Thailand quietly became the center of gourmet and spas. In recent years Bangkok is rising as the capital of the World's kitchen. Wanna join me to explore the Kingdom?

And one more time to FBI place. How about the flying place in Central World?SS
OK, my favourite local food in Thailand are on a long list. Hope you don't mind:-the Lobster Bisque from Normandie and their bread. -Pad Thai and Chicken/Shrimp salad in Mango sauce from Kalapruek (but only the one on the first floor of Emporium - the other Kalapruek are not that good). -Tom Yam Krung from Samsen Soi Sam. -SomTam from Thai Isan Restaurant. -Turtle Herbal jelly, Fujian fried rice and shrimp dumpling from Crystal Jade. -Ice Cream from Thong Kruen. -Flaming prawn from Kanabnam. -BBQ seabass in sea salt and stir fried morning glory from Jer Ngor.-Grilled scallop and tuna belly sashimi on rice from Grill Tokyo.-Sun Mee (vercemilli) in thick brown soup from Nara.- to be listed later... :)
This list is too humble, for sure you have more than this Sea.I need to see more from your list.SS
The list goes on:-Herbal Jelly (涼粉/仙草) from Piggy Head Noodle Shop (first one in Siam Square but now in chain store almost everywhere).-Fried chicken wings from Greyhound (the Emporium outlet)-beef noodle soup on Thong Lor (opposite to the police station).-Khao Che from Tea Room by Grand Hyatt-Pizza from Bacco-Warm Chocolate cake from High Tea on Langsuan (not sure if they have moved now).-stir fried vercemilli from Wong Shen Fung China Town.-Deep fried prawn cake from Saladaeng Cafe by Jim Thompson.-Stir fried shark's fin from New Light.-Frozen Yoghurt from Buddhi Belly-Strawberry cake from Mousse and Meringue-Chilled noodle from Arirang.-Eggplant salad from Sorndaeng.-..... to be continued.... :)
Can't believe that Buddhi Belly was Thai originated (found 2008 in Bangkok), so tasty and unique, beat those imported brandsThailand has many good stuffs!
My favourite Thai food is chicken rice, green curry, mango stick rice, fried prawn cake, fried morning glory.
Half of the Sea's list is also my favorite(the other half is because I did not try yet).Thailand is the heaven for eating, spa and massage. Cheap,good with quality service. Good that Thailand people are lazy and they have the stupid riot/protest once in a while, otherwise its tourist business can replace HK's.SS
The followings are my favorites:Iberry dessert cake and yogurt;Shark Fin soup at all places we went;Blue Elephant's appetizer(the potatoe pouch) at ur 1st trip;The big prawn at Hua Hin;Lord Jim for my Birthday brunch;Le Normandie;The frog we ate in Pattaya;Haggen Dazs ice cream;all the high tea;and all my favorite Japanese food in Tokyo Grill, Kabuki, and the one we ate with J & M in Thong Lo.The only dish not better than LA is the beef/steak.From,Sharka
Mmmh... I may have forgotten some. Here are some more:-salad bar, cold dishes and dessert array, Lord Jim's lunch buffet, Oriental Bangkok-Chef's salad, Tuna salad & Lobster Bisque, Oriental Cafe, G/F., Emporiumand some gone but missed:-Chicken rice by Madam Cool near Wong Sheng Fung, China Town.-fried noodles and fried rice by Happy Big Eye Girl in 義福巷 Shark's Fin China Town-SomTam at Food Court - the old Siam Center.-Pork Knuckle's rice - pre-decorated Emporium food court...
ooops in-the-sea, u really hv a long list and big stomach:)
I think Sea may eat more places than the locals.
My favorite local delis,1. Jim-jom (Isan spicy hot-pot)2. Kanom-jeen nam-ya (Thai rice spaghetti with curry sauce)3. Gai-yang som-tum (Isan grilled chicken with spicy Thai raw papaya salad)4. Mee-krob (sweet and sour crispy rice noodle with som-saa)5. Pad-thai (fried rice noodle with tamarind sauce)6. Nam-tok moo-yang (grilled pork meat in Isan nam-tok dressing)7. Khao-soi (Northern style crispy egg noodle in curry soup)8. Pad-kee-mao (fried flat rice noodle with heavy chili and basil)9. Moo-stick (barbeque marinated pork meat on a skewer)10.and of course my favorite Mc's Fillet-o-Fish.Oooops Mc's burger is not a Thai dish!
Fish Fillet is my favorite too. Also soft cone in McDonald; it is like Dairy Farm ice cream in HK.
i do have a headache when my friends and families asking me for tips about where to eat. Like last December, my sisters decided to have a week stay in Bangkok, they don't have enough time to check on the restaurants I wanna bring them to.
The friends we met today had the same comment. They went to BKK for one week but they don't feel enough. They said they are surprised the western foods are also good in BKK. (My friends are HK people.)
that's why i share a handful number of farang (Western) restaurants in the blog :)
My friend Talie just came back from Taiwan and HK. She said food in Taiwan and HK is double of BKK's so she missed food in Thailand. (Her brother is in BKK.)She also said that Taiwan and HK people said the BKK protest is nothing but the reporters exaggerate a lot. Her friends still go to BKK for Easter regardless and left her alone in Taiwan(she cannot buy the ticket in time from Taiwan to BKK).
I got curious to check on the air ticket seat availability for the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival. Phuket's and BKK's roundtrips are all full except higher class fares to 3k something. I think when one reporting on the other areas would just exaggerate the facts. I was in Taiwan last week and watched the Taiwan news about HK as the headline read "HK is collapsed" when one H1N1 patient is found. BTW, not just Western food is good but also cuisine like Middle East, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese...etc. are also good if you have time to explore....
