Sour, tangy and packed full of heat, there are few things out there as satisfying as a bowl of spicy tom yum goong.
This classic Thai dish is a hot favourite amongst both locals and tourists alike and it is a must-try item whenever you visit the land of smiles. We love how the dish can be eaten on its own or be used as a centrepiece for meals with a group of friend, making it a versatile option for any occasion.

Every corner of this quaint, elegant cafe is Instagram-worthy and the place is a short respite away from Bangkok’s bustling city life.
Aside from the enchanting get-up, the cafes extensive menu is something else to get excited about. From local delights to your usual cafe nosh, B-Story dishes out scrumptious dishes that are as stellar as their interior.
There are few things as addictive as boat noodles and we love the satisfying feeling of stacking all those finished bowls up high. The great thing about boat noodles is that because the portions are all so small and cheap, you get to try a variety of different broths and noodles till your heart’s content without feeling a pinch in your wallet.
Bangkok is no short of places that dish out scrumptious bowls of boat noodles and one of our favourite haunts whenever we are there is Kin Tiew Kan Noodle.

Sabx2 Wanton Mee isn’t an unfamiliar name and if it’s your first trip to Bangkok, you probably would have been recommended to try their Thai-style wanton mee and pork trotter rice.

We used to be big fans of Sabx2 Wanton Mee but unfortunately, the standards have dropped drastically and it is no longer worth a visit.
