You no longer have to fly to Chiang Mai for authentic Khao Soi because the people behind Chiang Mai’s Ong Tong noodle shop have opened a shop in Bangkok. Located in Ari district, it’s just a short walk from BTS Ari, along Phahon Yothin Soi 7. For those who are wondering what’s Khao Soi, it’s actually a very famous dish in the North. It’s quick similar to our curry noodles but their version comes with crispy noodles too. You just have to try this famous dish for yourselves.
Ong Tong Khao Soi can get very crowded during peak hours so you might have to queue. There are seatings both on the ground and upper level.
We prefer the seats on the upper level as it’s more comfortable and spaced out.
This is their original KhaoSoi with soup [from 79฿]. The soup is creamy and spicy but not sour. You can choose from Chicken, Pork or Beef and the most popular version is definitely the chicken, which comes in a drumstick.
Another popular item here is their Stir-Fried KhaoSoi with egg [from 89฿]. It’s actually quite delicious with a little of that “wok hei”.
If you are here with your friends, we recommend you to order each of the original Khaosoi with soup and perhaps the stir-fried version to share. The portions are actually quite small so you might even consider having both to complete your meal. They also have some other popular sides which you order to share.
