The food in Ko Lanta is largely tourist focused, so everywhere we’ve eaten has been good and decent, but not amazing.  Krua Kritsana was recommended to us by our divemaster and it’s a 5 minute drive north of our hotel.  The first time we went, we took a nice walk along the beach to get there.  Mike saw a big crab on the sand and couldn’t resist finding a stick and poking it, poor thing! (He does the same thing with stranded jellyfish on the sand).  Boys will be boys.

We’ve eaten at Krua Kritsana twice because there is one dish there that keeps us coming back.  The crispy pork laab salad!  The flavors are so perfect.  It’s minced pork fried up and tossed with lime, cilantro, shallots, garlic, fish sauce, chili pepper, and green onions.  So amazing.

We also got a few curries there that were also tasty.  Highly recommended!
