Pig Out at Bangkok!

I stayed at Inn Saladeang and great food is just a stone throw away at Baan Restaurant!

Before we serve the dishes, here’s the simple introduction to Thai food. The unique characteristic of  Thai cuisine is the use of large quantities of spices, fresh fruits and vegetables found and grown in Thailand in the cooking.  A typical Thai foodfare consist of salads, finger food, curries, soup, fish / seafood accompanied with rice and a sweet ending with desserts.

Let’s start with the appetizer:

Sotong Salad for the blur and tangy
