Krua Apsorn doesn't look like much from the outside or inside, but foodies in the know recognize it as one of Bangkok's most venerated institutions. This is homestyle Thai cooking at its absolute best, no frills delicious using some superb ingredients. The menu isn't all that large, and almost everyone who comes here does so for the two standout signature dishes, which are the crab in yellow curry, along with the stuffed crab omelette. The omelette is stuffed with juicy crab pieces that really explode in flavor, and the same goes for the curry dish, where the pungent yellow curry is really sucked up by the crab meat. The green mussels with basil leaves are also renowned here, and plenty of famed 5 star chefs call in here for a meal in their free time. There are actually four branches of the restaurant now scattered through Bangkok, but we recommend going to the original one in the historic Dusit area of Old Bangkok.
- Homestyle: "The best way to get here is via the Chao Phraya River Ferry to the Thewet pier and then grab a taxi, or else get a taxi going up Samsen Road from the Khao San Road area in Banglamphu. Do note that the restaurant is closed on Sundays, and does shut at 7:30, so make it an early dinner or else lunch."
- Best for Homestyle Because: For homestyle cooking with the best crab curry in Thailand, Krua Apsorn rules!
