เฮียให้ / Here Hai
Location : 112/1 Ekamai Road
Last but definitely not the least, this crab specialty restaurant is an absolute must-try for crab enthusiasts! Though this restaurant may be the most underrated hidden gem on the list, its easy-going Chinese-inspired Thai cuisines are a sure recommendation to any foodies. Here Hai specializes in ข้าวผัดโคตรปู / khao pad khort pu (crab fried rice)—a dish very popular among both locals and expats for its simplicity and umami qualities—and holds a commendable reputation for being one of the best places to get fried rice in Bangkok.
With dishes similar to Nhong Rim Klong and less of a wait time, this traditional restaurant includes many other delectable highlights such as โคตรกั้งกระเทียมพริกไทย / khort kang kratiam prik thai (stir fried mantis shrimp with garlic and pepper) and กุ้งยักษ์เผา / kung yak pao (grilled giant river prawn).
This Michelin Guide restaurant derives its roots from the southern province of Surat Thani, along with a rich history associated with Here Hai—the originator of these recipes—who was in pursuit of the best crab fried rice unimaginable. What an amazing find!
