Restaurant Review: Som Tam, Bangkok

5 Oct

The hotel we are staying is located near Siam, so we decided to have lunch at Som Tam at Siam Square Soi 5 before checking-in our hotel on our first day in Bangkok. Once you arrive at the restaurant, tell the staff the number of people dining at the restaurant, and he will give you a menu.

Som Tam, Bangkok

After deciding what you would like to eat, ask the staff to take your order, have a seat and wait for your turn. I personally think that staff has super good memory, as he remembers what each group of people have ordered and provide a table accordingly.

Refreshing and cooling drink! Perfect for the hot weather!

Papaya Salad@Som Tam

Papaya Salad with Fermented Crab

This place is famous for its papaya salad, of course we had to order one. Oh my god, it’s super spicy, so if you can’t eat spicy food, you might not be able to finish this dish! This dish is so spicy that even my parents felt the heat, but the ingredients were very fresh and all the flavour and texture combined together was awesome!

Fried Fish@Som Tam

Fried Fish

This is probably one of my favourite dishes in Bangkok! Well, I have to say the fish isn’t the freshest, but definitely the tastiest! A bit spicy but not too much, sour, sweet and salty… all-in-one! Should have ordered some sticky rice to go with it! Totally worth the price!

Fried Thai Sausage

This is the first time I see these fried thai sausage, interesting shape, a pretty nice appetizer and snack.

P.S. Sorry that I didn’t write down the exact name of each dish and the price!

Environment: 8/10 (Convenient location, but can be a bit crowded)

Service: 7/10 (Not the best service, as some staff tried to avoid us when we were asking for help)

Food:  8/10 (Pretty good for the price, especially the fried fish)

Overall: Good quality food for the price! I would consider re-visiting again next time!

Address: 392/14 Soi Siam Square 5, Rama 1 Road, Bangkok, Thailand.

Bangkok Shopping Haul

26 Sep

Sorry for abandoning my blog for more than 1 year. To “celebrate” the re-activating my blog, I would like to share with you all my recent 3 days 2 nights trip to Bangkok.

It’s my first time to Thailand; I had a great time, but didn’t buy a lot, as I was with my parents and was busy sightseeing. The following is most of the things I bought:

Thailand Food Haul

Just randomly bought some Thailand instant noodles, biscuit and snacks. My mom also bought some Thai seasonings, so that she can try making real Thai food at home.

Soap & Glory Haul

As we can’t get Soap & Glory in Hong Kong, I went a bit crazy, especially because they were doing a Buy-1-Get-1-Free offer at Boots.

– The Scrub of your Life (395 THB)
– Hand Food (295 THB)
– Heel Genius (295 THB)
– Scrub ’em and Leave ’em (395 THB)
Flake Away (395 THB)
– Righteous Butter (395 THB)
* Original price stated above.

Elephants...

After this trip, I found that I’m a bit obsessed with elephants, and couldn’t resist looking at things with elephant prints. In the end, I got 6 elephant postcards at Chatuchak Weekend Market (5 THB for 6 postcards) and a NaRaYa key holder (100 THB).
