Thai Siam - Deep Fried Oysters, Moreton Bay Bugs, Espresso Martini - Cleveland, Brisbane Australia

It's date night and since it is a nice Autumn night we decide to walk to our favourite restaurant, Thai Siam which is just around the corner. It is a busy Saturday night and we are just in luck - they have one table left and it is outside. Apologies in advance for the poor quality of photos due to low lighting. 


We are presented with the drinks menu and I decide to try an Espresso Martini cocktail. I've always wanted to try and it decide that tonight is the night! I don't usually drink coffee after 3pm but I decide the caffeine buzz will be worth it. 


The espresso martini is AMAZING. It is a mixture of Vodka, Kahlua, Baileys and Espresso Coffee and tastes like a chocolate covered coffee bean. Delicious! A great start to the evening.


Hubby chooses the entree of Deep Fried Oysters. Always a hit! Five oysters to share with a sweet chilli dipping sauce. Lovely!



Perusing the menu I decide to go for one of my favourites - Moreton Bay bugs with salt and pepper ($28) which includes a salad underneath the bugs. I could eat this every day!


The Moreton Bay Bugs arrive and I take a photo before hubby and I tear into the four halves. The flesh is so sweet and flavoursome, the salt and pepper seasoning so moreish. This is the type of meal that you can only really eat properly with your fingers. You will definitely need the wet napkins provided to clean up the mess on completion.


We decide that an entree and main was more than enough to sate us after the Twelve Boar Buffalo Wings with Sweet Potato Fries and Coleslaw for lunch. The bill arrives and we leave happily, another great date night at Thai Siam Cleveland.
