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.

From the first bite of the crab meat and fish maw, visitors are given an explosion of flavours and texture: the gooey & velvety texture of seafood that has been simmered in a thick malty and hearty broth is truly the perfect start to the day.
It was not a surprise that their fish maw would sell out before 11AM, because of its freshness, convenience and rich texture; additionally, the soup is affordable.
