Going VegeTHAIrian: Kon Rak Pak pledges a twist to the Klang Valley's typical vegetarian fare, narrowing the focus on cuisine from the Land of Smiles - green curries, stir-fries & tom yum soups, all absolutely meat-free, with no eggs, dairy, garlic or onions. There's a neat touch to the decor too, with portraits of confirmed or rumoured vegetarians & vegans through history - Abraham Lincoln to Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi to Steve Jobs, Johnny Depp to Andy Lau - gazing approvingly at diners.
Massaman 'mutton' curry (RM23), roast 'duck' curry (RM21), grilled lemongrass 'chicken' in panang sauce (RM21) - tasty fare that manages to reasonably channel the robust character of Thai cooking; we had no trouble finishing every moreish spoonful. Mock meat done decently: The 'mutton' is the most textured of the bunch, reminiscent of savoury meatballs, while the 'duck' supplies a tender, smoother chew. Complete the meal with stir-fried sliced Japanese pumpkin, pleasantly executed.
