During our stay in Panwa bay we tried out some of the local restaurants and I think Sawasdee may have been my favorite!
It was a small place right on the ocean front which offered a quirky environment with a stunning view. The menu was varied featuring authentic Thai cuisine to the typical international staples.
I opted for Thai fish cakes (I had to right!?!) followed by a beef coconut curry of some kind (I can’t remember it’s exact name any longer). Gav went for satay and a lighter curry. It was all truly delicious but mine was very rich and overall I found the food in Thailand to be a little salty for my taste.
Great place….and cheap!
Whilst in Thailand we were unbelievablely healthy. I mean seriously, considering we were on holiday, our “naughty” consumption remained very reserved.
However on our second to last day I rebelled against the crazyness and ordered us a poolside snack to share. We went for mushroom quesadillas and a satay selection. They were so very tasty, I wished I’d ordered more food earlier! The quesadilla were particularly tasty, if not a little greasy…..but may that’s what’s made them good!!

Thursday night required a healthy dinner and I opted for a fish dish.
This meal could be dubbed a “one pot dish”, it really was as simple as throwing it all in a pot and leaving it in the oven for 20 minutes.
Then end result was much better than expected. The salmon soaked up all the ginger and coconut flavor and the whole dish was drowned in a delicate creamy coconut sauce. It left me feeling like I had enjoyed a “take away meal” but with the benefit of it being low cal, low fat.
Defiantly a dish quick and easy enough to repeat!
I rarely make thai food. In the past I’ve found the signature lemongrass flavor unappealing but these days my pallet has adjusted and I’ve grown to like it.
So on Monday night when I delved into Jamie’s ministry of food and opted for this prawn green thai curry I was truly excited for the powerful flavor bursts and perfumed delight that surely it would result in right?
I was soooo disappointed. The meal tasted nice, don’t get me wrong but it defiantly lacked the umph I had hoped. Basically it was a tad on the bland side and although I won’t be making this again, I am going on the hunt for a better green Thai recipe!
I know what your saying…. For £2 what should I expect right?
I called into tescos on my way to work to buy some cake making ingredients and due to the terrible weather I thought I’d grab lunch to save me going out.
I tried this exciting looking box, but excitement it lacked!
When cooked, the contents filled less than a third of the box leaving it to be snack sized rather than lunch worthy.
The taste wasn’t terrible but I’d advise you somy don’t bother 😕
