Fish maw soup with crab


Kapropla, or ‘fish maw’ is a popular breakfast dish across Thailand that is usually eaten with shredded chicken and quail eggs. 

Krapropla Cathay takes the hearty soup a step further by adding crab meat and abalone in their fish maw recipe. The added seafood ingredients make the restaurant’s broth a distinguished and coveted dish that they are often sold out by 11AM every morning.
