Well well, finally here’s the first post for the FAM trip to Krabi, and yes, it is going to be a food entry. The trip was sponsored by SeeTho Holidays and organized by Nicole, thanks thanks!

The trip went much much better than I had expected, and the hospitality of Mr. See Tho himself was really overwhelming. Despite having 3 offices in South Thailand to run (Krabi, Phuket, and Hatyai), See Tho actually spent time with us pretty much the entire trip. His funny stories and friendly smiles will be missed. He also made sure we had the best foods during the trip, which is just mighty fine for someone like me. Look no further if you are planning a holiday to South Thailand.

It was just after noon when we touched down at Krabi airport, we were greeted with fresh flowers around our neck. First agenda of the trip was lunch, we were very eager since none of us ordered anything from Air Asia’s in-flight kopitiam service.

We reached this curious little place after some 20-30 minutes drive from the airport. See Tho introduced it as the “raining duck noodle place” as they constantly have water showering from the roof (for cooling purposes). The restaurant is built on stilts over a small lake, very old school.

We ordered duck noodle soup for each of us, and patiently waits while sipping some bottled green Fanta that I haven’t drank since before puberty. Food did take a while to be served as it was a pretty busy afternoon, but boy it was worth the wait.

The duck noodle soup came with two duck drumstick, flat noodle (hor fun), bean sprouts and some spring onion on top. The soup is darkish and reminds me of koay chap I had in Penang, only this one was better. Despite drumstick being dark meat, it was really tender and required almost no effort to peel off from the bone. They must have stewed it with some herbs, the taste was superb especially with a bit of chili powder. I emptied my bowl with great satisfaction.

Since Krabi is still relatively underdeveloped and not overly commercialized as a tourist destination, each bowl only costs around 40 baht (RM 4), a very good deal don’t you think?

  1. RM4 is really a good deal. Wantan mee here also cost RM4 without the duck drumsticks.

  2. RM 4… looks tasty, comparable to the bidoh’s RM8.50 duck noodle? but why kim eat with chopstick with plastic wrap? is that the culture there?

    :)

    Yah, no doubt!
