Another Menu Items

Here is all the food we ate at The Seafood Cafe and Restaurant Yaowarat (China Town) that day.

Premium Menu

We reserved a Premium package, that includes one premium dish per person.

Egg Crab Steamed with Milk

Egg Crab Steamed with Milk
Crab roe is fresh and creamy, with the scent of milk and Chinese herbs. It pairs very well with seafood dipping sauce. What a fantastic dish!

River Prawn

River Prawn
It is so fresh. The shrimp paste is creamy and has a pleasant aroma. The one I tried was of excellent quality!

Buffet Menu

All you can eat, Yayyyy!!

กุ้งแม่น้ำเผา
Grilled River Prawn

Grilled River Prawn
It is fresh and has a creamy shrimp paste. The texture is so fresh and firm. The grilled shrimp shell gives off a pleasant aroma. You can order as much as you want! This menu is worth it.

Butter Grilled Scallop

Butter Grilled Scallop
Those scallops are all large. What a good smell that comes from garlic butter. I don’t even need any sauce for this. Totally love it.

Fried Scallop with Chili and Salt

Fried Scallop with Chili and Salt
Fresh, sweet, and delicious smell of garlic and chili. It’s savory. They have very tasty scallops, isn’t it?

Oyster
Oyster

Oyster
Fresh, large, firm, and fleshy, served with fried onion, chili paste, and acacia leaves.

Marinated Salmon
Marinated Salmon

Marinated Salmon
They marinated it so well! Mouthwatering. The texture of the salmon is soft and tender. Serve with a
seaweed sheet, rice, and a small piece of garlic. I like it!

Fried Shrimp with Tamarind Sauce

Fried Shrimp with Tamarind Sauce
Big flesh shrimp that gives off a pleasant smell. Stir-fried in sweet and sour tamarind sauce with bell pepper and cashew nuts.

Stir-fried Squid with Salted Egg Sauce

Stir-fried Squid with Salted Egg Sauce
Very fresh squid, lightly coated in batter and not greasy. Medium-intensity salted egg sauce, salty and sweet. The taste is not spectacular but still delicious.

Steamed Seabass with Lime and Chillie

Steamed Seabass with Lime and Chillie
Fresh fish, fine texture, sweet and salty, slightly spicy, with a slight artificial lemon flavor.
If you come here with just one or two people, you may not want to order this. Because it is so big!

Hot and Sour Seafood Soup (Tom Yum Kung)

Hot and Sour Seafood Soup (Tom Yum Kung)
The dish is sweet, sour, salty, and not too spicy, with one river prawn, squid, and mushrooms. The soup has a nice aroma.

Thai Prawn Cake

Thai Prawn Cake
Crispy, not oily, it has an aromatic shrimp scent. But it also has quite a bit of flour and the texture is too heavy. You don’t miss anything if you don’t order it.

I think the Crab Spring Roll is so much better if you like deep-fried foods.

Sizzling Oyster Omelette

Sizzling Oyster Omelette
Crispy outside, soft and chewy inside. It pairs well with stir-fried bean sprouts. But it doesn’t have a lot of clams. Not recommended.

Crab Fried Rice

Crab Fried Rice
It’s soft, crumbly, eggy, not oily, and contains quite a bit of crab meat. The rice has a well-balanced flavor without the rich aroma of a burnt wok, as with traditional fried rice.

Be careful as some dishes may contain a little bit of crab shell in them.

Stir-Fried Crab Meat with Curry and Egg

Stir-Fried Crab Meat with Curry and Egg
This dish has a moderate amount of crab meat. The taste is intense and delicious when eaten with rice, otherwise, it might be too salty.

Salmon Sashimi

Salmon Sashimi
The meat is a bit too soft. It is edible but I’m not recommend

Seafood Dipping Sauce
Although it has a slight artificial lemon scent, it was so yummy!

There are both green and red seafood dipping sauces. The red sauce has a slightly stronger scent of red chili than the green one. I like the green sauce better.

Dessert

You can order it just only one dish per person

Coconut Ice Cream

Coconut Ice Cream
Coconut ice cream is creamy, and not very sweet. It comes with a few Thai desserts, such as Tub Tim Krob (Water Chestnuts in Syrup) and Foi Thong.

Coconut Ice Cream with Tub Tim Krob

Coconut Ice Cream with Tub Tim Krob
The same coconut ice cream, but this time it comes with more Tub Tim Krob instead of other Thai desserts. 

Although The Tub Tim Krob should be softer outside and crispier inside, this dish is still satisfying.

Mango Jelly and Sticky Rice

Mango Jelly and Sticky Rice
A dessert that mimics mango sticky rice. Coconut milk jelly is on top, followed by mango and glutinous rice.

Banana Samosa

Banana Samosa
Banana wrapped in thin pastry dough, crispy fried, and not oily. The taste is lightly sweet with a bitter-sweet flavor from the chocolate sauce.

Ginkgo with Milk

Ginkgo with Milk
Soft and chewy ginkgo in milk. It is not too sweet and has a milky aroma.
