Fresh fish and cocktails at the Hua Hin night market

December 30, 2007

Our first stop in Thailand was Hua Hin, a coastal town to the south west of Bangkok which has a fantastic night market, complete with all the standard market stalls – clothes, jewellery, DVDs, trinkets, plus lots of fresh fish stalls, where you can choose your fish to be cooked there or take it away with you.

Snapper, crab, mackerel and massive, meaty tiger prawns bigger than a chihuahua are all freshly caught and then laid out on ice at the market stall.

This tiny cocktail bar occupying a stall in the market was complete with a full selection of spirits and a very capable barman who mixed each drink with vigour!

My first Pina Colada of the holiday. Perfectly mixed, and a snip at only 80 baht!

Mr Rice normally goes for manly cocktails but this time as a special treat he went for a cheeky Mai Tai in a cheeky ‘lady’ glass.

Recipe for Mai Tai
1 part dark rum
1 part amaretto
3 parts orange juice
3 parts pineapple juice
1 dash grenadine
