You’ve seen oyster omelettes before. But not like this. It could be the best oyster omelette I’ve tasted yet in Bangkok, capable of converting the most oyster-phobic to its crunchy, briny charms.
Order it here: Nai Mong Hoi Thod (539 Soi Prapachai), which gives you the option of oysters or mussels, crispy or soft (both 65 baht apiece). The choice of oysters or mussels is up to you (although in my opinion, duh, oysters) but you MUST go for extra-crispy (grob grob) for this dish to really take hold of your tastebuds. And it will: more of an oyster-topped crepe, the oysters are fresh and soft and redolent of the sea, and the “omelette” crackly and thin, like a mini-pizza. A marriage of contrasts, bonded by a sweet chili dipping sauce.
