I'm sure you all missed me terribly when I swanned off to the South Thailand Islands for a quick pre-Christmas holiday. I'm sorry I neglected you for so long, but every once in a while it's desperately needed to get out of the Sydney fishbowl and spend time eating and enjoying rather than cooking. It was undeniably invigorating, inspiring, relaxing and a whole bunch of fun.
Another winner was this whole fish, gently steamed so that the flesh just collapsed under the tooth, slipped in a zing of lime sauce and sprinkled with a crisp wheat that finished the whole thing off with complete delight. We had some seriously good food on Phi Phi, all washed down with frosty margaritas and a few Tom Collins.
Back to the hawker food, I picked up these coconut and pandan jellies at the local market, I had tried them before and remembered them well, they are called Wun Ka-Ti and are so good. It's a layer of pandan jelly topped with a coconut cream then is all wrapped up in pandan leaves to make a little box shaped jelly. If you're texture paranoid I wouldn't go there but the taste is unlike anything else.
Alright i'm going back to my lunch of leftovers now. Tear.
