"THIPSAMAI PADTHAI" Thip Samai Tip by ancient_traveler
Thip Samai, Bangkok: 5 reviews and 9 photos
Possibly the most famous (and best!) 'pad thai' shop (since it cannot really be called a restaurant) in Bangkok, Thipsamai has been around for more than 40 years. There are seven types of 'pad thai' on the menu, ranging from 25 baht to 120 baht per plate.
'Pad thai' is Thai-style fried vermicelli/glass noodle. It's eaten with sprouts, freshly squeezed lime juice and 'young banana'.
Open from around 17:00 every day until 03:00.
Favorite Dish: The signature version, 'pad thai song-kreung' consists of shrimp roe, prawns, fried egg, fresh crab meat, grind cuttlefish and sliced mango. The result is a stringy, tangy, juicy and delicious taste that will have you craving for more the next day.
Without a doubt, also at Thipsamai. Better even than the freshly squeezed orange juice at any five-star hotel.
Again, head straight to Thipsamai. It's an ice smoothie with pieces of sliced coconut. Get there early for this speciality because they normally run out quickly.
