Some eats from the food court at Platinum Mall

Bangkok, Platinum Mall food court, khao kha moo

Here're some pork with rice from level 6 at Platinum Mall (222 Petchaburi Road, Ratchathevee, Bangkok 10400).

The above was a khao kha moo that came with generous bits braised in collegen, fats and tender meat from pork trotters (along with bits of bone) in a light and tasty umami sauce. This was delicious and the accompanying fish sauce with small sliced green chilli couldn't have been better pairing for an additional kick of flavors, though one must be generally cautious of the heat they pack.

Below was something that was described as red pork and I guess it was just how Thailand attempts char siew. This rendition on rice wasn't so impressive and had meat that tasted nothing like those I've previously tried at Otoko market.

Bird's nest was sold as well, but it wasn't flavored with pandan so it tasted a little unusual. I'm not sure much of it is real though since it wasn't expensive.
