That’s the original restaurant. Yes, that’s the old one. Yes. It’s closed now. And this is their new restaurant. It’s much bigger. The restaurant itself is not big,
but the space around can be a football field. It’s so big. It has been rewarded with
Wongnai’s best restaurant for 4 years. They also got it in 2020,
but they haven’t got the sign yet. This is the original one.
They were like this in 2011. But 9 years later it became like this. He did make a good life for himself. – It’s a tradition.
– Yes? There will be a sign in front of the restaurant that’s rewarded. It feels so calm when having a fountain in front of the house. The water’s coming out from here. It’s one of the believe. Still water. What about this? Stood water. Running water. Stood water. Oh, still water and stood water. Still water, stood water. Do you get it, San? I don’t get it. Our CEO is so bold. She asked them to have a kitchen tour. Hello, the chef is here. Hello. My name’s Kritsada. (Owner) Oh, mr. Kritsada. For the food to be more delicious, we have to see the process. This one is tomahawk? Yes, it is. How many people is it for? Around 4-5 people. Today we have Taraba crab souffle with truffle, special for you. Normally we don’t put truffle in this menu, but today we will make it specially for you. Thank you. Where did you graduate from? RMUTK, it’s around Yannawa. Did you study about food? Foods and Nutrition. I did my bachelor at Suan Dusit University. I had worked abroad for many years,
then I came back to open my own restaurant. Suan Dusit is famous for its foods faculty, right? Look, we’re bad guys. We’re hurting our fans again. I guess you’re watching this at around 10-11 pm. It doesn’t look yummy at all. She’s licking her mouth. Wow, onion. Did you marinate the beef? It’s a dry aged beef. A dry aged beef. What’s the meaning of dry aged? It’s to age the meat to break down the connective tissue in the muscle which will make the beef more tender. So this is Taraba crab. Yes. It’s a bit spiny. We have 2 menus which are souffle and baked bacon. The baked bacon menu is cooked with Thai style. It tastes sour, sweet and spicy. Not too rich. When people eat Western style food… It’s too creamy and rich. Exactly, sometimes people don’t wanna eat it. I want you to try my spaghetti and also the other menus at this restaurant. I’m Thai, so I like the taste of Thai foods. But I like Western food for its decoration as well. So I mixed them together. So it became this restaurant. My back feels so hot. Wow, so big. We won’t get the meat out from this side of the leg, we will do it on the other side so that the shape is still pretty,
and we can take a nice photo of it. And it’s easy to eat, you can only use fork. When they’re perfectly grilled,
I’ll put some wine on them to make them smell less fishy. Look at the color. The meat color is gold. A golden meat. Luckily, San doesn’t like crab that much. Hey, I like crab! I like it. – I remember you don’t like crab.
– I do! You’re the one who has allergy to crab. You had an allergy test,
I know that you’re allergy to crab. Allergy to crab (pu) ? He’s allergy to Pu Pongsit. Yeah, everytime I listen to his song I have to dance. What the… Combo They’re baking it like this? Mr. Takeshi, he already put the meat in the oven. Whoa, he put the whole frying pan in the oven. The temperature we use is 200 degree Celsius. And 10 minutes. That’s only 200 degree Celsius? Only 200 degree Celsius. We’ll be back in 10 minutes. [Taraba crab] This is a special cream he made for us. This sauce is made of mushroom
stir fried with cream, butter and white wine sauce. Then cool it down a bit. So that when we mix it with egg white
it will not be cooked. When we bake it, it will rise. You can smell the truffle. Give the camera to smell it. I really like truffle. I usually eat spread as breakfast. – Truffle spread on bread. What’s spread? Spread is spread. It looks like jam. Truffle spread? Yes, I used to company’s money to buy it. Talking about Souffle, Thai people might not know it. It’s a bouncy cake. Wow, put it on the crab? It smells so good. I understand why this restaurant has so many customers. The portion is very big. – Look, that’s a lot.
– It’s huge. [Good inspirational words from Mr. Kritsada] Actually I’m not that good. I just love to try new things. How many years have you been doing this restaurant? It’s gonna be 10th anniversary this April. My first thought was that I didn’t want to work in an office. I just wanted to stay with my family. I only wanted a small restaurant with 3 tables. I don’t know why I’m at this point right now. I had a dream and I tried to follow it. Then we just put the rest of the egg yolk and top it. Wow, looks like cake that’s going to be baked. There it goes. Wow, the plate is so huge. This is a decoration zone. The kitchen wasn’t that fancy. He’s a Thai style chef. Wow, he’s using Thai lotus. The decorating style is to leave
all the space and place the food here. Yes, Italian style. Eat less meat, eat more plate. You jerk. What is this? They look like small fried eggs. It’s a mayonnaise mixed with mustard. Eat it with meat,
its taste is not too rich. Look at the plate decoration style. The secret of their success is nothing but good food and the care for customers. The chef just told me that sometimes
the customers complained that they took too long time for decoration. It really takes time, but you know why? The chef is so careful. If one leg falls down, he will need to do it again. Here it is. Wow, it’s actually a souffle. It looks like an omelet. He said there are no boundaries for his foods. Because he loves mixing things together. The kitchen is not perfect, but the foods are perfect. How much is this plate? Around 2,000 Baht. But you’ll get the whole crab. Special price for us, he will charge us 20,000 Baht. With 10-month installment plan. You pay, Kan. I’ll pay it with our team’s salary. You should take an insert at this moment. Sure. This is the specially made cream sauce. He said a normal cream is very rich in flavor. – But his special sauce…
– Ouch, it’s hot. You’ll like it, Kan. I don’t eat spicy food. Wow, I like this one. He didn’t put it on the meat. They’re separated. In case anyone wants to try. How are we gonna finish this? You should sit here with us. Bomb. Wow. I can’t choose. According to the reviews I’ve read, they said this one is delicious. I don’t know why a recommended menu is a spaghetti. I think it’s their signature. This black spaghetti is their signature dish. It’s not too rich. Not too rich, it tastes good. Just like Mala, even though it’s hot, I still want to eat it. This is a river prawn spaghetti. It’s not just a normal river. What river? It’s from a river near Rama II. That’s not funny. It’s hot. It’s hot and spicy. It’s like eating a creamy spicy stir fried. It tastes weird. Who love eating Western food and also Thai food, you must really like this restaurant. [Huge] It’s Korean chicken. Looks so fantasy. If the waitress brings this menu out, you’ll get all the attention. Chef said he is bored of round plates. Because lots of restaurants use round plates. So there are different style of plates on this table. I must say they so use lots of plates. How do I eat that? You got it. Wow, sparkling eyes. Spicy. sparkling eyes. The sauce are all over the plate. Lots of menu are spicy. Wow, spicy. Wow, the best. Better than eating at Korea. My specially cooked crab. – Who cooked it?
– The chef. It looks like an omelet. Like an omelet. Let me try. Souffle and mushroom sauce. Wow, so good. It’s an omelet with truffle sauce. If the chef can find Termite Mushroom, he will use it. What should I eat first? How should I eat it? Put it down. She put so much effort on cracking them. Bomb told me to. Not me, Ri is the one who put it on my plate. I’m joking. Let me see your reaction. Truffle smells very nice. I want someone who crack it for me. Can you hear that? I’m a tall guy, I’m not a dwarf.
(‘to crack’ sounds like ‘dwarf’ in Thai) They might think that you’re a selfish person. They don’t know that actually
San is the one who crack the crab for everyone. Right, guys? Look, she took all the meat. Today she will show you how she really is. I’m a selfish person. Some might say that why didn’t San share food with the team. Look. Look. The food are gone. We didn’t film it. Why am I the one who’s holding a camera? Why are there lots of crab shell over there? Kan ate them and put them in my plate. Your fingers are all dirty. They just served this menu. Wow, lobster. It’s bigger than San’s hand. Compare it to my pinky finger.. Shaking hands. The meat is so firm and sweet. It doesn’t taste like seafood. So firm and chewy. You took more than 5 bites. You still haven’t finish it? The beef for masculine men. Oh my god. This is a normal portion that we usually eat. Who haven’t eat beef for a long time… or has been on diet come to this restaurant, it’s really worth it. Look. It’s so pink. Dry aged for 15 days. It’s really nice, it’s not too moist, it’s dry. This one is a Western style
and this one is a spicy sauce. This one must be salt. And this is mustard. Hold on. How is it? Umm, full taste. – Full taste?
– Yes, it has the taste of Thai. [We’re starting to be full] [The menu that no one cares had shine its light] It surprised me. Before I feel so stuffed, I thought we don’t have to eat this. It was just a seasoned potato. It’s so delicious. The texture of potato peel is crispy and chewy. Sweet. So rich in flavor. When eating it with steak, so great. It’s so good. It’s sprinkled with paprika powder. So delicious. It’s really delicious. Here’s the reaction. I like this menu the most. Really? Look, this is the reality. The real steak lovers are here. Masculine men like us love steak. But when we don’t have money we always eat Thai BBQ. – Am I right?
– You’re right. [10 minutes passed] We have to take them home. We gave up, we really can’t eat them all. But I must admit, this one is really good. A normal grilled potato. I’m so stuffed. Tomahawk is really huge. He really likes steak. He’s still eating. He keeps cutting it. He has been cutting it since 30 minutes ago. Let’s wrap it up,
Kritsada steak is a good restaurant. No wonder why it won the award for 4 years in a row. Do you know what’s great about it? 1. The plate They use lots of them. Lots of plates. The second great thing is
mashed potato which is in every menu. There are mashed potato in every menu. They use mashed potato as glue to attach
the sauce cups to the plates. If you want to eat more mashed potato, you can eat what’s left under the cup. So cool. Lots of side dishes and sauces and the chef is creative. The chef treat us for today. Really? Yes. How much does it cost? I saw it a bit. Let’s see it over there. Thank you very much, mr. Kritsada. We’re so full today. Sooooo full. We’re waiting for everyone here at Phrapradaeng. What makes you become you as today? Maybe it’s because of my determination. But more than that, it’s my passion. Some menus don’t make much profit. Some ingredients are very common
but it looks good when we mixed it with the Western style. I want people to eat real Thai flavor
of sour, sweet and salty. You want to be different? Yes, I do. The food bill for today. Yes. Total amount is 7,552 Baht. But we paid 0 Baht. Thank you so much. We even take it home. Thank you very much. Thank you. Please come again when you’re free. We will. Bye bye.
