Jok Prince

By Wilbur Suen

Today’s recommendation is not about a handsome prince, but “Jok” Prince. Jok means “Porridge” so you can also called it Porridge / Congee Prince if you like. As for why they call it Prince, it’s because it’s located in the alley leading to Prince Theatre.


This particular stall in Charoenkrung Road has been around for 50 years and is popular with both locals and foreigners. Some say they probably serve the best porridge in Bangkok. Even Anthony Bourdain was here, that should speak volumes!


This is a no-frills stall, don’t expect anything glamorous. It’s located in a small alley with some tables and chairs for you to eat your porridge. Food here is really cheap, starting from 35 baht.


What they sell is very simple. Porridge with Minced Pork Balls with options of internal organs, raw egg and century egg. What is special here is that the porridge is well boiled and cooked, making it very smooth and the attraction is it’s “wok hei” (smoky heat from the cooking).

Comforting food at very low prices, no frills.


Please take note of their opening hours as below. You definitely don’t want to see the sign, “The stall is closed” after you may your way there.  They are only open for Breakfast and Dinner / Supper.

All the pictures in this post are taken from 3 different trips and once was with Brunei’s Top Food Blogger, Thanis Lim and he loves it so much that he made a repeated trip too!
