Takua Pa Khrua Bai Toey Phang Nga
Have you heard of Takua Pa? Well it is a small town located on the north of Khao Lak in the province of Phang Nga and the journey is around 30 mins of short drive. We did a review of Khrua Nong in Takua Pa and Khrua Bai Toey is the second restaurant listed in Michelin Guide Thailand 2019 and Khrua Bai Toey is given the recognition of Michelin Plate.
Khrua Bai Toey is the one of the 15 restaurants and street food listed in Michelin Guide Thailand 2019. This is our ninth restaurant review and there will be sixth restaurants review coming soon. You can check out the full list of restaurants in our special dedicated page at https://www.placesandfoods.com/themichelinguidethailand
There are two sections in this restaurant, open air concept and air-conditioned room. We took the air-conditioned room. There are Michelin Guide logos all over the place in this restaurant.
We ordered three dishes and they are spicy minced pork, Tom Kha Gai and Fried Prawns with Garlic. The vegetable dish (nam prik pak sod) is complimentary by the restaurant.
Nam Prik Pak Sod is a common food in Southern Thailand. This dish is usually free of charge and you eat the vegetables with chili paste like snack. You can find many locals taking their time enjoying this dish.
Spicy Minced Pork. This minced pork is stir fried with turmeric and chili and the taste is spicy. This is super spicy for me and you have to take the vegetables to diffuse the spiciness. If you love spicy, you must order this.
Tom Kha Gai is the ‘white colour’ version of Tom Yum Goong. Instead of chili, the soup is strong with coconut milk flavour and it is still sour and spicy. We ordered Tom Kha Gai that comes with chicken and it complements well with the white rice. We thought it will be nice to taste the coconut version since we had the usual red Tom Yum during this trip and it is different and not disappointing.
Lastly, we ordered the fried prawns with garlic and pepper. The size of the prawns are L size and they are fresh. The prawns are deep fried to crispiness and the shell is so crispy, you can eat the shell too. It is flavoured with the garlic and pepper and you can also complement it with the sweet Thai chili sauce.
The total bill is around THB 600 and it is value for money. The food here is good and we do enjoyed all the food we ordered. Khrua Bai Toey restaurant. You can do something shopping at Big C and then you can dine at Khrua Bai Toey. Good food and reasonable pricing, Khrua Bai Toey is a restaurant you can consider visiting while you are at Takua Pa, Phang Nga.
