Seafood at Ban Amphur
Whenever friends or family come to visit I always take them to eat fresh seafood at the restaurants overlooking the ocean.
My favourite establishment is called Sri Nuan and I have dined there on numerous occasions. The food is always locally sourced, good quality and well cooked.
The restaurant is extremely popular and often welcomes large tour groups, so in the evenings it can be very busy and take quite a long time to get served. I prefer to go in the late afternoon around 4 or 5 pm and as you can see from the photos, it's fairly quiet and the waiting staff aren't rushed off their feet.
The last time we frequented the establishment was to enjoy a family meal after a day of sightseeing. We ordered 7 dishes including a spicy salad with fish roe, squid cooked with onion and salty egg, fried fish with sour chilli and lime dipping sauce, garlic scallops, raw oysters with tamarind leaves, crispy shallots, garlic and chilli sauce, grilled prawns, and one of my all-time favourites, barbecued rock lobster.
