Time to eat the food we bought at the Or To Kor Market
Eating food that had been purchased at the Or Tor Kor market was just another way of mixing up the tour and providing us with another authentic food experience. It was here that I got to try many different varieties of Thai food for the first time, including the dreaded durian. I was also quite surprised at the level of Portuguese influence in Thai food, especially desserts, where eggs and custards are just as prolific as pandan, coconut milk, and sweet sticky rice.
Cast your eyes over the following goodies we had to eat. It really was a sumptuous buffet.
Crispy pork belly is good whenever you can get it and this dish didn’t disappoint. The only problem was we had to share 🙂
Some of the amazing desserts we got to try.
Century eggs are distinctive is both flavour and look and would not be everyone’s cup of tea. These eggs are cured in a mixture of ingredients that turns the yolk to green and with the accompanying smell of a science lab. The outer side of the egg white turns brown.

Acland and Dan must have been buying food when we weren’t looking as the dishes just kept on coming.
