following the lead of reccomendations here, i went in search of the kanom krok.
i would reccomend anyone getting the krok to ask the lady to brown the bottoms very brown. mine were only lightly browned and i felt like overall it was a bit too soggy. the coconut on the top oozed out, adn i feel would have been better if it were all crisped. get the green oniosn in them. it was a very strange little treat, but good.
i have to say, if you wanna go to the temple, its best to go with several people, because for example, you can only order the kanom krok with 18 pieces, which is enough desert for a family of five. the spring rolls at another stand only come in pack of four. both of these foods costing 3 bucks for th plate. so its much more efficient to have a bunch of peopel and just get a bit of everything,a dn you could eat more for cheaper.
i was confused at first cause i couldnt find a drink at any of the stands, but they were down on the end. i guess they all try to serve something different so they dont compete too much with each other.
my favorite thing i got was the country curry. it was a yellow curry, with big chunks of onion adn carrots. the carrots seemd roasted or stewed. sooo good. reminded me of my southern food. just curious, does anyone know if that was issan thai? is that why it was called country curry?
the spring rolls were good too. everything is very resonable. i loved it. its such a great cultural experience. im going back next sunday for sure
