khao-chae @ Pa Noi


Chilled summer continues

Took a river ferry (2 baht) at Pier Wat Sanam-rua (Pak Kret, Nonthaburi) to cross the river, disembarked in Koh Kret, asked a local about khao-chae Koh Kret, she directed me to Raan Pa Noi - the khao-chae specialty vendor runs by pa Noi (auntie Noi) and je Jit (sister Jit).

A trip to Koh Kret, an island in Bangkok's vicinity (haha, yes Bangkok has island!), without a bowl of khao-chae to worship my little belly is a waste of the trip.

A trip to Bangkok in summer (April) without a bowl of khao-chae to enhance ones gourmet memory is also a waste of the journey.

Here, my share of khao-chae chao-mon (the Mon ethnic people style rice soaked in jasmine-scented water, serve with tidbits) from Raan Pa Noi in Koh Kret. Simply a treat!

khao chae chao-mon set, THB 70 set (for 2 persons), available all year round
