The next morning of our BKK trip, we decided to pay a visit to Or Tor Kor Market. Interestingly, we've been to BKK so many times and this was our first visit there. In fact, I only learnt about Or Tor Kor Market recently. The market boasts of around 600 stalls selling seafood, meat, local fruits, dry ingredients, vegetables, traditional sweets and desserts, cooked food etc. It's very clean and well-organized and easily accessible by MRT and is just opposite Chatuchak Market.
Thai durians, with signature long stems.
The stall owner was very friendly and when she learnt that we were tourists, she vacuumed packed the salted fish for us so that there won't be a problem for us to pack the salted fish in our luggage.
All the vegetables are neatly packaged and displayed.
Then we saw the Thai durians and decided to buy 2 seeds to eat. Each seed or each pair were neatly wrapped for the convenience of customers.
The durian meat was very fleshy, thick, sweet and creamy. Not bad, but I don't think I could eat more than 2 seeds coz it was quite heavy on the palate. I still prefer the rustic kampung bitter type of durians.
Cooked food stall selling all sorts of pork items including intestines.
The roasted pork looked so inviting, we bought a packet. The crackling was very crispy and the meat was succulent!
Hubby also ordered this interesting dessert, with some springy stuff, coconut and water chestnut (red rubies)
After spending the morning at Or Tor Kor market, we were in need of some food massage and proceeded back to Siam Square.
Red ruby. Water chestnut in coconut milk.
Amazed by the amount of food we ate? Stay tuned for Part III w'here's there was more food to come!
