Eating Pad Thai at Chatuchak Market

My first meal during our recent trip to Bangkok was at Chatuchak Market and it was a nice experience especially going around the huge market. Read more about my market tour here -- Chatuchak Market.

So after going around the market and getting lost, we decided to eat in one of the numerous food stalls that are lined up along the street just in front of Chatuchak Market. We were so hungry we just choose the nearest one with a vacant table.

Pad Thai. I love this noodle dish but I guess I am too tired and hungry to appreciate what I ordered. It is a very filling meal though.


Tom Yum Goong. A different version of Tom Yum. Its too brown according to my friend who ordered this and she said it was so spicy even if she told the server that she prefers the not spicy Tom Yum. Lost in translation. ;)


Another friend ordered this pork with rice dish. I forgot what its called. I mean, we were all so hungry that we even forgot to take photos of the menu.


Here's us, still smiling while playing hunger games literally. Hahaha.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
