When in the coastal city of Chanthaburi, you can’t miss seafood. Home to dense mangrove forests, Tha Chalaeb area is rich in marine life and full of natural beauty. A perfect place to unwind for a day or two by the sea and dine on some of the best seafood. You’ll be spoiled for choice in Tha Chalaeb, but among all the seafood restaurants there, Pu Ja Tha Chalaeb is among the pioneers and definitely some of the best.
Going strong for half a century, Pu Ja Tha Chalaeb is a paradise for not only seafood lovers but all foodies. While the current manager is Khun Wisa, her 82-year-old mother, who’s also the founder of the restaurant, is still happy to help run the kitchen to ensure great original tastes. In addition to oceanfresh seafood, Khun Wisa, her mother, and all the local chefs expertly cook up diverse delights using Chanthaburi’s signature ingredients.
Take for example Stir-Fried Rice Noodles with Crab Meat. The especially chewy rice noodles are actually called Sen Chan in Thai, hinting its origin in Chanthaburi. Pu Ja Tha Chalaeb also serves up Crab Roe Dip, one of the best crab delights you’ll find in this seaside city. Then there’s Moo Chamuang. Flavored with chamuang or cowa leaves, the Chanthaburi’s local curry is uniquely and pleasantly sour.
