Sawadee Ka! Today is our 1st day in Krabi for the Raya break. After checking into our hotel we went around to explore the surrounding area and decided to have our meal at this restaurant that boasts to be the 1st and oldest in the Ao Nang district. It also claimed that their chef, Mrs. Phaichat was formerly from the world-famous Sondeang Thai Restaurant in Bangkok and Chao Praya, the oldest and most famous in L.A., California! With all these claims, we can’t resist but told ourselves that we MUST give it a try!
Phad Thai @ 90THB (RM 9.00) ~ Wifey & I ordered this famous & well-known fried thin noodle (Thai style char koay teow) that comes with vege, beansprouts, egg and crabmeat. Smashed nuts and a slice of lime to mix with this dish if one prefers. Chili flakes are available too for the additional ummph! We found the texture of the thin noodle a little rubbery otherwise the taste was pretty ok. Tasted better ones back home. A 4/10!
Tom Yam Seafood @ 100THB (RM 10.00) ~ Sour & spicy soup with lemon grass, herbs and generous amount of seafood such as squids, mid size prawns, white buttom mushrooms, mussles and fish slices. Good & tasty but not spicy enough fo us! A 7/10!
The bill came to 380THB (RM 38.00) which is relatively reasonable, except for that bottle of mineral water! The setup was comfy but please remember to spray on some mosquito repellant liquid before entering. We were attacked by blood thirsty mozzies throughout the meal! This is also a non-smoking restaurant and only uses fans! Guess it’s cater more to the caucasians (referred to as “Farang” by Thais) than the Asians as most of them doesn’t mind the hot & humid weather! Will I come back? Well, I’ve been here, tasted it and seriously, there’s nothing much to shout about. I should check out others instead!
