Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant: Your food will be send by a boat, if you sit far enough πŸ˜‰

Food. There is nothing that you can say much about it until you start to dig in. Thai food especially, there is a high expectation between our family adds up with the ambience of Veg Fish Farm Thai Restaurant, it is something valuable. Back to square one, what about the food? How much was it? What should I order? Let's break it down here together!

Love the environment of this restaurant!
The power of viral is a love-hate relationship for me, and most of the restaurant that I visit is a disappointment. From that, I learned to put my expectation low and go along with it. But, there are a lot of positive rather than negative about this restaurant such as:-

  1. Huge parking space.
  2. Fresh ingredients as the vegetables are grown in a safe, responsible and pesticide free environment.
  3. Caution: They serve alcohol.
  4. All of their dishes are pork-free (eat at your own risk if you are unsure), delicately prepared and cooked by their experienced Thai chefs.
  5. From appetisers to dessert, they have it all. Check out the menu here.
  6. If you live in Ampang, this is so near your place!

WHAT DO WE THINK?

I have tried a few good Thai restaurants, some I shared it here on my blog, some I keep it as a secret to avoid changes in the food quality.  But, this restaurant is something exciting, the concept, partition and I would say very systematic. Just make sure to check your order to avoid long waiting!

The boat ride makes it very interesting even my nephew couldn't get off his and her mind, and I think the further you sit the higher chance you get to experience the boat-waiter. 

Regarding the food, I would recommend you to order the Squid Thai Salad (it's delicious) we even requested it for a second time. Mango Coconut Milk is a must for dessert, Coconut to cleanse your palate, Belacan Lady Finger for some fibre and Talapia Thai Steamed With Lime for a source of protein.

Why didn't I put Tomyam on the list? Because for me is not that kaw that I expected as it cooked less spicy (my dad request due to health). 

Overall, it was a great experience and the best weekend getaway with my family. It's always true that food brings people together!

16 Things that I Do in Seoul, Korea! I'm so sad this has come to an end~

My final take on Korea post is coming to an end, and it was fun to discover Busan, Jeju and Seoul for a whole week. I'm pretty sure I will go back and dig dipper! Just let me know which are that I should dig up next in the comment down below. πŸ˜†

01. EID μ΄λ“œ Halal Korean Food πŸ₯˜

Right after we put our bag at our Airbnb, we are only craving for food! From Yeoshinnae to Itaewon, we get to discover authentic Korean food at Eid. By the way, Eid has been serving their homemade food to Muslim since 2014 (excellent!). 

The time that we went to Korea is during summer transition to autumn, so I ordered some Samgyetang to cool down and Bulgogi for some meaty meal. 

As you all might now Itaewon is a Muslim community hub, so this little cosy restaurant is located near Seoul Central Mosque, and it's pretty easy to look out for Halal food here.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Eid Halal Korean Food
πŸ“ 67 Usadan-ro, 10-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul, South Korea.
πŸ•° Open Tuesday - Sunday (11.30 - 21.00), Closed on Monday.

02. Namsan Seoul Tower (λ‚¨μ‚°μ„œμšΈνƒ€μ›Œ)  πŸ’Έ 

There was an interesting story I want to tell you about my journey to Namsan Tower, we walk from the beginning to the top of the tower. I won't lie that it is very tiring, and I personally felt dumb and half regret of that decision. Why half disappointment? Because the view all the way up there are just remarkable plus it's indeed calming and cold to walk. 

I felt like Namsan Tower is a must visit even you didn't go up to the observatory. We apparently didn't do that, and we just walk around the tower to see the city view and the love locks. In the end, we took the bus from the tower to Myeongdong station.

03. Myeong-dong (λͺ…동) πŸ’Έ 

A place that we went for three night when we visit Seoul. I love this street, not just because of all the beauty shop around here, because of the food and a very calm nightlife.

It's inevitable to shop around here - clothes, Banana Uyu and K-pop merchandises. Oh my oh my, Myeongdong underground station is heaven for K-pop merchandise! I bought a Gong Yoo calendar, ONE, Winner and South Club album! For beauty, I can't list all of them (because it's a lot), but it's fun to shop and open order to others as well.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Myeong-dong Station.
πŸ“ Myeongdong-gil, Jung-gu, Seoul.
πŸ•° Open all year round.
πŸ’Έ Can't list it because I don't want to remember the damage that I have done.

04. Bukchon Hanok Village (λΆμ΄Œν•œμ˜₯λ§ˆμ„) πŸ“Έ 

'Hanok' - a home to traditional houses and still a housing area to lots of local. There is a sign that showed while you walking like 'This is a residential area. Please talk quietly', and we need to respect that.

It will take almost three hours to walk around the area, but I make it simple as I can as I know what to do or visit there: food - Grandhand - watch people in hanbok. So, first, we get our lunch at ν•­κΈˆμ•Œμ‹λ‹Ή (eat at your own risk, please check with Halal Korea for more information). It's a bit hidden at the alley, but I'm pretty sure you can spot it if you are from the station and saw this picture. 

At Grandhand, my mom bought me a multi-perfume called 'Marine Vacth' - a mixture of pear, mandarin, rose, lily and toffee. Clearly, I still have it with me, and the smell is just like a fresh and clean sea breeze. Regarding the hanbok, there are tons of rent shop of the traditional Korea clothes, if you want to try you may, but scroll more, and you will spot a tip for free hanbok.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ Bukchon Hanok Village
πŸ“ 37, Gyedong-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul.
πŸ•° Open all year round.

05. National Folk Museum of Korea (ꡭ립민속박물관)πŸ“Έ 

For me, this is a place to rest after walking through a mountain of Bukchon Hanok Village. There is a lot of people since it's also located beside Gyeongbokgung Palace and it's a new discovery. 

I visit the museum out of curiosity. The National Folk Museum of Korea has three permanent exhibitions and two special exhibitions as well as a library, souvenir shop, and other subsidiary facilities.

INFORMATION:
β„Ή️ National Folk Museum of Korea.
πŸ“ 37, Samcheong-ro, Jongno-gu, Seoul.
πŸ•° Operating hours may vary.
πŸ’Έ Free to the museum, the fee may vary for some of the spots.

06. Gyeongbokgung Palace (경볡ꢁ) πŸ“Έ 

If you are just out from the museum, go straight to Gyeongbokgung Palace. Especially if you are there from 10:00 to 14:00 except on Tuesdays because you will witness royal guard ceremonies, something that you cannot miss!

Another thing to take note is if you want to go inside of the palace you need to pay the entrance fee but, there is a trick, visit them during last Wednesday every month, and you will get free admission since it's their culture day!

07. K-Style Hub (μΌ€μ΄μŠ€νƒ€μΌν—ˆλΈŒ) πŸ“Έ 

This hub is more than just an information centre, and this is where you can experience hanbok once in your lifetime for free. Go straight to level 5 and start to immerse yourself in their traditional clothes. The best part is you can experience the hanbok outside of the hub for one hour after you submit your ID. 

Love the experience, tons of choice to choose from, and it's astonishing to see the staff put it on to us. After hanbok, it's time to meet one of my favourite Korean band, Big Bang, virtually of course!

08. Cheonggyecheon Stream (μ²­κ³„μ²œ) πŸ“Έ 

A sun just shining at the stream when I walk along it. The hot weather than run through me this morning was forgotten because the stream cooling me down! There is a meaning about the Narae Bridge as it represents a butterfly in flight, and Gwanggyo Bridge, symbolising a harmony of the past and future.

The stream is near K-Style Hub and other attraction as well like Deoksugung Palace, Seoul Palace, the Sejong Center, Insa-dong Street, Changdeokgung Palace, and Channggyeonggung Palace.

Recommended to take a break in the middle of the city and just enjoy the cold water while dipping your foot inside the stream.
