Crab meat omelette store in Bangkok

Khai Khon Poo, or creamy omelette with crab meat, is one of the most popular dishes to try when in Thailand. Mae Klong Hua Pla Mor Fai at Phutthamonthon Sai 1 sells this heavenly combination of soft and juicy omelette with succulent fresh crab meat that is one of the best in BKK.

The restaurant has been one of the bigger names in the neighborhood, and is known for its fresh seafood recipes like fish tom yum. Here’s what to try:

We recommend trying their Khao Pad Kai Yerm Poo (฿280, size S), a creamy crab omelette with fried rice. Don’t be fooled with it being small-sized – it actually comes with a generous amount of fried rice that can feed up to 2-3 people. The highlight of the dish is its omelette, which has a juicy texture that allows the sweet flavour of the thick crab meat to come through.

The fried rice also tastes good and goes well with the egg and crab, with a distinct smoky flavour from being wok-fried.

Besides the omelette, we also recommend going for other well-loved sides. As the restaurant is famous for seafood, you should go for some Pla Muek Pad Khai Khem (฿220), stir-fried squid with salted egg. 

For foodies who would like something more adventurous, pick the Goong Chae Nam Pla (฿150); raw prawn in a spicy sauce, for a burst of flavour. Plus, the restaurant owner is very proud to present her Poo Khai Nung Nom Sod (฿1,500, 1 kg) – that’s steamed crab roe with fresh milk. Not something you’d typically find in most restaurants in BKK!
