This is the kind of place that serves really simple, no frills kinda dishes - in that great, mind blowin' kinda way. The kind of food the cooks are cooking for themselves after they've served you ketchup riddled pad thai. Do you know what I mean?
Anyone whose ever worked in the industry knows the best meals in a restaurant are served at the end of the night - after lights out, during staff meal when the cooks are free to cook whatever they like.
Khao San Road is that place. No fancy sauces, wooden elephants, crazy tapestries, sticky noodle dishes - nope! Just basic ingredients executed with a lot of skill.
All the curries here are absolutely phenomenal and go down pretty smooth. There isn't a strong after taste and your throat isn't left scratchy. ha! - that's what she said!
My only disappointment? Their zucchini fritters weren't on the lunch menu! WTF?!
