Yes, you read right. Makan Kings has landed in Bangkok, Thailand. After checking into the hotel, the first thing to do is......LOOK FOR FOOD!! Walked around Siam Square and found this restaurant. Have no idea what the name is as its written in Thai (Anyone knows?). It must be a chain of restaurants as in Siam Square alone there are 3 branches.
Started off with some ice cold chrysanthemum tea (top picture). Perfect of the hot weather in Bangkok. Munched on some deep fried pork skin (bottom picture). Tasted exactly like "Chu yao char". It was so good to munch that we had 8 packets!!
Next, the pork salad. This salad tasted fresh, sweet, sour and spicy. It had pork fillets and various vegetables. Nice start to a meal.
This is another salad. The papaya and raw crab salad. This particular salad was very good but also very very spicy! Those who cant take spicy food be warned. This salad consists of un-ripe papaya, tomatoes, ground nuts, various vegetables and raw crab meat. The crab meat was very salty but overall a very enjoyable dish.
The picture above is pork noodle in hot and sour soup ( not tom yam ), taste very nice. It consists of mince pork, pork meat ball, liver, taugeh and of course noodle. The noodlea are like glass noodle but fatter.
This picture is pork noodle in curry. It is exactly the same thing as the previous dish. The difference is the soup which is a very thick curry. Prefer the previous dish better.
The above picture is bbq pork rice. The rice is very nice (siamese rice taste better). The dish came with a soup and a special sauce. The sauce is a mixture of dark soya sauce, garlic and chili. The perfect sauce for the bbq pork.
To end the meal, had Thailand's version of Ais Kacang. Except this is not ais kacang. This one only had shaved ice, syrup and condensed milk. No red bean, no jelly, notthing! It did however hav a piece of bread (bottom picture) at the bottom. Guess that this dish is to help ease the pain on your tongue from all the spicy food! :D
