Nothing beats an icy Blended Coconut Juice on a hot day. I cooled myself with one before settling down with my lunch orders.
The fiery Tom Yum Kung is one of the best I’ve eaten in BKK. These river prawns are served in a flaming hot pot, with gave an additional touch to the already spicy lemongrass soup. Price @ 250THB is slightly higher than others but you get really big prawns.
Crispy Morning Glory & Prawns @ 160THB. Wanted to try as it looks interesting. Never had deep-fried “Kang Kong” before. Well, it turned out to be just so-so. Just like ordinary Tempura.
The Fish Cakes @ 140THB is tastier than the ones I tried the day before at Erawan Tea Room.
I like the Stir-fried Pork with Garlic @ 180THB. The tender meat was as close as those I cook at home, so it reminded me of home, sweet, home.
This is my No. 1 fave – the Crispy Fried Chicken @ 160THB. These fragrant chicken pieces are fried with Thai herbs, sending an aromatic scent across the table.
One common dish I noticed in Thailand is that they like to fry the Kale with Roasted Pork. The 160THB vegetable here is just moderate as I’ve tried better ones.
Chris & I rested a while after our full stomach. Then, we proceeded to Conrad’s beauty parlour to indulge in a hair wash, mani & pedicure. Surprisingly, the charges were very reasonable. The shampoo blow-dry was @ 500THB & the hand/foot care was @ 1000THB. We’d 3 ladies each taking care of us. For a total of just S$65 per person, it’s a steal considering it was done at a 5-star hotel.
Soon after, it was time for our departure to S’pore.
Bangkok, with or without the recent series of clashes & bomb attacks, still hasn’t lost its charm.
