Traditional Thai Food at The Local Restaurant in Bangkok

0 Traditional Thai Food at The Local Restaurant in BangkokMore information on this link.

Within the hustle of modern Thai food, it can be challenging to actually find authentic and traditional Thai food.

In Bangkok, street food though very delicious, is modified so it’s easier to make and quicker to sell. This of course, isn’t bad, and Thai street food is outstanding, but it can be nice to get back to the roots of Thai cuisine and experience a meal that accentuates the passion and the deep flavors that Thai cuisine has become so famous for.

In this video the Eating Thai Food crew heads over to The Local Restaurant in Bangkok, Thailand (just off Asoke road) for an unforgettable dining experience.

First off the owner and Chef Cann explains a little about local Thai culinary roots and goes over a number of the traditional dishes that he’s prepared for us to sample.

After that, I finally have an opportunity to taste a few of the delights that he’s cooked.

We began the meal off with an incredible looking appetizer mixed plate known as Ruam Kam Aroy (รวมคำอร่อย). It included a number of different tasting tidbits to eat.

Next was the mixed vegetable dish known as Pad Pak Pun Baan (ผัดผักพื้นบ้าน) which was cooked so it was still crisp and not at all limp or over done. It was a great veggie dish to mix with the other curries and dishes of the meal.

Another delicious item on the menu is the traditional Thai Gaeng Run Juan (แกงรัญจวนเนื้อ). This was my first time to eat it, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bite!

Lastly, The Local is especially famous for their Pla Ta Pien Tom Kem (ปลาตะเพียนต้มเค็ม), which is a signature fish slow simmered in sugar cane juice and ginger.

The traditional Thai food meal was fantastic and the entire experience was incredible.
