About Bangkok Restaurants
Bangkok is truly one of the world's gourmet paradises. Whether it be by type of cuisine or type of establishment, one can find just about everything and anything from top to bottom, with all of it being superb. There are roof top locations or lush garden spots serving up fine French, Italian, or even the latest in nouvelle cuisine such as Indian molecular gastronomy (Gaggan)! While at the other end of the spectrum one finds auntie's on street corners dishing out bowls of noodles that people have been lining up for for decades they are so popular (Jae Fai).
Even within the Thai food options, the selections are far wider than the average visitor could ever imagine. Most tourists of course know pad thai and tom yam goong, but very few have made the effort to sample spicy southern cooking (Phuket Town) or the harder to find northern cuisine (Gedhawa) and it variations on traditional recipes. Perhaps best of all are the local no frills Isaan restaurants, which offer plenty of tasty grilled meats and spicy salads to go with plenty of bottles of beer,whiskey, and good cheer in simple yet extremely lively locations, where you will have a truly Thai experience (Lung Yai).
