{3D2N @ Hat Yai} FOODS!

continued from here!

Day 1 (December 7th, 2012)

3D2N @ Hatyai

so the earliest we could check in was 11am, with surcharge of 120baht which we thought was reasonable. there’s still 45mins to go before we could enter our rooms, brunch we went! lugging all our luggages together cos we were too cheap to pay 40baht each for safe keeping at hotel.

We asked the front desk staff for lunchy recommendation. She directed us to the back lane of hotel. We just wanna have a quick brunch so we heeded.

3D2N @ Hatyai

Assorted condiments like homemade chilli sauce, ajinomoto, fish sauce, and chilli flakes available in case you need extra flavoring.

3D2N @ Hatyai

Sugar cane beverage in bottles!

3D2N @ Hatyai
Tom Yum | 50 baht (RM 5)

Yesh my first meal was Tom Yam, of course! I couldn’t wait any longer 😛 but it was pretty disappointing. I can simply find a better one here lo.

3D2N @ Hatyai
Chicken Rice

=.=||| right? went all the way there and had chicken rice tsk 😛 the food was below average in our opinions.

after bruching & checking into our room, off we went for shopping! first stop was Lee Garden Plaza! and after awhile of walking, Karen felt that her energy was running low she needed a boost from FOOD again.

3D2N @ Hatyai
Pork Noodle Soup

it was one of the best thing we had in Hat Yai! yala all of us had a taste of it hehe. the broth was so flavourful and porkie was sooo soft and tender! it was from the first stall at the Food Court!

3D2N @ Hatyai
Mango Glutinous Rice

in between we had some snacks from the stalls in front of Lee Garden Plaza. slices of sweeeeet mango made the glutinous not so jelak. this is one of the must-eat when you’re on the land of Thai i reckon!

3D2N @ Hatyai
Conunut Ice Cream

all of us preferred this! the ice cream was unforgettably fine and refreshing! we went back for more for the next two days but the vendor was nowhere to be seen T___________T.

3D2N @ Hatyai
Sausage Wrapped with Bacon

i had this for three days consecutively as tea break snack! bacon is heavenly! 7/11 is one of the best place in Hatyai! we religiously patronised several times a day at different outlet.

3D2N @ Hatyai

for dinner, we had a authentic Thai meal at Man Chi Restaurant!

3D2N @ Hatyai

3D2N @ Hatyai
Tom Yum
3D2N @ Hatyai
Green Curry in coconut milk
3D2N @ Hatyai
Stir Fried Asparagus with Shrimp
3D2N @ Hatyai
Steamed Fish
3D2N @ Hatyai
Braised Fish Maw

it was a scrumptious dinner! portion was alright too to be shared among seven of us. the bill came up to around 150 baht (RM 15) per head.

 

Day 2 (December 8th, 2012)

day two morning was spent at Hat Yai Old Market where you can find almost everything you wanna buy, ranging from clothings to shoes, from dried sea products to titbits!

but before we started shopping,

3D2N @ Hatyai

we had brekkie here.

3D2N @ Hatyai
Pork Leg Rice

pork leg rice is another dish you might wanna try out when you’re here or any part of Thailand! you’ll get slices of pork leg flesh + fatty bom bomm served with some greens, a well-balanced diet for brekkie 😀 i asked for less fatty when ordering though.

if you’re in Penang and you wanna have a taste of it, head to Genting Cafe located at Island Glades. they also sell the best chee cheong fun!

3D2N @ Hatyai
Dry Mee

pretty fulfilling Karen said, although it seemed like the portion was small.

3D2N @ Hatyai

Karen & Dom, both Sarawakian have never seen a pomegranate before. so must take photo to commemorate the moment! they have never tasted a mangosteen until recently. gulp!

3D2N @ Hatyai

lucky me, i grew up eating it cos popo planted one at car porch.

3D2N @ Hatyai

commercial break. them in a tuk-tuk! after we have done all the damage (to the poor wallet).

3D2N @ Hatyai

Dom, Karen & I had a deletable chop for lunchy at one of the western food chain which i’ll blog about it in a separate post 🙂

3D2N @ Hatyai

and then we took tuk-tuk to Big C. it’s sort of like our tesco here, but 10x better. the food has muchy more variety! and i was attracted by this at Aunty Anne’s

3D2N @ Hatyai

something you couldn’t find in Malaysia 😀

3D2N @ Hatyai

it’s fragrant and crispy, perfect as tea break!

3D2N @ Hatyai

for dinner, we got a quick fix at 7/11! it’s my dream to have a meal in 7/11, standing at one corner and sluuuurping away. weird but true /shy.

3D2N @ Hatyai

but too bad, it’s tooo crowded it’s impossible to stand still as people kept pushing us away wtf. so no choice, we ended up sitting by road side. it’s okay because noone knows us there, we didn’t feel paiseh at all. some aunties saw us and kept saying eh like not bad (the cup noodles).

 

Day 3 (December 9th, 2012)

on our last morning at Hat Yai, we walked into random coffee shop for brekkie.

3D2N @ Hatyai
Pork Leg Rice again!

i can’t get enough of the porkie!

3D2N @ Hatyai

while they had roast porkie rice!

we wandered for one last round (read: last minute shopping) before we had lunchy again at our favourite shop!

3D2N @ Hatyai

seven eleven!!!

see they have myriads of instant food. malaysia’s 7/11 Y U NO HAVE???

3D2N @ Hatyai

had cup noodles again! this time we used one of the standing freezer as table top 😀 and we stood there eating like locals did!

3D2N @ Hatyai

that’s Dom showing how we used the lids as pointy bowl!

3D2N @ Hatyai

commercial break again.

ohai that’s me with wedding cars in front of Lee Garden Plaza. kiuuut aren’t they?

3D2N @ Hatyai

nostalgic bottle of sprite. when’s the last time you seen one?

3D2N @ Hatyai

and then we stumbled upon one cute cafe which i’ll blog about it later.

3D2N @ Hatyai

some of the titbits i bought! most of them are porky! mad love! and they are prised at only 15baht each. lays at 20 baht! seaweeds 15-20 baht! cheap or not!

that’s all for what i ate in Hat Yai! detailed post coming up later in the week!

 

have a happy week ahead everybuddy! 🙂

      there more authentic ma. like how we can get sarawak laksa here, but taste not nice one 🙁

      there’s durian ice cream in Indonesia! but we didn’t try any street food. their hygiene level is… *shake head*. Jakarta was bad, Bandung not too bad! might go back for MORE shopping and sight seeing!
