Information

The only provincial eatery to make it to this year’s gastronomic top list is just 90 minute’s drive away from Bangkok. Owned and run by a sylvan lady master chef who’s neither a chitchatter nor a smiler, this rustic eating joint in Nakhon Nayok province offers, however,some of the best cuisine of the Central Plains. As its name suggests, the restaurant, located off a beaten track, is cooled by a gentle breeze from an adjacent woodland and rice paddies. And just like the many dining joints in the vicinity, the exemplary quality of food should never be compared to the ungraceful setting of nothing more than wooden tables and plastic chairs on a cement-paved verandah. Lom Choey’s menu features almost 100 dishes, prepared either in countryside-fashion or jungle-style. Don’t let the tedious food descriptions scare you away, you must order pla duk thawt nam pla, or deep-fried broadhead catfish (60 baht each), which presents a pla duk oui with its characteristic golden yellow and rich fatty meat leavened with fish sauce before being masterlydeep-fried with lots of garlic until almost every part of the fish—including the bones and fins — are crispy, edible and absolutely addictive. Other popular dishes here include grilled river prawns, deep-fried frog with garlic, and deep-fried fish with sweet and sour chilli topping. Call 037-388-467 and 085-396-2426. Open daily 10am-9pm. Cash only.
