Thai Restaurant Menu – 03

I went out to eat at one of our local seafood restaurants tonight with some friends. I took the camera along so that I could show you what you missed! The only dish I didn’t take a picture of was the fish as we ate that last time. The or-suan dish is interesting – it is like the hoi tod that I gave you the recipe for not long ago. However, this one is about ten times more expensive as it also has crab and shrimp. The meal we had today was vegetarian so the green curry had fish balls instead of chicken. Our other option was shrimp.

ทอดมันกุ้ง – tod mun goong
Prawn cakes

ออส่วน – or-suan
Fried mussels, shrimp and crab in omlette

แกงเขียวหวานลูกชิ้นปลากราย – gang keow waan look-chin blaa grai
Green curry with fishballs

กุ้งชุบแป้งทอด – goong choop baeng tod
Fried Shrimp

This five dish meal, which included rice and two large bottles of Singha Beer cost about 180 baht each. That is about US$4.50 each. Not too bad. As I mentioned before, at restaurants like this, you usually end up paying about 200 baht each. We were thinking about going for the crab curry which is really nice. But, the starting price was 800 baht! To put this in perspective for newbies, the pad thai meal I had by the side of the road last night cost only 20 baht. It is nice going to the restaurants, but I hope you can see why I don’t go too often.
