Thai Chicken-Oil Rice (Khao Mun Gai) in Hatyai

By Ianpassion 


Go local today. 

Whenever I search for food to relieve my hunger, I always preferred to go to sidewalk food stalls, called "Ran Khao" in Thai, "Rice Shop" in English,
 or known as "Carenderia" in the Philippines.

Khanum Jin - Delicious White Thai Noodle

By Ianpassion

I have been in Satun for some years now, but I did not know that Lung Lee Garden (Uncle Lee Garden) in the main town of Satun served our favorite Kanum Jin (Thai white noodle).


Wherever you are in Thailand, Khanum Jin is usually eaten with fresh herbs and vegetables, such as guto kola, string beans, bitter melon, morning glory, peppers, parsley, pickled cabbage, raw sprouts, raw papaya, and banana heart.

Thai Local Rice Pounding With Amazing Skill

By Ianpassion

Traditional wooden pounder is a common agricultural tool in a rice farming communities. We also had this tool back in my parents' house in Mindanao, Philippines. 


Back then we grew our own rice, after some months waiting we harvested the grain and spread on a mat to expose directly to the heat of the sun for drying. When the grain was dried enough then this is dehulled by continues raising and dropping of a heavy wooden pestle in a mortar.

Photos: Thai Letchon Or Mo Yang, Roasted Piglets

By Ianpassion

If Americans have a roasted turkey to party every Thanksgiving day, Filipinos have a roasted pig or called letchon for their barrios fiestas and celebrations. 


I used to think that this style of pig roasting originally came from the central Philippines, but at the time I arrived in the South of Thailand, I found that Thais also have a letchon or known as Mo Yang in the Thai language.

Eating Yummy Exotic Food, Satun Night Market, Thailand

By Ianpassion 

One of the things that will amaze you when you are in Thailand is their delicious exotic foods. It was a lively night in the main town of Satun when I went there with my family. As usual, we preferred to explore the rugged street for our food. 


We did not realize there were two events in the city - the Satun Kite International Festival and the OTOP festival. There were many people. The Night Market was the main attraction in the evening providing 500 meters walking-street, amusement facilities, and various choices of food, drinks, dessert, and more.

Local Food: Khao Yum - Rice Mixed With Thai Herbs

By Ianpassion

Food in Thailand will always amaze you. There are lots of varieties for your choice depending on each province. 


One day the owner of the mini-store where I always buy my drinks and snacks asked about my breakfast. I replied that today I had a niyaw gai and cafe boran  (sticky rice with fried chicken and traditional Thai coffee).

Somtam - Thai Spicy Papaya Salad

By Ianpassion 
One among the Thai food that I like is the Spicy Papaya Salad, called as “Somtam” in Thai. 


This salad originates from the Northeast part of the Kingdom of Thailand known as “Isaan,” but these days you can find this salad almost every town in the country.
