Most Popular Food in Hua Hin – Must-Experience Flavours in Thailand!

Located towards the northern end of the Malay Peninsular, Hua Hin is a seaside resort town on the Gulf of Thailand. A visit to this city shouldn't go without tasting the flavours of its delectable cuisine. Here are five fabulous dishes that you must try in Hua Hin.


Kan Chiang Pu Nueng

An exotic crab dish that is packed with delightful flavours, Hua Hin's steamed crab wing, or as the natives call it, Kan Chiang Pu Nueng, is a must-have dish when you're in the city. It is one of the best-loved dishes by the locals and tourists alike. It an all-time favourite appetiser dish in many restaurants in Hua Hin, although eating it can come across as quite challenging. Presented in bite-sized portions, the steamed crab wings are a hassle-free alternative to your usual crab meal. Dipping in a seafood sauce just before eating a bite of this incredibly delicious food can produce bursts of hypnotising tastes on your taste buds.


Tom Yum Goong

Spicy shrimp soup with an invitingly colourful presentation, Tom Yum Goong is a bold combination of a variety of ingredients such as fragrant lemongrass, bird-eye chillies, straw mushrooms, kaffir lime, and also lime juice. Should you happen to have your meal at one of the restaurants in Chiang Rai located within popular resorts such as Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa, make sure to try out this strikingly delicious Chiang Rai river prawn spicy soup that gives out invigorating blend of sour and spicy tastes. It is a rather refreshing delicacy that can be paired with any meal in Hua Hin.


Haw Mok Talay

A steamed seafood custard, Haw Mok Talay is prepared with sea bass along with a mélange of other seafood such as shrimp, squid, and mussels. With a delectable red curry base fused with egg yolks, seafood, and creamy coconut milk, a mixture is formed which is made flavoursome by adding a variety of sauces, sugar, thinly sliced cayenne pepper, kaffir lime leaves, and basil leaves. This mouthwatering mixture is steamed for some time, after which, it is garnished with thinly strewn cayenne pepper and kaffir lime leaves for an appetising appearance. This toothsome dish is drizzled with a few spoons of coconut milk to increase its flavour.


Som Tam Pu Ma

A hearty blend of the piquant green papaya salad from the Northeast and the blue crab native to Hua Hin, the spicy blue crab papaya salad is a crunchy appetising dish that is full of flavour! It is highly reminiscent of the well-pounded salad from the Northeast with its spicy and tangy tastes, while the chunks of luscious crab meat can make this dish pretty addictive. The locally-sourced blue crab meat tastes all the better with the myriad of spices that come into play.


Au Suan

Au Suan is a deep-fried oyster pancake, which is quite popular in Hua Hin and Bangkok as well. This dish is all the more satisfying due to its incorporation of fresh oysters. Due to the abundance of oysters at this scenic seaside resort city, Au Suan has emerged as a delightful dish that can be enjoyed at many restaurants and street food stalls in this city. The eggs and the diluted tapioca starch work wonders on the oysters on the searing hot plate and the sprinkling of oyster sauce that follows into the mixture only works towards increasing its spellbinding flavour.
