Nai Mong Hoi Thod Oyster Omelette (นายหมงหอยทอด) - A Michelin Eatery @ Bangkok Chinatown [Thailand] #Michelin #oysteromelette #foodinbangkok

Bangkok is like my second home after Singapore and even though i have my usual places to visit (and eat); i am always on the lookout for new yet affordable dining establishments in the city whenever i visit!

This trip, i finally got to try Nai Mong Hoi Thod; a small eatery in Bangkok's busy Chinatown! Non-air-conditioned with foldable tables and stackable chairs; it feels just like some of the coffee shops we have in Singapore but this one is helmed by only one stall that's famous for their oyster omelette.

Put it this way; famous enough to be on the Michelin guide for both year 2018 and 2019! That's not many years right? It's because 2018 was the inaugural edition for Michelin Guide Bangkok

We chose to sit outdoors, right by the dangerous roadside, as it could be much hotter and stuffier in the little, non-air-conditioned eatery that's so close to the cooking stove.

Time to scan through the 3-page menu, which was also in English. Guess the Michelin recommendation has resulted in an influx of foreign customers curious to check out the highly-acclaimed food by professional foodies. Shall share the menu later

Crispy & Plain Oyster Omelettes
The crispy mussel omelette wasn't available and we decided to go with a small serving of both the crispy and plain oyster omelettes! First thing that caught our eyes; so many oysters and a rough count revealed about 13 on each plate!

Texture wise, i think it's obvious one was crispier than the other and personally, i definitely would prefer the crispy oyster omelette which ranked much higher in palatability and tasted more similarly to Singapore's version of oyster omelette. However, i thought it didn't have that strong douse of oyster-ness to the taste.

Key changer was the oysters; the iconic disgusting fishy taste that often overwhelmed me was manageable and for someone who would always pick out the oysters and leave them by the side of the plate, i actually let more than 10 of them slide down my throat!

Chilli sauce could definitely be improved as the garlicky kind we have in Singapore would have complemented better! It's such a waste to leave so many pieces of oysters at the end of our meal. Granted this isn't the best oyster omelette i had in my life but at only 100 baht (abut S$4) a plate; it offers the best deal for the amount of oysters!
