Had Yai Part 2- It's all about Food

I am so lazy to post this up...not in the mood to blog. But still have post this otherwise it will bcome a very very outdated post.

Warning: Long Post...Check the pictures will do...no need to read what i wrote if you are lazy...

I eat so much when in Hat Yai. Never feel hungry even once...actually once...The first nite after drinking the "teh ais".. i couldn't sleep. Then i feel hungry..

Ok, let me start with favourite food for this trip. The food is from the stalls in the Night Paradise. Something that i never thought i would try cos its not something i like.
What izzit? it's...............(drumroll)......................Tu Kar Pui....(Pork Leg Rice)
This is the "tu kar". "Tu Kar" was never my favourite. My aunt fully recommend this so i tried and i totally agree with her this is delicious. The "tu kar pui" was served with the green vege ( as seen on pic), "kiam chye" ( preserved salty vege) and a special chili sauce. Overall it tasted abit "kiam kiam" ( salty) and "swui swui" ( sour). Very appetizing ler... My aunt interview the seller, she don't have a shop or stall to sell her "tu kar pui" on normal days. She told us she only sell on this Year End Carnival nia. That means one year only open business for 3 days nia.We even "ta pao" (take away) back to pg and reheat it later but it does not taste as good anymore.

Another favourite is the pork skewer..something like satay but the meat are bigger portion.
We oso tapau this back..........

The first meal we had located somewhere near the central street market. where the shop sell fresh seafood. As kenny Kor wanted to had the oyster. Other than the oyster, we had the deep fried soft shell crab and Seafood Tom Yam.
I didn't try the oyster...I dun really like oyster. even if i eat fried oyster i only like the egg...not the oyster.. This is our lunch for the first day.

For dinner, we had Japanese buffet @ Ginger Restaurant-Novotel. Why come all the way to Had Yai to eat Japanese Food? First, it was recommended by friends , 2nd you can't find RM 39.50 +++ eh Japanese Buffet Dinner in Malaysia. If got oso damn paria 1.The price shown does not include beverage. So there will be additional charge for beverage. Even if you asked for plain water...they served you mineral water. You will definetely need water after eating the food. Cos the seasoning in the food damn heavy...eat adi very thirsty.. The most tempting food for me is the dessert....let me show you the picture of the dessert corner...Look tempting right! They display the dessert in a cart. The dessert also had the chocolate fountain but i did not capture the pic.Mini Dim sum... You should be wondering why dim sum in Japanese Buffet? I oso wanna know lo... I try it cos it is cute la...the taste..so-so nia lo.This is the Zaru Soba ( i forgotten the japanese name..luckily Kacang is around can ask her) The japanese cold noodle. My aunt try it...i did not. She had two she say very nice wor.

The next day........we had our branch at Chester's Grill- Lee Garden. Chester's Grill is a fast food deli.The food is very nice. I had the Spicy Grill Chicken Burger.Let the pictures tell you......lazy to type liao.

Later at night, we had our dinner at the Night Paradise. What we had? You see lo...( Soli ah leng, i know you mention it is difficult to see the picture thru slides...but i lazy to upload liao...slides easier)


Lastly, our midnight snack...Not i wanna had supper le but this stall only open in the midnite..The mini "Yew Char Koay" dipped in kaya (coconut Jam). The "yew char koay" is normal lo...but the kaya very nice.

The last day we had our branch at the Lee's Garden Food Court. Didnt take pic cos was in a hurry and hungry. I had "Kuey Chiap"...Very nice i like the soup.........

Oh..ya! Not forgetting bout Chocky.... Look like the Rocky we had in Malaysia right but this is the giant stick.I've been searching for it...finally found it in Diana's Watson. But they don't have the chocolate flavour. I bought it anyway cos it is cheap only RM 4.20.

Finally, finish liao. i take more than an hour to blog this post. Very minor text but it takes time to edit and upload those pictures. Hope you guys enjoy the food virtually.......
