Sri Morakot opened 50 years ago and remains a favorite lunch spot for locals to this day. Local tip, add the signature seasoning (pickle chili) for a slightly sweet and sour taste. It also brings more texture to Khao Mo Daeng.

Thip Samai is synonymous with the best pad thai Bangkok has to offer. The Bangkok establishment has been a go-to spot for locals and tourists for 79 years and is on its third generation. They introduced the concept of using shrimp-head oil to stir-fry their noodles, giving them an orange hue, and then encasing the pad thai in a super-thin layer of omelet.
🦐PAD THAI SONG-KREUNG: A combination of various quality ingredients, including shrimp oil, fresh extra-size deep-sea prawns, and sliced squid. Then finely garnished with crabmeat and sliced raw mango, giving sour flavor instead of lime juice, before served on a special and gorgeous dish. In addition, you can choose to enjoy deliciousness from either Chan noodle or glass noodle.*
🔥PAD THAI WRAPPED IN OMELETTE: Stir-fried noodles, tofu, bean sprouts, dried shrimp, shrimp, onion, peanut, toppings (chives, lemon and chili)

🥒ABOUT BEFRS: Hey, I’m Sonny! I’m from the US but currently call Vietnam home. I’ve been living in Asia for 10 years and started making food and travel videos to document my experiences. People either enjoyed my undeniable charm or enjoyed watching me eat things like coconut worms, and thus Best Ever Food Review Show came to be.
I travel to different parts of the world, hunting down and documenting the most unique food each country has to offer. If you see any factual food errors in my videos, please feel free to politely let me know in the comments. I'm a huge fan of trying different, interesting foods in each country. My show is from a Western point of view, but more importantly, MY point of view. It is not meant to offend any person or culture.
Don’t forget to subscribe to Best Ever Food Review Show, so we can connect through food and travel and become Bestys! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 🎬CREDITS: DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY » Bret Hamilton CAMERA OPERATOR » Nguyễn Tân Khải VIDEO EDITOR » Jack Mandish VIDEO COLORING » Dương Quốc Huy PRODUCER » Huỳnh Hà My
