Bkk: #2.2 – One of our Best lunch ever

This place I am about to blog about, has an equal agreed vote that this was one of our best meal of our trip!
So after they completed climbing temples and visiting palaces, trooper ali brought us here to finish off the afternoon

Entrance: Directly opposite mango Tango

deco inside 🙂

I must make an acknowledgement. I was late because I was caught in the Jam, so all the next few well taken pictures are taken by troopie mother who volunteered and thoughtfully took all the pictures for me before the food got wacked by everyone 🙂

Fried morning glory and Thai Fish cake

OOo and they have this! something like what was found in a-roy

Thai style ‘otah’ in a coconut

and …. we ordered 2 plates of :

Pad Thai

of course, not forgetting :

Thai Green Chicken Curry

Verdict: 5/5 of us are coming back here to eat if we return to Bangkok! I think the pictures can speak for itself. I think we were all famished at the same time, but the pictures are not arranged in an order of preference. We cleaned up everything spotless 🙂 The Thai food here is probably catered more to our ‘tourist-y’ taste buds, but nonetheless one of the most enjoyable meals 🙂 the Pad Thai was awesome in that it was not too dry? and had alot of sauce. The green curry was SPICY but had a real kick to it 🙂 The Thai style Otah was also very rich and tasty when eaten with the coconut flesh together. Definite awesome recommendation 🙂

Bangkok: #2.1

So, the troops went on to visit the temples of thailand. .. Because of religious purposes and also I don’t really have a keen interest to visit temples, so I thought I just go and explore around the food basement of Siam Square!!! Well why not?? 🙂 In the air con and away from the heat :p  so I found this place from trip advisors .. as reccomended ..

Entrance of the Shop

Shop Interior – Nostalgic feel  🙂

So lazing the afternoon away, I ordered myself:

Iced Mocha

Mushroom and Ham Crepe With Cheese

Close up

Verdict: I will totally go back for it ! Pure awesomeness and creaminess to the max!! but for 1, its a little too much after a while! I couldn’t finish eating the whole thing. The creamy texture however, it was like a mixture of cheese and cream + milk?seems to be I think .. But awesome combination 🙂

Bangkok: #1.2

So we were walking around chinatown exploring the place and I must say, its really packed with loads of food!!! In my fondest memory of going to Bangkok, ( I haven’t been back there since .. around maybe 10 years ago?)  I remember buying their version of a “roti prata” from this push cart makeshift stall … and being a kid, anything sweet was just awesome! I remember eating  it drizzled with condensed milk and topped with sugar!!!! talk about sugar high 🙂 AND I managed to find a similar! so I thought I just had to buy it and let the crew try!

Stall 🙂

and of course:

Banana filling! topped with condensed milk and sugar!

 

and as we continued walking on .. the troopie beaties and kay + phil decided that since they travelled all the way here, we should all try the thai style of sharksfin and birds nest .. As we ploughed through the different rows of stores .. they finally found one where the fins are thick and the birds nest is not diluted :

Yup we headed in here

Kitchen outside 🙂

 

so of course what we came for :

Thick Sharks Fin Soup

Sharks fin soup Condiment : Raw bean Sprouts and Coriander 

and of course, as sighted in the kitchen :

Fresh Birds Nest

and when its served to us :

Red Birds Nest

 

Verdict: Troopies were all very happy! We shared it all and glad that we managed to satisfy all their cravings 🙂  Sorry I do not know where the exact address of this place is, but its further down from the same side of TK seafood, just further down from them towards the red shirt side.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BKK: #1.1

I last minute decided to hop on a trip to Bangkok with my crew 🙂  (one of the most last minute decisions that I have ever made in my life – no exaggerations intended) . And of which, I have now compiled a list of food places that we visited and enjoyed. 🙂

So we took the “airport express” straight to our hotel ( we stayed at pullman hotel at king complex)

Welcome juice: Carrot and orange mixed? refreshing enough ..

The first place, as chronologically visited, is our first stop : Chinatown!!!!! because we arrived late afternoon in bangkok, we decided to grab an early dinner. So as reccomended by troopie kay, TK Seafood. The picture below is a picture of the kitchen! literally dinning by the road side .. with the cars trying to drive through the roads .. it felt like an authentic thai experience 🙂 Right opposite theres also a similar joint, with their crew all dressed in red polo shirts.. but we were reccomended this one instead! Spot those with the green polo shirts 🙂

ok, following on, so we ordered to share among 5 of us :

Stir Fried Water Morning Glory

River Prawn with Glass Noodles and Black Pepper

Oyster Thai Omelet

Fried Stuffed Crab with Crab Meat and Glass Noodle

Seafood Lemon Grass Soup with Milk ( aka Tom Yum Soup)

 

Verdict: 4.5/5 of us will return! Thankfully we arrived early and managed to get seats, before people started coming and queuing up for seats … The tom Yum Soup was lethal .. for a few sips, you could not taste the spiciness until it slowly kicks in! and it was quite richly but not too thick until you feel like throwing up after a few sips .. 🙂 This was one of my favourite dishes .. 🙂 (HMM Idea! ok watch out for the next post in a different format)
The stuffed crab was also quite well received, and so was the oyster omelet 🙂 My crew thoroughly enjoyed the food and we finished it up all in a bit 🙂
