She Who Sells Squid along the Streets

Paa Meuk is my favourite auntie for grilled squid (plaa-meuk yaang).

She sells the most sensational squid: fresh, tender, succulent, chewy…

But don’t let her friendly, toothy smile fool you! If you don’t tell her to go easy on her homemade chilli concoction, she’ll pour a generous portion over your beloved tentacled friend. No doubt, I always bite into her mouthwatering dish with zest, but the very next moment I know, I’ll be looking for the nearest fire hydrant to douse my fiery tongue.
