Flagrant Self-Promotion Alert

No shame in shoving peppers into the gullet, even if older me will regret it

Here's a video from one place down by Sukhumvit Soi 83:

Found out about Nguan Lee back in 2008 after reading a New York Times article and have enjoyed many memorable meals at their old prime location across from Lumpini Park (Sarasin and Langsuan). Later, the place disappeared apparently after it was demolished and replaced by a skyscraper. This year staying at a Thumburi River Condos and found out the same owner has had his restaurant nearby since then - what a treat it was to see him again and enjoy his scrumptious dishes. Been there twice on this trip and although the food is scrumptious and reasonably priced, their final tally is figured out by counting dishes - so if you are cost conscious, pay attention!

A few of my favorite places/dishes whenever I'm in Bangkok:
- Kua Kling Pak Sod (the Ari branch)
- Mae Klong Hua Pla Mo Fai (Phuttamonthon Sai 4 -- this is best to stop for lunch on the way back into Bangkok from a trip somewhere, otherwise it's a long drive from central Bangkok and if you go for dinner, many dishes are sold out)
- Peking duck (if not just to watch the carving alone) and dim sum at Man Ho
- Fish-sauce fried fish and/or 5-flavor fried fish at Laem Charoen seafood (the Central World branch)
- Tom Yum Koong and pork Cha Siu at Thaokae Sheu (Baang Khla, Chachoeng Sao). Ok this is more of a day-trip trek just for food than in Bangkok as it's in another province on the outskirt of Bangkok, but combined this with a chicken and rice dish in Baan Pho and a riverside meal to finish off the day at ครัวแม่ส้มเกลี้ยง (Krua Mae Som Kleang), it's a worthwhile eating day trip (and travel time there and back is about the same as across Bangkok proper.

For special occasions:
- Sorn
- tasting menu and vegetarian option at Chakgrabongse Villa restaurant

Another spot to celebrate special occasions (if you are in the area of Bang Khae), is the Canale House. The food is delicious with reasonable prices and the service is great.

Kalpapruek on Soi Pramuan by Prince Rajani (former late King's friend and 3rd cousin) is a restaurant where they cook with ingredients and produce from the Royal Project. Again, the food is excellent, prices are reasonable, and the service is attentive. Had the fried whole seabass, roti with green curry, rice, banana cake, and iced coffee for ~ $25.

This original location (Silom/Bang Rak area) is at an unassuming building (part of the prince's residence) was established in 1975, and I prefer it over their other two location which are located at giant malls. They also have a bakery and a produce/culinary market. Seating is indoors or in a garden setting outdoors and the menu is bilingual (Thai and English). Packed during lunchtime!

Looks good! Have not been there for a long time. Fun fact, you have been right in my backyard then!

We were at the River condos for 5 weeks, an easy boat ride and a stroll from the restaurant. These photos were taken on January 12th, our final day in Bangkok - unfortunately, we are back in California since

If you like Indian food and don't mind vegetarian food, then Sugam South Indian Restaurant in the Silom area would be a good choice and worth mentioning for a light meal that won't break the bank account! For 159 THB (under $5) all in, get the 14 items menu selection which will give you spicy, sour, and sweet flavors. The food is good and the service is attentive. Not much of an ambiance, and, funny enough, the wash sink is located on the street!!!

Apologies, trying to post a link to a burger stall. Gotta reread the forum rules/doc.

I see Shake Shack have opened a restaurant in Central World. Ground floor at the north east corner. Long queues when we walked past yesterday, must have opened recently?
