One evening in Bangkok, we decided to go to an area of Bangkok known as Charoen Krung, a bit south of Saphan Taksin, to eat at a restaurant known as Ah Ou Bangrak (ร้านอาอู๋ บางรัก). When my wife told me they served Chinese street food in Bangkok, and specialized mostly in seafood dishes, I knew we had to go immediately. The restaurant opens up at about 5 pm in the evening, and in order to take advantage of the good light, and also to beat the main dinner crowds (this restaurant can get really busy), we arrived as soon as they pretty much opened.
Ah Ou Bangrak (ร้านอาอู๋ บางรัก) specializes especially in Chinese food, and lots of seafood. The menu included a huge range of different dishes, and they all looked and sounded amazing. One of the things I noticed that nearly every table eating at this restaurant in Bangkok ordered was something known as hoy jaw (หอยจ้อ), which are sort of like deep fried pieces of dim sum. I think it was a mixture of crab and shrimp and pork, all encased in a small wrapper and then deep fried to a crisp on the outside. They are extremely popular at Ah Ou Bangrak (ร้านอาอู๋ บางรัก). I myself, didn’t like them extremely much because the texture was a little on the mushy side. So the hoy jaw (หอยจ้อ) was probably my least favorite dish of the meal.
Moving on to bigger and better Chinese street food dishes, we ordered a nice spread of seafood when we ate at Ah Ou Bangrak (ร้านอาอู๋ บางรัก). Probably my favorite dish of the meal was kra por pla pad haeng (กระเพาะปลาผัดแห้ง), or fish maw stir fried dry with shrimp, egg, and bean sprouts, and a few other random ingredients. It was absolutely fantastic, the fish maw was sort of spongy in texture, but it was soft and not chewy. All the flavor was soaked up by the fish maw – you have to order this dish if you eat here. Next we also tried tao hoo nam daeng (เต้าหู้น้ำแดง), which is Thai Chinese style tofu in gravy. The tofu was deep fried first, so it had a nice skin on it, then submerged in a flavorful gravy that included nice bits of seafood like shirmp and crab. It was also fantastic. It’s really rare that I get to eat razor clams in Bangkok, especially when I’m eating street food, but we ordered pad nor mai farang (เป๋าฮื้อเส้นผัดหน่อไม้กุ้งสด), razor clams with asparagus. The razor clams were so meaty and so delicious and paired with mushrooms and the fresh and crisp asparagus, it was extremely tasty. Finally to wrap up our Chinese Thai street food Bangkok feast we ordered mee Hong Kong pad haeng (หมี่ฮ่องกงผัดแห้ง), Hong Kong style fried noodles. This dish at Ah Ou Bangrak (ร้านอาอู๋ บางรัก) was also spot on. The noodles were fried dry, and not too oily. They were slightly crispy, perfectly salty, and just complimented all the other dishes on the table. This was for sure one of the better plates of stir fried Chinese style rice noodles that I’ve had in Bangkok in a long time.
Overall I thought the food at Ah Ou Bangrak (ร้านอาอู๋ บางรัก) was superb. It’s a street food restaurant in Bangkok, but they serve high quality food and delicious seafood dishes. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
