Baan Itsara Restaurant - Hua Hin

If the seafood restaurants in Hua Hin's bustling night market are not your thing, there are other fine restaurants in town.  Here's one Kade researched ahead of time, and we arrived early to snag a table by the water.  Baan is Thai for Home, and as you can see this restaurant is situated inside and behind an old house, giving it a unique feel.  I would rank this in my top three seafood experiences ever. Little did I know that the very next day another restaurant would ease into that upper tier.  And, in case you're curious, when Kade and I went to Bali years ago, we had what we considered the very best. But Baan Itsara Restaurant in Hua Hin made its presence felt, no doubt. I left there feeling very content, and one dish (the spicy oyster one) was off the charts. It was the first time I had tried oysters prepared that way, and I had never had that vegetable they were combined with.  Toss in a few more ingredients, seasonings and a bit of chili, and something magical is created. Talk about flavors!
