Smoky and spicy soup of seafood with tamarind juice and herbs.

We assume not many people have heard of the name of this soup before Tom khloang talay.  It is seafood based and is using tamarind and lime to make the soup fairly sour.  If you got fed up with those spicy red hot chilli taste in Bangkok, this may be good for you.  You can also make it less sour spicy if you don't like to have too much tamarind when you order.  When we first had the soup from Ruen Urai, we were stunned how such a small restaurant in a hidden street could serve such high standard dish with a great ambiance both inside and outside.  It surely became our "must go" place in Sala Daeng for a reasonable and fine local food.
