I've eaten with friends and colleagues in all these restaurants in (greater) Bangkok. I'm no food expert, but I do know what I like! Many of my older reviews were also published in Japanese on newsclip.be タイ発ニュース速報. Whether you're after Thai food, or craving a Mexican taco, Japanese buffet or fish & chips, you can find it all here.

Laap Paak (ลาภปาก)

Star full.svgStar full.svgStar full.svgStar empty.svgStar empty.svg My friend took me to this Thai restaurant hidden away behind a white fence near Hualampong train station.

There's a terrace outside with lots of green, a comfortable corner with couch in the front and a bigger air-conditioned space inside. The place is decorated in modern, arty style with dark wooden furniture, decorated walls and playful lighting.

The food is what they call "traditional Thai cuisine", so we went for typical Thai
north-eastern style dishes like laab plaa (minced fish salad), served with a side dish of raw vegetables, po pia sod (fresh spring rolls), kay yaang (grilled chicken) and sticky rice, all of which were delicious. There's a small selection of Thai desserts on the menu, including homemade coconut ice cream. Our drink was a few big bottles of beer.

Service was friendly. A good place to go for a meal, especially if you find yourself hanging out at the train station waiting for your train.
