Khum Tom Yam Goong Restaurant, Cha-Am

C'est le nom d'un restaurant, dans un petit village au sud de Cha-Am, qui m'a été chaudement recommandé par un contributeur de Hua Hin After Dark, un forum d'expatriés très actif.

J'ai été conquis. L'endroit est calme et reposant mais je dois à la vérité de dire que c'est la basse saison en ce moment. Le décor est délicieusement kitch et le personnel est prévenant. Cerise sur le gâteau : c'est une des cartes les plus complètes que je n'ai jamais vu, tant en Thaï qu'en plats occidentaux et les prix sont tout à fait raisonnables.

This is the name of a restaurant, in a small village south of Cha-Am, highly recommended by a member of Hua Hin After Dark, the local forum for expats.

I was conquered by the place. It is calm and resting but I have to say that this is low season right now. The decor is deliciously kitch and the persons very friendly and attentive. Cherry on the cake : this restaurant has the most extensive menus I've never seen in this area with lots of Thai dishes as well as westerner classics. And prices are more than reasonnable.

My personal favourite Restaurant is just outside Cha Am and is behind the Regent Hotel.If you are coming from Cha Am go past the entrance for the Hotel and take the next left where you see a yellow sala and follow the round into the small village,turn right at the crossroads and it is on your left,you can park at the side.

The place is called Tom Yum Gung Restaurant and whilst it is open air the decor is very good with beautiful table and chairs.They have what has to be one of the most extensive menus you will see anywhere with both Thai and Western food and some oddities like Crockodile,Osrich and Deer on the menu,tried the Cockodile which was delicious.The owner is a nice Thai guy who will tell you where all the food comes from.

Prices are fantastic for food and drink, 40 Bt for a Singha and 80 Bt for a Magarita. Another place I visit a lot is Aroi Restaurant which is 200 mtrs before you get to Crawfords on the same side.Thai food here is always good but they do the best English breakfast in Cha Am IMHO. for 100 B.
