Monster 1.1 kg Lobster in Hua Hin, Thailand at Lung Ja Seafood Restaurant (ร้านลุงจ่า)
The last time we visited Hua Hin, Thailand, I had no intention to eat a lobster. But then it happened, and I could not resist. Click here for the particulars – http://www.eatingthaifood.com/2013/08/lung-ja-seafood-lobster-hua-hin-night-marketplace/
There is a street in Hua Hin, that at evening, turns into a evening marketplace. There are all sorts of the usual vendors that sell t-shirts and jewelry, and tiny snacks to nibble on…. and then, there are the epic seafood vendor that attempt to lure you in for a lobster, monstrous prawns, fish, and every little thing else delicious from the sea. So with no intention of really eating a lobster on this fine evening in Hua Hin, we got sucked and I felt the irresistible pull to order a monstrous 1.1 kg lobster – but I wasn’t complaining! Has that ever happened to you?
Anyway, we sat down at Lung Ja Seafood Restaurant (ร้านลุงจ่า), a restaurant I would advocate as 1 of the top restaurants in Hua Hin. It really is situated proper along the street within the Hua Hin night industry, and they have a nice selection of seafood and some extremely nice staff as properly. We chose our lobster with precision and then it to the table to wait as they prepared it. The lobster is 1st blanched ahead of getting tossed on the grill. The chef had informed us that that is the way to cook it for maximum flavor and to guarantee the lobster isn’t rubbery, but rather soft and tender and juicy.
Along with out monster 1.1 kg lobster in Hua Hin, Lung Ja Seafood Restaurant (ร้านลุงจ่า) also served an award winning plate of fried morning glory vegetable and a great plate of khao pad boo (crab fried rice). Both of the sides dishes were superb, but they had been dwarfed by my anticipation of the lobster.
The lobster arrived on a massive plate, covered in a number of different sauces. Order once again, and I would have gotten it with the sauces on the side, to be able to really taste the unique flavor the the lobster, but that becoming mentioned, the sauces had been fairly great and did not overpower the meaty flesh.
