Fluorescent lighting aside, the ambience morphs from canteen to convivial when the tables are full, but you’re here for seafood, not vibe. Once seated a 4×6 photo album with puppies on the cover and nameless dish highlights is presented with the regular menu. Visit hungry and order hot-as-hell tom yum pla too (mackerel tom yum soup); blood cockle salad lavished with herbs, shallots and galangal and aromatic pu pad pong garee (soft shell crab curry). Less seafood-oriented dishes range from kak moo pad ka prao (pork skin and fat stir-fried in red chilli and kaffir lime) to a number of plates incorporating frog meat. Tastes like chicken.
