Poj Spa Kar

Posted date:  January 15, 2008


This restaurant, pronounced phot saphaa khaan, is famous for its cook, who is the relative of a former cook in the royal palace. The restaurant, which has been located in the same place since 1925, claims to follow these royal recipes, and serves excellent old-school faves such as mee krawp (sweet/sour crispy noodles) and kaeng liang (a thick soup combining shrimp and vegetables). I particularly like the more unusual dishes such as a delicious salad of fresh herbs and grilled pork, and the deceptively simple but delicious omelet with lemongrass (pictured above).

I don’t know why I always ready your blog right before lunch or dinner when my stomach starts growling. I eat your pics with my eyes…

Do they serve omelette in spa these day?

Saw the piece in the Times and was happy to see you credited as the all-knowing Bangkok food source. Only 3 1/2 months until I arrive to eat everything is sight…

I am hungry.

I love omelette.

Why go out for Thai food when you can make it at home?
