Hai Somtam Convent


Convent's pok-pok

Hai Somtam Convent Pochana stands on Soi Convent for decades, used to serve good quality som-tum (spicy raw papaya pok-pok salad) and gai-yang (grilled chicken); still serves these Thai Issan delicacies, but not as good as before. In my recent revisit to Hai, I found that its grilled chicken is of cheap quality while the papaya pok-pok salad and other yum (spicy salad) dishes are still delightful to eat.

The soup looks very spicy and oily though.

I know Hai Somtam. The chicken looks quite dry.

I like their grilled chicken. The last visit was quite many years ago.
