You Need To Try These Home-style Restaurants In Bangkok.

ASAI ASAI ASAI ASAI

 

The list of must-try restaurants in Bangkok seems to go on and on, but sometimes you just want a nice comforting homestyle meal. If you’re looking for authentic home cooked experience, Baan Nual in the old town area might just be the place. Located in a shophouse, they serve up childhood favourites like stir-fried pork with shrimp paste. Be sure to book way ahead of time as space is limited. Another top spot in the old town is Baan Wannakowit, a 130-year-old Thai wooden house with limited, reservation-only tables. If you visit Bangkok in April, you might get to try their secret family recipe of “Khao Chae,” a classic chilled rice dish served with condiments like deep-fried shallots and sweet pork. Head over to the Ratchada area for Baan Ta Ruang, where the menu changes every day according to the whims of the grandma who owns this cosy Thai house. Don’t miss their rotating Thai sweets and drinks to complete the home-cooked experience.

Want to experience what it's like growing up in Thailand? Sample the many dishes at Yang Gao Gorn. This homestyle restaurant serves authentic dishes that are trickier to find amongst the many modern and fusion Thai menus in town. Don't miss the five spice egg soup--a Chinese-inspired soup with egg, tofu and pork, and give the pineapple curry with horseshoe crab egg a try.

If you want to know what Thai home-cooking feels like, this place will satisfy you. The small restaurant under an old wooden house can only fit up to 15 customers, so it’s best to book in advance. The cosiness definitely helps emphasise the homey yet extraordinary taste of the food, and you’ll leave with both a full stomach and a memorable experience.

Walk through a lush green garden and you'll find yourself in a 130-year-old Thai wooden house, owned by the Wannakowit family. In this place of history, the family still operate their catering business along with a limited number of dine-in tables. You'll find many Thai comfort dishes such as Khao Kluk Kapi, a rice dish tossed with shrimp paste and eaten with various condiments, or in the summer months, Khao Chae, a chilled rice dish also served with an array of condiments.

If you're looking for a no-fuss spot to enjoy authentic homestyle Thai recipes near The Grand Palace, give Chote Chitr a go. The recipes at the restaurant have been passed down from generation to generation and it’s more than 100 years old. Don't miss the refreshing banana blossom salad or the wide variety of seafood on offer, such as deep-fried three flavours fish.

This homestyle restaurant in the centre of town has been operating since the 1970s. Even though the decor is not much to look at, the food is what keeps loyal patrons living near the Wittayu area coming back. With affordable prices and a range of Thai food on offer, it’s also packed with office workers at lunchtime. Hard-to-find dishes such as Phra Ram Long Srong, morning glory and pork in satay style sauce, and egg sausage soup are among the must-tries.

MON-SAT 10AM–3PM [CLOSED SUN]

Set in an airy Thai style house, Baan Ta Rueng is run by the grandchildren of the original owner, as a homage to grandma's home cooking. Sit at the long communal table, a warmly lit space decorated with Thai knick-knacks. Their menu changes every day, depending on what grandma wants to make, so return visits are advised. Save room for her homemade Thai desserts and drinks as well.
