09:50 01/09/2012 Sunshine showed up from our huge window, greeted us Sawadee. But it’s not the main reason why we drag ourselves early in the morning during our second day in Hatyai. We’d been told by our travel buddy from the initial acquaintance yesterday that he visited a Dim Sum restaurant nearby. When he narrated his good experience we can’t hide our enthusiasm and would tow him in an instant. But we got dismayed when he said, they only open early in the morning and re open in the evening. We don’t want to miss that opportunity and and deprive our empty gut.
Khornang Dim Sum looks like a typical Mamak shop in (Malaysia) or Carenderia (Food stall in the Philippines) but don’t be deceive by the restaurant exterior. You’ll never get lost in this restaurant, it’s just located back opposite of our temporary abode Tune Hotels Hatyai.
The aroma coming from the newly steamed dim sum blown us away. It was our first time to see a tower pile of bamboo steamers. Choices was endless and we can’t decide what to choose. We just relied from our friend’s recommendation since he had already tried some of it.
Pork Shrimp Siomai – delicious and made us forget the siomai we had tasted in our life.
Shrimp Dumpling – no BS, it’s heaven in our mouth to our gut.
Dumplings – surprisingly delectable
Steam Goat (Caldereta like) – The winner, the goat meat was so tender and late realized we consumed 3 bowls of this.
The Steamy Bun – your not so usual Pao.
For a spicy kick we paired it with their famous Thai Chili Sauce. The aroma of chili’s, vinegar and spices is intoxicating.
But choices for Dim Sum are not only limited to steamed ones, they have a cold variety but we opted not to try these, we’ll save it on our next visit 🙂
After waiting for 15 minutes of choosing our own sets of dim sum, it only took us 10 minutes to devour it. We’re so damn hungry and can’t get enough and since we’re on a diet we ordered another set.
From empty gut to protruding stomach, that’s how we started our pig out day. We would highly recommend this place for it’s food and value of money.
