This is NOT the last day in the 2 weeks in Bangkok video travel guide series – still have one more day coming tomorrow (15 days in total). On Day 14 we started off eating at a famous Halal Thai restaurant in Bangkok and then went to a few attractions and rode a boat, and then finally we searched out and found one of the best versions of Pad Thai I’ve ever had in Bangkok.
00:28 Muslim Restaurant (อาหารมุสลิม) – Right in the heart of Bangrak in Bangkok is a famous halal restaurant called Muslim Restaurant (อาหารมุสลิม) that has been around for a very long time and is a pretty legendary restaurant. We first ate there for breakfast to start the day. The mataba gai (มะตะบะไก่), chicken stuffed roti was pretty good, but the best dish of the meal for me was the khao mok pae (ข้าวหมกแพะ), which is goat biryani. The food at Muslim Restaurant (อาหารมุสลิม) is overall quite good and it’s a decent restaurant to eat at if you’re looking for Thai halal food right in the heart of Bangkok at Bangrak / Silom.
6:54 Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน) – After having a delicious breakfast, we jumped into a taxi and rode over to Baan Silapin (บ้านศิลปิน), which is also known at the Thai Artist’s House. It’s a house and community area located along the canal on the Thonburi side of the river in Bangkok. It’s kind of a touristy artistic place where you can go to walk around, enjoy the atmosphere of the canal side community and they also occasionally have traditional Thai puppet shows (however, things are changing there, so I’m not sure if they will continue to offer Thai puppet shows in the future). In any case, it’s a nice place to walk around and explore and I had an iced coffee. While we were there, we saw a sign to rent a long tail boat, so we hired a longtail boat to take us on a tour around the canal in Bangkok and then eventually we came back out to the Chao Phraya river where the driver dropped us off at Wat Kalayanamitr (วัดกัลยาณมิตรวรมหาวิหาร) temple – we wanted to get dropped there to explore another area of Bangkok.
10:53 Santa Cruz Church (ซางตาครู้ส) and the Kudeejeen Community – One of the lesser visited areas of Bangkok, but one that has a lot of history is the area around Santa Cruz Church (ซางตาครู้ส) and what’s known as the Kudeejeen Community. The area is home to a mix of Thai and Portuguese and Chinese and it’s an interesting area of Bangkok to walk around. we stopped at Thanusingha Bakery House (ธนูสิงห์) for a famous snack Thai Portuguese snack made in the area, and then we walked over to the church as well. Then we headed back to Chatrium hotel.
15:17 Pad Thai Soi Pradu (ผัดไทยซอยวัดประดู่) – I have to first start off my saying that I don’t eat pad Thai all that often when I’m in Bangkok – not that I don’t like it, but I like so many other dishes, so I don’t get around to eating it all that often. But Ying told me we needed to check out, Pad Thai Soi Pradu (ผัดไทยซอยวัดประดู่), a Pad Thai restaurant in the Charoen Krung area of Bangkok. It was a bit of a challenging place to get to, and once we got there we found out they had already sold out of the main fresh shrimp Pad Thai. So I settled for the Pad Thai with dry shrimp. It turned out to be one of the best Pad Thai in Bangkok that I’ve had in a long time – maybe ever? Anyway, the Pad Thai was exceptionally good, partly because of how it was stir fried to the point of it having an extraordinary smoky flavor.
Day 14 was our final full day on this trip to Bangkok, and both meals were the highlight of the day for me!
