Authentic, first rate Thai food actually takes some effort to find in Bangkok. Tonight I lucked out. I discovered Mit-Go-Youn. It's not five minutes by taxi from Khao San Road -- but a world apart in taste.
We ordered a pork soup (sorry Piggy!), tom yum gung (spicy prawn soup), and chicken fried rice. Mit-Go-Youn is on Dinsaw Street which runs directly south of Democracy Monument on Rachadamnon Avenue. It's a small family owned restaurant that's been in business for 60 years. The owner, a lady with the biggest, most genuine smile you've ever seen, circulates among the tables, making sure her customers are happy. Below are some photos of our most excellent meal. The bill tonight? Around $5.00 for two.
