Phuket’s Freshest Seafood

Kan Eang has been recognized for its fresh signature seafood since 1973. We acquire our seafood straight from local fishermen who catch it fresh. It is a must-go place for every seafood lover both locals and foreigners who would like to try the freshest signature seafood and authentic Thai cuisine.   

Meal with a Legendary story  

Once you go to Kan Eang, there is one dish you shouldn’t miss to try. That is Grilled Jack Fish which has a great story behind it. 50 years ago, Kan Eang opened a little thatched-roof restaurant near the entrance route to Chalong Pier. Fishermen sell their freshly caught fish to the shop. Later Kan Eang’s grilled Jack Fish became famous all around the Chalong. It was the beginning of the Kan Eang restaurant today.

Pla Mong or Jack Fish is a sea fish which has a firm texture and natural sweet taste. The technique is to gently grill it with coconut husk adding a smoky flavor to the fish, allowing the fish to slowly cook, and remain juicy. Our grilled fish has a naturally sweet texture and it’s served with tamarind sauce. Kan Eang handed its signature recipes and legacy through generations and is now 51 years of age and still a place winning both local and visitors’ hearts.

Customer’s favorite signature dishes

Kan Eang’s original signature dish, which the customers love, is “Bua Tod,” a batter-fried freshwater weed with shrimp. Freshwater weed is the major component of this cuisine. They are rare plants that develop in streams with pure water running through them. We combined it with flour, cooked fresh shrimp, and served with a sweet and sour secret sauce. It is crunchy as soon as you bite and you will taste the sweetness of the fresh shrimp when you chew. Kan Eang’s secret sauce adds the perfect match to the taste which makes it a must-try meal that you should not miss.

If you would like to try the next Kan Eang signature, try “Hor Mok” which is a steamed curry fish mousse wrapped in a banana leaf parcel. It is prepared from fresh mackerel mixed with southern curry paste and the first pressed premium coconut milk which is freshly steamed daily.  Hor Mok is juicy and soft in texture and has rich and fresh flavors. It is better to eat as an appetizer or you can eat it with steamed rice too.  Whoever tries the Hor Mok can’t help trying next time.
