Bonus: Khao Soi Kitchen (Sukhumvit 50, On Nut)
Khao Soi Kitchen is a small restaurant located in Sukhumvit Soi 50, a ten-minute-walk from BTS On Nut and recently opened its doors in March 2020. The owner and chef, Khun Siripha lived in Chiang Mai until the age of fifteen until she moved to New York. During her whole childhood, she ate Khao Soi at least twice a day, but could not find any similar tasted, authentic Khao Soi in the United States. Now, she is back in Thailand and is dedicated to serving the authentic Nothern Thai speciality that she so loved since she was young. The Khao Soi served at Khao Soi Kitchen is rich and creamy and has a slightly spicy tone, just enough to tickle your taste buds. The Khao Soi is served with a chicken drumstick, which is tender enough to scoop the chicken meat straight from the bone with a spoon. Besides Khao Soi, Khao Soi Kitchen also serves Massaman Curry and Pad Thai, both are highly recommended as well.
The reason why Khun Sirpiha chooses Bangkok is that it’s difficult to find great Khao Soi in Bangkok - which I agree - as many of the best Khao Soi in Bangkok listed in this article are often located far away from common areas. With the opening of Khao Soi Kitchen, many Bangkokians can now easily enjoy authentic flavoured Khao Soi. The fact that this restaurant has so many returning customers from day one can only mean one thing: the Khao Soi is simply amazing!
