Je Ngor's Kitchen
Je Ngor’s Kitchen
If you are a regular in Bangkok, you must have already heard about Je Ngor’s stir-fried crab. If you like crab, whether it is stir-fried black pepper crab, steamed crab, wok-fried curry crab or stir-fried green onion crab, Je Ngor’s has them all. If you are a first time visitor to Bangkok, I recommend you should include Je Ngor’s Kitchen in your itinerary.
With 13 restaurants across Bangkok, Je Ngor’s Kitchen, one of Bangkok's prominent Thai-Chinese seafood restaurants, has become a symbol for affordable seafood dining. Generally when a restaurant opens many branches, odds are that the food at the flagship shop may take a dive. But Je Ngor’s has defied those odds. Although Je Ngor’s Kitchen is tourist friendly, some of Je Ngor’s branches are in the tourist area offering English menu and English spoken waitpersons, but original of Je Ngor’s recipes are spicy, so please tell your waitperson that you want mild heat or no heat at all, otherwise your tongue will be burned.
The most popular dishes in Je Ngor’s are Somtum-Poo-Kai-Dong (Thai spicy papaya salad with preserved mud crab), Boiled Prawn, Deep-fried Minced Seafood Spring-ball, Pad-Pak-Boong-Foi (stir-fried sliced morning glory/water spinach), Stir-fried Crab with Garlic and Black Pepper, Charcoal Grilled Sea Bass with Rocky Sea Salt, Four Color Seafood Hot and Sour Soup, Fried Rice with Chinese Black Olive, and Puak-Hima (deep-fried sweeten snow taro stick). Our great night with great food had all of them in the bill.
Je Ngor’s may not be the best and luxury seafood restaurant in Thailand, but Je Ngor’s shall be one of the easy and friendly seafood restaurants with a good culinary skill. Next time while transit to Bangkok, check it out!
