The Asian food spectrum in Bangkok is vast and unlimited, with Myanmar, the Philippines, Malaysia, and even Laos represented at the table. However, the majority of the top spots are divided up between Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and a smattering of Korean. No visit to Bangkok is complete without trying one of the talked about Thai gourmet restaurants like the award winning Nahm or upscale Paste, although for variety and a legion of hard to find dishes, you're best heading out to The Local. Soul Food Mahanakorn also does Thai street food in a relaxing environment, complete with creative cocktails. If you want to sample Chinese, make sure to check out the xiao long bao dumplings at Hong Teong Long, which are even better than the famous ones at Din Tai Fung, although the latter also has a superb range of dishes from Taiwan. Sushi lovers will want to head to Isao, probably the only restaurant in Bangkok that has a line out the door every night of the year, and deservedly so, with fantastic sushi roll creations and more. Lovers of ramen will join the crowds at Bankara, which serves heaping bowls of pork fat and juice ramen that ooze with flavor. Finally, for something completely different, splurge on a meal at Sra Bua. The menu is Thai, but the molecular creations will leave you shaking your head, as you'd never imagine spicy curries getting served in smoke form. From simple eateries to five-star gourmet, you won't ever be disappointed with the range of Asian cuisine in Bangkok.
