Mongkol Farm Restaurant
Bangsan-Angsila Road, Tambol Anglila
Open 11am to 9pm, daily
The Bangsaen-Angsila Road not far from the jetty is lined with a number of restaurants, but none is more popular than Mongkol Farm, opened by a fisherman more than 30 years ago. It has an unobstructed view of the sea and is known for fresh seafood at affordable prices. The specialty is raw oysters, which is harvested straight from the sea. Locals eat it with fried shallot, and a sprig of Krathin leaves and a dash of spicy sauce. Another must-try dish is the Pla Kra Pong Tod Nam Pla, a deep-fried fish with fish sauce.

This large and unpretentious restaurant features a mix of Thai and Chinese dishes on its menu, which are well and above ordinary. These include the deep-fried fish in local sauce (pictured above), homemade deep-fried stuffed crabmeat rolls, or Hoy Jor, the baked pork knuckle with garlic, as well as the oyster omelette featuring lump oysters enveloped in egg batter.
