Pinggan and Mangkok

On our way back from Hatyai last weekend, we dropped by this Thai food restaurant at Sungai Petani for dinner. It's called Restaurant Mangkok, famous for its Thai food.

First, pardon for the poor quality photos, as it was quite dark there so I have to use flash.

Us. Everybody were quite tired already, it was a restless trip.....

Now, the food....

we ordered this squids, it tasted quite plain, but still acceptable

This is the spicy 'sam tai tin wong' 三大天王. Nice~

This is a must-try. Dark soy sauce chicken with ginger. Super nice I tell you. I finish all the gravy haha. The dark soy sauce is from Thailand

This is another must-try, siam style steamed fish. Tasted like tomyam but more sour. Notice the cili padi? They made me sweat like mad. The soup is refillable

Curry assam bali tong (sea snails), sea snails are not my favourite though as I find it hard to suck out the snails inside, haha =D But the curry assam is G-O-O-D

lastly, their signature steamed prawns, a little bit of spicy and sour, the taste is unique!

Total bill including drinks are about RM 170 which is quite reasonable! This was my second time there and the food still taste as nice as before!
