Hainanese Food in Bangkok

Our fourth day in Bangkok, the Hainan Dan Family Association invited us to lunch.

A range of dishes were served, some of them were my first taste of Hainanese food. They were so delicious, I wanted to replicate these dishes once I return to Singapore.

Quietly, I went to the back of the building to watch the cooks preparing our food. The locally sourced ingredients were fresh, but I was awed by the 3 gigantic steamers which contained food for 200 diners.

I met the boss of the catering restaurant. He was a cook from Hainan Island, migrated to Thailand twenty years ago and started his own restaurant serving authentic Hainanese dishes.

We had an enjoyable meal, it's amazing to find such good Hainanese food in Bangkok. I am eager to learn how to cook these dishes.

Below are some famous traditional Hainanese dishes :

Pork ribs and radish stew 白萝卜炖排骨 

在曼谷品尝传统海南特色菜肴, 忘不了的味道。。。。。

海南菜清爽的居多,很对我的胃口。

让我惊喜的海南四大名菜之一的东山羊,羊肉都是连皮吃。这个吃法跟新加坡不太一样,但是做出来没有膻味,而且连皮吃起来也更有嚼头。肉质比较细,味道也较清淡,小火慢炖收出的肉汁配上白饭拌在一起很香。

这顿饭, 让我长知识..., 以为海南菜只有那几道菜, 其实还有更多。 我要学煮海南菜给我的家人品尝。

    1. *protest* No, I did not.
      I went to the washroom which was at the back of the building to wash my hands before the meal and saw the gigantic steamers, so I went to get my camera.
      The boss was there so we chatted.
