One of the most popular culinary expeditions in the Thai capital is to go to Chinatown for seafood, and locals will tell you that there are two options: the restaurant with green uniforms and another with yellow uniforms. We chose the former, which is T&K. Filling a narrow four-story building, this place first impresses with all the activity at the entrance, as fresh seafood is sorted and order slips are transported up and down various floors along wires. The stairways are narrow and so was our table, but this is not the place for a peaceful ambience. You come here for cheap and cheery fresh catches of the day. The oyster Thai omelet (THB100/$3) was full of very plump and sweet mollusks, but the stir-fried meat crab with black pepper (THB300/$10 per small portion) was only so-so. We did enjoy the steamed prawns in fresh milk (THB200/$6.20 for a small portion) – it took some getting used to, but the crustaceans were flavorful and the milk gave it a smooth texture. Open 4:30 PM – 2:00 AM; 49-51 Soi Phadung Dao, Chinatown; tel +66 2 223 4519.
