“Eat whatever you want, and if anyone tries to lecture you about your weight,
eat them too”
Sometimes the most lovely dishes are closer to home.
Somtam (kerabu betik) is one of my favourite Thai dishes. I first had it when a fellow friend whose mother hails from Bangkok prepared us a homemade Somtam. Later, my second Somtam meal was in Krabi. However, this time I bought this Somtam at Tesco Melaka’s Bazaar Rakyat for MYR5. And the taste was everything I imagined it to be. Take note, it is very spicy but the bliss of having it for Iftar was worth it. Although I did have to swallow 2 tabs of Gelusil post meal.
Its a simple dish. The ingredients were fresh and the young boy mixing the somtam certainly knows what he is doing.
Too bad the Pulut Mangga was not available during Ramadhan. Perhaps, after Raya then? Heard it was equally mouth-watering.
