Hua Hin Koti
Across from the night market, this Thai-Chinese restaurant is a national culinary luminary. Thais adore the fried crab balls, while foreigners swoon over đôm yam gûng (shrimp soup with lemon grass). And everyone loves the spicy seafood salad (yam tá-lair) and deep-fried fish with ginger. Be prepared to queue for a table.
