Introducing Somsak Pu Ob, a seafood stall with a difference that offers unique Thai/Chinese fusion dishes. The crab and prawn vermicelli is simply out of this world. The portions might be on the smaller side, so if you are hungry then order two.

Try to arrive before 5.30pm, if not be prepared to queue (trust us, it’s totally worth queuing for though!).
