Another local favorite is the Som Than Khun Gan. It is located down Sukhumvit. The restaurant is considered an oasis for Thai food.

You can’t miss the pra goong (shrimp salad), the pla chon lui suan (snake head fish with vegetables) and their tasty shrimp salad.

Heng Chun Seng

Bangkok locals also prefer the fantastic Heng Chun Seng Restaurant. If you choose this great restaurant, make sure to order to a maw fai (fire pot) full of beef soup.
