Tonight’s dinner was at a khao tom restaurant called Lerdthip. Khao tom literally means “boiled rice”, but can also refer to a restaurant that has Thai and Chinese-Thai style food made to order and eaten with watery rice served in bowls.

I began with kaeng paa look chin plaa kraay, “jungle” curry with fishballs made from a type of freshwater fish:

Although it looks pretty, I’ve et better. This one was a bit too bland and sight too salty.

I also ordered yam hoy naang rom, a “salad” of raw oysters:

I always order this dish, forgetting that I don’t really like this dish. Actually it’s not bad, but I don’t really care for yam that employ that sweetish, red sauce. I would much rather have the simple mixture of lime juice, chilies, fish sauce and sugar, as illustrated in painstaking detail here.

Khuat ordered pet phalo, duck stewed in Chinese-style spices:

For me this dish is like the Thai equivalent of steak; a big hunk of meat. Not bad, but boring.

She also ordered phat phak boong fai daeng, flash-fried morning glory:

God, I love this stuff. It’s everything I like in food: spicy, crunchy, garlicky, salty, and it’s veggies. I eat it so often I think it should constitute a whole other food group for me.

And finally in an moment of feeding frenzy that was later regretted, we also ordered ahaan thale luak, a variety of seafood par-boiled and served with two dipping sauces:

Not bad, but there are places that do this much better.
