Located in the old quarter of Bangkok known as Rattanakosin Island, Somsong is a favorite mom-and-pop famous for serving Thai food not typically found outside the home. You'll have plenty of choices here: Go for Sukhothai noodles (rice noodle with pork broth and string beans), a variety of Thai curries and rice, daily one-plate meal specials, and fantastic Thai desserts like khao fang (young rice pudding), durian and sticky rice (seasonal). Try one of everything if you can, and don't leave without getting the rice with shrimp paste. [$]
Address: Samsen Road, between Soi 3 and Soi 5, Banglamphu, Bangkok
Open hours: 9 am – 4 pm daily
Prices: Typical street food prices, you’ll pay around 35 – 45 THB per dish. This time eating here I failed to remember how much we paid, but I think it was under 150 THB for everything we ordered.
How to get there: Somsong Pochana (ร้านสมทรงโภชนา) is now located right along Samsen Road, in between Soi 3 and Soi 5. If you’re in the Banglamphu area or at Khao San you can walk there in about 5 minutes.
