Thai Cucumber Salad (Isaan Style)

Thai Cucumber Salad 1

In my childhood, during summer vacation in Thailand, I used to work so many random jobs to earn extra cash that I could splurge on Sailor Moon stickers. We weren’t poor, but my parents always encouraged me to work so I could learn something from the experiences. I used to work at a gas station.

Tom Kha Pla (Thai Coconut Fish Soup)

Tom Kha Fish 2

In Thailand, Tom Kha and Tom Yum Dishes are served with meal and rice. They’re not served as soup like how you get them in the restaurants around here. The spicy fragrant broth is perfect for keeping the meal exciting. This is the fish version of the delicious famous Tom Kha Gai. I use the

Vietnamese Noodle Soup

Vietnamese Noodle Soup 1

I love noodle soup. Any kind of noodle soup. It’s the combination of soft and rubbery noodle in flavorful hot broth that feels very soothing. I cook noodle really often at home. Maybe more than five times a week. We handle all types of noodle in my kitchen; whether it’s Thai rice noodle, Japanese Soba

First of all, sorry for the quality of a picture in this post, I still can’t seem to find a way to take a decent picture with my DSLR at night when I make something worth sharing at that kind of hours. So I took a picture of this delicious salad with my cell phone. This

Noodle in Five Spice Chicken Broth

Noodle with Five Spice Chicke broth 1

When I’m thinking of Pho or noodle with broth, I don’t usually consider chicken in the flavorsome stock. It’s just how the texture of chicken which can be overcooked and dry easily even when it’s submerged in liquid. Red meat is the way to go when we make noodle with broth at home. Of course,

Satay Fish Cakes with Thai Papaya and Carrot Salad

Fish Cake and Papaya Salad 2

I miss street food in Thailand so much I can’t even begin to explain it. After school, strolling around the streets and eat on the side of the road was nothing less than a lifestyle. I loved meatballs on skewers which were drenched in sticky sweet and spicy sauce, delightful mini crepes filled with coconuts

Yum Pla Tu

Yum Pla Tu 9

Yum means “mixed” in Thai. It’s a kind of salad that loaded with chilies, fresh herbs, and punchy flavors of lime, sugar and fish sauce. It’s balance, but bold, and out of this world delicious. Salad in Thailand is not a regular goodie healthy salads you are used too. Most of them are protein-base while

Raw Mango Salad

Mango Salad 1

Mangoes are still in season, and I intend to savor them as much while I can. I don’t just love mangoes when they are perfectly ripe, sweet and golden, but I also love them when they’re raw and crunchy. They’re perfect for salad. I chop and slice and throw them in the bowl. They are

Fish Salad with Sweet Soy Sauce Dressing 1

Summer is the time when I miss Thailand the most. It’s been so long I have gone home, and I hope sometimes in August we could go spend sometimes travelling all over Thailand again. Summer back home is fun and vibrant. Every corner of the country seem to have those little colorful stalls selling shave

15 Minutes Chicken and Macaroni Soup

Macaroni Soup 1

When I cooked this dish a few weeks ago, I literally had no time. I meant it when I said I had no time. Yaseen was home early, and I had to finish a lot of writings. He was hungry so I decided to whip something up easy in one pot. No mess, no fuss,
