Tell me about it -- Helen Perry, 271 8036 or email@example.com Dining By HELEN PERRY BOOK me a berth at the Marina Thai Café any night of the week and I’d be one happy diner. This new addition to Half Moon Bay, sits slap bang in front of the water where row upon row of boats and yachts pro- vide a busy maritime outlook. Set up by Pop and May Jatetin, who also own the two Thai Family restau- rants, one at Eastern Beach the other in Pakuranga, Marina Thai may have slipped quietly into the new develop- ment but it has created a buzz. Man about the house and I popped in twice within a week and found it packed each time. In fact, we snagged the last table on our ﬁrst visit so made sure to book second time round. And our return was based purely on the fact that I enjoyed some new items on the menu which has taken a different direction from Pop’s other venues. For example, at Marina Thai we opted for entrees of chicken tulips, stuffed chicken wings and pork satay, all $8 and all very yummy. The thin-sliced pork was unexpect- edly tender although we were disap- pointed that all three entrees came with Thai chilli sauce. Tasty as it was, some variation would have been nice. In par- ticular I felt the pork might have done better with a plum or perhaps a tama- rind accompaniment. Nevertheless, give me the chicken wings stuffed with minced chicken, prawns and vermicelli again and I’ll make them disappear fast. When it came to mains we hesitated over a curry – would it be too heavy at Thai me up at SAUCY: Goong sauce ma kham.
