Isaan food, ไก่ทอดสมุนไพร (kai tod samunprai) 70 บาท / 30-200b
This typical Isaan looking restaurant might not look appealing from the outside but their food is very good. The place is clean and has air conditioning. I recommend the fried chicken with lemon grass (gai tod samunprai) as i love the crispy but soft fried chicken and the deep fried lemon grass on top that smells so good. Their papaya salad with fermented crab (som tum boo plara) is also good. Although, they mixed up my order from som tum plara to som tum pu plara. It just means I have to go back to try the papaya salad without the crab. You should bring some friends to enjoy the food, since there were many yummy sounding dishes i didn’t get to try such as: fish dishes, tom yum goong, spicy salad dishes and a lot more.
