The Walking Street – Sunday 6 January

9 Jan

On Sunday, I visited the walking street – a street market which sells a variety of items –street food snacks, t-shirts, handbags, souvenirs… basically any touristy rubbish you might wish to buy, or food you may wish to eat.

Anything you may want to eat

Oddly, there are a couple of Buddhist temples dotted around the street – should you get tired, you can pray for escape from the evil gods of capitalism.

Some of the items that I found interesting were:

the recycled coke and beer cans which had been made into tuk tuks or motorcycles:

Recycle like you really mean it! Can made tuk-tuks

the eggs being cooked on a slow barbecue in banana boats:

the roast corn / sweet potatoes being lathered in a weirdly orange coloured butter and coated (sprinkled is just not the right word!) in salt:

Yuh salt!

Yuh salt!

and the fruit set out for immediate smoothies:



Following the trip to the street, I rushed home to meet Noom, the chef from the Spirit House, ready and waiting to cook

    Nicky, what was the flavour of the eggs? I quite like that idea. 🙂

      I didn’t try the eggs but it looked like they were beaten like an omelette with mushrooms and other bits included.
      They seem to use eggs for anything – among the omelettes that you can buy for example is Pad Thai omelette, which is simply Pad Thai wrapped in a thin omelette casing.
