Worth Coming By Thai Baiyok, Lorong Selamat, Penang

BESIDES THE HAWKERS' SPREE IN PENANG, we took a nice Thai dinner at the Lorong Selamat, a shop called Thai Baiyok.  My friend recommended this place for us to go... since my girl and I love Thai food, we readily went for it.  At first we could not locate the place along Lorong Selamat, we overshot it, the shop is on the left side, just a short distance away right after the turning.

Thai Baiyok... wonder what it means... 
As usual, we had our dinner early to beat the crowd....
The first customers to patronize so that we could get our food in no time....
This is an appetizer dish...
I would highly recommend this... 
Sweet and spicy at the same time...
Just put some fillings onto the leave.... and into the mouth it goes.....
And I bet one will not regret once it is there...
hahahahaa...
Here is the closer version.... 
Surprisingly we saw Otak-Otak in the menu...
And it came out like this...
Wrapped like a bird.... 
Kind of special, right?
Oh, are we eating Thai or Nyonya now.... 
Just look at that.... filled to the brim....
Aromatic and fragrance fillings such as prawns and squids and of course, fish too....
I was thinking of the boys when this came out...
They would love to have the special Thai otak otak!
As for the greens, we have bitter gourd stir-fry with salted eggs...
I know many do not like bitter gourd but I am glad my girl does not mind at all...
Another to go for is the Tomyam Fish...
One must not leave Tomyam out when it comes to Thai food, right?
Pineapple rice to try.....
And we preferred the taste of Belacan rice with these condiments at the side....
For this meal the bill came to around RM100 for the three of us...
Looking back at the pictures, we are considered "Big Eaters" eh....
We managed to clear all the dishes without any difficulty!
Shall we come by here again?
Our smiles has given away the answer... I guess... 
hahahahaa...

  6. Not much into Thai food but I would never say "no" to trying new food and new place. :)

    Thais are well-known for their spices and herbs so I am sure its tom yam and appetizer were good.

    Lol. A chicken-wrapped otak-otak??

  7. The otak-otak portion looks so so big, I can imagine myself scooping with a spoon, no need rice or whatever, just give me a spoon, I can eat all..The tomyam fish very "hoiwai", but sure sweat after drinking the soup..

  8. Here a lot of Thai eateries also offer otak-otak. I think Thai also have their own otak-otak. Different compared to the Nyonya versions one...

  9. Thai food anytime for me! I have never had that daun kaduk appetizer before. It should be quite nice. The otak-otak looks like quite a big portion.

The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t
