Sichon (สิชล), Thailand – This is one of these pristine seaside villages, that just about unseen Thailand, and what I cherished a lot about it was that it’s virtually utterly non-commercialized.

Ok, so my spouse and I have been spending a while in Nakhon Si Thammart, southern Thailand, visiting household. Nakhon Si Thammart occurs to be one of my favourite provinces in Thailand for Thai meals, recognized for being spicy and harsh, and you’ll discover some wonderful delicacies.

One day, we drove over to the tiny seaside neighborhood village of Sichon (สิชล), I had heard a few small native fish market, and I used to be excited to test it out. We arrived at about eight am, and it was one of these place the place I acquired so excited as a result of it was image good. But then I noticed all of the empty trays of fish and I believed I had arrived too late as a result of all of the fish have been gone. Luckily, an Aunty defined that the fishing boats hadn’t but arrived, to my reduction.

The fish market itself was lovely, stuffed with pleasant individuals, small scrumptious Thai road meals snacks, and surroundings to dream about. We had some patongko (ปาท่องโก๋) – 10 THB ($zero.28), Chinese doughnuts and Khanom krok (ขนมครก) – 20 THB ($zero.58), coconut griddle desserts, for breakfast, as we waited for the boats to return in.

Unfortunately the catch in Sichon (สิชล) as we speak wasn’t the very best, they have been principally small fish and nothing too thrilling. But I did discover an Aunty promoting some eels, and that caught my consideration. The subsequent factor , I used to be on the again of her motorcycle, and we went again to her home to cook dinner spicy chili eel (ผัดเผ็ดปลาไหล). It was actually a tremendous expertise seeing her cook dinner the eel at her dwelling in the village countryside.

For the remainder of the morning we drove round Sichon, having fun with the gorgeous seaside coastal surroundings and discovering a couple of attention-grabbing issues alongside the best way. They don’t actually have many eating places to select from, so lastly we discovered a small Halal eater on the aspect of the seaside and went for it. Again, the Aunty’s have been extraordinarily pleasant, and we ordered a couple of easy Thai dishes to eat together with the eel.

Sichon (สิชล) is a real off the crushed path vacation spot in Thailand, and what I cherished a lot about it’s that it’s so non-commercialized, peaceable and quiet, and the individuals in the neighborhood are so pleasant and hospitable. It’s one of essentially the most memorable locations I’ve traveled in Thailand in a very long time!

  1. Mark, no matter how full I'm from my meal I can always whack some more every time you lean to your right! You just make everything taste good. Looking fwd to visit Thailand again.

  2. ขนมครกแบบแคะทีละอัน ดีจัง กรุงเทพไม่เหลือแล้ว

  3. Hehe I was kinda wanting to see you attempt that coconut ??
    What other skills have you adapted to since living in Thailand?

    I live here in Australia, for the most I have lived a normal childhood, sports, hobbies, school, studying. Many Aussies with no ethnicity would relate to this as the "normal" — what I love to identify with is my Filipino-half (half Aussie/Pinoy) Mum used to make her own grated coconut & coconut oil and save the water too! For cooking, sweet or savoury dishes, or using the oil for scalp treatments and save the water to make a refreshing filo beverage. But what stood out was the fine grater that was attached to a small wooden stool that we would collect the grated coconut wit a large stainless steel bowl.
    I realised that wasn't the normal things kids in Oz do…I love that I inherited doing this!

    …20years later and coconut oil is the hype for everything! ?

  7. Ricky Ricardo:  I could not believe it…What the hell"  This could have been a whole different vlog – "….News reporter:  In the search of the missing famous food blogger Mark Wiens, his camera was found severely damaged. Only a small part of his video could be retrieved and it shows Mark's last location… Smiling from ear to ear, on the back of a scooter being driven by a complete stranger, to an unknown Final Destination (It's not just a series of movies! It's real life).  The woman has now  been identified as "Auntie".  Be on the lookout for not only this Auntie but all Aunties trying to lure you to their homes with the promise of cooking authentic Thai seafood dishes.  We believe Mr. Wiens was not able to resist the offer of a Thai Eel dish LOADED with spicy chili peppers. Updates will be updated upon the new changes of update at later update.  *Cheryl*
