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...

  5. Beautiful photo of you and your daughter! Both look so sweet. So much food for 3 persons. As both of you do not eat much, person 3 must be a super big eater!

  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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
