I was very fortunate to be invited along to the pre launch testing and tasting at Camile Thai Ballyhackamore.
I’m a huge fan of Camile Thai and have dined at the other location on the Lisburn Road. The concept is freshly prepared high quality and very authentic Thai food. This is evident from the decor to displays to the menu.
On arrival I was warmly welcomed and given the menu. The deal was to order off the menu and for the team to cook, pack and Despatch the food. It was very busy and all 20 odd staff must have been there prepping, cooking, and packing as well as hosting!!
I went for starters of chicken skewers (4), hot chicken wings (9) and crispy pork belly (lots). It took about 15 minutes to cook and took me about 15 to get home and the food was still piping hot!!
The battered dishes were served on crispy vermicelli and sweet chilli dipping sauce. The batter was crispy and full of flavour. The crispy vermicelli was a great touch. The skewers were very moist and full of satay flavour.
For mains I ordered Pad King Prawns with Jasmine Rice and chicken chu Chee curry with Jasmine rice. The chicken was very spicy and both dishes were beautiful. The pad prawns were distinctly flavoured with fish sauce and wonderful. If anything maybe the portion size was a bit small.
There are fresh juices and drinks on display and plenty of offers to avail. This is definitely a superb addition to ‘Bally-Snack-amor’
Big thank you to the staff and management for the kind invite and best wishes!!!
