Som Tam Nua – Winner of Bangkok best som tam in 2010
Here is the most raved best som tam restaurant in Bangkok. Not only the locals love to come here, this is one of the must eat restaurants for tourists. Our next table was a group of Singaporeans taking out their camera phone to take photo before eat. Singaporean’s style #LetCameraEatsFirst
Of course, this restaurant’s signature dish is this som tam. Som tam is a green papaya salad made from shredded unripe papaya.
Tips to avoid long queues: Always go during less peak hours. =D
Thai ice lemon tea 45 bahts
I totally adore this ice lemon tea! The fragrance, the taste and it may freeze your brain a little bit when you drink too fast lol. Super refreshing to drink on a hot summer afternoon!
Som Tam – Thai papaya salad 65bahts
With intense mixture of limes and chili, fresh papaya, crispy peanuts and chunks of cherry tomatoes bring out very well balance of sour, spicy, salty and sweet taste in this simple dish. Totally live up to its famous name.
Thai rice flour noodles 25bahts.
It looked non spicy but we were completely wrong. The texture was very different from what I thought it should be. It was more like a dry sticky kway teow.. not my cup of
tea kway teow..
Chicken with lemongrass 89bahts
Pork sausages 92bahts
Appearance okok only? Nooo…these sausages are surprisingly very good and very addictive! I almost finished them all by myself.
I would say probably 90% of the dishes are spicy. If you love spicy food, this is definitely the place for you! Otherwise, you can eat all the tomatoes and cucumbers that come with the dishes.. LOL
