Thai Pork Stew and Unique Comfort Foods at Jiew Look Shin Pla Yoawarat (ข้าวพระรามลงสรง)
After residing in Thailand and constantly eating Thai food, every now and then it’s nice to find unique dishes you’ve never heard of before.
That was case at Jiew Look Shin Pla Yoawarat (จิวลูกชิ้นปลาเยาวราช) restaurant, and that’s precisely why we headed over to Talad Sriyan market one day to EAT!
Pronounce “stew” as a normal English word, and no one will understand you.
Instead, you’ve got to pronounce it the Thai way: sa-tew and make it linger for little bit at the end.
Jiew Look Shin Pla Yoawarat (จิวลูกชิ้นปลาเยาวราช) is well known for their Pork Stew over Rice (Khao Sa-tew Moo Toon ข้าวสตูหมูตุ๋น).
Pieces of potato, carrots, and tender chunks of pork were slow cooked for hours to prepare the stew. It was very Western tasting, yet at the same time I could tell it was Thai, maybe because it was just a tad sweet.
The meaty flavor of the gravy was wonderful, and I also liked the black pepper sprinkle and cilantro on top.
Another dish we sampled was the Yellow Egg Noodles in Gravy with Chicken and Mushrooms (Ba Mee Radna Gai Het Hom บะหมี่ราดหน้าไก่เห็ดหอม), a variation of the common Thai radna noodles.
Despite its not overly attractive appearance, it was actually quite nice. The egg noodles were soft and the gravy was basically just thickened stock including big chunks of chicken and fragrant mushrooms. The noodles went with the gravy remarkably well.
But the dish of the meal was their very own unique creation known as Khao Pra Ram Lum Song (ข้าวพระรามลงสรง).
It tasted pretty much like a pork satay (moo satay) over rice that was lathered in peanut sauce.
I don’t think the pork was anything special, but it was the lovely rich peanut gravy poured on top, along with little condiments of sliced chillies, prik pao roasted chili sauce, and steamed morning glory (pak bung), that made it really good.
All three dishes weren’t overly strong in flavor, yet they were all comforting style dishes.
Here’s a video of the meal and all the dishes!
