The Thai Gulf in the area of Petchaburi is famous for the tasty mackerel or "Pratu". Nam Prik Kie Poo is a Tasty dipping sauce made from combining crab eggs, chili paste, and other spices served with fresh vegetables. Very tasty!
These types of grilling restaurants are quite common in Thailand. Each table has its own grill in center table and you order the raw meats and vegetables. The Restaurant will provide a dipping sauce made from a variety of spices, depending on the restaurant.
In my opinion, the best Padthai restaurant in Thailand is Thip Samai located in Old Town Bangkok, quite near the Golden Mount. I know that is saying a lot but my padthai was amazing and I want to spread the word about the great taste. I obviously was not alone in my love to this great Thai dish because I got their early and the lines started long before the daily opening and most of the people in line were Thai! I got the special, which is padthail with shrimp, crab meat and green mango, it was amazing.
The Restaurant is Thip Samai and is located in old town area of Bangkok, just around the corner from Golden Mount. Making the restaurant an easy stop while you are touring the Old Town Area. You can follow the link below to see exactly where this awesome restaurant is on Google Map:
