🍀 (ไทย/Eng) This post is rewritten on Sunday 3rd May 2020 - two months into the pandemic lockdown when I am cooking like crazy like most people I know :D I am now cooking Aiyu Jelly - a rare ingredient that made the sweet and mysterious shaved ice dessert of Phuket.
For almost a year since its debut of creative and delicious Thai-inspired Nordic Cuisine, Front Room at Waldorf Astoria Bangkok has just released its new seasonal menu. The seven-and-ten-course degustation takes us deep into the woodland with earthy and somewhat wild things that appear on the plates. A must-try, a very creative and delicious cuisine in Bangkok.
This sweet, cold noodle is a secret recipe of a family of Talad Noi - a residential cluster south of Yaowarat. And it happens to be vegan, hence a specialty exclusively available during the Chinese Vegan Festival. But now, the descendants are bringing back this comforting and cooling bowl to the visitors of the area. Yumm.
What's better than stumbling onto something as great as a real artisanal goodie. Case in point is this delicious deep-fried dough locally known as 'Pa-Tong-Go.' While many places depend on the quick recipe using baking powder, this one still relies fresh yeast made and taken care of overnight. The kneading and deep-frying techniques - passed along from father to son - also add to the extra crunchiness. Yummmmm!!!
UNESCO City of Gastronomy, Phuket Town is a real foodie town. Among their amazing arrays of local delicacies is a variety of tea snacks, many of which are an integral part of their daily life. The delicate and cute and delicious Pang Pia is among the oldest recipes.
The Oasis is the all-day dining at the newly opened Hotel Nikko Bangkok on Thong Lor. They are now serving a lunch buffet - Japanese-centric and more - at just Bt700++ per person. New, bright, shiny and delicious.
