Awesome Thai food in Penang

Prince C & JS sped fr Ipoh to get Monkey at the airport,
that's Bayan Lepas.

went thru the horrible jam on the bridge to cross over,
picked notti monkey up....and cross back to mainland
?!?!?!?!?!??!?!

Where are we goin??????

and for the 2nd time, they went thru the bad jam on the bridge
the pick-up process and crossing over and back again took 3 hours.

ALL IN THE NAME OF GOOD FOOD!!!!
yeah superlicious Thai food at Sungai Dua - Butterworth

Name of the place: Khun Thai
Khun = Mr/Ms
Thai = Thai lor......-_-
1st dish that came and tickled our taste buds was Tom Yum Goong Nam Saai
if u want the soup to be clear just add nam saai at the back when ordering.
*sorry I have yet to graduate fr my thai language lesson*

It may be innocent looking but the taste sure damn super killer!!!!
Hot and fiery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this was steamed fish on a bed of vege with another super killer soup
Gaeng Som = sour curry

I failed on this dish *hot & spicy tolerance failed big time*
with only a smack of its soup,
I swear my lips were thicker than Ms. Jolie,
and I was sweating all over fr a sauna experience over this dish!!!!!

Pengsan-ing dish
ppl may die bcoz of this!!!
eat with caution.
to save my lips fr exploding, we had Kao Klok Ka Pi - Belacan fried rice
trust me....this didn't help at all.

bcoz its was bursting with flavours
sweet, savory, sourish and of coz most importantly hot and fiery.
so JS ordered more vege to save my life,

lil did I know...........
-_-
.................
...................
................
my favourite kangkung were laced with lotsa lotsa super damn lots of
Chilis + belacan

every single square cm of my kangkung contained chilis.
but it's damn good.
Called: Pak bung fai deng
Pak Bung = morning glory plant
fai daeng = FIRE!!!!!
well that explains.
this was totally awesome!!!!
fried clams with thai basils in nam prik pow
nam prik pow = thai chili paste
forgot wat do u call this in thai,
steamed variety of seafood
crabs, mantis prawns, super huge fresh prawns in
lemon grass, chilis, coriander, chilis, lime, chilis, galangal, chilis
chilis, chilis, chilis, chilis, chilis, chilis, chilis.
"No name chicken"
yeah it was written in the menu that way,
crispy succulent chicken
so good we had 2 portions.

oh yea...did I mention that we washed all the super chili-ing thai dishes with
2 bottles of Dom Perignon 96???
ouch wat a waste!!! I can't even taste anything except chilis................

lucky I-Ching & JS can tolerate super hot can die food,
we even had to order an omelette for Prince C,
as for me.....MORE COCONUT PLSSSSSSSSSSSS

AND THEN THE NEXT DAY FOR LUNCH,
Pad Thai at Siam Express

yeah no matter how spicy,
I can never get sick of Thai food.
kao klok ka pi
with condinments of shredded mangoes, cucumber, shallots,
chilis, long beans, dried shrimps, sweet chicken
and a fiery belacan dip.
this was the starter called Meang Kum
with CHILIS, kacang, dried shrimps, coconut, young galangal, lime,
shallots and a tamarind sauce.
this is how u eat it...
wrap it up with an edible leave.
a lil bit of this and a lil bit of that.
Thab Thim Grob
chestnut + jackfruit in fresh coconut milk

will definitely visit Khun Thai again when I'm in Butterworth next!!!!

PS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MR. JOO!!!!!! MUAKS.
