Situated in the south of Thailand, Krabi is a great destination for those who love to eat as the island is famous for a number of culinary treats. A great breakfast dish is the khanomjeen fresh noodles, which is served with spicy fish curry sauce known as nam ya pak tai.
Much of Krabi’s cuisine is inspired by China’s street food such as xiao chi, and is served in small bamboo baskets. Chinese buns, shrimp dumplings are popular local delicacies, as well as rice noodle rolls with shrimps and spring rolls.
Takola is a particularly successful local restaurant, which serves all these local treats with a certain flare. As one of the waiters told Nation Multimedia recently: “Bah kut teh is typical Hokkien dish, and you can have it in restaurants owned by members of the Chinese communities from Phuket to Malaysia to Singapore. Black pepper, ginseng, cumin, cloves, cinnamon and nine more herbs and spices are steamed with the pork rib for hours.”
So when you travel to Krabi make sure you bring your appetite with you. Bon appétit.
