Sip in the city

A rather innocuous looking cafe/restaurant at the top (seedy) end of Thanon Suriyawong, opposite the alleyway where the ‘boy shows’ take place. The menu offers both Thai and Western dishes, like a fettucini carbonara.

Not the sort of place you’d expect to find Pad Thai greatness, but let me just repeat what it said in the menu: Pad Thai with soft-shell crab, wrapped in Thai omelette. For the record: win, win, WIN.
