Snack Jack Restaurant

Walking round the night market in Hua Hin, joining the atmosphere being a tourist enjoying the street food as much as our stomach can handle.  To the section where seafood stalls and restaurants are, you will get to see how competitive the business is over there. After walking and up down the streets, we finally decided to have a seafood feast and went into Snack Jack Restaurant. Restaurant was visibly full, packed with tourists.

We went up the 2nd level via the iron spiral stairs and after browsing through the menu, the server recommended the combo item. We all thought it was a steal to enjoy the seafood combo with a choice of steam or fried fish and decided on it. Seafood platter consists of crayfish, crabs, prawns, cockles , calms and mussels. It was quite disappointing that the crayfish was not entirely cook and most of the items were bland and tasteless unless you were to dip them into the sauce given. Perhaps the only thing that is worth eating on the plate were those prawns, at least they were cooked but on a dry side due to the style of preparation.

Seafood Combo - 650 Baht
The Snapper fish is much better and worth eating even though the taste was not really good. Herbs and Spices like lemon grass were added in the base of the fish with aluminium foil and wrapped up. I like the fish fresh but the taste again was too bland on the top side of the fish while on the other side, it was all soaked in its gravy.

Snapper Fish
The dish was awful. Felt that it was a disgrace to their national dish. Rice was not fluffy, in fact by just one look, you know the texture, color and consistency would have failed the entire dish on the spot. Taste was right below par.

Pineapple Fried Rice
Overall, it was a total disappointment. We felt that it was kind of tourist trap to have dined there. The Seafood Combo sounded a fuss free choice for tourist like me but with crowds and accommodating of the high turn over rates, the food quality was being compromised, needless to say, the service too.
