Best thing You ate in BKK and Krabi

Im going to be in BKK and Krabi in early December and I wanna know what the best thing you ate are..

Can be anything from anywhere in kbb or krabi..

Im going to be traveling with 3 other guys and we are down for street cart to fine dining.

Please be detailed with the location and the dish it self, if we get good enough info. I'll be happy to do a TR on each place. 5 days in bkk and 4 days in krabi.

Thanks sharing

There's a longish thread here on Bangkok food, which has expanded a bit to cover all of Thailand.

Guide to Bangkok Eating: Restaurants, Street Food and More


Mark Wiens (Migrationology) has quite a few reviews from the Krabi area, and a lot from Bangkok as well.

In krabi town go to Poo Dam opposite the black crab statue.
Great fresh seafood there, I go there everytime I'm around ​​​​​. Order lemongrass steamed white mussel, boo pad pong garee and choose the big shrimps for bbq.
Enjoy!

Thanks for pointing me to the thread. I feel like I've missing out all this time!!

How do you rate Mark Wiens? He speaks Thai and gets around to many different places. For me, his reviews are generally just positive. Maybe I am being a bit mean spirited, but I don't get a benchmark from him what he thinks is bad; it all seems to be good.

We ate at Gaggan last December and it was quite an experience. It has been ranked as the top restaurant in Asia the past few years. The tasting menu is pretty reasonable for the caliber of restaurant but they really get you on the wine. You would have to reserve far in advance. Gaggan is closing in 2020 and opening a new venture in Japan. We have a review with some pictures on our non-commercial blog if you are interested.

We also ate at Issaya which was a lot cheaper, delicious, and we really enjoyed sitting in their garden.

There is so much good street food in Bangkok as well. You can't really go wrong.

everything he recommended was really good. especially the mackerel heads.

Also Dine in Dark in Sheraton was quite an experience. The food itself was so so.

for cheaper eats, the food court on top of terminal 21 was good.

He reviews interesting places but I find his voice and mannerisms grating and can no longer watch.

Oh, puhleeze!! Every time he tastes something, he sighs, closes his eyes and tilts his head. Strikes me as sooooo disingenuous and done for the camera. You're being way too kind, DS37. I can't stand him.

What about believing his 'voice and mannerisms grating' is kind or suggests I derive anything other than scorn for him?

Well, that's probably because .... he's doing it for the camera


But I have no reason to believe he's a jot less irritating off camera!!!
