We devoted our second to the last day in Bangkok to shopping in Central World mall.
After an hour or two of window shopping we headed to the top floor of the mall in search for food. There were several restaurants but we chose Phan-Khom because of some interesting food items we saw on the menu.
Fried spring rolls filled with kani (faux crab meat) and cream cheese was simply ingenious. The best thing about this dish was the sweet and spicy mustard sauce. That’s how I describe it but it tasted really better than that. We couldn’t decide if the heat came from wasabi, hot mustard or both. It really gave life to the simple spring rolls that I can’t wait to replicate at home.
Phan Khom spring rolls – 85 baht
I’ve had better pomelo salad in Manila.
pomelo salad -95 baht
The sauce was good but the ribs weren’t tender and the taste didn’t permeate in the pork. It seemed like the sauce was just poured over the hastily cooked pork ribs.
Phan Khom baby pork spareribs with special sauce -125 baht
If you find yourself in Central World in Bangkok do yourself a favor and skip this ‘contemporary’ restaurant. The servings were tiny and not cheap. When we walked further we discovered so many more restaurants that looked even better. Oh well we can’t have all fabulous meals in Bangkok right?
