Baan Khun Por, Soi 88

Increasingly popular, this foodcourt is quite famous with locals and expats. More than 60 food stalls are providing local specialties and world food in a price range between 20-100 baht per meal. Be aware that on Fridays and Saturdays, they tend to invite famous bands to play (Carabao, Maryjuana, Topu, Kala, etc...), so it can get crowdy. Better go before 6:00pm to ensure you have a table.

My favourites : Moo Hong (braised pork), Hot Pot, Mukhata (thai barbecue), BBQ Mussels
Price range : $

Night Market

A visit to Hua Hin would not be complete without having a dinner in the night market. There is quite a wide choice of restaurants there, so my advice would be to walk first up and down the market to spot the best offering on display. Once you have made your choice, you can pick the seafood on display and ask for the preparation you like.
Tip: Seafood is usually paid by weight, so ask the price first to avoid surprises.
My favourites: Rock lobster, Softshell crabs, Tiger prawns in black pepper
Price range : $$
