As advised by one of the staff of Pathumwan Hotel, I walked to the adjourning MDK shopping mall in search of food. I had about half an hour to fill up my stomach before the tour agent arrives, for my sightseeing which I have already arranged. Santa's was right in front of me and after a quick glance at their menu, I decided to have my lunch here.
From their set menu, I picked the chicken chop which came with a soft drink. I paid RM6.90++ at the self service counter and carried my food and drink to one of the empty tables.
The serving of chicken chop with rice, fried egg and a simple raw salad was alright but I needed some sauce, a spicy dose as usual.
I noticed that there was a side self service counter with bottles of chili and tomato ketchup and among these, was a big bowl of Thai style chili dipping sauce. There I was, scooping the Thai dipping sauce and back to my table, drizzle the spicy sauce all over my spread.
Whether the chicken was great or not I am not sure but the sauce was yummy, made from fish sauce, with additions of bird eye chilies and pieces of garlic. I needed the Coke to wash off the burning sensation I felt in my throat, slowly going down to my tummy.
I wish the fast food outlets in my country offers a similar spicy dipping sauce rather than the standard chili and tomato sauces. I was impressed that for the amount I paid, I had a complete meal which came in a big portion too. I finished of my lunch and in a jiffy headed back to the hotel feeling excited over my sightseeing tour. I will be sharing the places I went to in my next post, so do check it out.
