3. Prachak Roasted Duck
📍 1415, Charoen Krung Road | Silom, Bangkok 10500, Thailand
It is no surprise that the most popular dish here is the roasted duck. In front of the food stall, you can see freshly roasted duck hanging outside. The skin of the duck is golden and crispy with meat so tender and juicy it falls off the bone. The duck itself is a stand-alone item but together with their sauce, it takes it to a whole new level. It is both rich and savory and is poured over the duck. You can order yourself a bowl with egg noodles or get yourself a bowl of rice to eat with the sauce.
4. Thip Samai Pad Thai
📍 313-315 Maha Chai Rd, Bangkok 10200, Thailand
Serving Thai foods since 1966, Thip Samai’s Pad Thai has been passed down from generations. It is known as the best Pad Thai in Thailand rated by the Michelin star and approved by the Prime Minister himself. Many locals and tourists know to order the signature “Superb Pad Thai”. It is cooked over charcoal and mangrove wood that adds a level of depth and flavor unlike any other. You haven’t had Pad Thai unless you’ve been to Thip Samai.
5. Go-Ang Kaomunkai Pratunam
📍 960-962 Phetchaburi Rd., Bangkok 10400, Thailand
Much like the popular Hainanese chicken dish from Singapore, Go-Ang Kaomunkai Pratunam serves a simple and savory Thai-styled chicken and rice dish.
