Panang Moo taste like rendang

Filed under: Food,Thailand,Travel — Alex @ 12:00 am

I have to make this post because my host, Zach really adores this dish. Anywhere he goes, he will order this dish for sure. The name of the dish is Panang. I think panang is a cooking method and normally you can get the choices between pork, beef or chicken. His favorite is Panang Moo. Moo means pork in Thai. The taste is quite similar to rendang which is a popular Malay dish.

His favorite panang moo gotta be the one from the restaurant that is located at his building. It’s also his favorite because it is so convenient for him to order. All it takes is only one phone call and the dish would be delivered right to his door step.

Sometimes we do go downstairs to eat in the small restaurant that caters for all the residents around his condominium. I prefer to go downstairs as I can see more dishes being offered in the menu.

Panang Moo

This how Panang Moo looks like. Is kinda oily but I guess this how you make it delicious. Is best to eat with hot steamed rice with some fresh cucumber. If you ever visit Thailand, do give this dish a try.

Spiced Thai Catfish

I’m sucker to trying new stuff and obviously when I saw this catfish dish, I gave it a go. Most of us who are familiar with Thai food knows the famous Catfish Mango Salad. This fried catfish with Thai spice is also uber delicious. It has the crunchy texture and yet juicy and soft in the inside. I have no idea what spices they used but I hope to find out soon so I can cook it myself when I’m not in Thailand.

At the point of eating these dishes, we are schedule to fly to Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. I’m very excited to be going to Phnom Penh for the first time. So do stay tune for more blog post about my Cambodia adventure.

      Heya there Michelle…I am pretty sure there’s beef panang….I had Pinoy friends who taste rendang and they really liked it. They compared it to some dry kaldereta, but I have to say rendang or panang taste so much better if you into spicy food.

      Well..find a hard to pronounce Tagalog word for Zach to pronounce and then you can laugh back at him if he happens to say it funnily.
