Street Food - Thai Mixed Rice (Pattaya, Thailand)


Rice! On my god! How can my knees don't wobble? I am the biggest fan of rice. I must have rice daily. As it is, we had already packed Mango Sticky Rice, just as we walked a little bit further within this Pattaya street, I had to like quickly pull my bestie towards this stall. Thai mix rice. Mouthwatering. One which is not very much different compared to our local mix rice stalls. Let is be the Malay, Chinese or Indian stalls, each of course showcases their own traditional dishes. This Thai stall, obviously, do I have to say? Big bold Thai quintessential flavours in the displayed dishes. Stir fried veggies, meat, seafood and chicken dishes, coupled alongside various types of Thai spicy dips. Choices were not aplenty but quite a good number of dishes. To order, you just need point to the dishes, either for packing or eating at the benches along the pavement.


Rather confusing it was for us on which to opt for, eventually, we narrowed down to two pieces of grilled cat fish, two types of stir fried veggies and  for me, of course 4 small bundles of the spicy dips.  


Upon returning to Amata Country Club, we pinched and dipped the grilled cat into one of the fiery dip, prior to eating. Pass. Not bad. We didn't mind, though wasn't mind blowing. Similarly, the simply stir fried veggies should be given a pass too, my all time favourite had to be the dips. Power. Literally ripping my tongue apart. My bestie couldn't take. She was almost tearing. I too was almost in tears, but I just so love spiciness. Definitely such a meal is a whole lot cheaper compared to eating at restaurants but remember, cleanliness is questionable. The whole spread wasn't covered and imagine with the number of cars passing by, "another one bites the dust". We Malaysians however are immune to eating at road side stalls. Still, from the time to time, running to the toilet is unavoidable.
