Back from pilgrimage..

Well, not really pilgrimage, but my annual trip to food and shopping paradise :)
It was also Dragon girl's second trip to Bangkok- her first trip being mostly for massage, sightseeing and relaxation; hence, this time around, the trip would be on shopping and loads of food.
Food was planned along with shopping location, to make things easier for us ladies :p
There were some repeats on our eats such as the grilled fish and som tum place at Chatujak market.
Most unfortunately, the grilled fish was no longer that nice; it was only luke warm when served..
Luckily the som tum place was still nice, though the serving's a tad smaller..
Other repeats include the juicy, tender samurai pork burger at McD's..
And we tried their newly launched chocolate pie..
The filling was more like chocolate custard; it was not too sweet, pretty ok.
Was looking for Amaltery ice cream at Siam Paragon, but it was no longer in operation, so we went back to our usual mango dessert place- Mango Tango..
Had the usual...
Glad to say that the mango ice cream has improved (compared to last year), the new addition of glutinous rice was decent too. The mangoes were ultra sweet and dripping with loads of juices. Yummy!
The second dessert was yummy too.. The crunchy corn flakes gave a nice crunch to the texture; the bottom was filled with mango chunks, mango ice cream and mango puree..
What else did we ate during our time in Bangkok?
Well, guess that will be in the next few posts....

550ml jar of faith: oh, i saw that ice cream 'teppanyaki'- is that cream and fudge? mango tango is not located in Siam Paragon, it's across the street, at siam square, at soi 4 (i think)
