J and I spent two nights at Tenta Nakara. It was an amazing place to stay, and a big part of that was due to the food. It was some of the best of the whole trip! It was a little pricier than average though.
The ubiquitous Thai fruit shake, watermelon flavour:
J enjoyed what we later realised was a bucket - a potent mix of red bull, coke and rum.
Pineapple fried rice ($6). The fluffy shrimpy stuff on top was fantastic.
The rice came with cucumber or egg soup, we chose the cucumber.
Pad Thai in omelette ($4)
Inside the omelette:
Squid stuffed with minced chicken and glass noodle ($8.50)
Chicken wings stuffed with vegetables and glass noodles ($8.50)
Breakfast - there were a few set options, I chose the chicken rice which was delicious with some chilli mixed in. It came with fruit, iced lemongrass tea and a choice of hot tea, coffee or hot chocolate - I had hot chocolate and it was incredibly bitter!
J went for the fruit option, and it came with what we first thought was yoghurt, but was actually mayonnaise!
Shrimp paste fried rice, with omelette, beef and other bits and pieces ($8.50). This was fantastic, and the dried prawns on top of the rice were addictive.
It also came with a choice of soup, this time we went for the egg option.
Original fried rice ($5)
A very alcoholic margarita
Betel leaf wraps. I loved these, but John wasn't so keen. You put whatever combination of fillings you like onto the leaf, then wrap it up and eat it all. Starting from the top-left and going clockwise, the fillings were roasted coconut, red onion, lime, chilli, ? (ginger, maybe?), dried prawns, peanuts and a fishy sauce in the middle.
A (very badly photographed) chilli chicken hotplate.
Another breakfast - this time chicken noodle soup.
