On my very first operating flight, Bangkok, I had had the most terrible time in my life and it tunrned out to be one of those days where you doubt if you are in the right place.
After a good long 7 hour, busy-as-a-bee, flight, we reached the hotel dead tired, and I really needed to cheer myself up to even think of operating the flight back. Luckily, one of my colleages and a senior, knew bangkok like the back of her hand, and knowing how much I had struggled through the flight, was nice enough to take me out for shopping and dinner to cheer me up and give me the ''pep'' talk.
We ended up going to one of the most famous malls in bangkok, MBK mall, and straight to the food court. That is the time I first tasted this heavenly dish and WOW! did it do its job at the best in pulling up my spirits! I remember eating 2 massive portions of this and still craving for it :) My very considerate colleage din't even need to give me the talk of 'hang-in-there' after seeing that the meal had done the job perfectly for her :)
A beautifully sweet, spicy, herby chicken curry with jasmine rice. Perfect combination!
This is and will always be one of my most favourite thai dishes.
