Waterview Restaurant @ Dannok

Waterview restaurant at Danok is one of the most visited restaurant in Danok, because it’s special. How special? You will know soon.

Anyway, the restaurant is located quite outside from the main town. The road lead to there is very small, hence I do advice one to go there when the sun is still out.

Since I am not driving myself in, I go there using the hotel taxi. Which cost me RM30 for a round trip. It’s just a short trip by the way, which takes around 15minutes each journey, but since we are sitting the huge VIP style van, I think the price is pretty ok.

Breakfast Street Food @ Dannok

As lively as Dannok gets around 6PM till 8PM almost every night especially weekend, most of the time it’s a quiet town.

For breakfast, one will have a hard time trying to found a shop to eat in. However, if you don’t mind sitting by the road for your breakfast, then you will have plenty of option.

Quite a few stalls selling Koay Chap (粿汁), which is a bit different from what we normally get in Malaysia.  Koay Chap is a dish with a special type of noodle. The texture is also different and it’s doest taste a bit like koay teow, but not really so. They are not stingy with the ingredients at all which make it quite a filling bowl of noodle. 6.8/10

Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant @ Langkawi

After the 4 hours island hoping, both me and LY are sorta exhausted already. However, since both of us have a bad breakfast, we both agree that we should have something better before we check in our hotel.

Driving around Cenang beach, and Sawadee Thai Seafood Restaurant certainly caught my eye.

However, nobody bother to served us or acknowledge that we will be served soon when we are here. Only 1 waiter is taking orders, and no other waiter are to be seen. We sat for almost 10 minutes before someone finally come to us. I am still amazed on my patience, maybe I am too tired? Hmm….

Luckily, the food here is good. The Tom Yam fish here reminds me of my all time favourite Tom Yam at my home town, which already closed down few years back. I am happy that I can finally try something similar here again! 8.8/10

The pork leg rice @ RM4 looks really pale and uninteresting when it served, but it’s good. The meat is super tender, the gravy is nice and it just taste amazing! Eat it with their chili, it is just greatttt!! However, the vegetables taste bitter though. 7.5/10

Day 1 @ Danok, Thailand (2011)

I had visit Danok quite a few times, but it’s really really a boring place, unless you are here for you know what.

I usually came here for few hours only and I am back.

However, for the first ever time, I decided to overnight here.

Annathai Kitchen Thai Economy Rice @ Penang

Economy rice is found everywhere, as it’s to cater people who just want to grab a fast lunch or maybe dinner, and most importantly, not paying too much on it. It’s sorta Malaysian version of fast food, as in fast fast food. Hence, most economy rice stall are found in normal coffee shop only, without bother much about the place of dining.

However, Annathai Kitchen at Pulau Tikus, Penang is doing something different. Not only it’s located inside a house which give you some small little cafe style feeling when you are inside, it also serve Thai food instead of the normal Chinese food we found in most economy rice stall.

Due to LY is a Siam Laksa freak, and as long as it’s on the menu, she will order it. And yes, although Annathai Kitchen is selling economy rice, they do have a small menu for few other Thai dishes that you can order.

The Siam laksa here come with a very different setting from what you usually get when you order a bowl of noodle.Yea, we have to mix all the ingredients including the noodles ourself, and the only reasons I see them doing this is they can speed up their preparation time only. However, this had certainly lead to the noodles and ingredients are not hot enough when served, especially the soup is not piping hot too.

However, the Siam Laksa here is still good. It only cost RM3 but it taste really really good. LY even say that this is her favorite now as it taste much more better than the one at Tan Jetty.

I beg to differ though. Besides, although the first time we ate it was awesome, and when we return here after 2 weeks, the standard drop a lot. Consistency is very important for anyone in F&B business, and if you can’t freaking maintain your standard it’s a fail. All of us were disappointed one our 2nd trip and surely I will come back again once soon to see what happened in the next trip. (8.5 for 1st trip, 6.8 for 2nd trip)
