Day 4 (Trat ตราด): Eastern Thailand Food and Travel Tour. Watch all 8 videos here:
Trat (ตราด) is a beautiful tropical province in Eastern Thailand, home to a wonderful culture and lots of delicious food. But one of the best places to eat Thai food is in someone's home, home cooked food is the best. So today we had the opportunity to visit a village in Trat, forage for a few ingredients, and cook some amazing, very local regional specialities.
Baan Huai Raeng (บ้านห้วยแร้ง) - This is a beautiful tropical village, and they also offer home-stays and cultural tourism. I contacted them to arrange a food experience, and I think they did a fantastic job.
Khao haw kab mak (ข้าวห่อกาบหมาก) - This is the first dish that Aunty made, a mix of fried rice and ingredients all within a banana leaf and another outer wrapper. It was a delicious mix, soothing in the morning.
Khanom jeen sao nam (ขนมจีนซาวน้ำ) - This wasn’t planned at all, but Uncle was planning for another group and decided to make a dish for all of us to eat - khanom jeen sao nam. This is a Royal Thai food dish, that’s not common to find, and it was delicious.
HEre are the two main regional Thai food dishes we cooked:
Sour curry with local vine called sandan (แกงส้มใบสันดาน) - I still can’t find the name in English of the local vine, and they made a sour curry with fish and shrimp. Awesome dish.
Gaeng kradom (แกงกระดอม) - The little fruit is called Gymnopetalum chinense in English and it’s bitter tasting. They made a curry with shrimp and curry paste. It was awesome, I loved the bitterness.
Interesting ingredients: Chamuang (ชมวง) - gacinia cowa Bai sandan (ใบสันดาน) - local vine Kradom (กระดอม) - Gymnopetalum chinense
It was a fantastic day in Trat, exploring regional Thai food and unique dishes and ingredients in the village!
