Pad Thai Wrapped in an Egg Parcel from Thip Samani in Bangkok

Pad Thai is probably the most famous dish in Thai cuisine, but where is the best place to get it in Bangkok? I don’t normally associate Pad Thai with street food but, there is a place in Bangkok’s old district of Phra Nakorn, not far from the Giant Red Swing in Chinatown, about a 10-minute walk from Khao San Road that challenges that association. The Thip Samai in Bangkok is justifiably famous for its specialty; Pad Thai cooked on the streets in woks heated with charcoal. The place opens at 5 PM and even though they must have eight woks going at a time, the lines begin growing throughout the evening.

Thip Samani may make only one dish, but to make the best Pad Thai in Bangkok, you have to specialize! I opted for the version that comes served in a delicate egg parcel. The noodles were perfectly cooked and mixed with decadently fat shrimp, green onions, fish sauce and other flavors. I added red chili flakes, lime juice and of course, peanuts into mine. It was mouthwatering. It was so good in fact that at about $2.40 a serving, I had two!
