Pig Out at Bangkok!

I stayed at Inn Saladeang and great food is just a stone throw away at Baan Restaurant!

Before we serve the dishes, here’s the simple introduction to Thai food. The unique characteristic of Thai cuisine is the use of large quantities of spices, fresh fruits and vegetables found and grown in Thailand in the cooking.  A typical Thai food fare consists of salads, finger food, curries, soup, fish/seafood accompanied with rice and a sweet ending with desserts. We realised that Thai cuisine seldom uses cumin as a spice in the cooking.

Let’s start with the appetizer:

Sotong Salad for the blur and tangy

2 different way to cook the same fish:

Version 1: Deep Fried and Laced with Sweet & Sour Sauce

    • It’s at Saladeang area in Bangkok just behind the lane after Bally Suites. I forgot the name of the restaurant. Sorry about that. 🙁
