Lunch at Ying Thai 2: Thai Restaurant in Lygon Street, Carlton, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA

Last week a fellow Malaysian blogger has moved down under to Melbourne Victoria. She is Ellie or better known as MissyCheerio of MissyCheerio.com. Sadly, I didn’t manage to attend her farewell party in Kuala Lumpur. However, I did promise her to meet up in Melbourne instead. I kept my promise.

We met up for a late lunch at this famous Thai restaurant in Lygon Street by the name of Ying Thai 2.

Located at 110, Lygon Street, it is hard to miss out Ying Thai 2 due to its striking colours.

The interior is filled with “fun” colours.

They have set lunches but I prefer to order ala carte.

Can you spot Ellie?
We ordered the Ice Tea (AU$3.50) and Ice White Coffee (AU$3.50). To be frank, the Ice white coffee was pretty good. I never thought to have one in Melbourne.

I ordered the Khao Pud with crab meat or the Thai Style Fried Rice with crab meat (AU$ 14.90). The fried rice was really good and the portion is huge for an Asian. The fried rice is fragrant with generous of crab meat. Sadly, it didn’t look colourful enough for picture but the taste was good.

Ellie ordered the Tom Yam Seafood Sai Sen or the Tom Yam Seafood Glass Noodle with Soup (AU$10.90). She ordered extra hot and the waitress happily nodded. The soup was really tasty.

Yeah that was my lunch date, Ellie!
Well, the food there was really good. It is as good as the original Thai restaurants in Thailand. It was a great place for get together as it was cozy and quiet. Ying Thai 2 really deserves its popularity and it is recommended for Thai food lovers in Melbourne. It was nice to meet up with Ellie and it was an awesome lunc.
