Thai Curry Paradise: 75+ Dishes You Can Choose – Unbelievable Southern Thailand Food!


Southern Thailand is home to an amazing array of Thai curry, and in my opinion, Nakhon Si Thammarat (นครศรีธรรมราช) is one of the best eating provinces in Southern Thailand. The province is also known for generally having some of Thailand’s spiciest, fiercest dishes.

Khao Gaeng Sudyod Saphan Yao (ครัวป้าจง ข้าวแกงสุดยอดสะพานยาว) is one restaurant you don’t want to miss when you’re in Nakhon Si Thammarat. I took an unofficial count of the different Thai dishes they had prepared on the day I ate here, and it was over 75, and they had a few more dishes on the side, like side dips and salads that I forgot to cook. The display of Thai curry is enough to make cry tears of joy.

Here are the Thai curry dishes I ordered:

Gaeng taypo hua pla (แกงเทโพหัวปลา) – fish head curry with coconut milk
Gaeng khua hoy kom (แกงคั่วหอยขม) – Thai river snails curry
Yam pla chichang (ยำปลาฉิ้งฉ้าง) – green mango and dried fish salad
Yam boo kaem (ยำปูเค็ม) – raw rice paddy crab salad with sour tamarind
Gaeng khua gai baan (แกงคั่วไก่บ้าน) – spicy free range chicken curry

Total price – 290 THB ($8.51)

I think it was a pretty amazing deal for Ying and I to both eat a big huge meal and we were stuffed afterwards. An amazing choice of Southern Thai food, and good prices as well.
