  • Jumbo (Thai-Chinese Seafood)

    ...on the ground floor of Siam Icon with a nice view of the river and docking boats. We tried the fried seafood vermicelli with shredded leek and cabbage, stir-fried spinach with garlic, tofu squares with spinach skin and crab topping and finally, the star: mocha pork ribs (somehow, a chocolaty-coffee flavor goes well with pork). Dessert was free because I paid with the right credit card: fresh mango over shaved ice with colored taro balls. Asahi beer and barley water to accompany.

    Fine, but how much nicer was it than stuff you can get from a decent market? How much more exxxy?

    I love that stir fried spinach & garlic btw. Why is it so hard to find in Thailand?

      a) Much nicer: dishes prepared by professional chefs on demand and with fresh ingredients...odd question (imo). b) Much more expensive than food courts, fresh markets, etc. Comfortable setting, great river view, excellent service, and well-prepared dishes are worth the money (imo). c) The spinach dish is widely available at the restaurants we call for dinner delivery on the weekends. I don't know why you find such a simple and popular preparation difficult to find.

        Not kidding- that bluddy spinach dish, which was a staple in HK, was hard to find in Pattaya and near impossible in Isaan. I gave people earache about it.
