    [​IMG]Very good khao kaeng tai (southern curry rice)shop at thepprasit. Regular here.

    [​IMG]The stall owner charge 40 baht for rice with 1 dish or 50 baht for rice with 2 dish.

    Cook in small quantity, thats why very nice.

    This is bloody expensive - 1 dish plus rice 40 baht? Ridiculous

    Saw my post 3 dishes plus rice is 50 baht and even then I think is not cheap

    Tried steam Gang Kaew (mantis prawns) last night. Quite a disappointment as not as much meat as compared to prawns. The stall owner told us small size gang kaew is cheaper than prawns. Because took a long time for it to grow to big size. But once it reach 6 inches, the price increase exponentially. And those bigs size gang kaew all chop by the restaurants already.

    Yup. Agree is quite expensive but taste really good. Can tell that the stall owner(khun Yaai granny) only cooked in small amount, so the quality of the food is quite good. Packed during lunch hours as the nearby Southern curry rice stalls cannot fight this one.
