Visiting a Thai Restaurant 05

Late this afternoon I went back to the row of restaurants along the Gulf of Thailand in Samut Prakan (click here for previous blog). The restaurant I visited this time was called Sailom Bangpoo. I was impressed with both the food and service at these two restaurants. If you live in Samut Prakan and would like to visit these restaurants then just head out towards Ancient City along Sukhumwit Road. The turning for Bangsaen 2 is on the right not long after the Standing Buddha. You will need to go beyond and do a u-turn. Soi 71 is just after the Shell petrol station. You can also go down Soi 70 to visit neighbouring restaurants.

Ӽ - som dtam pon-la-maai
Papaya salad with fruit (35 baht)

This is, of course, the famous som tam which is popular with many foreigners. However, this version comes with mixed fruit. I should have this one more often as I liked it.

駼Ѵ - goong pat pong ga ree
Fried shrimp with curry powder (120 baht)

This is now the fourth version of this curry I have had. The most expensive is with crab. These can cost up to 800 baht even though there never seems to be much meat. However, the other week I had a new version which is a crab with a soft shell. On that one you can eat everything. The other version I had was the cheapest one as it was cooked with chicken. Today I had a shrimp version. Still good. If you get a chance, order this curry. But, don't forget, the most expensive is not always the best.

駡ͧ - goong gra-beuang
Shrimp in hard batter (80 baht)

This is an interesting starter (though as usual it came towards the end). It is minced shrimp fried in flour. It is soft like pitta bread and you dip it in a sweet sauce. Interesting though maybe a little expensive here for what you are getting. I would buy this one again only if the price was cheaper.

Ѵᵡ - pat bpo dtaek haeng
Spicy stir-fried seafood (120 baht)

The final one in our meal today wasn't my choice. I think I have mentioned before that I am not that keen on seafood. (Apart from the above of course). However, other people would like it.

With two bottles of beer, that meal came to 550 baht. Maybe a little on the expensive side but we did have four dishes. For two of us, we shoud have gone for three dishes. This was a good restaurant with fast and efficient service. And, like Rabieng Ta-le the other week, it had a fine sea breeze and a wonderful view of the setting sun. If you have the time and energy, you can walk quite far along the seafront. A great place to go at the end of the day.
