Exploring New Thai Food

Go beyond the staples and explore some of Bangkok's best.

If you like Pad Thai...Then try Pad Thai Omelet

At the famous Thipsamai restaurant, Thailand’s most recognizable dish is nearly unrecognizable to overseas visitors. A true pad thai in Bangkok is actually an omelet with dried shrimp, tamarind-dressed noodles, and soft tofu nestled inside an egg wrapper.

If you like Papaya Salad...Then try Pomelo Salad

This salad originally hails from Nakhon Pathom Province, but to have Bangkok’s best, make a reservation at Issaya Siamese Club. Its modern adaptation arrives with fresh pomelo wedges, hard-boiled eggs, and wok-fried shrimp in a chili-lime dressing.

If you like Tom Yum Soup...Then try Kuay Teow Neau

Kuay teow neau is Thailand’s rich beef noodle soup. Join the communal tables at Kuay Teow Neau Nai Soi on Phra Athit Road, and dig into the braised beef and gooey glass noodles in a lightly spiced broth with hints of vinegar, cinnamon, and star anise.

If you like Chicken Satay...Then try Pork Satay

Even though chicken satay is common in the U.S., the pork version is the norm in Bangkok. Try the skewers, served upside down in a plastic sack with spicy dipping sauce splashed inside, at the prime place for street food: Chinatown’s vibrant Yaowarat Road.
