The following are signature Thai treats:
There are actually alot of Thai Cuisine in Malaysia. We all just love Thai. Some of my friends heading to Thailand is like their yearly checkin for shopping and eating. When comes to Thai food, it is all the usual not till recently I tried this Rod Dee Ded at Uptown Damansara. This is just not your typical Thai food joint. Establish since 1965 in Bangkok and this would be their first outlet in Malaysia and they are operating in SS21, Uptown Damansara. Rod dee ded also means delicious.
Rod Dee Ded Specialist in beef as the main ingredient, their broth is cooked for at least 12 hours. Also shower beef is one of their signature dish. Ingredients are from Halal certified beef supplier. So for my muslim friends, here would be one of your destination too.
All beef for shower beef are Australian wagyu beef. 2 types: premium and prime wagyu
There are 2 ways of eating this.
1. Hotpot (original soup / Spicy soup @ RM 9.80 each)
2. Order as a la carte and pair with rice/noodle
Both of the soup have its own unique flavour, and if you ask me to really really choose one, then I think I like the original soup more. Spicy soup give you Umami taste. Imagine that the soup stock is cook with good quality beef bones for more than 12 hours.
ROD DEE DED, establish in 1965, is a 50-year-old restaurant chain
Rod Dee Ded is offering all beef lovers to enjoy shower beef and hot pot. I am pretty sure you are not familiar with the word Shower Beef. The main reason this restaurant was introduced in Malaysia is because the owner finds it difficult to find quality beef dishes here. Therefore, she decided to open a restaurant where beef lovers can get to eat beef which is tender and has good texture. Source
The name of the restaurant directly translates to the word ‘Delicious’ and delicious it most certainly is. Ever since first opening their doors in 1965, Rod Dee Ded has become well known for their authentic Thai food, and famous for their ‘Shower Beef’.
“But what is ‘Shower Beef’??”
Well, it’s like hot pot shabu-shabu, but better.
First, let’s talk about the broth. It’s a beef based stew made from original ingredients sourced from Thailand, and boiled for many long hours. The beef itself that the stew is made from and the beef slices that are served are all Australian beef, guaranteed to give you that rich meaty flavour. It comes in two flavours: original and spicy.
Once the broth is boiled to perfection, it is served with your typical hot pot vegetable spread as well as the option of three different cuts of beef for you to “shower” (we’re getting to that part, don’t worry). You can choose either the Premium tier of meats that have an Australian Marbling grade of 4-5, or the Prime tier which serves grades 6-7. The three cuts available in each tier are Ribeye, Oyster Blade, and Striploin.
Then, the fun part happens. You take the wagyu beef and place it in a bowl, then gently scoop the broth of your choice in, angling it as to make sure you’re not ‘shocking’ the beef and cooking it too fast. Then you slowly ‘shower’ it by mixing it in with the soup and carefully pouring the soup over it. For added flavour, take the broth that has been used to shower the beef and spoon it back into the hot pot to stew with the rest of the vegetables.
This method is tried and true, you definitely get so much more character out of the beef by showering it with the broth instead of dunking it straight into the boiling hot pot soup. Each different cut showered and then mixed with the soup gives the broth a different flavour profile. The Ribeye has the classic meaty taste with just the right marbling, and practically falls apart in your mouth when you eat it. The Oyster Blade cut provides a hint of sweetness to the soup, and the Striploin gives the heaviest profile to the broth and would definitely be the prime choice for all the carnivores out there.
Not only does Rod Dee Ded have great Shower Beef, they also have a pretty extensive selection of Thai cuisine favourites like Red and Green curries, available with beef and chicken respectively, Pad Thai, and Pad Ka Pow. But our personal favourites from the menu was the Beef Claypot Brisket and the Pad Kee Mao Chicken noodles. Visit source…
