Jakkajan Seafood, Phuket…I was impressed by the atmosphere and food as I was disappointed with the prices

This is a hidden gem in Phuket. Jakkajan Seafood is made up of a handful of open-air bamboo beach huts, right along beach of the Andaman sea. It’s  great little place to grab fresh seafood, just don’t go there expecting something fancy and you will not be disappointed. Yes you eat outside on pick-nick tables that’s part of the fun and you can dress in shorts, bathers, flip-flops, sarongs, pareos, etc and eat good seafood right on the sea.

Did I just say good seafood? It needs correction. It is GREAT seafood. The Fried sand crabs with salt and chilli, fried fish with fish sauce, seafood tomyum, fried rice with crab meat and shrimps rocked me to my core. The grilled shrimps are spectacular. However, the local vegetable with dried shrimp spicy and sour shrimp paste was average fare.

The downside is that, in addition to being mouth-watering, Jakkajan Seafood is also eye-watering, thanks to the cleverness of the owner in overpricing the food just because we are foreigners.  

It’s hard to beat this place for spectacular atmosphere and excellent food and I was as impressed by the view as I was disappointed by the prices. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
