and the steamboat section. Both are located right beside a pond/river.
Mango kerabu. Sourish and fresh. Perfect for beginning a meal.
White seafood tom yam. Fiery and spicy with lots and lots of seafood. Nice! There's chili flakes and spices in it. I had two servings of this. One of my friend who had just went to Thailand few days ago even said A Wet's version was better than what he had at Thailand.
14 pieces of Pandan Chicken. Ordered just enough for 1 for each. Tasted like how Pandan Chicken should taste like, turmeric and some spices. Was ok.

Fish (left) and prawn (right) cakes. The fish cakes are packed with fish and spices flavor; while the prawn cakes are so-so with crispy breaded skins.
Salt barbequed fish. This is nice; I always love this dish here at A Wet's. The scales of the fish is applied with lots of salt and are never scale off; to give it protection while barbecuing. Herbs are inserted through the mouth opening to give it extra flavor. To eat, just gently tear off the skin and enjoy the flesh inside! Yum, what you get is the natural juicy taste of how a fish should be enjoyed, without any other sauces overpowering it. The ideal fish to be enjoyed with this cooking style would be the Tilapia; but they ran out of it. We had the Haruan instead. Go for the Tilapia if possible. Haruan has this hint of muddy taste, verdict of self-rearing fishes.

Satisfying meal, great time, great birthday celebration to three of my friends. A very late HAPPY BIRTHDAY to 3 of you and hope you guys enjoyed the dinner we had planned. =)
