ソムリエで料理研究家の酔う子が自由気ままに世界で飲み歩く様子をお届け

カテゴリ: タイ・Thailand

バンコクの地下鉄MRTのラーマ9世(Pa Rama 9)駅の近くに中国大使館があります。
その裏辺りにタイ人の友人が住んでいた数年前泊まりに行ったら、この辺は美味しいカオマンガイ(タイ風チキンライス)の店がたくさんあるのよお、と連れて行ってくれました。
ふっくら茹でたチキン、チキンの茹で汁で炊くご飯に、トロトロに煮込んだ冬瓜が入った絶品チキンスープを汗をかきながら掻き込むのがとても幸せでした。

今日Facebookの思い出のところに出てきたのがこのカオマンガイの写真でした。
去年わざわざその中国大使館の裏まで食べに行きました。
思い出したからレシピを書いておきます。

カオマンガイ
材料
鶏もも肉 1枚(ももはプリッとできて良い)
米 1.5-2合(炊飯器のリミットより1合少なめで)
中華スープの素 小さじ1.5
タレの材料
 ナンプラー(醤油でもok)   大さじ2
 みそ 小さじ1
 みりん 小さじ2
 にんにく 半かけくらい
 ゴマやパクチー 適量

作り方
米を研ぎ、炊飯器にセットする。
中華スープの素と塩を1つまみ入れ、水を規定の分量まで入れて軽く混ぜる。
その上にチキンをセットし、炊飯スイッチを押す。
米を炊いてる間にタレの材料を混ぜてタレを作る。
ご飯が炊けて蒸らしたら完成です!

本格的に作りたい場合は、鶏肉を弱火でじっくり煮込み、その煮汁に生姜と塩を少し加えてで米を炊きましょう。

写真はカオマンガイがうまいと評判の、バンコクのホテルのものです。
お値段は屋台の何倍もしますが、チキンがしっっとりしていてとても美味しかった。。

この屋台のカオマンガイの場所と、高級カオマンガイレストランの場所はこちらのブログに載せました。
行けるようになったら是非行ってみてください!
このコロナ騒ぎでいろんなものを作るため、血迷って大きいサイズのナンプラーとか買った人がいるかと思います。
肉を漬け込むのに使ったら、安い肉は美味しくなるし、ナンプラーは減るし、一石二鳥です!
ナンプラーの瓶の奥底に結晶ができるまでに使いましょう!

肉の漬け込みだれ
材料(鶏モモ肉2枚ぶんくらい)
ナンプラー 肉がひたひたになるくらい(お玉1杯半くらい)
すりおろしにんにく ひとかけぶん
すりおろした生姜 にんにくと同量
みりん 大さじ1
お好みで一味唐辛子
作り方
肉と材料をジップロックに入れ、冷蔵庫で最低3時間くらい寝かせる。
一晩くらい置いてもいい。
焼く時は、まず漬け汁を入れずに肉だけ焼き、両面焼き目がついたらタレを流し入れて軽く煮込む感じ。
すると白米もビールも止まらない何かが出来上がります!

More and more new big buildings are being built in Bangkok.
There is no more messy Bangkok I have seen when I visited here first time.
Luxury hotels and shopping malls keeps on increasing, girls became really fashionable, there's no big difference to Tokyo.

And finally the biggest shopping mall in Bangkok has been created.
This is ICONSIAM.

Take a free boat to cross Chaopraya river from the peer nearby BTS Sapantaksin station.

There you will find a free shuttle boat to ICONSIAM, with the sign saying ICONSIAM.
It was extremely crouded when the holiday season.

In the underground floor of ICONSIAM, you can find Thai traditional street foods.
If you care food safety, it is one way to taste nice authentic Thai traditional food.


This mall is created by Takashimaya, which is one of the biggest department store in Japan.
You can also find some drugstores, cosmetic store, and fancy stores all from Japan and catch the latest trend in Japan.


The most popular bag shop for foreigner, NARAYA, opened a cafe in here.

This is not only a shopping mall, they have free culture demonstration area for tourist.
It's enjoyable not only for locals, but also foreigners, it's literally an Icon.

I am back to Bangkok from Phimai.
In Bangkok, basically the water fighting are a is restricted, Khaosan, Silom, and Siam.
In Siam area, there are 3 areas, one in Siam Square, and 2 others are nearby Isetan department store.
For Khaosan, the water fight is restricted, because of the new king's parade.

In rural area, people are grabbing somebody to throw some powder and water.
But in Bangkok festival area, it is prohibited to touch people and to use the powder kind of things.
Eventhough they have the festival area, it doesn't mean people are not enjoying water fight on the street.
When I was taking minibus without window, a fire truck spread water and I was completely wet.

On 14th of April, I walked 5min from BTS Siam station, reached to Siam square.
Better to ware half pants to avoid extra body check at the entrance.
And get wet.

水がなくなったら所々にある給水スポットで水を足します。
サイアムスクエアは無料ですが、シーロムは有料だとか。

Several concerts by famous singers are going on.
When it comes to the song's hook part, usually fire is used to express the excitement, but of course water is used instead. 
The band I saw was caller "Instinct", they played really good rock cover of some famous Japanese girl-band music in Thai.

Next day I visited Central world area nearby Siam Square.
This place also had some concerts, and also DJ musics.

In Phimai, rural area in Thailand, the temperature goes up to 40c.
In Japan usually temperature is much higher in city area because of less nature, but Thailand is the opposite.
Surprising thing is, they don't have air conditioner in each room.
In that way it is not surprising that they spread water on themselves.

Everybody aimed with water guns, not only young people, get onto trucks with barrels filled with water.
This kind of "barrel trucks" are prohibited in Bangkok, since it may cause traffic jam.
Somebody starts to play a music, everybody starts to dance.
Maybe whole country is dancing.

They use the water from the barrel and spread it around to "fight" with others .
I'm uploading the movie later!

Flew 6 hours from Tokyo to Bangkok, met my friends at the airport and she drove me to her home town Phimai.
Phimai is usually 3 hours away (by car) from Bangkok, has a big ruin from Khmer empire, every November they have historical festival.
I visited here when I was 17, for my highschool trip.
I visited a high school in Phimai, and stayed in a local student's house.
This is how I met my friend.

This time, it is right before the festival, heavy traffic jam took us around 9 hours to drive there.

Now I am back to Phimai for Songklan festival.
On 6 am, me and my friend went out to buy some offerings to monks to 7-11.
For offering, anything can be fine except for alcohol.
We bought some instant noodles, snacks, juice, rice and so on.
In the region nearby Laos, they give some sticky rice instead of plane rice.
For me it was surprising to see those "offering pack" in 7-11!
IMG_0447

There are big offering celemony, since Songklan is originally the birthday of Buddha.
People take off shoes when offering, to show respect to the monks.
As a "reward" of offering, the monks chant.
For the chant, people say "saatu" instead of saying "thank you".

This is how the offering celemony takes place.
People are displaying a lot of stuff onto the desks.
The more monks coming, more offerings are displayed.
IMG_0454

I am trying this offering.
The monk looks like "oh it's already full"
IMG_0551

When monk's bowl became full, they put the offerings into a big bag.
If those food is too much, the temple offer to homeless people, never waste them.
IMG_0458

Little monks.
This is summer vacation for them, since boys must be a monk at least once in a lifetime, the best time to go to be a little monk.
IMG_0463

So much offerings.
IMG_0466

In this offering celemony, splashing has not happening yet.
People once go home to prepare for the "fight".
