It has been almost 15 years since I first visited Australia, but my memory of Thai Town in Sydney is still fresh as if it happened yesterday. I remember walking with my dad along Campbell Street in the Sydney CBD and being amazed by the number of Thai people, Thai restaurants, grocery shops and multiple Thai businesses in this area. It was eye-opening for someone who had never been to Australia before.
Among my frequently requested recipes is ‘Yum woon sen”. I have shared the recipe in my blog before but this time I want to also share the recipe video - Charinya Ruecha of @charinyas_kitchen
Roti Sai Mai (โรตีสายไหม), which means sweet angel hair, is a colourful and flavourful dessert in which cotton candy is wrapped in soft, paper-thin, Pandan-flavoured crepes. There are a number of small kiosks which sell this dessert along the main highway in Ayutthaya province and it has become the provinces signature dessert snack. Some people may even say that no visit to Ayutthaya is complete without eating some Roti Sai Mai.
Mee Krob is a Thai dish influenced by Chinese cuisine. The name means "crispy noodles". It is made with rice noodles and topped with a sweet and sour sauce characterised by an acidic flavour such as tamarind sauce or lime juice - Charinya Ruecha of @charinyas_kitchen
When I think about Pork Crackers, it never fails to make mouth water and it is a must buy whenever I visit the northern part of Thailand, especially to Chiang Mai province. Travelling between Bangkok and Chiang Mai by overnight train takes around 11-14 hours and the best snack to have on the way back is a massive bag of pork crackers with your favourite dipping sauce such as Nam Phrik Num or Nam Phrik Pao.
Kab (Thai:แคบ) is animal fat that has been rendered by frying until it’s crispy and crunchy. It is one of traditional way to preserve meat and add value to animal skins; cow, buffalo or pig. Pork skin is considered as a popular option to make Kab as it’s cheaper than others.
