During our order, I asked the young waitress (probably secondary or college girl age) what is laoli in this Thai Nam-pric Baked Potatoes. She shrugged with smile, “Er.. I don’t know..” Sensing she didn’t know what to do next, I asked and pointed to the back where the other staffs were standing, “Can you ask?”
After awhile, she came back and pointed to the yellowish sauce, “This is laoli.” OK.. I ordered that, not know what it is exactly… was in experimental mood.
The magazines there were limited. Men’s fashion, architecture and 2007 female fashion magazines mixed with Time. All old and dog-eared.
Then my Miss Coco Lady (Belgian Dark Chocolate Frappe) came. In plastic cup. Somehow it just cheapened the experience. It used to come in glass. On top was vanilla ice cream with shaves of dark chocolate. It was bittersweet :) Took awhile for the ice cream to melt.
After a few sips and 1/2 of 1st magazine, the waitress came back and told us that the lavoli sauce finished already. Can change with the Thai chili sauce? OK lerr.
Thai Nam-pric Baked Potatoes came in laoli sauce (white yellow-ish) and beef or prawn, parsley leave at the side. The baked potato was really the size of a big fist. It was soft but on itself, just a bit sweet of the potato kind. I had told the waitress that I didn’t want any beef but I think there is still some beef floss. Usually beef is softer and more tender than chicken but this tasted harder than chicken.. The prawns were really small, between the size of 20 to 10 cents. They were ok… just not as big as the picture illustrated in the menu. Of course, restaurants are smart enough to put * Pictures for illustration only and actual dish may vary so that you can’t sue them for misrepresentation :p
Mom said the Chili sauce is spicy and very watery. After awhile, it got less spicy and we poured almost all of it onto the baked potato.
If you are not into or cannot eat beef, this is not for you unless they replace the beef with chicken or nothing for you. They definately would not replace it with more expensive prawn :)
