“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2009

We were walking along the main road after having a cup of joe at the mall. This road stand, located right in front of a bank, started their charcoal up around five pm. Imagine, chicken, pork fat, perfect burned charcoal, truly matches made in heaven because they are perfectly seasoned and slowly cooked on top of flaming charcoal. Food was great. We had grilled 1/2 chicken and a fish. They also have pork ribs, intestines, short ribs, tom yum gong, and other tidbits. Moreover, the vendor has another table setup, with a gigantic mortar and pestle, to serve and a few types of fresh salads (Papaya Po Po and cucumber). Rice was fragrant.

It's not a place for the faint of heart; there will be mosquitoes, and there will be a few strayed dogs parked right next to you during the meal. They don't have table linens, and it is very rustic. Don't expect the vendor to converse you in English fluently, but they understand that not all foreigners can take wicked spicy hot like the locals.

“Best Chicken in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2009

If you are wanting to experience real thai food with a real thai atmosphere, then there is no where else! Sitting just in front of the 'Thai Military Bank' in Hua Hin just a 40metre walk from the Grand Hotel Market is 'Kai Young Hua Hin'.
You will be sitting on plastic seats with a Coke branded table, and suggest you order LEO beer...a lot better than the over rated SINGHA.
You will end up spending (including drinks) no more than THB 300-400 per person (about US$10) and that would be hard, for B250 you would be absoulely full!

Suggest you order:
BBQ Chicken
Bamboo Shoot Salad
Som Tum Thai
Nam Tok Nua (Beef)
Larb Moo (Pork)
ENJOY!!!!

“Kai Young - Hua Hin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2009

We found this great little place to eat in Hua Hin. The food is more Northern style food I am told. And very popular as you will find locals standing around waiting for a table from about 6pm.

Just a short walk up the main road from the Grand Hua Hin and night market, you will find a mobile restaurant, situated outside the TMB bank buildng from about 530pm everyday except Tuesdays. They have BBQ chicken with a secret recipe that is closely guarded. There are other meats available too. Not only the chicken the salads are senstional. They are made up fresh and the Som Tum and the bamboo salad (real jungle food) are a must try. Just make sure you let them know how much chili you can take.

Value for money and food you will be talking about long after you get home. It should not be missed when you visit Hua Hin.
