Not much to write home about seeing as we arrived into Langkawi late afternoon. Suffice to say we didn’t spend much time looking for amazeballs food and this is all I could be bothered ordering from some small restaurant for early evening dinner:
Mutton curry(nice), vegetable curry (nice), honey chicken curry (sweet and nice), deep fried beef (crunchy and sweet and nice), and a whole bunch of other random stuff I picked from the help yourself counter for the princely sum of 1 pound fifty including a 7-UP.
Then we went back to our hotel and started watching a film, but I got hungry and ordered beef rendang from room service:
This was really rich and nice and the beef was quite tender. But being room service it was quite expensive and cost something like 7 pounds.
Today was such a tough day! I mean, cold and raining and not in any way spent tripping around some amazing beaches in 30 degrees and wall to wall sunshine:
After our hell on Earth day trip, we headed back to Kuah on Langkawi where we found a very backstreet Thai place:
As you can see it was fairly rustic, but something told me it was going to be very good; especially as the menu was all in foreign and GF had to translate it for me.
This is Thai fried rice which came with squid, egg and kale. It was well balanced but nothing incredible.
We also ordered some Tom Yum soup:
And let me say this: all other Tom Yum soups shall now be judged against this one. The base was perfectly balanced and a whole bunch of spices including lemon grass, lime leaves, galangal, chilies and some celery type thing I’ve never had before, added up to a very intense tasting experience. Cost of both dishes including 2 drinks, a ridiculous 3 pounds 30 pence!
So that was day 9 and 10 and I only have 3 more days left before I return to cold and miserable UK <sad face>. But maybe you can cheer me up by telling me your favourite travel story? Or maybe your best sunburn joke? And you can totally do that here or on Twitter!
