“Krua Kriang Nam” literally means Kitchen by the river in Thai language. The place clearly demonstrates river side ambiance with breeze near the Chaophraya river with some boat sailing around as an alternative choice of traveling in Thailand.

Coconut shoot provide firm texture which supported by spiciness from chili and sweetness shrimp. Making a great combination with rice to relief spiciness.

Small Crab Somtum (Thai spicy papaya salad)

Somtum is an all-around dish with spiciness from chili, sourness from lime, saltiness from fish fermented sauce and sweetness. This dish exhibits how enjoyable Somtum should be.

Grilled River Shrimp

This is one of me personal favorite. The texture of shrimp are so firm and sweet. Topped with spicy seafood sauce. Then mix the shrimp oil from the head with rice and enjoy one of the most simple and delicious menu Chaopraya river could offer.

Fried frog legs

Pretty sure this menu might excite and freak some people out at the same time. I gotta admit that used to have the same feeling too. Then I tried one haha. The skin part are so crispy and the leg part have such high similarity to chicken firmness.

Recently, I’ve found a restaurant with a Thai snack buffet in Samsen area. The restaurant provides seafood and Isaan (north eastern Thai style food).  Snack buffet cost 199 THB per person and there are quite a choice of Isaan food to try out. They have informed me that snack buffet time is 16:00-22:00.

Deep fried chicken joints. Crispy and crunchy and fits perfectly as a biting size snack. The seasoning are still bland thus some dipping sauce are recommended.

Yum Woon Sen (Spicy cellophane noodle) Really spicy salad, quite enjoyable.

Peppered Fried frog. Lots of bone and not much meat. The texture are also kinda dry.

Pla Dook Foo (Fried catfish with crunchy flour) Amazing texture and not too oily. Combining with spiciness from spicy sauce makes a enjoyable dish.

In case anyone want to try cooking Som Tam, they also provide cooking platform. The only problem is if the dish is bad, you know who to blame lol

Minced pork meat ball mostly contains of flour and leaves weird feeling in your mouth. I personally suggest avoiding this dish. Rice crackers on the right are good though.

Pla muk nung manow (Lemon steamed squid) The texture of squid are fresh and well-seasoned.

Overall, I am satisfied with the food quality and restaurant ambiance. Staff services are worth commenting since they are friendly and provide a professional-level service.
