khao-chae @ MoMo Cafe
Tea time, I went to MoMo Cafe of Courtyard Hotel Bangkok for the wood roasted sping chicken. Found out the khao-chae set is on her April special menu, at THB 250++ per set (for one person).
During April (while khao-chae being served) I eat khao-chae as much as I can. Some serve real good khao-chae sets, but the icy rice soup serving is stingily mini and the portion of tidbits being too much.
At MoMo Cafe, the set came with generous portion (good for two persons, at least) of soaked parboiled rice in icy jasmine scented water, separate ice cube in a small bowl, and of course, tidbits.
I like the decent serving, but not the taste. Sad! The icy rice soup, I suspect the chef didn't follow strict traditional recipe but only pour food aroma to make up the jasmine scented water. The tidbits, maybe were sourced from a market, precooked.
