Ratchanonsee Seafood, Bangkok…..the suckling pig is a work of art. This is the mona lisa right here

“And on the Seventh Day, before God rested…He made Ratchanonsee Seafood and asked them to create barbeque suckling pig – Honggong style.”

Okay, so maybe it REALLY didn’t exactly happen like that in the big book; maybe that’s hovering my foot over that invisible line that we all love to cross every now and then.  BUT!  I can tell you that this was really a heavenly experience from beginning to end.  This place is the Alpha and Omega of what is defined as REAL suckling pig. It is INSANELY good. INSANELY. It’s sweet, the crispy skin was roasted perfectly, covering a surprisingly generous portion of tender porcine goodness and super juicy. Very little fat too. Love it.

To be honest, I haven’t tried many of their other dishes. Their suckling pig is all I need. I’ve sampled the deep fried pastry prawn fish, garoupa fish deep fried with chilli sauce and oyster omelette. All three were tasty but not nearly as mind-blowing, life-changing, paradigm shift causing as their suckling pig.

One word of caution…don’t expect a restaurant environment. It’s far from it. And oh yes, CASH ONLY. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
