~ Bangkok food escapade ~ part 2

When you are in Bangkok one shopping center that you should not miss out is MBK (Mah Boon Krung) Center.
It's something like the Sungai Wang Plaza of KL. But the main attraction is the food court in MBK shouldn't be miss out. It got around 30 stalls selling all sorts of Thai delicacy. FYI, I did not take picture of the food court again :)

Pork knuckle rice - Served with rice, half boiled egg and salted vegetable. This is my personnal favorite, never miss everytime I go to Bangkok.

The ever famous Tom Yam Gong - Thats how they pronounce it in thai. Gong stands for soup i think. I don't think i need to further introduce this soup right?
Tom yum is characterized by its distinct hot and sour flavors, with fragrant herbs generously used. The basic broth is made of stock and fresh ingredients such as lemon grass, lime juice, fish sauce, tamarind, crush chilli, etc etc.

One of the desert shop that should not be missed in Bangkok is Mango Tango located at Siam Square. It sells lotsa Mango desserts from ice cream to juices to puddings.
This is an must order, can't remember what it's called. But you have a combo of fresh mango, mango ice cream and mango pudding. The fresh mango is sweet as honey and the ice cream is smooth and taste full of mango.

Tom Yam Gong...Gong stands for prawns/shrimps.

They have many Tom Yam names in Thailand.
