Khua Kling Pak Sod is a family-owned restaurant specializing in authentic Southern Thai cuisine. This restaurant comes highly recommended by one of my favorite YouTubers- Marion Grasby, a Thai-Australian cook.
One difference between Southern and Northern Thai cuisine is that the spices and herbs are more prominent in Southern dishes.
I ordered a spicy and sour soup with sea bass, stir-fried lump crab meat, and stir fry morning glory with shrimp paste.
The tanginess makes this soup very appetizing. The sea bass was fresh, and there was a fair amount of herb in the broth. The herbs eaten on their own are quite pungent, but it gives the soup a lovely aroma.
The stir-fried crab meat was my favorite dish. The herbs and chili did not overpower the natural flavors and sweetness of the crab meat. A great accompaniment with rice.
A great place to try Southern Thai cuisine.
