    If you didn’t eat boat noodles in Thailand, did you really go to Thailand? Famed for its boat noodles with rich broth and premium beef, Thong Smith is a favourite among locals and tourists. Their boat noodles are served in several combinations, generally in spicy broth or dry, with beef or pork. A good place to chill out after a long day on the busy streets.

    Phed Mark

    Phed Mark specialises in a famous Thai comfort food called Pad Kaprao, a stir-fried dish combining holy basil (kaprao), minced meat, garlic and chillies served on rice, topped with a fried egg. Considered as the best pad kaprao you can find in Bangkok, the restaurant’s signature offering lets you choose between beef, pork, Thai sour sausage, wagyu beef, squid, and even a vegetarian version! There are five levels of heat you can choose from: non-spicy, much less spicy, less spicy, medium signature, and VERY spicy.
