The famous Kang Ban Phe (Mantis Shrimp Noodle Soup) from Rayong can also be enjoyed in Bangkok. The mantis shrimp is a delicious type of crayfish with a sweet taste like lobster and tender meat like crab.
The Kang Ban Phe Noodle & Seafood Café is located in a hip spot in the area of Lumpini Park, near Ploen Chit BTS station in Bangkok. At the prices of around 200-250 baht per dish, it’s quite a reasonable price, given the quality; fresh mantis shrimp caught in the morning. The only downside is the small portion. If you love seafood, give it a try, but avoid rush hour (12-1 p.m) if you don’t want to queue.
