2. Charoen Saeng Silom


This restaurant is only open between 08:00 and 13:00, making it not a practical restaurant to visit right before you head to Lebua. But this restaurant is definitely worth to mention as it’s listed in our Top 22 Best Local Thai Restaurants in Bangkok. Charoen Saeng Silom is what we call a legendary restaurant. Charoen Saeng Silom is in business since 1959 and is specialized in Stewed Pork Leg, which comes in three different sizes: 60 THB - 280 THB. The stewed pork leg is covered in a sweet sauce which is incredibly aromatic. The pork leg is served with the skin still attached to the bone, as this tender part is a real delicacy. If you don’t like the skin, it’s recommended to order the Braised Pork Trotter (60 THB). More information about Charoen Saeng Silom, including opening times, location, the complete menu and TopTravelFoods users opinion can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Charoen Saeng Silom.

Duck lovers, pay attention now. This local restaurant named Prachak Pet Yang is another gem in this area.

6. Volcanic Fried Mussel


Listed in our article about the best hoy tod in Bangkok, Volcanic Fried Mussel is another great restaurant that focusses mainly on one specific dish: hoy tod, which is a fried mussel or oyster omelette. For those of you who never tried hoy tod, I shortly explain what it is. Hoy Tod is a greasy omelette with either oysters or mussels and is served with bean sprouts. There are two versions of hoy tod, one version is super crispy, the other version is slimier. At Volcanic Fried Mussel, the Signature Hoy Tod (90 THB) is a crispy version, which I personally prefer over a slimy one. This is not the most healthy Thai dish there is, but sure as hell one of the most satisfying.
