Kompassion Thai Fusion Food Damansara Kim
I love Thai foods. In KL or Selangor, the Thai Food that I like and will recommend people would be either My Elephant by Doodee [Section 17], Good Evening Bangkok at 1Utama and the recent Golden Orchid Oriental Thai. All these are on my top of my personal favorites.
Located pretty outskirt from main stream location, this is on the same location along the same row with Euro Deli at Damansara Kim housing area.
KOMPASSION actually is a brand new Thai Fusion restaurant where the Head Chef named Kom which he is one of the owner of My Elephant. Passion means the chef’s passion in cooking to churn out more of his own personal creations which combine Thai with westernise cooking. What I like so much of the place is because of they serve pork! Being a pork lover, anything that cook with pork will get my attention.
From outside, you can clearly look into the restaurant at night. The transparent glass which allows you to see the restaurant at night to look inside its decoration and number of customers inside. If it is too full, you can either wait or go somewhere else. No need to waste time to find parking which is a challenge as well.
Kompasion Chicken Wings RM17.90
The chicken wings are a great start for the night. It is lightly marinated and yet satisfying. Over powered marination sometimes spoil the dish. A hint of ginger and garlics were used in the marination which we all love it a lot. 6 of us that night clear it in minutes when is served even though it is hot from the fryer.
Stir Fried Kai Lan RM15
Simple stir fried kai lan with garlics and topped with garlic bits.
Paneang Curry Pork Loin – RM35
The pork loin resembles the world #1 food massaman curry but somehow the pork were pre roasted first. The pork loin were very sinful but somehow for RM35 the portion are rather small. A hint of basil leaves were used in cooking this dish.
Tom Yum Fried Rice with Grilled Seafood – RM18.90
This Thai Fried rice is slightly different from what you get in other Taichow restaurants. Here they use unpolished rice and paired with grilled salmons and prawns. The sambal add on able to enhance the plate of fried rice too.
Kompassion Pork Leg Rice RM25.90
This is a must order in Thai Restaurants. When you travel to Thai, you will see Pork Leg rice in any of the restaurants. It is a common dish where they serve it in any eateries without fail. However, Chef Kom change the dish instead of using white rice, he use unpolished rice.
Green Curry Crispy Pork RM35
Roast pork cook in green curry style which use lots of basil leaves. The use of coconut milk gives it a creamy texture on the dish and goes very well with a plate of white rice.
Double Cooked Pork Belly and Soft Shell Crab with Cucumber Salad RM65
This is my life most expensive plate of salad ever ordered. It may sound pricey but after looking what is on the plate, I would say pretty reasonable price. It comes with roast pork belly garden greens with tobiko and a whole soft shell crab.
Double Cooked Pork Belly and Soft Shell Crab with Cucumber Salad
Soft shell crab.
Tom Yum Fish RM45
This is my favorite type of Tom Yam soup which is the clear type. You can ask for the level of spiciness that Thai people really eat which is level 1. That night we ordered level 2 and all barely can take it and say it was too spicy. For me it is just perfect! Level 1 will numb our taste bud away.
Fish fillet and Chinese coriander were used in cooking the tom yam soup.
Tako – RM10
Water chestnut cake
Ice Cream with Jackfruit and Red Ruby – RM10
Overall I would say this is a mid range Thai food where the price are slightly higher compared to the shop decoration. Some shop decoration are very nice but foods are priced lower. If you ask me will I go back for its food? I would say YES. The foods quality are top notch and affordable. Here you get quality more than quantity. If you opt for quantity, Kompassion is not your choice.
