During the Best of Bangkok Food Tour with The Hungry Tourist ( and Puppup (, one day for lunch we drove out to Kui Mong (กุ่ยหมง), a legendary restaurant that is the original restaurant in Thailand serving deep fried river shrimp (prawns).

In order to get the largest size, Puppup had to actually call the restaurant to order them one month in advance. If you just walk in you can get 400 or 600 gram shrimp probably, but the 800 gram single shrimp are hard to come by these days in Thailand.

Kui Mong (กุ่ยหมง) is very well known among Thais, mainly because most restaurant grill their river shrimp, but Kui Mong (กุ่ยหมง) is the first to deep fry them, and serve them in a ridiculously delicious oily shrimp sauce. The sauce is one of the greatest things you’ll ever taste on rice, combined with more chili garlic sauce and an alternating bite of succulent river shrimp.

They owners family are very nice, but unfortunately since it’s such a secret recipe, we weren’t able to see the cooking – so that’s why this is just a short extra Thai food video – only showing the massive deep fried Thai river shrimp and eating them.

Price – 2,000 THB ($63.44), per 800 grams shrimp

  1. Mark please consider starting a Thai food playlist in which you do the entire episode in Thai. This will not only provide a Thai version of your videos for your Thai audience but will also give non-Thai speakers who love your videos and who are trying to learn Thai a venue in which to learn.

  2. Wow I want to eat that huge Shrimp it looks so yummylicious omg I am sooooo jealous of you right now Mark, I’m literally swallowing my own salivas ???????? gosh!!!!

  3. I literally drool over the food but, I’ve never liked rice, beans, lentils & stuff like that. It makes me want to travel 100x more in hopes that the women & men in Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, and etc etc will change my mind! But mark will you please lower the music.. sometimes all I hear is music on your channel & it’s upsetting 🙁

  4. Who else waved back when adorable Micah waved to the camera? I waved back with a huge smile and said hello in Thai. Hehe.

  5. I think you meat eaters that are eating all these animals and the size of these animals are quite delusional to think it's healthy … Pretty sad that you glorify such thinking that it's safe and that it will be beneficial to your human bodies… Live well and hopefully none of you will fall to stomach, intestinal cancer …
