    Street Vendors & Hawkers: Food - Fried Crabs etc...

    by chiabh Written May 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many stalls selling deep fried chicken, crabs and other delicacies... as well as limited choice of Chinese dim sum... Some of these stalls are actually operated by Muslims and hence the food are (presumbly) halal...

    Favorite Dish: The fried crab, especially the small one are very tastely and crunchy... but beware, while it is nice to eat, it will raise your uric acid level very high... i eat some once (not during this visit to Hatyai), and then was not able to walk the next day due to the high uric acid ending with having my leg joints badly swollen...

    The stall outside Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel..

    Street Vendors & Hawkers: Dessert - Khao Neow Mamuang

    by chiabh Updated May 21, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Khao Neow Mamuang is a Thai dessert... It is actually Thai sweet sticky rice with ripe mango... It taste best with santan (coconut milk) toppings which is provided separately... Just add some to the dessert when you want to eat... As mango tends to go rancid easily, it is best eaten when prepared... It is to be noted that Southern Thailand produces some of the best mango in the kingdom...

    There is a stall just outside the Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel that sells this delicious dessert..

    Favorite Dish: A full portion of the sweet sticky rice and an entire medium size mango cost only 20 baht... The vendor will only slice the mango at the time of purchase to ensure its freshness...

    a hawker stall selling the delicacy...

    Street Vendors & Hawkers: Fried Meat & Seafood...

    If you like fried food, then Hat Yai really offers a lot!!!! There are plenty of street hawkers selling the fried food like fried chicken, seafood, sausage, banana, etc... i think this is the local 'FAST FOOD', except that you need to buy drink at another stall.
    I didn't try any because i was really full the whole time i was in Hat Yai... so bad...

    Feeling thirsty while shopping in Hat Yai Street? Well i went for their local dessert twice from the hawkers all a long the road in front of Lee Garden Plaza at the night time. They have all kind of nuts and other things as you can see from the photo below. If you like bird nest, then you can eat it for only 100Baht.

    Street Vendors & Hawkers: Banana Toast Satay??

    Have you ever hear of banana toast? well this was my first time seeing it in a satay-style way. They actually toast the banana slices on a stick. Then they squeeze it and dip into a specially made sauce. It cost 10 Bath for 4 sticks.
    I don't have a clear pic, except my gf eating it.... hahahah....

    Street Vendors & Hawkers: Pork Satay

    Actually i don't really know whether this is a pork satay or not. I just read about it in VT before i went to Hat Yai. Then i suspected it was pork satay from the way and the color of the meat look.
    Satay is actually a barbeque-style meat cooking. I never tried pork satay before in Malaysia. There were a lot of this pork satay over that area and it cost only 3 Baht per stick. Eat as many as you like!!!!

    Street Vendors & Hawkers: Nice and Cheap!

    by PS_Lee81 Written Nov 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a local + eastern style restaurant
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    I knew about this restaurant after asking the person working in the Konsortium travel agent. This place offers a wide variety of fresh food to be selected. They got all the meat and vege displayed so that people can see and select them if they wanted to.
    Since the seller don't know how to speak English or Chinese, so i just pointed to what i wanted to eat, and gave some sign language on what exactly i wanted. They even got my fish around a few time, asking how i wanted it to be cooked... finally another customer who were able to speak Chinese and Thai help me on that.

    Favorite Dish: I like the FISH very much because it was really really FRESH!
    I also ate the Thai TOM YAM.... yummy.... but it is a bit hot!
    The most important thing is that it was not expensive. i spent about 370 Baht for everything.

    Overview of the shop Fresh meat and vege being displayed Sorry, forgot to take photo before i eat.... yummy

    Street vendors' food: Food galore

    by juliewong Written Nov 29, 2003

    As dusk falls, many vendors were seen setting up their food stalls & selling a variety of food. We had a hearty supper meal of grilled prawns & squids, glutinous rice with fresh mango slices, barbeque chicken wings, birds nests for dessert and bowls of noodles in soup. Boy, I could go for another bowl of dessert.

    If you are into trying very localized food stalls, where else better than to eat among the locals at the roadside stalls? Check out the street vendors in front of Lee Gardens Hotel.

    Favorite Dish: Duck noodle soup
