Thai Restaurant Menu – 02

We had some friends from the UK visiting today. We took them out to a nearby seafood restaurant called Sompong which is on Srinakarin Road. It is less than 10 minutes away by car. The last meal I wrote about at Paknam Seafood worked out at about 200 baht per person including beer. That was about US$5 each. What do you reckon this meal cost? The six dishes we ordered were:

ต้มยำกุ้ง – tom yam gung
lemon grass soup with prawns

ห่อหมกปู – hor mok poo
crab curry in a banana cup

ต้มข่ากุ้ง – tom khaa gung
chicken coconut soup

ปลากะพงอบเกลือ – bplaa gra-pong aob gleua
steamed fish

กุ้งชุบแป้งทอด – goong choob bpaeng tort
fried shrimp

ข้าวผัดปู – khao put poo
Fried rice with crab

Normally when there are four people, you would order about five dishes. This doesn’t include the rice but in this case, as it was fried rice I have counted it as a dish. We all drank beer. The total price was just under 1,200 baht, which is about US$7.50 each. Expensive for me, but for most Westerners that would be considered cheap.
