Favorite big City for food.
With a Thai wife, Bangkok is our second home..
We had a house just behind Queen Park next to the Emporium for many years.
So hard to cook there when little specialty kitchens are literally everywhere.

we were just at Empornium earlier tonight. bangkok is as crazy as ever, we were thinking of buying an apartment here a few years ago since we travel here so often, but it's just too crazy to live here, even part-time. i asked my wife he she wanted to go to bali for a week since we both never been there, but she loves thailand. oh well maybe next time..

when you come, be prepared to negotiate taxi/tuk tuk prices. nobody goes by the meter anymore. or use grab

ohif you plan on eating curry crab, look for it at early lunch. almost every place we went to for dinner expecting to order curry crab, they were sold out. 


i made the mistake of booking our hotel the same travel dates but next month. so my wife will come to bangkok again in march on me screwing up.. 😂

WOW. Does anyone have any idea where which wire connects to what? :smt046




One of the locals were telling me that the government is planning to put wires underground in some of the central parts of Bangkok, but that people have complained as it is an iconic feature of Bangkok, as seen in @David Chang and my photos...

All of that food look delicious. The curry crab has to be good.  Those wires remind me of my ATT days. That metal rectangular can supports up to 25 customers.  But forget that. I'm going for the food

 back in bangkok and just had a very good meal at Jeh O Chula. the wait was about an hour, but you can book..

their most popular dish is tom yum soup with MAMA noodles (Thai version of Indomie) with raw egg yolks and several legs of backfin lump crabmeat..

at first glance, it's looks like cheap food i used to make in college, but man is this thing tasty...



the crispy pork was some of the best i've had in bangkok. it rivals hk's famed siu yuk..


the stir fried chinese kale was freaking amazing.
i believe it was only seasoned with salt fish (a pungent fermented salt cured fish. it's an absolute umami flavour bomb) 


and the mud crab. simply steamed and loaded with roe and served with magic thai seafood sauce.



and the face of the restaurant, the owner i suppose, is this grey haired lady chopping away at crispy pork belly...


might ruin someones night if one of these cables got cut accidentally..
