CHANTORN POCHANA (Chanthaburi)
Massaman durian curry...🤯!?!?! Awesome dishes at Chantorn Pochana (Original Branch - very important!). [Pics Above]: 1) The massaman pork with durian was delicious, just wished it was all durian...🤤; 2) an amazing stir fried fish with #cardamom stems - sooo much going on in this dish, absolutely loved it; 3) those string beans with crispy shrimp paste nuggets and fried garlic were; 4) when in Chanthaburi, try the Chanthaburi noodles - think pad thai, but with a chili-sweet sauce and crispy fried crabs ; 5) the chamung leaf and pork curry was sweet tomato goodness to the last spoonful!; and 6) ended the night with a dessert of kanom tuay - an addictive mixture of sweet pandan, and slightly salty coconut custard. This place is clearly an institution in the city. Besides the outstanding food being served, one could base this solely on the sheer number of (sweet) old Thai aunties running the restaurant. They have a small shop selling ingredients, and spices.
