khao chae Lai Rot
BANGKOK AMAZING GOURMET
Chilled summer begins
Khao-chae, or literally means rice-soaked (chilled), is rice soaked in icy cold jasmine-scented water served with Thai tidbits.
Benefited from a 19th century (khao-chae) recipe from the Princess Chalermkhet Mongkol's Palace, Lai Rot Thai Restaurant proclaimed its khao chae set as khao-chae-chao-wang (the royal people's chilled rice soup).
However, Lai Rot doesn't play hard enough with it, turns out its khao-chae is one of the most so-so (though not yet of garbage grade) sets I have ever sampled!
