Although the short holiday in Spain meant mainly seafood to us, we decided to take a break from the Andalusian cuisine and have a lunch at Yuu Taley at the Eastern corner of Playa Burriana, behind Ayo’s.
After couple of visits in Thailand, we were already fans of their cuisine and prepared our versions of the classics at home weekly.
Portion size is always a bit of a gamble so we decided to go with three Thai style tapas and one main course, all to share for two of us.
Fresh spring rolls (not deep-fried like in Chinese cuisine) were filled with fresh vegetables and herbs accompanied by a dipping sauce of sweet, sour and salty flavours. Gorgeous! Not too heavy after hot hours at the beach.
Chicken satay with peanut sauce, one my personal favourites anywhere, was also done right with authentic flavours. This is a dish that everyone would like. Simple but awesome.
Third tapa was a Thai style beef salad. Carrot, lettuce and sprout salad that was dressed with red nam jim (or similar) hot and salty dressing. Not bad at all!
Pad thai, the classic, came with cooked shrimps and hoisin marinated tofu that was sliced nicely thin. The noodles were packed with flavour and the egg, sometimes fried and served on top, was mixed in.
As a whole it belong to our all-time top 5 pad thais
After the lunch, we were left with a positive surprise. I guess others have too because of five star reviews at Trip Advisor. There was not just one or two dishes that were good but all of them. Tastes were not just almost there but all the way. And if you wonder about portion sizes, this combination was almost too generous for us. Yuu Taley is worth a visit after you have had your paellas.
