We went back to Chao Lay for the second time and sadly we were hugely unsatisfied. Perhaps we should have stuck to dishes which worked instead of trying new stuff.
Prawn cakes. They were actually not bad.
Cuttlefish salad. I was disappointed that it didn't have vermicelli. To make it worse the salad had not a hint of dressing. Even the fresh and nicely blanched cuttlefish did not save the dish.
Stir-fried beef with chili. I have no idea what cut the beef was but it tasted like shoe leather. Not only was it tough it was also very dry like beef jerky. I tried chewing a piece but had to give up as it hurt my jaws.
Fried noodles with seafood. We got the impression that the dish was just thrown together with a few pieces of seafood. The noodles were a little strange too and they tasted like instant noodles. Perhaps the chef was off that day?
