RUEN-MALLIKA @ BANGKOK, THAILAND

Advertisements

I reckon I should write about this awesome place I’ve been to during my last trip to Bangkok. Reason is, this place serves very authentic Thai food dated back to the days where they are being served to the Thai royalties and these dishes are believe to have medicinal effects on our bodies. No wonder most of the Thai girls we see are so slim! Well the attraction of this place is not just the food but also the whole structure. The place is made from traditional Thai teak wood and service staff are all dressed in traditional Thai costumes. So are the utensils and serving plates and bowls. My buddy in Bangkok brought me there for dinner much to my surprise as this place is tucked in some back alleys in Sukhumvit Soi 20 and it’s a really nice little paradise to have authentic Thai food, chat up with your mates, or even a date with that special someone. Check out the pics below:

Menu
First up, Chun-Cheu-Boos-Sa-Ba. An assortment of Fried Flowers which is said to aid digestion. This is nice. 🙂
Tod-Mun-Goong. Some prawn mix batter. Taste good! Aids appetitie.
Khao-Tang-Nha-Thung. Traditional rice crackers with shallot and garlic dip. Relieves cold & cough and reduces blood pressure.
This is how you eat it... addictive!
Kor-Moo-Yang. Grilled Pork and if eaten with dip, will aid digestive system, blood circulation and gas in stomach... No wonder that night I was so farty... ;P
Tom-Yum-Goong-Mae-Num. This soup needs no introduction but Tom Yum soups have some medicinal effects on us too! It has high vitamin C, decreases blood sugar and relieves coughs and indigestion.
This is the clear broth version. Just love the big river prawns and the taste!
Gang-Kheaw-Waan-Gai or Pla -Grai... Or Chicken Green Curry. Lovely dish and this dish actually helps in bone strengthening, cures rheumatism and decreases blood pressures.
Nam-Prik-Khai-Poo. Salad base dish but the main thing is the dip. Very healthy dish. Promotes appetitite and healthy skin, relieves coiughs and promotes a healthy heart.
Wonder how long they spend carving this... hmmm

Bugis Street Ngak Seah Beef Kuay Teow @ Lavendar Foodcourt

Advertisements

I’ve been eating this beef kuay teow since 1995 and the prices hasn’t change much since… Just by a dollar difference. So I was at Lavendar Foodcourt again after such a long time and decided to have my favourite mixed beef kuay teow. Surprisingly, they do not have any reviews print out on this stall… so I decided to write about them.

The stall... see the prices didn't change much...
Yummy dried kuay teow... with some beef balls soup... for S$4
A lot of ingredients... nice

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Still has the authentic beef kuay teow taste of yester years… Tribe is tender and beef is fresh. Love it!

Portion: Average.

Price: $4.00 or $5.00

RTE: Yeah…

Location: Lavendar Food Court. Easy to spot. 🙂

SANG HWANG NA RA (SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA)

Your guys must be wondering like what? Cambodia?! Yeah it’s true, this Korean restaurant has been here for many years already and this Korean lady migrated to Siem Reap after seeing so many Koreans coming to the country. Hence she erected a small building beside this garden sanctuary restaurant where the lodging for her and her workers and also the kitchen is located. 

This is my 2nd time here and I didn’t feature it in the first place cos eatwithroy! was not up then. Since I’m back to do charity work, I might as well feature what’s good in Siem Reap! 🙂 Enjoy the pics below and click to enlarge!

There it is...

Rating: 4.5/5. Organic may not be for everyone. But it’s very good for us!

Taste: Very nice home cooked dishes… gives us an insight of what Koreans eat at home.

Portion: It’s free flow… what you think? ;P

Price: Get ready for this… free flow everything including ice tea. US$5 per person.

RTE: When I’m back in Siem Reap lah! Far leh.
