Fodor's Expert Review Lek Seafood
This unassuming storefront beneath an overpass is the sort of establishment that brings international foodies flocking to Bangkok. They come for the spicy crab salad with lemongrass, the catfish with toasted rice salad, and the fried grouper topped with chili sauce—all expertly cooked and perfectly balanced with the five flavors. The interior here is nothing special, with poor lighting and bluish walls, but the lively buzz makes up for it. Locals in the know head to Lek because it's less expensive than many other seafood places.
