Home sweet home dining

A friend's birthday. Did lunch near Bon Marche (Market). Far far from C.B.D. Bangkok! At a place like home-sweet-home more than a restaurant.

Did I enjoy the lunch? Yes. Very much. Lunch at Prapak is like eating at a friend's home that the food were prepared by his/her mom, noncommercial kind.

deep-fried chicken wings with garlic THB 115;
stir-fried kale with sun-dried salty fish flake in oyster sauce THB 95

stir-fried green curry with home-made pla-krai fish ball THB 125

tomyum pla-salid fish soup THB 115; gaeng som soup THB 115

Prapak does not only serve cuisine that tastes like our aunties cook, but also serves tempting desserts for the sweet tooth; and the hut for movie stars to spend an afternoon with their off-screen buddies.

cherry cheese pie; mille-feuille with strawberry sauce

So this time you go to a suburb kitchen to eat. Bangkok has too many good choices. Food paradise instead.

don't be trapped in the TH district zoning, although it is in Chatuchak, but the JJ Market r u familiar with, and Bon Marche Market where nearby this restaurant, is happened at two ends, twenty miles away (15 mins. by car in through traffic)

Bon Marche Market! It is near the old Bangkok airport Don Muang. So this place is for picnic lunch. You work (eat) so hard TC!

This is kind of like the "see fong choi"(private cooking)type.
The dishes look very delicious.
