Why Krung Gaeng Thai Restaurant is special ?

Deep fried seabass marinated in fish sauce

Nam Prik Rong Reur

Gaeng Som

Nam Prik Rong Reur. "Nam Priks" are Thai chilli dips, served with fresh or steamed vegetables. This particular chilli dip is simply fabulous at Him Baan Suan. Kreung Gaeng Restaurant does a different variation - more liquidy, but still pretty good. This chilli dip at Kreung Gaeng is quite salty and is made even saltier when eaten with salted eggs, although this saltiness is toned down with rice and the super fresh vegies. Warning -  The dip does have the shrimp paste and dried shrimps in it, so not everyone will like it.

Gaeng Som - spicy sour soup. This particular one is Gaeng Som Dok Kae Goong Sod. "Dok Kae" is an edible flower, slightly bitter in taste, and "goong sod" is fresh prawn. Generally, gaeng soms are very tangy in taste (from tamarinds), and sugar is used to enhance the flavour as well. I find Kreung Gaeng's spicy sour soup too sweet.

“Unlike an attractive outlook, Kreung Gaeng Thai Restaurant looks simple when we moved inside. We took time to see the menu but just order Gaeng Som (kind of spicy sour soup), fried fish and fruit juices for dinner. Free wifi connection was a plus point. Can’t wait to go back and try other dishes.”
