Lan Som Tam Nua (Papaya Salad Restaurant), Bangkok
This has become an all time favourite restaurant for me in Bangkok. By the name of the restaurant, their specialty is the som tam or papaya salad with different variations. I tried the one with what they termed “preserved egg” or salted egg (top) as we know it. The combination of the saltiness from the egg and the spiciness from the som tam is delicious.
What else is delectable is their baskets of chicken wings, so fragrant and crisp and taste so good with the sticky rice (below). My other favourite (everything is a favourite here!) is the hot and sour soup. Yums!!!
