Located about 10-minute walk away from Marriott Vacation Club Resort and Spa, we read about its relatively good food in Tripadvisor and decided to go explore!
From the main entrance of the resort, we made a right turn and pretty much just followed the road and then a right turn at the junction and just continued to walk and walk. The sun was setting as we strolled, aand it was all dark by the time we arrived at the rows of stalls. We did not really check out the rest of the stalls, but made our way somewhere just past the middle to Thiwsoen.
We were given seats at a little hut, and a basin of water and insect repellent arrived at our table, how thoughtful! Without the insect repellent, we would have been covered with bites.
Food prices were comparable to Kin Dee, and we decided to sample a few dishes:
- Shrimp Cake (200B): Soft and slightly fluffy, the fried shrimp cakes were not dense like the crab cakes that we had at Kin Dee. The batter had plenty of shrimp bits and was yummy!
- Fried Morning Glory (100B): Quite standard stir fry Kang Kong with bean paste, that was abit too salty.
- Hor Mok Steamed Seafood with Curry Paste in Coconut (280B): A form of Thai curry fish custard, this was the winner of the night. It was super fragrant, and the shrimps, crab claws and squids were very fresh and sweet. Scrapping off the coconut flesh and eating with the slightly sweet and spicy curry was a bonus!
Overall, it was quite a lovely meal, minus the mosquitoes, and the cute little boy running all over taking orders and serving food gave this little family-run eatery a even more welcoming feel, and we left the place happily, with our phone flashlights on, as we made our way back along the now almost-dark roads.

We had a rather late lunch due to the very heavy breakfast, and finally settled for Spring by Sanyod while we were roaming about in Central World. This appeared to be a Chinese-Thai fusion restaurant. Here’s what we had, and I think the fried items were probably the better ones:
- Seafood Tom Yum Soup: Not bad at all. There was a good balance of sour and spicy, so I didn’t choke on it the way I sometimes do back in Singapore.
- Hong Kong Collard Greens with Oyster Sauce: Pretty standard Hong Kong Kailan with oyster sauce
- Green Curry (Chicken) with Rice: This was just alright… somehow it did not quite have the “kick” to it.
- Deep Fried Fish Topped with Spicy Sauce: With the Thai spicy sauce, this dish was quite appetizing.
- Deep Fried Chicken Wings in Red Wine Sauce: Definitely one of my favourites!
- Deep Fried Shrimp Cakes: Another of my favourites, simple dish with yummy dip.
- Crispy Fish Maw Spicy Salad: This was very interesting, with rather unexpected texture and taste. The fish maw was deep fried till crispy, much like crackers, while the thinly-sliced squid pieces were deep fried as well, but had a more chewy texture.
With drinks, our total bill for 5 adults came up to be THB1358, inclusive of 7% VAT.
