The only method to be sure is to pursue yourself. And exactly what better method to sample Thailand’s preferred meal than at the fantastic “Crab Night” seafood buffet promo at Streats Café on Rambuttri Road, beside Khao San. In addition to the best khao tom pla kimpo, the promo includes blue crab, tiger prawns and mussels along with an entire host of Thai and global meals and desserts.
Hia Wan Khao Tom Pla is right along Thanon Chan. All the seafood is lined up and rests on ice at the front of the dining establishment, where there’s also a shophouse, however all the tables are established on the pathway and in front of the neighbors organisation. This long-standing boiled rice and fish area is near Bangkok’s biggest fish market, and that’s where the owner sources components. The distinguishing element is the broth, made primarily from pork and fish bones for a sweet soup that features fresh seafood, rice and garlic chips.
