[HUA HIN] Som Moo Joom (Breakfast) / Jek Be-Ak Seafood (Dinner) Restaurant @ Thailand

After back from Hua Hin Hills Vineyard at 7pm, we headed to Jek Be-Ak Restaurant for a dinner fest. This restaurant has 2 operation time and hence 2 names as well. It is known as Som Moo Joom in the morning and Jek Be-Ak Seafood Restaurant at night, offering different meals to its patrons.

The restaurant is tucked in a wooden house without name, and it is located at intersection between Dechanuchit Road and Naeb-Khehars Road, just across Hua Hin night market and opposite of 7-11 and Mata Pita souvenir shop. It is definitely a gem at Hua Hin and you will not regret if you get your stomach filled here during dinner time.

We were lucky to find a seat in the restaurant when we reached at 7:30pm as we were told the restaurant is quite popular among the local. The queuing may take up to half an hour sometimes. The owner speaks simple English and the menu is bilingual – Thai and English hence ordering was not a big problem.

The popularity of soup sukiyaki style can be judged by the presence of a hotpot on almost everyone’s table. We picked seafood for soup sukiyaki (160 baht) and the portion is just nice for 2 persons. The broth was clear and exhibited a slight natural sweet taste and cooking it with all the ingredients turned the soup to become flavorful. Dipping the seafood to the chili sauce mixed lemon provided was a great sensation.

Another notable dish would be Steamed glass noodles with prawn (170 baht). Though the appearance was not appealing but the taste was superb. The vermicelli has a distinctive sweetness by the method of cooking with its special sauce, and the vermicelli was smooth as glass, just as the name suggested.

We also had fried soft shell crab with black pepper (170 baht). A generous amount of soft shell crabs were served and it was an enjoyment to have so many soft shell crabs at once to savour.

Often heard that black coffee and milk tea (20 baht) is a must try at Thailand hence we ordered these two drinks. The coffee has a decent aroma of coffee seeds while the milk tea was different compared the one we had in Malaysia.

The restaurant closes before 8:30. At 8:15pm, all the workers were seen busy cleaning and packing everything for business closure. It was like a war field within that matter of few minutes and suddenly the restaurant turned out to be total clean. They did not rush us to finish the dinner but we were at the only table left at about 8:20pm. Hence, always be here early or you may regret your stay at Hua Hin for missing out such a nice meal.

In the morning the restaurant served a variety of rice with dishes and noodles to its patrons. Roasted red pork with sweet sauce, with rice (35 baht) has thin slices of pork with its own sweet sauce that enhanced the flavour. It was almost identical to the usual one we see in Malaysia.

We thought duck and chicken, served with rice (40 baht) might be too heavy for a breakfast but the taste was worth the calories gained. A simple dish with tender chicken and duck, slightly flooded with the sauce, it is a great choice to equip yourself with energy for a full day trip at Hua Hin.

  1. Wow, the food at this place is really looking delicious. I am a big time foodie and I love trying different foods from different cultures but food served at Las Vegas restaurants is my all-time favourite.

  2. Yes, the food is definitely a hit and well reflected Thailand seafood cooking style. Recommended to try it if you come to Hua Hin.

    We hope to get the opportunity to travel to Las Vegas in future, and try out the food there. We don't love eating?
