Our friend Sonia recommended the restaurant that her boss owns. With a name like Best Seafood Restaurant I had high expectations.
The restaurant was within walking distance from Mr. Feet and very near all the big malls like Central World and Gaysorn.
The interiors of the restaurant wasn’t a reflection of how good the food was.
Sonia said glass water bottles were served in restaurants only. While plastic bottles were sold in stores. I loved the pull tab cap on the bottle.
We wanted a simple and light dinner so Sonia ordered mostly veggies, salads and fish. The simply seasoned kang kong was a big hit with everyone.
stir fried morning glory or kang kong – 90 baht
Squid so tender with a spicy and sour vinaigrette. Very refreshing.
squid salad – 150 baht
I’m not fond of green papaya salad but everyone assured me it was delicious.
Thai papaya salad – 60 baht
I couldn’t believe this was catfish salad. It was perfectly crisp yet tender unlike the ones I’ve had in Manila that was sometimes overcooked and flavorless. It came with the green mango salad which complemented the crispy catfish to a tee.

Sonia must have read my mind. I love fried fish! Wow back to back fried fish. You would think fried overload but all the fresh, tangy salads balanced out the fried food.
deep fried sea bass– 400 baht
This was the first pork dish we’ve had in Bangkok. So simple, so good.
grilled pork – 100 baht
What’s a Thai meal without soup? Sonia ordered our two favorite soups. Tom ka gai or chicken with coconut soup and tom yum. Both excellent!
tom ka gai soup – 150 baht
tom yum soup (spicy sour soup w/ prawns) – 300 baht
Sonia asked someone to go across the street to buy this huge mango with sticky rice and coconut sauce from a sidewalk vendor. The mango was very sweet but I still prefer Philippine mangoes. I was already very, very full from dinner but I had to try the sticky rice. Even without the coconut sauce it was heavenly, so soft and flavorful. If I knew we were having this for dessert I would have skipped the soup.

Sister? Twins? Sonia and her mini-me daughter. So cute!
Thank you Sonia for the excellent recommendation.The food was faultless and very affordable. Even without noodles or rice we had a very filling and satisfying dinner.
