Our flight was in the middle of the day, so by the time we got there it was well after lunch and decided to have a snack by the pool (didn't want to miss out on that overcast sun!). I chose a cold rice noodle seafood salad which was lovely.
The lady was saying that they tried to find men glasses but couldn't, cause it's mainly women that order the cocktails, so lucky me! I lived on cocktails while I was away, I mean they are good for you right, all that fruit juice..
Naomi ordered the Spaghetti Marinara. This was our meal of choice when it came to something other than Thai, as we found out in the Islands that there aren't too many choices other than Thai or Western (which mainly included pastas, pizzas and sandwiches). The Italian dishes were more expensive than the Thai ones, but still very reasonable. You wouldn't pay over $10 for a dish, where as in Sydney if you wanted something decent you wouldn't find it for under $10.
I ordered some spring rolls to start, but as most of you might know in Thailand they don't have starters or mains, everything just comes out as it's ready. These were very oily, but also very tasty. The spring roll wrappers were thicker than normal which I quite liked.
Maya Beach (Where the beach was filmed)
Another day of messed up travelling times didn't see us arriving into Phi Phi until after 2:30,so we decided to go for a late lunch after a dip in the water. We found this really nice restaurant alongside the beach so we decided on that.
This was nice, but not as good as the one that I made in Chiang Mai!
Naomi got the mussamum curry which was spicier than normal, which I thought was great, but Naomi not so much. This was probably the best mussamum that I tasted while I was over there, but unfortunately it wasn't my dish....
Roisin got her Pad Thai, which I think from memory was the first time she had ever had it. Both of them had never had Thai food before. I think that things are quite different in England.
I thought I would try some Tempura, so I ordered the mixed vegetable one, but instead got the capsicum one. Again very oily batter and thick, not like the tempura I am used to at all...
Onto my search for a good curry..when this came out I wasn't very hopeful that it was going to be tasty and unfortunately my suspicions were right. Very watery and not too much flavour. What is it with the beef here also? When we get it in Australia, the beef is always in chunks and fall apart tender. Here it's sliced thinly and is quite tough.
