Street Delight

Posted: September 1, 2010

An old friend of mine recommended strongly that I try out an upscale street restaurant called Jay Fai in the old part of Bangkok, at 327 Mahachai Rd. This turned out to be a great journey for a gastronome like me. The cooking is done on an open live charcoal-fired wok by the lady chef owner and is truly a one man show.

The Chinese-inspired Thai pan-fried noodle in thick gravy with seafood is a real treat. The crab omelet is a must try dish. The chef uses the deep-fry technique “Zha” which results in crispy golden brown and dry on the outside while tender and juicy on the inside, with a puffy appearance. The Won Ton soup was beautiful and delicious too, served with three big sparkling fresh banana prawns.

Jay Fai’s cooking was based on high-quality ingredients, which were cooked in numerous ways, stir-fried, deep-fried and boiled, but which are usually kept simple and cooked with little oil to enhance the food’s fresh flavour.
