Krua Apsorn


Eat well, share them, sleep happily

Krua Apsorn, a decades old no-frills noisy eatery with minimal decoration, is fan of Thai royalty and local connoisseurs, also on radar of foreign journalists and foodies.

Choices of order are limited to a single sheet ordinary laminated menu, offering Thai household dishes with a small selection of Thai-Chinese favorites. All dishes are delightful. With focus on quality of food and authentication of taste only, Krua Apsorn is surely one of the most unpretentious eateries in town.

Krua Apsorn is a classic one. Good food. I wish I could eat there more and more, but its location made me a bit hesitated. Still worth me a trip there once in a while.

$10 US per person and worth 4-star rating from the picky and fussy TC?
Then this must be good and worth going.

Wow.. 4.5 stars! Must try! Can't get the tiger baby without going into the tiger's cave. :) Await to see the photos of this one and if time permits, I would excuse myself from a solitary journey to this one. :)

BTW, why I had to do this is because my travel friends are all poisoned with MO. My fault - I am eating the fruits that I laid the seeds.

Green curry has a nice colour, fluffy omelet is special. The river prawn looks flavourful, sauce not too much, prawn nicely fried, must be yummy! Must try Krua Apsorn.

I can tell from the texture of the omelette that they used very fresh eggs.

The food look appealing, and if TC gave it 4 and a quarter stars, then there must be a good reason behind. This restaurant in Dusit area, bad traffic during daytime, however, still wanna try.

Anything cheap and good like this one then please bring me here.
If picky TC can give a 4.5 star then this place is safe.
Even when TC said 3 star may still be ok.
