Aarrgh. Only 10.30 a.m. and I'm hungry already. You've got to take me to this place! Please!

That otak otak-like dish is "hor mok" in Thai, and "amok" in Khmer - if it's heavier on the lime leaf and chili, then it's definitely from the Thai side of the border.

Cupcake - I made myself hungry doing this post. Let's plan on it!

Hi Phil - actually, it's not. 'Haw mawk?' I inquired. 'No, bplaa bping ('BBQ'd fish'),' Mrs. Tan replied. It may be steamed for a bit but it's definately finished over the fire, and there's none of that haw mawk-ish/amok-ish slightly wet custardy-ness. It's the fish pieces themselve that have an incredibly silky texture, not the whole dish. Essentially, it's flaked fish mixed with a dry curry paste. But man, is it tasty!

Phil

Wow. My bad. There is a version of amok (amok kchok) which is baked that way - but it has coconut milk and egg to make it mousse-y.

Robyn,

now you've got me wanting authentic Thai food. As if wanting (and not being able to have) authentic Malaysian food is not bad enough. Sadly, the Bay Area only seems to serve up weak, overly sweet copies of the real thing.

I normally don't like peanuts in my dishes... except when I'm having Thai food. :) And that first pic is exactly the kind of thing I'd order, without knowing what it is.

Robyn

Nate - how about the Berkeley Thai temple? I've never been but heard good things years ago. Though I'm sure they have no northern specialties, and probably only the standards (somtam, hawmawk, etc.). Still, Thais eat there so....
