Roti Mataba

I have a new favorite– something that we could easily buy in the market near us. It’s called Roti Mataba! Funny how “mataba” in our language means “fat.” Umm, this does really make you fat– if you have too much of it, that is.

It is mostly sold by Thai Muslims in markets, stalls and restaurants here in Bangkok.

This is how Roti Mataba looks like.. inside are vegetables and ground beef or chicken

What makes it yummier is what you eat roti mataba with– these fresh cucumbers, onions, ginger and chilli with sweet and sour sauce

There you go… it’s ready to eat!

I so love the mix of spicy, sweet, sour and the tasty filling inside.  I have read about food reviews of Roti Mataba and always, food bloggers say it’s one of the tastiest foods they’ve ever had in Bangkok!



Dinner @ Hot Pot

Our favorite neighbors invited us for dinner when their daughter who learns English with me graduated from her Master’s Degree.

We felt it was an honor to be invited by a Thai family, so we did not have second thoughts!

We went to Hot Pot, a restaurant in Fashion Island.

You just put in the meat and veggies into the boiling pot..

It's eat-all-you-can so you can just choose anything you want to put into your hot pot.

I love the dumplings and the pancit-- very similar to the ones we have in the Philippines so I really enjoyed that.

After that hearty meal, there was unlimited dessert so we got ice cream, those Thai sweets that is similar to our halo halo. And oh, by the way, drinks were unlimited too.  But I have a confession:  I am not that good in dining at eat-all-you can restos because I easily get full! Sigh.
