It was an accident that we got to try out this rice-cake place. I thought our destination was around the neighbourhood. It turned out that it was no where near here. Oops! But anyhow, it was a nice accident after all, since this experience was not bad at all. This place is apparently quite famous.
But since I don't eat pork, what was it that I ate?
This plate of oysters was pretty straight forward. I enjoyed it very much.
It seemed like a small plate, but all the oysters are there. Some places like to put things underneath to create the illusion that there are more than there is. I much prefer it this way.
These bamboo shoots were also quite tasty. Since I didn't order any rice, it was easy to taste the original taste. It wasn't too salty.
This is what the place is famous for!
We just got back from Northern Thailand not long before this. The main staple of Northern Thailand is sticky rice. After so many days of sticky rice meals, someone got sick and tired of it. But then after we got back, we still couldn't get rid of sticky rice meals!
I can't remember why I didn't have an appetite that day. But the oysters and the bamboo shoots were enough to fill me up. Of course, this soup was also quite good. The squid balls in it had a good texture.
Overall, the dishes were great. I'm not sure if I could give an accurate discription of the rice-cake, seeing the taster was not a picky eater to start with. But if he says something is bad, then rest assured that it must be really bad. All I can say, is that if you happen to be in the neighbourhood during lunch hour, it would be worth a try.
The only thing I have to complain about is the advertisement for itself all over the shop. Is that really necessary? People who come here already know what it's famous for! The TV kept on playing variety shows that were shot at the shop. I'm guessing it would make regular customers a bit sick and tired.
Finally, seeing that we haven't spent very much on this meal, we decided to order another dish. This was a very good dish of boiled squid. The squid was very fresh, indeed.
