T&K Seafood, Chinatown, Bangkok

Chinatown in Bangkok is a sight not to be missed..
The colour, the sights, the sounds, the food and.. the pollution :p
And as you walk along the main road in Chinatown, you'll definitely see 2 very popular chinese 'restaurants' at a T-junction, one restaurant has it's staff dressed in red uniform while the other, in green uniform. We decided to have dinner at T&K Seafood.. Ordering was quite easy as the menu's also in english and had quite a number of food pictures too.

We had the famous grilled prawns that everyone orders.. Really succulent, sweet and juicy. The prawns flesh were springy and had absorb the smokey salty flavours, making this dish utterly lip smacking. Delicious.

Thai curry crab.. I had a wonderful version of this dish at a restaurant near Menam Chao Phraya, and was hoping that T&K's version would be good too. Oh well, I guess not. Their version was a tad too rich in milk and egg, so strong that it almost envelope the crab's sweetness.

We ordered Oyster omelette.. Served on a bed of beansprouts, this was really tasty. The oysters were plump and juicy, the egg omelette was crispy while the dough was moist and filled with chopped garlic and spring onions.
I wanted to have Vermicelli Crab.. Again, I have tried a fantastic version of that before, thought T&K should be able to prepare an equally delectable one. This was just mediocre to me though. Too sweet and lack of pork fats in this dish makes it rather unattractive to me.
We had some veggies too but I didn't take a picture of it.
Total bill was about THB990 (inclusive of rice and drinks)
T&K Seafood is located at 49-51 Phadung Dao Rd, Chinatown, Bangkok. T: (02) 223 4519. Open daily: 4:30 pm – 2:00 a.m.

Chinese food in Amazing Thailand is surely an unforgettable erotika, whether for ladies ( and especially for men)

the smiles, the fragrances , the flavors , the overwhelming cheongsamy serai senses and the highnesses of Singha. And the uncontrollable aftershocks
LOL

vendi: hi! yes, the taxi driver will know the way (i took a cab too). just tell them Chinatown, Phadung Dao road. It's the main road in chinatown and this restaurant is in the middle part of the the road in chinatown, you will definitely see it as it's very popular (the one next to T&K, with red uniform is also very popular)

wmw: yeah, i've tried another at siam square and that was way better than this. hmmm, good question, i heard there is in M'sia, not in KL nor Selangor though. and the method of cooking is different though..
