Another Thai Treat

The quality of food has always been great in this small Thai restaurant that several of my friends and I have been frequenting this place for the last couple of years. Today, however, we opt for just a few dishes and the sticky rice with mango turned out to be our main dish rather than dessert…

Wordless Wednesday

Piggin’ Out

I’m sure many of you reading this have tasted Thai food already. You may have visited Thailand before or you may have tried eating from Thai restaurants in your place.

I’m not hard to please when it comes to food and Thai dishes are a delight anytime. So last Thursday, my preggy friend and I pigged out at Sabaidee Thai Cuisine.

Dinner

My friend and I had an unplanned dinner yesterday and we ended up dining at Korea Grill in New Park Hotel.

The side dishes (banchan) weren’t very good except for the kimchi. The Rabokki (라볢이) was good while the Jjamppong (짬뽕) tasted quite differently from what we were used to, but it was still okay.

Rabokki = Instant Ramen noodles + tteokbokki (spicy Korean rice cakes)

Jjamppong = spicy noodle soup (with lots of seafood)

We also ordered hotteok (not included in the photo) which I think is the winner for the night. Hotteok is basically sweet pancake and is one of the most popular foods in Korea.

Korean and Vietnamese are my top favorite cuisines and I am not sure which one to put first among these two, unfortunately, there are no Vietnamese restaurants around here (as far as I know).

By the way, the service was very good.

How ’bout you? What’s your favorite cuisine? Let me know in the comments. πŸ™‚

Bun Cha

I love Vietnamese food. Last month, I had the chance to go back to Vietnam and as an avid eater, I tried to eat as much as I could. There’s nothing I didn’t like. Everything was wow just like the first time I’ve been here and tasted their food.

For this post, let’s have bun cha…

Bun cha is said to have originated in Hanoi. It’s basically rice noodles, grilled pork in cold broth and herbs. So in a small bowl, you just have to mixed them all together then add some garlic, chili and lime.Β Most places include fried spring rolls when they serve bun cha and it perfectly complements the meal.

I noticed that bun cha is mostly served for lunch but I can eat it any time of the day. πŸ™‚

The best place, for me, is the one in Hang Manh.

Yes, there are tables on the sidewalk, and that’s normal. πŸ™‚

Red Cave Restaurant

I decided to have dinner here in Red Cave Restaurant just a couple of hours ago after reading good reviews about the place. I love the ambiance the moment I came in.

I have been drinking lemon with mint since I got here and their version is definitely the best!

I ordered mouhamara for starters…

And Bedouin Ghaliyah for my main dish…

The service was good, too. The staffs were friendly and willing to assist you. So all in all, it was a great dining experience for me!


I’d definitely recommend Red Cave Restaurant to everyone visiting Petra. The food is tasty at reasonable prices with hospitality at its best!

About Yesterday

My colleague and I were starving since around lunch yesterday and so each of us had a sandwich but still ended up eating in a Thai Restaurant after work.

The place is just a 5-minute walk from the office and is just a small space with four tables that can sit four people. Luckily yesterday, the restaurant wasn’t busy.

It wasn’t our first time to dine here so it was easy for us to choose what to order.

We ordered tom yam soup with shrimps, chicken satay with peanut sauce (of course!) and stir-fried shrimps with basil and chili…

We also had seafood fried rice and shrimp pad thai…

We had a very satisfying meal. Generous servings and very reasonable prices. I can happily recommend it. πŸ™‚

The place is A Roy D Thai Restaurant located in Al Muthanna Complex in Kuwait City.

Happy Thursday, homo sapiens!

Galbitang

Korean food has become really popular for the last few years and I can really understand why. I work for a Korean company and yes, we get to taste their food every now and then. But my friend and I usually go together in a Korean restaurant near our office and yesterday was one of those days.

Yesterday’s meal was galbitang (κ°ˆλΉ„νƒ•). It’s become one of our favorites this year (I think?) and it’s really good. It’s a beef ribs soup which I think has very little ingredients served in a stone pot/bowl but it really is very tasty. Even tastier when it’s spicy.

And of course, I have to mention the free side dishes. Kimchi, kimchi pancake, fish cake, cauliflower, spinach and pickled cucumber were served last night.

Happy tummy! πŸ™‚

So true! 

Saw this in front of Prime & Toast in Al Bida’a. Small but nice place.
