SOOK Siam: Indoor Floating Market

Aside from temples, food, night markets, Bangkok is also known for its famous floating markets. And if you haven't seen one yet, you can go to this link---> Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. It is a nice experience to go on an actual floating market tour but if you are pressed for time or not in the mood to go to the outskirts of Bangkok, then I suggest SOOK Siam.

SOOK Siam is easily accessible via BTS Skytrain, or simply hop on to a taxi or tuktuk (depends on where you're coming from though). Or via Grab car, our preferred mode of transportation in Bangkok. 

If you're wondering where SOOK Siam is, it is at the posh ICONSIAM Mall in Bangkok. 

Luckily, the hotel where we stayed at is walking distance to the pier and there's a free boat that goes to ICONSIAM. 

SOOK Siam highlights the rich and diverse culture of Thailand's different regions through its food offerings such savory dishes and regional delicacies. 

Aside from the numerous restaurants around SOOK Siam, there are also many vendors around the "floating market." You can order anywhere then look for available tables or benches around the market area. 

Or you can opt to dine at the tables on the second floor. 

There are also stores selling herbal medicines, balms, ointments, soaps, etc. 

It is such a nice experience to visit SOOK Siam and dine here. Are you curious about what we ate? Stay tuned! 

This is the pier of ICONSIAM. Just before the main entrance of the mall are the "dancing" fountains. That time we went there, the fountains were playing Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. Very nice.

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity! 

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!
