Where to get into one’s food and culture when you are in a new place?!
Market is my answer; whether it is night market, wet market or dry market.
Last month I was travelling to Chiang Mai with my bff couple after a long planning and we actually bought the air ticket last year.
When I was in Bangkok, I visited the floating market, chatuchak market
When I was in Hua Hin, I went to their night market and some handicraft market.
And for Chiang Mai, of course must not miss out the MARKETs!
While I was attending my cousin’s wedding in Hai Yai Thailand, I had this opportunity (after my last visit N years ago) to travel around Hai Yai for food and a little bit of shopping. We were brought over to Sane Mai Thai Restaurant for dinner just the night before the wedding. I do hope I provide the correct information as I did not take down any of them, not the restaurant’s information and not even the dishes we ordered.
I have heard/read so much about this no-frills Thai kopitiam – Surisit; tucked in one corner in the TTDI neighbourhood, serving authentic Thai dishes in this hawker-liked/ kopitiam environment. Simple décor with marble-topped tables, wooden chairs, and utensils and variety of seasonings on the tables; decorated same as how it looks like in those kopitiam in Thailand. Contunue Reading
I always have those sudden special cravings when the weather turns chilling. Just last Saturday, the weather was so perfect, chilly and cool and then my tastebuds craved for something different. That was why I brought my family here, for something different and exotic – I’m Spicy Thai Restaurant
Thai food is delicious anywhere in the world, but if you love Thai food, you should plan a trip to Thailand. They have a larger variety and even the street food is really good. Expedia offers good deals in travel packages to Thailand, that way, you can enjoy your food filled holidays on budget.
Bangkok is not just well-known for the congested traffic (on the road) during the peak hours, but also another type of transportation that gives the hectic jam (in the canal); Yes… the canal that full with boats.
Located about 100km southwest away from Bangkok, there is this most famous floating market – Damnoen Saduak Floating market in Ratchaburi Province. On the way back to Bangkok (from Hua Hin), we had this little small sight-seeing activity here.
When we were travelling up to the north, we were brought to Khun Thai Restaurant by one of our family’s friends who is a resident in Butterworth. With the name, Khun Thai, you may have guessed what kind of cuisine they are serving.
Khun Thai Restaurant serves delicious authentic Thai cuisine where they emphasize on seafood and grilled stuff; and allow the customer to dine al fresco-ly.
The ambiance is kind of romantic when the dusk falls. One can choose to dine ‘indoor’ (tables under a roof) or ‘outdoor’ (under the bamboo and straw huts), cute and romantic, don’t you think so?! But you may find yourself dueling with the mosquitoes sometimes.
Hola!!! Time to continue with my Thailand holiday back in February.
You can view here for the Summary of the trip and here for the eco vintage village in Plearnwan, Hua Hin.
Kanchanaburi is a little town located about 130 kilometers west of Bangkok. It takes about 3 hours ride to get there (from Bangkok). If you love some adventurous journey, you may opt to travel by train which takes up to 5 hours from Bangkok
I stayed in this hotel in Amphoes Muang (Kanchanaburi city) – River Kwai Hotel.
It is located at the prime location where one easily accesses to the famous River Kwai Bridge and other attractions.
Let’s have FUN at Sanook, shall we?!?!?!
Sanook is a hidden fun place at Plaza Kelana Jaya; a restaurant holding 2 concepts for you to have your meals. Love the lake view, you can choose to dine at Alfresco@Sanook which is located on the ground floor, facing the lake. Or you can opt to dine-in in Arriba@Sanook where music is played all night long.
We were greeted friendly by the godfather who is the owner, the friendly people pleaser, chief people pleaser, chief food artist…. ooohhh, they are actually the people running Sanook, the executives, chefs, waiters… how lovely are their titles!
Sanook serves scrumptious spread of dishes from all over the world which include Asian cuisine, Western fares as well as Italian pasta and wood oven pizza! Not to forget their tapas which are really ‘something’ to go with your drinks.
Let’s start the meal with Tapas Canapes:
Grilled Zucchini with Prawns and Aioli (RM 16)
