Show me your Dish

Many of our favourite lunch venues are still closed or have folded due to Covid and the best food courts are IMO, at Central Airport Plaza.  The Tops food court is generally very good but the most popular is the big Kad Luang one under the Northern Village.

My tip is to get there early while ready-cooked foods are just being filled into bain-maries and remain warm.  Otherwise, we usually go to a cook-to-order vendor.   A new one is adjacent the Yamazaki Bakery at the entrance and has a large menu display of many variations of Pad Thai and Hoy Tod dishes, among others.

Hoy Tod, an omelette-type dish served over bean shoots, may come with small mussels (hoy) as standard, but here you can specify mussels, oysters, prawns, or mixed seafood.  [Note: 'hoy' may also refer to oysters so you must specify your choice.]

My Hoy Tod came with ~10 fresh plump oysters and the omelette, a blend of egg and flour thickening, was still moist in the middle, not overcooked - 100 baht.

Pad Thai can also be customised, this with goong/prawns - 60 baht.

I had not eaten tofu until my long stay in Bali when 'tempeh' was frequently served up in various forms.

Last week we tasted a deep fried Shan-style tofu at a local market and it was delicious - quite moist and went well with my wife's home-made tamarind sauce.  Picture below shows it served with nam prik >

This one is quite soft and fluffy when cooked, not creamy or hard like tempeh.   Do you get the smelly tofu or is that more a Chinese thing?

Here, they don’t smell. So many different kinds of tofu here. I also like the white tofu . It’s like pudding and melts in the mouth..

I always have this in almost all my meals. Spicy dried anchovies . It’s goes well with cold cucumber and cabbage. Trust me it will leave a delicious burning sensation in your mouth.

I'm used to the burning sensation though I really didn't enjoy this sambal(?) in Indonesia or Malaysia. 

Individual recipes vary dramatically according to ingredients and quantity so I'd like to try your version.  By the way, 'sop buntut', oxtail soup/stew, was one dish I enjoyed frequently.

My husband loves that dish too. I used natural ingredients . It’s simple and easy Hopefully it will be in the market soon😄. It’s quite popular and got some preorder to make this here.

Back to the kitchen 😄. I made roasted chicken wings with cajun seasoning and jalapeno. Finger licking good 😊

I love quality salmon, cooked and presented as well as you do SG.  Cauliflower is another favourite we can't get here, oh it is sold, but has no flavour.  Needs to be grown in volcanic soils to obtain a unique flavour and I love it in stir-fries, baked cheese sauce or crumbed and deep-fried.

Might have to pay you a visit 😃

Hor Mok - steamed seafood souffle made with curry paste

My wife cooks this occasionally, lot of work in it, but ideal for special dinners.  Looks best in banana leaf (natures non-stick baking paper) but much easier and quicker in a ramekan.

Nan featured Hor Mok in her superb video here > https://thethaiger.com/talk/topic/14656-top-10-yummy-central-thai-dishes-video/

 

And the recipe may be found here >

Can anyone tell me the English name of this vegetable?

In Thai it sounds like 'Kanneang' but Google translate returns 'Firework'?

Like many vegetables and fruits, it's only available for one or two weeks a year, like now.

Possibly it's from Myanmar and Kanneang is not the Thai name.

Thanks

Nope, still have no idea.

Maybe it has no English name?

I put it here in case @spicy_girlknew.

Just asked my wife, she said it is from the south. She found it on Lazada but I cannot find an English name for it. The Thai name is in the search box.

Are those them?
