A Hot Fiery Session At Sawadee Thai, Ipoh

YEARNING FOR SOME THAI FOOD...

During my "absence".. my friends told me that they went to this Sawadee Thai Restaurant at Medan Ipoh to try some of their special dishes.  When I heard Thai food, first thing that came to my mind was the Tom Yum.  I had my share of that too when I was at London Old Street, but of course, the prices and the taste, please do not compare.  So I silently said to myself that once I am back in IPOH, I must "attack" the Thai food to my full satisfaction!

One fine evening, my friends came to fetch me and off we went to Sawadee Thai which I had not been before.  Looking forward to savoring the hot and sourish Tomyum.... but little did I know that it was so Fiery Hot that I could not even finish my own share of the soup!  How could it be?   Yes, I am not a Hot Stuff but so far, I normally takes at least two bowls of Tomyum without any rejection... But I admit Defeat on this particular soup.... *white flag*..... hmmmmm..
I call this ... Super Fiery Tomyum!
I wonder what they put in to make it so fiery HOT... 
It was still "burning" in my tummy when the dinner was over...
I better give this a skip the next time... 
Even one of my friends were feeling the same like I did... 
*Something to do with our age!*
Another sourish dish... I shouldn't have ordered both sourish dishes...
Wrong choice I made....
But on top of that, the mango kerabu would be great if there were more dishes... 
Since there were only three of us, we ordered these three dishes only... 
Thai Fish Pancakes....
This is the only dish which I could eat without fear of the cilipadi... 
And the total bill came to around RM70 for the three dishes...
So much for my cravings for Thai food... 
Next time I will stick to the steamed fish Thai style.. 
Safer for my tongue and all....
LOL....

  6. I also cannot take very hot and spicy food so I understand the burning sensation in the mouth and stomach, ouch!

  7. That spicy, huh? I heard that in Thailand it is like that. Super power hot. I don't think I can tahan also.

  8. So next time, must remember to request for lesser hotness for the tom yam. If it is too sour, then I better skip the mango kerabu. Go for milder dishes or else our tummy and tongue will suffer.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... 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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
