Hello food lovers! Back to the topic, it is my food trip in both Bangkok and Korea and today I'm going to share a popular seafood restaurant that we spotted during my trip to Bangkok. To be honest, I don't usually go for a food trip except with a bunch of friends or family because it's much cheaper compare with just 2-3 person and with more friends, you can try more food and ORDER MORE! It was so fun because I ate a lot of SEAFOOD!! What better than seafood with cheaper price and bigger portion than our own country! OMG
Okay, for your information (as I mentioned earlier on the Chocolate Vile post) it's best to take taxi as your main transportation when you go with a group of people (6-8 persons) because it's more worth and quite reasonable for you to take taxi there. It's less than RM10 per person and you don't have to worry much on that but there are only one thing that I'm not very satisfied... It's their traffic condition. Even a 5km journey can take you more than 20 mins if the traffic condition was super busy and terrible. We planned to visit Chinatown earlier on the second day of our trip because I'm craving for seafood seriously!
So we wakeup quite early and visited some place in Bangkok which I will cover it on my next Bangkok Itinerary post. After that we reach Chinatown and it was quite scary with the amount of people there. So crowded during this CNY and I swear no more trip to Bangkok during CNY next time. Traffic was terrible , super jam and lots of tourist bus. The taxi driver refuse to fetch us straight to the place we wanted so we have to stop at a place and walk by ourself + refer to the map that we print out before our trip.
We don't have internet access during the whole trip except in our Hotel and we decided to ask people around us. It's so fun because we found that most of the people in Chinatown actually speaks and understand Mandarin. (Of course man! It's CHINATOWN) lol After 25 mins of searching and asking, we reached this seafood restaurant. I was so shocked because not as crowded as they mention and maybe it's still early because that time we reached there was around 5.30pm. So lucky we able to get a proper seat and table outdoor without waiting and standing for 1 hour!
Their opening hour was 6pm onward but have no idea why there are still full inside the whole indoor restaurant. We have no choice but feel blessed even we seat at outdoor. lol Maybe CNY they open earlier I guess? Next, we just sit down and looking at our menu and guess what!! People start queuing beside our table lol.
CROWDED AFTER 6.15pm like that! The waiting line was super duper long and I feel extra lucky for having a proper seat here again. HAHAHAHAHA Then everyone just start looking at each other's table and see what food we order and some even come to ask whether can they share table with us! LOL So funny
I'm not sure the name of the what we order because we just randomly point it out and order what we think it's nice. Honestly, the grilled crab with eggs really good and the fish we ordered taste so fresh too. OMG REALLY QUITE NICE!! Crab & Fish = recommended!
#2 Crab crab!!
#3 This is the fish that taste sooooooo good and fresh one!
#8 Best tomyam ever! Not very spicy so I can enjoy this to the max xD
#9 Their fish really so fresh and yummy, so end up we order another dish again!
So we ordered total 9-10 dishes (I didn't take photo for one last dish because I really don't have extra clean hand to take my camera out and capture it lol) and 5-6 coconut as our drink! Best seafood companion ever! HAHAHAHAHA I took 3 bowl of rice and the crab small really quite small so it's better if you order the large one or medium if you wish to have more meat and bigger portion for yourself lol.
After all, it cost us only RM42-48 per person (total 8 person). Okay, it's really super reasonable and I guess it's the only place i willing to spend and eat non-stop for seafood. Anyway, we never expect this can be so reasonable and cheap & no wonder so popular in Bangkok. Not over rated and so far from our personal experience it's pretty good except you have to be extra patient when calling the waitress or add any extra order / rice to your table. It's so hard to reach them because everyone was so busy serving their table and you have to stand up or shout out loud so that they hear you lol. Like pasar malam like that! AHAHAHAHA Rice serve in a big bowl portion, so you can just estimate whether you need to order extra rice or not.
Personally, I will wish to come here again for second time if I'm in Bangkok again. Will plan for another food trip again next year and I will come back to you again TK Seafood! HAHAHAHA So, feel free to add this as one of your must-go list in Bangkok if you are seafood lover!!!
