Som tum@ Chatujak, Bangkok

Will meet you at Chatujak, was the sms SF sent me while I was already at Chatujak.
I started to worry a little as my mobile was going flat soon, and searching for each other at Chatujak is like looking for a needle in haystack ._."
Guess both of us were lucky that day, we managed to find each other very quickly. After SF did her power shopping, we were all hungry, hot and thirsty.
We thought of leaving Chatujak for lunch, but SF suggested a stall that serves delicious thai salad as she has tried it before.
Most unfortunately, I didn't notice any signboard with English, but here's the place...Just remember the chicken sign board..
Some Spicy tuna salad.. It's a mix of tuna with lime, chopped shallots, bird's eye chilli, shredded cucumber and sauces..As it's sour and spicy; very appetising. Pretty good.
Next was the Crispy cat fish green mango salad.. This was my all time favourite. I've tried this in KL before, but this was much better as it had loads of catfish and it's cheap! (we paid RM4.50, i recalled i paid about RM20 for the one in Malaysia). The tangy shredded mango was sour but complemented the aromatic fried cat fish and crunchy peanuts to perfection. The sauce and spicy chilli complete this beautiful dish. Superb.
We had some spicy mince pork salad with the rice noodles.. The mince pork was cooked and mixed with lime juice, fish sauce (i think), sliced shallots and chillies. Again a very appetising dish, goes well with the dry rice noodles.
We had some grilled pork neck Pretty tasty stuff, the pork slices were juicy and slightly springy in texture. Lightly salted, tasted delicious with the accompanying spicy sauce too.
Last dish we had.. Prawn salad.. The prawns were sweet and juicy, and the batter was extremely crispy and very flavourful. The salad was generously tossed with dried shrimp, peanuts and sliced chillies. Lovely dish.
Down the meal with a glass of coke..aaaahhhhh
Find this stall at Chatujak weekend market. From BTS ( Mo Chit), turn right at the first junction. Walk pass the first block/ chunk of stalls. You'll reach a large open 'road' area. This stall is there. Happy searching :p

My fav snack place in chatuchak :). Also the only place i drink coke! After the heat and stuffiness walking at all the shops, i have to say nothing beats a bottle of coke with lots of ice.

Most likely will be there again in Oct with jen and addy.
