Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ), or river fish restaurant in one of my ultimate favorite restaurants in Bangkok, Thailand. If you love spicy food, this is a place you will love.
This was a spur of the moment meal and video – I was hanging out with my friend Drew ( and after going to a floating market, we happened to be not too far away. So we stopped off to eat at Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ), a restaurant I’m willing to travel to the ends of the earth to eat at.
They have a full menu of Thai dishes, most of them quite spicy, and most of them using freshwater fish – that’s even what the name of the restaurant is.
Here are the dishes we ordered:
Chili stir fry (ผัดเผ็ดปลาเค้า) – This is probably my favorite dish to order here, they make no mistakes, it’s literally liquid fire curry, and you can choose your choice of fish to go with it. The herbs also balance the heat, including both holy basil and sweet basil.
Jungle curry eel (แกงป่าปลาไหล) – Here’s also one of the greatest dishes, and it happens to be one of the best versions in all of Bangkok for me. This jungle curry will blow your taste buds off your tongue!
Fried fish cakes (ทอดมันปลากราย) – The fried fish cakes are a dish that just about no one who eats at Pla Mae Nam Restaurant (ร้านปลาแม่น้ำ) doesn’t order, and they happen to be the best I’ve ever had. They are so spongy.
Fried fish (ปลาเนื้ออ่อนทอด) – Again, you can choose your fish, which is deep fried, topped with fried garlic, and served with sauce and pineapple.
Fried frog (กบทอดกระเทียม) – Another dish we decided to try this meal was fried frog. The frog was very meaty, and delicious.
Shrimp, stink beans (กุ้งผัดสะตอ) – Finally, our waitress talked us into ordering stink beans – it wasn’t very hard to talk me into it. It’s always a favorite dish of mine. It was superb, nothing short of flavor overdose in the mouth.
Total price – 2,020 THB ($62.29)
