Prachuap Khiri Khan Restaurants: 4 reviews and 10 photos
There are many fine restaurants in Prachapkhirikan, although the traveller, if he does not speak Thai, will find himself confined to those along the seafront where the English menus lie. In fairness, this is not a problem as there is a plethora of very good places both along the main beach road and also towards the fishing village behind Mirror Mountain Rock. I happened upon this place my first evening in PKK and was very satisfied with it. As a general rule, I try to visit as many different places in any given town as possible, but I kept being drawn back here by the extremely friendly service and the quality of the food.
Although a few Westerners put their faces in here, it is primarily frequented by Thai paople, which I always take to be a good sign. I know the VT setup is going to prompt me to a favourite dish and this will be difficult as I have had so many delicious dishes here. As with restaurants anywhere, I love the concept of being able to see the kitchen. In Demer, you not only see it, you walk through it should you need to use the facilities!
I have to say, whilst basic, like most Thai kitchens, it is spotless and the food it supplies sublime. If absolutely pushed to pick one, it would be the fried butterfish with spicy sauce. Unfortunately, I did not think to take a photo but, believe me, it was divine. Perhaps a little hot for some Western tastes but, as I have explained in other tips, I can handle hot Asian food. It was cooked to perfection, with the skin nicely crisp and the meat succulent and not at all dried out as can happen with flat fish.
Ah, in the way of these things and reflecting so much that I love about this place my (offline) writing of this tip has just been interrupted in the nicest possible way by being waylaid by some of the lovely Thai staff wanting to look at my photos and asking about what I was writing. I showed them both, explained about VT and we had a lovely chat, such is the nature of this place.
I thoroughly recommend it.
Favorite Dish: Fried butterfish with spicy sauce.
Comparison: about average
Directions: Towards the South end of the beach road just beside Mo Prow restaurant.
Price: less than US$10
