Chilli Jam Thai Restaurant, Concord


So when I talk about Thai food to others, people often ask me 'have you been to Holy Basil?' Thank goodness I can finally say yes or the other question would be 'have you been to Chilli Jam'. I always hear good things about it so I have been quite curious to check it out myself plus how can I ever say no Thai food?!

Pineapple Fried Rice - $19.90

When you are as greedy and or hungry as me, one would love to go with a big group of people because it means we can try as many different things on the menu as possible and not look like a fat pigs for over ordering *rubs tummy

Tom Yum Seafood Soup - $9.90
Chicken Pad Thai - $15.90
Duck salad - $18.90
Stir fried vegetables
Chicken and papaya salad - $18.90
Tom Yum soup is a must - I get it religiously as some of you may already know! It was a decent batch but I personally didn't find it chilli enough (but then again when will I ever?). Personally, the one at Holy Basil was better. The pad thai and the pineapple fried rice were crazy though. It was sooo goood. The pad thai tasted fresh and the fried rice was sweet from the large chunks of pineapple. To be honest, I don't know if it tasted better because of the fact it was served in a pineapple. I always fall for those types of presentations so I never really know! The pad thai was so good we ended up ordering a second plate, everyone wanted more. Everyone wanted more!!

  1. I really appreciate the fact there's so many Thai restaurants these days, but I find that a lot of their dishes are similar to Viet dishes I eat at home. Except for the Tom Yum soup, that looks really good!!! and yes, you're a chilli lover too? I like restaurants that give a generous dose of chilli sauce :) But wow, fried rice in a pineapple, now that's creative!!

  2. Looks like we order almost the same things when we go to a thai restaurant! :P I must say I agree with Tina in the above comment where she says there's heaps of thai restaurants around but are almost along the same level as Viet dishes.

  8. Love it when Thai pineapple fried rice is served in a pineapple shell! I know it makes no difference to the taste, but the appearance always makes it seem more attractive =p

    Had Thai last night and think I'm still getting over the delayed heat from the papaya salad!

  9. Selection of good and fresh ingredient is the most important factor of any food recipe, that can bring you the ethnic taste and perfect aroma which can stimulate your appetite. Thank you for caring these hi-lighted factors. Restaurant Coolangatta
