Kanom Jeen Nam Yam ~ simply wonderful and tasty


Seems everyone is going after street food nowadays, even the elites (though occasionally for them, maybe). Almost everywhere, you will find a sprawling metropolis of Thai cuisine ~ in temporary makeshift fire-hazard restaurants to small mobile cart. Everywhere.

I sat with my friend, one night, at the pavement of Silom Street to sample one of my favourite Thai food: Kanom Jeen Nam Yam. The dish consist of rice noodle, spicy fish/coconut milk-based gravy, herbs and a variety of raw vegetables. Wonderful, explosive taste. Fabulous, indeed.
