It's spicy, but it's not overwhelmingly spicy. But
it definitely kicks you in the mouth like wakes you up first thing in the morning This is like Thai nasi kerabu
almost precisely. Plate of raw veggies with the nam prik
kapi to go with it, chili paste. This is really food heaven right here in Krabi In Krabi Town. Food heaven. This Krabi City
Night Market. You have to come if you love food. We are here at the morning market. Maharaj Morning
Market. It's time for some action, so let's go. Saw this stall right here making the
khanom jeen – a classic breakfast here in Krabi. It's the rice noodles and they pour
a curry on top. She said this one's very spicy, so I'm excited for it.
Smells amazing. It just smells so
aromatic. There's minced fish in here, it's very peppery, definitely smells spicy and funky. I'm all about it.
They give you all this fresh veggies to go with it. It's a whole platter of fresh veggies you could
put in herbs. Basil, long beans, eggplant, cucumber. You have the thin rice noodles topped with
curry. They say this one's very spicy, let's see. It smells spicy. It also smells incredibly flavorful.
I smell the galangal right away. Very sharp flavor, peppery. Let's see. You see this a lot on the street,
but really excited to have this in the market. Whoa! That really kicks you
in the mouth in a good way. Aroy mak! I love it! It's spicy. but it's not overwhelmingly spicy, but
it definitely kicks you in the mouth. Like wakes you up first thing in the morning.
I'm a little tired, kind of early for me and not used to getting up this early, but this woke me up.
One? One. Now this next spot is what we stumbled
upon walking after having our first dish. It reminds me so much of laing – taro leaves um
dish. Okay here you go. Looks delicious we're huge fans of veggies cooked in coconut milk. So we
saw this we just stumbled on it we had to get it . This looks delicious. I actually see pieces
of fish in here too. Adds a whole other layer and we're big fans of this kind of dish. Got a
bowl of rice to go with it too. Let's try it out. Smells really… Spicy? Earthy. Mmm That's a pretty complex flavor.
It's creamy you really get that fish kick in there too. I really
like that. It's not overwhelming. It does have a little bit of spice on the back
end. I can feel it in the back of my throat now. Greens have a slight bitterness
to them too.
Not overwhelming, but combine that all together the creamy, spicy, slightly
salty, bitter in a slight way with that fish flavor. Much more than what meets the eye when you
first see it. It has that dried fish taste. Yeah and then you mix it with your rice
oh it's another level of deliciousness. The grandma making it – she's so sweet. Yeah she keeps smiling. This just tastes like this food tastes like a grandmother made it for sure. It's got
that soulful slow-cooked with love flavor to it. That's the thing with a market like this too. You just stroll around
all the different basically aisles. We strolled through all the aisles of vendors here which
is part wet market, part prepared food market.
Ooh stink beans. One of our favorite Thai dishes period it's hor mok.
The steamed fish, kind of like a custard. It's steamed and wrapped in banana leaves and
this one's got a really nice yellow color. It's very soft this one. It reminds us a
lot of we eat in Malaysia a lot that we love – otak otak. It's almost like a Thai
version of that, or you can say that otak otak is the Malaysian version of
hor mok, whatever you want to say. The beauty of this – that yellow color. It's just
so soft. I can't even help it anymore.
I gotta take a bite. We've had a few different hor mok here in Krabi
Town, but this one is really my favorite so far because the flavors really explode from that first
bite. You really taste that turmeric, you taste that lemongrass, you get some chili, lime leaves.
You see the actual shreds of lime leaves in here. Galangal. There's so much going on in here. It
packs so much flavor for such a little bite. Even though it's very soft, there are pieces of
the fish in there as well. So it's like a puree, but there's also chunks of the fish which I
really like. I really appreciate that texture. I think I'm taking one of this to go. Yeah. Flower section. Dried fish. The Maharaj Morning Market is the largest of its kind in
Southern Thailand. You see that it's huge. You have part wet market. So fruits, veggies, meats,
seafood and you have prepared food section as well. Awesome must-visit here in Krabi Town. It's
definitely a place if we got up early enough every day, if we were early risers, we would probably
come here every morning for breakfast.
That's how cool it is. We came a little later, so
some of the stalls were finished, but we still got ourselves some delicious breakfast here.
And another beauty, you could always come here and get a different meal every morning. That's
how many vendors there are. Can even come if you have your own apartment kitchen you can come
and get all the ingredients and make your own meal too. It's the Krabi City Market. Opens
in the afternoon until night time. They say it's a "night market," but you
could actually get there a little earlier too. This stall right here is a real gem. It's a rice and
curry stall. You walk right in and you can't miss it. It's serving Halal Thai food. There's a big
spread of about 10-12 different curries. You can get it over rice. You get two curries
over rice for 50 baht, which is unbelievable They also gave you this beautiful raw veggie
set right here. You get the long beans, cucumber, greens and you get the nam prik, chili dip right
here. Man it's really hard to choose what to get. Been here – this is actually the third or fourth trip
That's how much we love this place. A nice lineup of dishes. We have the kua kling,
which is the minced chicken with all these different spices like a dry curry. There's a fried
fish. And I have my liver, I have dried fish and curry. Turmeric. That's the thing – they don't
give you the names of what the dishes are. You just got to look at them. A
few we knew already just from eating around here before. And we also have this stingray
curry, which looks amazing. We actually got it on the side. It's an extra. Krabi City Night Market
it really opens up – this stall actually opens up at one o'clock. We asked them. It depends.
When they run
out of food, they run out of food. It smells absolutely incredible. The kua kling
is amazing. Minced chicken, there's so many shreds of lime leaves in here. It's got a real
kick to it, but not overly spicy. It pairs perfectly with that rice. I mean kua kling really
is one of my favorite Thai dishes period. It's really popular here in South Thailand.
It is amazing. Now let's try this stingray. Mmm. They cleaned this one very well. Yeah
Just had a bite. No ammonia taste. Very soft and tender. Really well prepared Gravy's interesting. It's like
a brownish gravy. Probably turmeric. Nice chili flavor. Yeah nice chili kick in there. More veggies and we
have pineapple. We have more veggies Looks really interesting. Very excited to try
it. It looks in a way – it looks a lot like nasi kerabu we had in Malaysia. There's a lot of
shredded herbs in here mixed with the rice. Long beans. Let's see. Even has
that kind of aroma.
Very similar This is like Thai nasi kerabu almost
precisely. This one has a stronger lime leaf taste. Really get that raw fresh vegetable mixed with the
rice. So you get that crunchiness of the long beans, red onions, you go with that freshness of the herbs.
This is amazing! I'm so glad she pointed it out for us. Nasi kerabu is a dish that is very famous in the
Northeast state Malaysia state of Kelantan, which is the border of Thailand. So when you cross the
border, you're in Narathiwat Thailand, South Thailand. A little further east of here. This is a dish I'd
come back over and over again for it. For sure. This market is just full of amazing food. We're
only two stops in and I could already declare it. Maybe one of my favorite markets ever. For the amount
of food here, for the variety, flavor. It's excellent. Even if it's only a few stalls, just
what each stall is offering is incredible. Try some of this biryani.
Very yellow color. Smells quite cinnamony. Clovey like I would think
a biryani is. Clovey. I guess a new word right. It's good. Different than the other
biryani we have tried. Definitely not the Indian style biryani. Closer to Malay style
biryani we had in Batu Pahat, Johor. But still different and unique in its own way.
Has that kind of sweetness to it. But nice. Especially like with that beef. The beef
pairs really nicely with it. I like the biryani, but I'm really digging this khao yam.
This is like – I'm so happy that we found this. Another rice and curry stall. Actually
right down from the first one we tried. We walked around the mark a little bit
and this one's got a whole different variety of curries.
I only saw maybe one or two
that were similar to the first stop, which is amazing. So you have two spots here that have maybe
20 or 30 curries in total you can choose from. Crazy choices. Really hard to choose
actually. Gotta narrow it down just to two. That's how much room we have left for now. So
we have one which is the chicken curry. It's dry, but it has chopped up long beans and it has one of my
favorite – stink beans aka sator aka petai aka deliciousness. We also have this beef curry here. Sp
we're gonna switch it up a little bit we haven't had beef. It looks like a wetter curry it comes with
this little baby green eggplant really interesting. I'm almost full so I'm just gonna
watch him eat it. It looks delicious. Oh it's good! The baby eggplants really interesting. It gives it
kind of a bitter taste. It's crunchy. It does look like a pea though. I'm really digging on this
beef curry so it's got that nice coconut milk slightly sweet flavor of beef you counteract that
with that crunchy slightly bitter baby eggplant. What I came here for is this chicken with the stink
I'm a stink bean fanatic. It pairs nicely with the tender chicken and even more crunchy.
Look – some more vegetables the chopped long beans. You have your vegetables everywhere. We've got another plate
of raw veggies with the nam prik kapi to go with it – the chili paste. Oh this is really food
heaven right here in Krabi in Krabi Town. Food heaven. This Krabi City Night Market. You have
to come if you love food. Food like this come here..
