Thip Samai Pad Thai - Facade

This is a must visit whenever I’m in Bangkok. Thip Samai is touted as the Best Pad Thai in Bangkok by locals, having come a long way since its opening in 1966.

They still use traditional charcoal stoves instead of gas to fry their Pad Thai.

There are many varations of Pad Thai here and if you don’t like Pad Thai, there is nothing else for you to eat here. Be assured that they use the best ingredients to cook. Ranging from dried shrimps, bean sprouts to fresh prawns.

Thip Samai Pad Thai - Pad Thai Omelette

“The Superb Pad Thai” with prawns wrapped in omelette, is one of the most popular item here. Many prefer this to the Original Pad Thai. Why? The taste is different in terms of the way they cook and also the ingredients used. You just have to try it yourself!

Other than Pad Thai, their offering of drinks here is also good stuff! Want to quench your thirst, this Coconut Shaved Ice is a sold out item so if you want to try, you have to be here early.
