A bit bored with chinese food, so for today's dinner I made fish cake, another dish from Thailand. A bit different compared fish cake from Singapore. But it tasted good though, especially if you eat it with the cucumber relish. I added tomato diced into the relish, so it tasted fresh even more (I forgot to add the ground roasted peanut).
Ok....do not wait too long time, better you try this recipe then let me know your opinion for this food :).
