This is the “Kai-jeaw poo”, a signature dish at one Michelin starred “Raan Jay Fai” by the legendary “Sister Jay Fai” which I‘m sure, is on the wishlist of nearly everyone who visits this Thai street food eatery.
Only two components are found in here:

1. Crab Meat - They come in huge sweet chunks and by the truckload.

2. Egg - Used to build the omelette in painstaking layers via pouring on a tiny amount of it over the crab meat. With every addition of egg, Sister Jay Fai carefully rolls the growing omelette in the hot oil and crops off flyaway bits for neatness. All this happens in between her moving the wok on and off the charcoal fire stove to control the heat.

There is no other seasoning added in the “Kai-jeaw poo” which is why it is served with some bottled chilli sauce. I thought it tasted alright but preferred eating my crab omelette with the pickled chillies and dried chilli spice powder from the tray of condiments on our table.

Some surprises.

There were NO 3 Michelin stars given.

Innovative Indian restaurant Gaggan had 2 stars. Other 2 Michelin star were awarded to French restaurant Le Normandie and Japanese influenced Mezzaluna.

That means NO Thai restaurants in Bangkok were given 2 Michelin stars and above. (Let that sink in for a while.) Street hawker Jay Fai who cooks up a mean-dish of Drunk Noodles at Mahachai Road, was awarded a star.
Glad that I tried her signature Crab Omelette, including during my most recent trip.

😱😱😱 Raan Jay Fai serves up signature dishes like the 400 Baht (SGD$16.50) Drunken Noodles and 1000 Baht (SGD$33) Crab Omelette In A 'Normal' Coffeeshop.
Well, Martha Stewart Said “Best Cook In Thailand”. This is my 2nd time trying out Sister Mole's cooking and I must say her Drunken Noodles is very good!

But her staff said "Sister no good mood today" so I didn't dare shoot too much.
