One of a food I miss alot is Tomyum Fried Rice is one of a famous Thai Street food  must have but donkey years ago that I ate during high school days in a cafe – Strawberry Cafe in 1-stop Penang. They indeed has one of the best fried rice but no longer in operation. Whenver we visit Cyberjack, for Red Alert, Warcraft or Counter strike, Tomyum Fried rice with sunny side up in that cafe is a must. This round I just chin chai cook at home, see can emulate something like that or not. Results: 80%!

During this lock down period, do on and off crave for certain things. Well some of the recipe I chin Chai cook and most of my recipe is my first time doing it. So alot of ingredient and cooking time is agak agak.

Video is shows how to cook and prep but in ASMR cooking version.

Pack with hint of lemongrass, onion is just nice and tomyum paste has the sourish and mild spicy it needed.
