Phat Thai Soi 2

Posted date:  February 13, 2011


I’m back home in Bangkok and after months away, am getting into the swing of things by eating Bangkok-style food. Lunch a few days ago was yen ta fo and more recently, phat Thai.

For many people outside of Thailand, particularly those in the US, phat Thai is synonymous with Thai food. And in what must be some Americans’ fantasy perception of Thailand, I live literally next door to a phat Thai restaurant. Unfortunately this isn’t my own fantasy scenario — I’d much rather live next door to a khao khluk kapi restaurant — but the phat Thai at this no-name shop near Th Silom is better than most.

The noodles are slightly undercooked, as they should be, the dish is relatively well-seasoned with lots of egg and tofu, and comes served with good quality sides. My only gripe would be with the immense serving size, which if you ask me, is practically American.

I don’t think it is only Americans who fantasise about Phat Thai, it’s everyone.
Although getting a decent one outside of Thailand is a problem.

That looks delicious! But I’d have to agree that I’d much rather live next door to a khao khluk kapi or a khao yum (the southern rice dish with ‘voodoo’ sauce) restaurant.

The dish looks very delicious! I love to try Thai street food in Bangkok.

Your funny calling the serving size “practically American” as an apparent criticism. Size is not everything 😉

The dish does look really good. Perhaps if it is too much for you, you can take the rest home in a doggie bag? Or better yet, give it to me!

Pad thai with banana blossoms? Is that what I see in the ganish plate? Anyway, street food is fun to try, just hope that there’s no stomach issue for Westerners!

Wanna say something?
