ตำแหลก - 'Tam Lek'

One of the joys of being married to a wonderful Thai woman and having a daughter is that we try any restaurant anywhere. This was a restaurant recommended to Chuen by one of her colleagues at work.

This was a beautiful find but I do not know how you would stop here if you did not know about this before you came - I certainly would not have tried it - but then I remember finding the best Som Tam restaurant in Phuket Nong Sow the same way.

The Yum Pla Dook Foo was wonderful (Deep Fried Catfish Salad) - and it was so crisp and still hot I could imagine that the cook had just taken off the cook! 

Then the Green Mango Salad was also fresh - super - but i have to admit to being a bit of a wimp with the black crab.

Then came the chicken - my daughter and i loved this and happily ate it between ourselves - of course with the necessary sticky rice!

I know that there were other dishes that Chuen ate but I do not recall what they were - but they were also eaten swiftly! We sat in our own little Traditional platform for lunch and we knocked on the bamboo stick to attract their attention - which was very good - and the cost was small.

Worth a visit!

Note: I imagine that we arrived early for lunch and we were there only customers when we arrived but there was a constant stream of Thai people whilst we ate - always a good sign that it is Thai food prepared the way that it should be!
