We have long heard about T&K Seafood @ Chinatown, Bangkok. Friends and families even rant and rave about T&K seafood that it is straight blasphemy. I finally made it there during a recent trip to Bangkok.

Taiwanese Pop Star Jay Chow spotted?

As we got in, it was astonishing to see the place packed to the brim.Tables and chairs were overflowing onto the street. The menu is very easy to navigate, with pictures and descriptions in English.

T&K seafood’s staffs are donning green coloured t-shirt while their competitor across the door can easily be recognized by their bright pink coloured t-shirt.

Cooking and grilling were done outdoor so we opted to sit inside the restaurant. However, most foreign tourists prefer an al fresco dining experience.

Thai Style Steamed Fish. This dish was very flavourful – sweet, sour, spicy at the same time. The fish was cooked just right, it’s flesh still soft and sweet.

Tom Yam Soup. The broth is nevertheless utterly delicious.  Lime juice and a sneaky dash of fish sauce gave it alot of kick. We were sweating like mad cow, but who cares when the broth is so delicious.

Stir Fried Morning Glory. It’s actually kangkung in Malaysia’s context. I like the crunchy stems and the gravy which went well with white rice.

Thai Style Curry Crab. It was my first time trying thai style curry crab and I found it to be delicious. The crabs were cooked with curry paste and a thick creamy egg white sauce. It is this sauce that gives this dish its distinct flavour.

Crab Meat Fried Rice. A good fried rice must also have the mystic “wok hei” and this one scores 10 out of 10.

The piece de resistance here is the grilled prawns (150 baht for small portion). It definitely lives up to its name! The prawn meat were so fresh and springy. We enjoy sucking the roe out of the prawn heads too. It was so good that we ordered a second serving!

T&K seafood is definitely a must go if you are around the Chinatown area. The place is packed with tourists but pricing is really reasonable and the food quality is superb. We paid about 1000 baht for 5 pax, and we ordered 6-7 dishes.

Post dinner, we walked around Chinatown to do some light shopping. We were too full to have desserts, eventhough Chinatown is famous for cheap bowls of bird’s nest (from 100 baht).

My mum insisted on doing some shopping at Lin Zhen Xiang 林真香’s flagship store. It is a heaven of Thailand’s snacks and tid bits!

The crunchy bak gua is one of the must buy food items here. It is very thin, light and crispy. Addictive stuff!

Deep Fried Worms – not for the faint hearted.

Pork Floss Rolls – my favourite.
