What is Hoy Tod?
Hoy Tod is a popular Thai dish that is served in many local restaurants. The dish consists of a tasty omelette with mussels, oysters, or both and it’s extremely greasy but oh-so-good. There are two versions of Hoy Tod cooked with different types of batter, a crispy-fried version (Hoy Tod) and a spongier version which is always cooked with oysters (Or Suan). Hoy Tod is prepared with bean sprouts and goes well with chilli sauce. To start with, the oysters and mussels are grilled and then fried up with yummy egg and bean sprouts. They say that men like their omelettes spongy and gooey (Or Suan) while women prefer the crispy version (Hoy Tod). However, we think this is just a matter of personal taste.
