Tun Tim Krob - translated as 'crispy rubies - is a type of Thai shaved ice dessert. Late last year, this icy bowl made it to CNN Travel's 50 Best Desserts around the world list. And that shifted things in terms of our attention to this refreshing and beautiful Thai food.
We spent a wonderful weekend in Had Yai - Songkhla's major trading district that has been the centre of the Thai deep south. The place is unique and packed with great delicious local cuisines.
The apartment room at the Centara Hotel Had Yai was our base during our trip down there. Perched on top of the building (23F) and fully equipped with kitchenette and living room, this is what we call a home away (way south) from home. :D
Pa Yang is a long-standing family-style Thai southern restaurant that Had Yai locals bring their friends and family in for a hearty tasty meal. This restaurant might not be big on the Internet, but in real life, they are a real deal.
