Can't remember the price only for lobster but we ( 2 adults + 3 hungry kids) had a meal a few weeks ago and spent 7000 Baht for,

 

- A big lobster

- prawns

- steamed fish

- Hoy lie

- hoy clang

- hoy wan

- steamed veggie

- 5 individual birthday cakes

- 2 bottles of good wine

- numerous cokes and sprites

 

This was in King seafood....NOT my favourite but my favourite,Lobster Pot, was full...they do a better choice of wine + the food is better...OH and I don't like the woman owner of King...hate the way she ponces over "special" customers..and told her so after my second bottle :)

If you want to try crab/prawns on the beach go to TOPS and they steam/BBQ it for you...pick up a bottle of wine and head down to the beach..

 

If you are in a condo head up to Naklua fish market buy your own crab / prawns etc and get your TG to cook it for you!!

As I recall from days in Bangkok,,,,the only lobster I could find was at the upscale restaurants, and although they had very expensive prices and good sauces, butter, etc....,,,rock lobster was the only available,,,,,,I have always found it to be to stringy, chewey, and a bit strong "fishy" taste......

In Nang Nual (walking street) which is the most expensive in town it is about 2000/kg. I think our "mediterranean" lobsters (I am Italian) taste better though. Try tiger prawns instead, they cost about the same, 1800 to 2000/kg in the tourist area (much less in thai restaurants) but in reality you get much more meat because the part you have to discard is lighter and the taste is just wonderful, better than lobster IMHO. Get them barbecued of course!!

If you go to thai restaurants where locals go, tiger prawns go for 600/kg or less, sometimes they are smaller but taste just great and are a REAL bargain at that price. Last week I had ten (TEN!) midsize prawns (wonderful) 2 beers and stir fried mixed vegetables for 500 baht in one of these places. In Italy it would be around 4 times that or more. Enjoy!!

we had a grilled lobster, a noodle, rice and soup dish and 2 drinks for 1050 bt from Marine seafood outside Coyotees - it was lovely :)

 

I've always thought the better deal with lobster was to go for the smaller 'rock lobster', they don't look too good when not cooked (grey with no head) but they're lovely, expecially as a thermidor. MMmmmmmmmmm.

 

Try them next time.

Can you give me some more info on TOPS? When I take my first trip next May what I would like to do is go to the local seafood markets and get my own lobster, prawns, crab etc. then find some place that will steam/BBQ them up for me with a little melted butter to go with. Is this what TOPS will do? If not, are there places that will? How much is generally charged to cook seafood you brought and give you some melted butter or other sauce on the side?

 

I'm planning on staying at the Pattaya Bay Resort. Will the restaurant at the hotel you're staying at do this for you?

I'm new so this might sound stupid but what does TG stand for?

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
