The only way to taste the real Thai food is to walk to the market that hasn't been recommended on the internet, then point at something and eat it
It was a super silly, dopey day with these two cyclists who have the most delicious rides. I wouldn't have thought of biking around Southeast Asia or anywhere like they are doing. For this long vacation they had an old friend to keep them company, their bike, with new experiences along the way around the Asian scenery. Every country they go they will take one cooking class. And so they have a little blog on Facebook they add to when they have time to share their biking journey called "Bike Kitchen". On their blog, cyclists can find the biking route around Thailand and the yummy things they made, check them out if you're a bike fan!
The requested cooking dish came from the time these two were down south in Thailand and wandered into one of the markets. They saw Hor Mok being sold during their walk. At first they had no idea what it was, but they said, "let's try it," point their fingers at the yummy, delicate banana-wrapped, fish curry cake inside. After the first bite in, they said to each other, they have to learn this so they could make it at home. They were also surprised that this yummy Thai food never made it to Thai restaurants elsewhere, or even on outsider's blog!
Hor Mok is a delicate food to make, but yet it is created from simple ingredients as they said. There is no oil or anything hard to digest added, but it's still super delicious and super healthy. They put in a lot of hard work without any complaints, even when I said to them work on it more. It all paid off when the deliciousness got into their mouths. Hooooo my! "I got to have more," they said, one after another. It took 5 hrs to make but only 15 minutes to finished 4 of them each. There were obviously no leftovers.
The day was especially amazing for me, thank you guys for caring so much about Thai culture, the environment, and being silly. It was a memorable class and I positively drowned in joy.
