泰鑽是天仙爸媽的友人推薦的一間泰國餐廳。這位長輩友人其實也去過不少次泰國。天仙爸媽這次推薦來這兒用餐,想說既然這位友人這麼親賴這間,想必一定有值得被推薦之處吧!

This Thai place was recommended by a friend of my parents. This friend of theirs had been to Thailand several times, so we thought highly his recommendation.

看看菜單,以台中的價位,部算是平價。但又比瓦X划算許多。這間看到許多其它間沒看到的菜色。不過台灣人愛吃的菜色不外乎就那幾樣,想嘗鮮的人我想應該不多。

Looking at the menu, the price seemed a bit steep for Taichung, but it was still cheaper than the more posh places. There were several dishes that couldn't be found at other places. But Taiwanese people enjoy only a few certain types of dishes, so I doubt many are in for an adventure.

店內布置以及水杯及飯桶一樣都是很泰式。碗盤跟筷子擺在桌上就知道這大部分的客人是台灣人來著。

The interior, along with the cups and rice holder are very Thai style. You can tell from the bowl, plate, and chopsticks, that the majority of the customers are Taiwanese indeed. (Thai people usually eat with fork and spoon).

第一道上來的是那101道打拋豬肉。因為有洋蔥,所以給我們扣了一點分數。而且這裡的打拋有點偏濕。我們習慣吃略乾的。

The first dish up was the khrapao (pork). We didn't think very highly of it, as it had onion in it. Also, there was a bit too much sauce.

這道是雲南名菜:大薄片。以前還沒養成習慣吃豬肉的時候,常常為了這道破例!切的薄薄的豬肉片,配上酸辣的醬汁,還有帶蔬菜。非常美味可口。也是一道非常安全的菜。

This dish is a famous Yunnan dish. It's basically a sour and spicy salad of very thinly sliced pork. Before I got into the habbit of eating pork, I often made exceptions just to get a taste of this! There is also a considerable amount of veggies in it. Since it's not difficult to make, I'd say it's quite a 'safe' dish to order, anywhere you go.

不過天仙最愛的就是這一道:酸肉煎蛋![之前介紹泰北名菜有介紹過酸生肉點我看舊文

天仙從未想過離開泰國後還能吃到酸肉!上次貼出有介紹酸生肉,大部分格友留言表示不敢嘗試,因為是生的。其實大可以先來這裡嚐嚐烹調過的酸肉。一般而言,天仙吃煎蛋總是喜歡挑蛋吃。不過這次例外了!調皮的天仙,竟然專挑酸肉吃。吃完了還想跟店家買酸肉回家啃呢!

老實說,其實酸生肉是可以自己做的。不過難度在於濕度跟溫度都要控制好。在台灣這種溼氣重的情況下,天仙實在不太敢輕易嘗試。

Now, the dish that really made the day was this fried egg with naam. Naam is a kind of sausage made from fermented raw pork. 

I had never imagined that once I left Thailand, I could still taste naam! The last time I introduced this, the comments revealed that many were not willing to try this. I would suggest that if you are holding back because it's raw meat, then you could try this dish to get a sense of what it taste like. Whenever I order fried egg dishes, I'd eat the egg part first. But this time, I was very naughty! I ate all the naam! And afterwards, I even wished to buy some naam from them!

Actually, you can make naam at home. But it's difficult to control the humidity and temperature to ensure the process doesn't go wrong. Now, since Taiwan has such a humid climate, I don't dare to have a go at it.

這一碗其實是咖哩蝦。因為懷孕蝦子要少吃,加上天仙平時不太愛咖哩,因此沒吃幾口。不過這道倒是挺下飯的喔!

This probably doesn't look as tasty as it really is. It's curry shrimp. I didn't have very much of it, because I'm trying to avoid taking in too much shellfish. Plus, I've never been a big fan of curry.

當然餐餐少不了的青菜,來這也是要點!

Veggie of the meal!

清蒸檸檬魚。以這樣規模的餐廳,魚的肉質算是不錯吃。一旁的湯汁也是挺下飯的。

In terms of the scale of this restaurant, I'd say the fish was pretty good. The sour and spicy soup of the steamed fish also went well with rice.

這道也是為了嘗鮮而點的。因為不是每間餐廳都有,天仙爸又特別懷念這道菜。不過一上桌,天仙爸就不太滿意。怎麼跟泰國吃到的可以差這麼多?

Shrimp potted with vermicelli. My dad wanted to try this dish. He really enjoyed this dish when we were in Thailand. But he was very disappointed when it was served.

於是我們攪拌了一下之後,才終於有點像樣。我們在泰國吃到的,冬粉都是在上面,蝦子都是鋪在鍋子底的。這味道,其實也沒有很入味。天仙爸是有點失望了。

這一餐四個人吃,點的菜有點多。所以算下來其實我們覺得稍稍貴了些。不過後來想想,有一兩道沒吃完的包回去,晚上只要再煮個白飯又是一餐了!其實也還好!

After we mixed it up again, it looked more like what my dad had expected. The ones we used to have in Thailand, had the shrimps at the bottom of the pot... Aside from the appearance, though, we didn't think it tasted anything like what we had anticipated. 

It was a bit too much food for just the four of us, so the bill turned out to be a little expensive. But then, we took what we couldn't finish home - mostly the curry and made another meal from just that. So in the end, it was still within an acceptable range.

  天仙念:雖然沒有令人很驚豔,不過天仙肯定是會為了那道酸肉煎蛋再回來的!
