Day 5 (Trat ตราด): Eastern Thailand Food and Travel Tour. Watch all 8 videos here:

Trat is a beautiful and relaxed town in Eastern Thailand. The people are friendly and the food is outstanding. But nothing compares to the incredible and giant sized seafood you’ll find. After eating some street food in the morning, we then met up with the fantastic crew from Trat Food ( to eat one of the most amazing seafood meals of my life – including giant alien mantis shrimp!

Kuay Teow Boo Sukhumvit (ร้านก๋วยเตี๋ยวปูสุขุมวิท) – Morning market in Trat is nice to visit but there’s not much cooked food to eat. So for breakfast we went to a legendary restaurant for a couple spicy breakfast dishes.
Mantis shrimp holy basil (ข้าวกระเพรากั้ง)
Crab eggs with chilies (ข้าวพริกขี้หนูปูไข่)
Price – 50 THB ($1.60) per plate

Khao Gaeng San Toong Ek Sinchon (ข้าวแกงแสนตุ้งเอกสินชล) – If you ask anyone in Trat where to eat spicy curries, many will mention the Shell pump gas station curry restaurant. They serve San Toong style Trat curry here and it’s amazing.
Pork garcinia cowa (หมูชะมวง)
Wild boar curry (แกงหมูป่า)
Sour pineapple curry (แกงส้มสับปะรด)
Bird curry (แกงนก)
Deer curry (แกงกวางหน่อสับปะรด)
Total price – 270 THB ($8.63)

After all the morning Thai food, I was ready to get out, walk around, and explore the sights and attractions in Trat town.

Wat Phai Lom
Trat Museum
Canal walk

Khrua Loong Dee (ครัวลุงตี๋) – For dinner, we drove out, about 30 minutes from town to one of the best seafood restaurants I’ve ever been to. It’s like you’re eating in his home, and he has all the giant seafood fresh and ready to be ordered. We asked Uncle to just hook us up with a set meal and he went straight to work. All the seafood was outstanding, both incredibly fresh and the flavors of the cooking was also outstanding. But the highlight of the meal were the mantis shrimp and the giant mud crabs.

  1. You either give the “head bob” or you have “food-gasm” and go into that euphoria state. You gotta add something else to your arsenal. The videos are super repetitive.

  2. 19:02 there is some red kind meat in the mantis shrimp. Does anyone know what it is? The consistency is different than the rest of the meat, and some shrimps have it, some not. Thanks!

  3. Wat kind of grown man sits like that??lmfao im sry hes a good guy but hes to much of a p*ssy to b a man hes deff not a mans man smh
