They have a wide collection of recipes to satisfy your taste buds when you are in holiday mood. And best of all, you can have any of these street food style menus without breaking the bank.
1. Thip Samai Pad Thai
Looking for the best pad Thai in Bangkok? Thip Samai Pad Thai, aka Ghost Gate (Pratu Pee), will serve you like nowhere else. Using only the fresh ingredients, the dishes are prepared on charcoal at high heat. Taking the health conscious foodies in mind, they avoid serving oily foods without sacrificing the moisture of the food. While enjoying the high flavored pad thai coated with a thin cocoon of egg, don’t miss the chance of tasting their orange juices made of 100% fresh organic fruits.
2. Jae Fai Restaurant
Next to Thip Samai Pad Thai, here is another local Thai restaurant you would never want to miss! True, their crab omelet is way more pricey than any other local food items found in Thailand. But considering the items (delicious river prawns along with the large slices of white crab meat) included in the dish, it seems barely expensive. Other famous dishes are – crunchy noodle seafood rad na and drunken noodles.
3. Wattana Panich Restaurant
While passing the Ekkamai Road during your vacation, a huge stewing pot could be an attractive reason for your peeking inside the Wattana Panich Restaurant. And after taking the braised beef dipped in rich gravy in your mouth, you’ll never regret pausing your journey thereby. The secret behind that awesome flavor? Small goji berries, cinnamon and star anise – these Chinese herbs are the prime ones. You can also choose the noodle types that comes with this 80-100 baht dish. Goat meat will cost minimum 200 baht.
4. Lek Seafood Silom
What would be more entertaining than sipping on a glass of icy beer sitting on a plastic chair keeping your back at the noisy Narathiwat Road? You can experience such an exotic atmosphere in Lek Seafood Silom. Mouthwatering plates of seafood – chili crab, different types of shellfish, steamed catfish with chili and lime, as well as spicy and sour tom yum seafood soup – are the most appealing dishes here. Their English menu card makes it easier for the foreign food lovers to choose from.
5. Sabai Jai Gai Yang
Don’t blame your instincts if the appetizing pictures of dishes on their menu card make you bewildered while choosing your favorite one. Not to be surprised, all their dishes be it Gai Yang (grilled chicken), larb pork salad or grilled liver and fresh papaya salad, never come an inch different from their picture on the card.
