We visit Hatyai recently during a family trip with my parents and my aunts. It was recommended by many friends but it was my first time here. It wasn’t my first Hatyai trip and I love Thai food a lot.
It took awhile before our lunch was serve to our table. The first dish serve was the fried vegetable (forgot the name) with fresh prawn. Really so fresh and delicious.
Braised Pork Trotters, one of the specialty menu. The pork meat was tender and a little bit too fatty. You must not miss out the sauce with the fermented cabbage layered on the bottom of the trotters. Match well with the white rice.
Mango Salad, one of the popular Thai dish and it had a good texture and taste.
Deep Fried Sand Whiting was so awesome and you can chew the bones. It deep fried to a golden and crunchy! Everyone love it.
Fried vegetable was normal but love the mild garlic aroma.
Tom Yam Kung was nice but not the best. It is sour but the aroma of the lemongrass and other ingredients didn’t stand out of it. Goes well with the white rice too but you might not like it because it was a bit too sour to some people.
The restaurant might not have air-conditioning but it is well equipped with fans. Most important is the cleanliness of the restaurant. Staffs was very helpful and they know a bit of Mandarin too.
Parking is a problem but if you stay around town area. You can easily get a tut-tut to drop you here or walk from your hotel. We walk here as it was just few street apart from our hotel.
Overall, the dishes was above average but not up to our expectation.
