The political situation in Thailand is still a very unhappy one, and I am not free to speak my mind on the matter. But this blog needs to go on, and I'm clearing out the backlog of articles to my website. The travel site in particular was neglected and I'm updating it extensively. I've also got a new web-host, this time its moved to Switzerland! I'll explain more about this on Life sometime when I'm permitted.

Tom Yum Noodles


There's been a coup at! Chef Appon was removed at spatula point, and in is Chef Win! Chef Win is an actual Chef, and long time contributor to this blog. He's back from work in Singapore and will be making videos to fill the time till the situation in Thailand improves and he opens his own noodle shop.

Today's recipe with video is Tom Yum Pork Noodles, a rich sour Tom Yum soup base, noodles for the carbs and bulk of the dish, pork and fish balls and meat for the protein, beansprouts for vegetables, and fried garlic and other garnishes to make it interesting!

Noodle dishes can be very daunting with so many ingredients but take it step by step and you'll get the hang of them. I've made a video of Chef Win preparing the noodles for you below.

Frizzy Pork Hair Sandwich ( Sandwich Mu Yong )


This is one of the uses for frizzy pork hair. We eat it as breakfast food with coffee.

This is probably one of the simplest Thai dishes to make.

Fried Pork Garlic Sandwiches ( Kanom-Pan Na Mu Tod )


These deep fried pork sandwiches are also great as an appetizer or snack, the only downside is the amount of fat in this dish. Not suprisingly the bread soaks up some of the cooking oil and so its best to only eat these as a treat or as a small part of a larger meal.

Spicy Prawn Salad Sandwich ( Sandwich Yum Gung )


This is a mixture of Thai spicy prawn salad and falang bread, to make a picnic sandwich with Thai flavours. For the photograph I let some of the filling spill out of the bread at the front for this photograph, so that you can see it clearly.

Fried Prawn Sandwiches ( Sandwich Murn )


These fried prawn sandwiches are rolled up for extra presentation. When I made them for the photograph, I used wholemeal bread, but that didn't really work, it is better to use soft white bread, because it is easier to roll.

Red Curry Loaf ( Sandwich Mu pud Prik Gang Dang )


I really enjoyed the yellow curry Turkish style sandwich I made the other week, and so I wanted to try something in the same vain. Here I made a Thai red pork curry, scooped out the centre of a large french loaf and fill it with the curry.
