Savory Cake Is a Thing; This One's a Must for Fried-Chicken Fans
Unconventional? Sure. Delicious? Heck yeah.
(SPOT.ph) When you say cake, what likely comes to mind is the sweet, icing-coated kind that's served for dessert. But in Thailand, there's another kind of cake: the moo tod cake, a savory layered concoction with rice and other ingredients topped with fried pork. Samyan at The Grid Food Market has come up with their own version: meet the Gai Tod Cake, their take on the said trendy dish but topped with crisp, juicy pieces of Thai-style fried chicken!
The Gai Tod Cake (P890/seven inches) has layers of Thai-style fried chicken (a.k.a. marinated chicken with a light and crisp batter that's fried to a crisp), jasmine rice, green papaya salad, shrimp, peanuts, and other ingredients in the form of "cake" that you can share with friends and family. You also get a green chili sauce that ties all the flavors together. Be sure to get a bit of each ingredient in every bite, so you can savor its distinctly Thai combo of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy flavors with tons of crunch and crispness to boot!
Hungry yet? The Gai Tod Cake will be launching available for Wednesday and Saturday pickups starting November 21, but you can preorder your cake as early as now. Simply give them a call at 0917-707-7459, fill out their order form, visit The Grid Food Market's website, or send Samyan a message on Facebook or Instagram. You can also book a courier to get it delivered, though Samyan recommends booking a car to ensure the cake arrives in the ideal condition.
Samyan is a stall at The Grid Food Market that offers Thai eats. Give their Creamy Laksa with Shrimp a try, too—it's as silky on the tongue as it is full of flavor!
To go with the savory cake, we recommend having a sweet and creamy drink alongside—like Good Karma Bakery's bottled Mylk drinks. It comes in flavors like Korean Strawberry, Matcha, and Ube!
