Thai Camp @ Taman Paramount, PJ
Thai food is one of the most balance cuisine, it has a firm place in the hearts and mouths of Malaysians. It's never just sweet or just spicy, rather a balance of acidity, sweetness, aromatic and heat. Thai is not a monolithic culture and so as their cuisine which varies vastly from region to region and even from house to house. This humble small restaurant Thai Camp located in the neighbourhood of Taman Paramount has recently change their menu, focusing on serving more affordable ala carte meal known as "ahan chan diao" (single dish food).

Thai Champ Preserved Eggs, RM9.50Crispy outer layer of flavourful fried minced pork meat completely covered the filling of preserved egg which is dark brown in colour, translucent albumen that is rubbery in texture, with a hint of ammonia. The greenish/grey yolk packs a sulphuric punch, looks muddy and wet with a thick, creamy consistency and a mild, gel-textured egg that bears a faint taste of its mineral odor. It has an acquired taste but most Asian love it.

One of my favourite dish at Thai Camp.
