Thailand will always hold a special place in my heart. To me, it is a beautifully romantic country with plenty of mystical tale that comes alive as soon as you stepped foot in it’s land. Being a Northerner, visiting Southern Thailand is quite a norm for me and my husband whenever we go back to my hometown, mainly Satun and Hadyai. But last year, we decided to explore further and took a short birthday a.k.a anniversary trip to Songhkla, Thailand.
Songhkla is actually a very famous state in Thailand, especially among those Muslims who eloped. To cut the long story short, Songhkla is the Asian version of Las Vegas. Attractions around it includes the zoo, mosque, temples and of course, the mermaid statue by Samila beach.
My husband and I did some eat-travel-write kinda thing and discovered that Thai food is absolutely delicious, and not quite easy to find authentic ones in Kuala Lumpur. We usually get the watered down version of Thai food, but lucky us, we found Chakri Palace Royal Thai Cuisine. Located on the 4th floor of KLCC, Chakri Palace Royal Thai Cuisine serves nothing but authentic Thai cuisine.

Here’s the Executive Chef Solehuddin Nutto showcasing must try items at the buffet
Thai style Kangkung Celup Tepung
Fried Onion Rings
It is a Thai leaf dish usually sold on the street of Thailand. I topped the leaf with roasted shredded coconut, toasted peanuts, lime, dried shrimp, bird’s eye chili , topped with palm syrup sauce. It was an explosion of taste in the mouth. Very interesting leaf dish and it was said to have medicinal value where it helps the digestive system and expels wind.
Assorted sambal and air asam dips to go with fresh ulams.
Kerabu Timun dan Nanas
Kerabu Ayam Cincang
Dessert section features assorted traditional Malay Kuih and Thai desserts.
Ubi Kayu Rebus
Bubur Pisang&Jagung and Bubur Kacang Hijau
Pulut Mangga or rather, the famous Mango Sticky Rice. I did not manage to try this but it is always gone whenever they replenish it at the buffet so I suppose this surpassed the expectations.
Red Ruby or Tub Tim Grob, coconut milk based dessert that is very popular among Thais when the weather is hot. The small reddish thing are water chestnut covered with tapioca flour, served with sweeten coconut milk and shaved ice and one can add jellied coconut and shredded jackfruit as additional item if they prefer. Very sweet and refreshing dessert.
