Bangkok trip – Day 2: Scrumptious meal @China town Scala Restaurant (唐人街银都鱼翅酒楼)

Yaowarat, Bangkok’s Chinatown, is a good place to me for having a wonderful dining experience. You will find the best and expensive Chinese restaurant, as well as the cheapest food stalls along the road, especially at night. The restaurant I visited is China Town Scala Restaurant, which represents one of the most upmarket dining options in the area, but the prices are still very reasonable to me, albeit much higher than at the street stalls. You can find this restaurant easily, as this large Chinese restaurant is located on bustling Yaowarat Road, right in the heart of Chinatown, and has a big signboard to attract your attention.

Shark Fin, 1000batt

We have ordered Shark fin – their signature dish. The shark fin they presented was authentic Thai-Teochew version, much different with the shark fin we normally have in the wedding banquet. The shark fin came in a clear but thick broth with crab meat, and we added the bean sprout and coriander, while the soup was hot, superb delicious, must try!

Peking Duck, 1000batt

The restaurant also famous with the Roast suckling pig and Peking duck, and we ordered Peking duck for our meal. But, I am wondered where is my duck, lauging, they served the Peking duck without showing us the duck and the portion of each duck’s skin was so big until we wondered are they serving us more than a duck. Anyway, is worth to try.

Claypot Big Head Prawn with Rice Noodles, 600batt

Does it look familiar? If you visit my blog before, you will find it is quite similar with the Crab vermicelli I posted before. Yes, they are in the same cooking way, but this is tastier. The cook will heat the clay pot (or metal pot) first, and place the pork belly as 1st layer, spring onion, onion and garlic as 2nd layer, rice noodles as 3rd layer, and prawn (which cut into half) place on top of all the ingredients. By the high flame, the essence of the prawn will be absorbed by the rice noodles. I love the rice noodle instead of the prawn, yum yum.

Vegetable in 4, 150batt

Fried rice with Peking duck

Osmanthus flowers Bird’s Nest, 300batt

We were satisfied when we have completed our scrumptious meal with this Osmanthus flowers Bird’s nest.  By the way, I enjoyed 10% discount when I present my e-coupon, which I get it from this website http://www.thailandfans.com/.  Do visit this website before you go to Thailand, as it provide a lot of discount coupon, which save a lot of money.
