A Taste of Jatujak

Since Im planning to visit Bangkok this year, Sir Lloyd and his preggy wife Grace invited me for a Thai food trip. Yey! The first time I tasted Thai Food was at Soms (the famous street treat located outside Rockwell) Hope I remembered that one right. And I conclude, Thai food is tasty yet cheap.

For our food trip, Sir lloyd suggested Jatujak. Jatujak (cha-tu-chak) is the largest weekend market in Bangkok- also a haven for bargain hunters and Thai food lovers. Interesting.

cha-tu-chak

For appetizer, Sir Lloyd picked Yam Pla Duk Foo (Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad). What?! Catfish as in Hito? Edible ba yun? He said it doesn't llok like a catfish so I agreed. But at the back of my mind I wanna say "Iba nalang kaya, Fish are friends, not food, right?" Just because Im beginning to imagine how a hito looks like. Ü


Yam Pla Duk Foo (Crispy Catfish with Mango Salad)

This dish impressed me so much. The combination of catfish, mango, and nuts is brilliant. Aylavet! ♥


After 5 mins, Pad Thai is served. Everybody knows a Pad Thai so no need to elaborate on this one.


Pad Thai

Can't compare because I cant barely remember the taste of Soms version. But this Pad Thai tastes more authentic according to the couple. Serves 2-3.


After enjoying Pad Thai, Kao Kluk Gapi (Thai's version of Bagoong Rice) and Kaeng Nua (Red Curry Beef) are served.

Kao Kluk Gapi (Bagoong Rice)

Kaeng Nua (Red Curry Beef)

Does not taste like our Pinoy Bagoong rice, theirs is not salty. And as expected, Red Curry Beef is tasty.

I like this Jatujak experience, specially the Catfish salad. Looking forward to taste these in Thailand.

Oopps, time for dessert! This time I chose Sebastian's Ice Cream studio. Been hearing good reviews about this ice cream station so this is a must try.

Sebastian's Ice Cream Studio

the flavors of Sebastian's

All of us wanted the Macadamia White. One big scoop costs P95. This is more sulit (and tasty and creamy) compared to Dolce- anliit ng serving.


Macadamia White

Imagine a white chocolate bar that is melted and turned into an icecream. I've never tasted an icecream this creamy. Also garnished with roasted macadamia nuts. Perfect!
