Nothing like consistency eh. The above poster says Sept 29 to Oct 1, and the TAT link says 25 - 27 August.

Does it really matter what dates, there are restaurants galore in HH so what extra does this bring to the town.

In fact nothing regarding food. It's a shopping opportunity and having a beer at open air and listening music.

If you want to attend the event I would say that dates are kind of essential. This was on The Nation's website:


Get stuffed in Hua Hin
The Hua Hin Food Festival this Friday to Sunday in Queen’s Park brings together famous restaurants, popular hotels and clubs, setting up booths offering a huge variety of tasty snacks and creative delicacies.

Tuck in while watching the contests – ice sculpture, fruit carving and, of course, cooking – and cultural performances. Learn more from the TAT Prachuap Khiri Khan office at (032) 513 885.

The way I read it is that it's at Queen's Park which is also known as 19 rai. Not the canal road. Plus it states this coming Friday to Sunday (25th - 27th).
That agrees with the TAT website quoted earlier.

I mentioned the 2 billboards at 2 locations, but it's at 19 Rai of course.

I went to this a few years ago and wasn't impressed at all. I didn't bother again until this evening, and wow, it was fantastic.

We tried a couple of places - the Anantsila's Mexican food. I had a Chili Con Carne, which was probably as good as I've ever had My son had a burger and some crab cakes, which he said was excellent. 3 non-alcoholic cocktails and a green tea - incredible value at just 210 Baht. OK, portion sizes were not huge, but adequate.

Next we tried an Indian place that is coming to Takiab soon. A couple of portions of Tandoori Chicken and Nan Bread - 120 Baht. Really tasty.

We had a few other treats including ice cream, Isaan Sausage, Papaya Salad, Crispy Eggs, just to name a few. 4 of us spent under 700 Baht between us, and had plenty to eat, and it was quality food.

I'm already looking forward to next year.
