Foodspotting Singapore hosting legend Zupft at this historical hawker center. Great times! 1st food to the table.. these succulent grilles chicken wings. Sticky hands followed.. foodspotters want clean hands for the shutter button-- luckily a uncle selling wetnaps kept coming by. Makan on!
Pla Jalamed. This is the best combination of flavors prepared I've had in a very long time. Delicately steamed or broiled white fish with a myriad of flavors from ginger, garlic, wood ear mushrooms, umeboshi pickled plums, onions in a savory gravy. I wish I had brought a bigger appetite, as this 'out of this world' greatness would have been appreciated more. at $40, I was surprised when the bill was brought, easily the most expensive dish (or meal) I've eaten in a year ..but would consider ordering it again. A new restaurant that delivered high standards on all the dishes ordered. A new favorite on Phuket!
Like many Thai dishes, you either love or it you will pass. This is one of my top 5 for sure, and the perfect execution here easily ranks as one of the best I've ever had. Light fluffy fried catfish.. (yes..fluffy. If you take a fork or spoon to it, it just crumbles! ) with a sour/spicy/sweet mango salad makes for a combination of textures, and flavors unknown to those who've never had the pleasure of sampling this. A Thai specialty this is not always available, was overly excited to see and taste this plate.
Sour green mango (sour), white onions, sweet local pineapple chunks (sweet) combined with sliced red peppers (spicy) and dried crunchy shrimp (salty) make this salad a definate score. A sourthern Thai speciality done up right.
In the heart of the golden triangle, one can now have a top American brewery beer such as this. Amazing how the world becomes smaller every day. I've never had a bad Rogue, they are all exceptional for a reason. Thanks to the brewers and hop growers of Oregon.
Breakfast is served at another legendary spot for this Northern Thai specialty. A first try for me, it is a slight variation from the normal bowl. A rich curry flavored thin coconut gravy soaked up by chewy wheat noodles, topped with crispy fried ones. Tender chicken bits instead of the usual drumstick, and a side of pungent pickled cabbage. A savory bowl that grew on me bite after bite. This is definitely a unique version of the chefs own magic. Some say this might be most like the original Muslim version that was brought here generations ago. It is of debate to all the influence brought into this one dish. Now for a 2nd serving!
