Bangkok Eats: Lek Seafood

A dear old friend Ada is visiting from Singapore. With her are her husband, her two cuties Audrey (7) and Anthony (4), her mother-in-law and brother-in-law. Prior to her visit, we had been emailing and I listed 3 suggestions for restaurants, all relatively near to where we are staying in Sathorn; Lek Seafood (Cheap and good but totally no ambience), Banana Leaf (Cheap and quite good and cafe- like), Secret Garden (More pricey, good food, nice ambience and great cakes).

Well, yesterday we all went to Lek Seafood. So altogether, there were 6 adults and 4 kids (including a sleeping one). This is what we ordered and at the end of the post, you'll see how much dinner cost.

For drinks, 2 coconut juice, coke and sprite for the kids, 3 chrysanthemum juice, a Singha beer.

Large tomyam goong. Not fantastic but can do lah. This was 150 baht I think. Go google how much that is in Singapore dollars.

2 plates of morning glory. Real yummy but a little spicy. Each plate is 70baht.

2 plates of fishballs. Each plate 50 baht.


Stir fried squids with salted eggs

Stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts

2 plates of brandy-marinated fried pork ribs. 100 baht per plate.

1kg of bbq river prawns. YUM!! 400 baht.

BBQ/Baked seabass. I love this. Try to order this right upfront and get them to start bbq-ing before ordering the other dishes cos this dish always arrives really late, sometimes after everything else has been eaten. 320 baht.

For dishes without price, those are ordered by Eddie, not something I would order. So I can't really remember. The ones I remember are those I order each time I come here. I've come here quite a number of times and have had crabs (not great and quite pricey) and cockles and fresh oysters.

In total the bill came to 2000 baht. That's slightly less than S$90. Cheap or not? :)
