Thailand Day 16

Nang Nual Seafood, Pattaya

This is one of the oldest restaurants in Pattaya and it's famous for its amazing selection of very fresh seafood of all kinds: lobsters, crabs, prawns, mussels, oysters, you name it.

It's located directly on the busy and famous "Walking Street" in Pattaya, but what you might not notice first is, that it has a nice outside seating directly above the ocean.

Everything goes by weight. You get a plastic basket, choose your seafood and then give it to them to measure the weight. They'll recommend a way of preparing your food, steamed, grilled, with or without sauce. Since the seafood at this place is always so fresh, I like my food prepared without any special ingredients, usually just grilled and then sprinkled with lemon juice.

Another highlight is the vegetable buffet. The same concept applies as for the seafood, you choose your veggies, put them in a basket and they'll "wok" them for you. The veggies here are always perfectly prepared, never overcooked and very crunchy.

Nang Nual is not cheap though for a seafood place in Thailand, especially if you're ordering some of their big lobsters. But you'll get the freshest and best ever!



Tiger Prawns. My favorite!











Many types of fish. I chose a cotten fish grilled while wrapped in banana leaves.










Weighing a crab.











A lobster on the scale.











Picking from many types of vegetables.











After you choose, they'll "wok" the veggies. Delicious!
