Food Trip Friday 037: Khmer yellow curry at ang bahaw...bow!



For some reason I wasn't really impressed at the curry my husband ordered at Hagar Restaurant several nights ago:

Seeing the unusual rice shape, I thought to myself, "ngiii, bahaw (cold, left-over rice)!" Di ba ganito ang itsura ng bahaw na naiwan sa kalan? Not that I dislike bahaw, or tutong (burnt rice crust), for that matter. In fact, ako ay laki sa bahaw (I grew up eating bahaw)! I was just surprised why a restaurant would serve rice in this manner,  but the husband assured me it's not bahaw.

Magkakasundo pala tayo sa Bahaw, ayoko rin kasi ng masyadong mainit ang kanin lalo na pa gmay sabaw ang ulam, kaya gusto ko talaga eh kanin lamig. :)
