Jae Dum Rangsit Klong 10

Jae Dum, the lady in Coca Cola apron, personally greets us at our table. We are long-time customers. My dad found this place about 25 years ago. Jae Dum was selling her food from a wooden stall across her current shop location. Her cooking is phenomenal. This place is our all-time favourite.

River prawns, grilled to perfection, nobody does this better than Jae Dum. Other reccommended dishes: Tom Yum Kung, Tod Mun Pla Krai (fish cake), Luk Chin Pla Krai (fish ball), Pad Kiew Wan (pan fried green curry) and fried chinese broccoli with prawn craws.

We also try this new menu: yummy steamed crab craws. Baht 250 a pop, it worths every penny.
