Food in Ao Nang (อ่าวนาง), Krabi at Cheap Cheap Thai Restaurant

►Thai Food Guides:

Yes, the real name of this restaurant is Cheap Cheap Restaurant, and it’s located just down the road from the main drag of Ao Nang – the touristy central of Krabi. There are a lot of restaurants in Ao Nang that cater to mostly touristy, both international restaurants and Thai restaurants.

Through some family contacts, we went to Cheap Cheap Restaurant, and I was quite impressed with the menu… they literally had almost everything, from every corner of Thailand on their menu – there must be hundreds of dishes to choose from. While they did have some popular touristy dishes like pad Thai, they also had some seriously good southern and even northern Thai dishes. Soon I found out that the chef at Cheap Cheap restaurant in Ao Nang was a former hotel chef, and knew how to cook just about every type of Thai dish.

We first began with a coconut to drink, which was incredibly sweet and refreshing. I don’t drink coconut too often, but I really enjoy them when I do. They are so fresh and hydrating and just naturally sweet.

The main dish I was most interested in trying was their version of pla sai tod kamin (ปลาทรายทอดขมิ้น), deep fried fish made with sand whiting fish, which are kind of small French fry sized fish, which are quite popular to eat in Krabi. The stack of fish came to our table extremely crispy, and topped with a mound of crispy turmeric and garlic, and served with a chili garlic lime sauce on the side. They were extremely delicious.

The other dishes we ordered at Cheap Cheap Restaurant in Krabi included, kai jeow (ไข่เจียว) – a Thai style omelet, soup neua (ซุปเนื้อ) – beef soup, gaeng som cha om kai (แกงส้มกุ้งชะอมไข่) – soup with climbing wattle omelet inside.

All the dishes we tried at Cheap Cheap Restaurant were excellent. I think it’s a good restaurant in Ao Nang to order a diverse range of good Thai food.
