Stopped at Bang Saen on the way back to Bangkok. Strolled around the main beachfront in town. It was completely cluttered with beach chairs and umbrellas. Full of garbage gathered in piles dotting the sides. Rather unsightly. Glad we went further for a better beach experience.
Went into Dee Prom Restaurant (ดีพร้อม) for a bite. We had a heavy breakfast, and simply wanted light bites. Hahahah. It was light enough but when you order an additional pot of steamed white rice to go with these food, they aren't that 'light'. Easy bites of my favorite stir-fried lotus stems, marinated mackerel which are like giant sardines, and Taipei-style oyster omelette with lots of potato starch. But yes, one lunch that was truly 'light'. Like, finally.
There was a specific item I wanted to eat but I hadn't come across it all week after the first two meals at the friends' homes in Bangkok- นำ้พริกกะปิ (naam prik kapi). It's a dip of fermented shrimp paste, fish sauce and roasted chillies. It always comes with raw or blanched vegetables. Love it! At Dee Prom, we ordered นำ้พริกกุ้งสด (naam prik kung sot), the version with chunks of shrimp either dried or fresh. Spicy! Hurrah!
