Airports lunches

Shortly after the WC season, I went on a holiday with free flight tickets! Long live Air Asia!

It was my 1st visit to the Low Cost Carrier Terminal ("LCCT"). Luckily we took cab or else we would most probably miss the crucial turn off point and end up in Johore instead. Budget airport for budget airline need not mean budget for ink/stickers/space on the signboards, right? Tsk tsk tsk.

Arrived early and needed to kill 1 1/2 hours before flight. So, Phitoy and I went to Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and had this:-
After much munching, chit-chatting, people watching and magazines thumbing, we boarded the plane.
After about 3 hours later, we landed in ...Bangkok, Thailand! One of my favourite city. Because of the food and shopping, of course.

Phitoy got hungry again. What to do, budget airline does not serve free peanuts-wor. Saw this self-service outlet, (Aiya, cannot recall the name. Just remember that it had quite a catchy sound to it. Will update once my brain cells work again.) doing brisk business so we tried. Procedure: Order and pay at the counter. A numbered plaque is given which they'll collect when your food is served. Phitoy had Wantan Noodle with Roast Duck set which came with meat dumplings in soup while mine was the Assorted Dimsum Plate which had a Charsiew Pau, a brown pau with some kind of sweet filling, 2 Siewmai and 2 cute-but-I-do-not-know-what small white dumplings. The Roast Pork (Siew Yok) was an additional order. Food verdict: Nice presentation but tastewise, both of us can't finish and the portions were not big. That should tell you! :p Do you know that the Thai Roast Pork ("Siew Yok in Cantonese") are actually deep fried in oil?

That was quite a disappointing 1st meal in Thailand but the good news is that WAS THE ONLY meal that disappointed!! :) Yes much much more to come. Food that are sooo sinfully good that any sore-throat thereafter is well worth it!
