Hoi-Tod Chaw-Lae Restaurant, Bangkok…..oyster omelette. Mmmm. Double mmmm.

I have found it!!! I have found my new favourite restaurant!

This small, humble Thai eatery does have indoor seating, but it still qualifies as street food.  They proudly display a sign proclaiming them to make the 5th best pad Thai in the world.

Anyway, I really love, LOVE, thai food. That being said, my expectations are high [when are they ever low?] but I was seriously impressed by the food here. The Or-suan (oyster, fried eggs, rice flour) was fresh and well-prepared…one portion at a time. The egg and starch batter in is perfectly crunchy, crispy outside and soft, moist and gummy inside studded with plump, briny taste of the ocean. I love Pad Thai! Pad Thai is one of Thailand’s more famous dishes. A-OK on the pat-thai-sea-food (seafood, and rice noodles wrapped in egg)here, good texture and it is a piping hot amalgamation of crispy and gooey ecstasy.

Never judge a book by its cover nor a restaurant by its outlook either.  Hoi Tod Chaw Lae is no exception. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
