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.

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

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

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...
