I have always wondered, if pairing watermelon with fried rice, would be a delightful taste or a peculiar one. While the Gin Khao Special watermelon fried rice, or Khao Phat Dtaeng Moe, was generous in portion and seafood ingredients, it was a little strange to savour warm watermelon balls, which could also be an interesting sweet twist to savoury. No doubt the watermelon contributed further to the sweetness of this dish, with pork floss and cashew nuts, I guess I would stick to my pineapple fried rice. Note that the serving in a watermelon bowl is only applicable to 2 pax portion.

The Khao Phat Kaneng Khiew Wan, or signature fragrant rice stir-fried in chicken with special green curry, was contrastingly savoury. There was no lack of onion slices, eggs and some vegetables though chicken meat was slightly lesser, but the tossing of rice in green curry resulted in an overly-moist and mushy texture of the rice. Also, it would have been more delectable if the green curry flavour was stronger instead of being monotonous.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, I was even more motivated to check Gin Khao Bistro out for dining by the sea, despite the long travel!
