8 great restaurants that serve amazing fried rice dishes
Ask Thais what they usually eat, and “khao pad” is bound to be one of the answers. Fried rice is considered an essential in Thai cuisine, and a majority of Thai households prepare and enjoy it at least once a week. Cooking khao pad is simple. There is no set recipe to make it. Usually, all you need are eggs, a meat or protein of your choice, some veggies and, of course, rice. But cooking is all about creativity, don’t you agree? This is why fried rice is served in God-knows-how-many ways. Some use plain chicken or pork, whereas others turn to more unconventional ingredients like salmon or crab meat. (Pineapple is also a popular ingredient in this dish. Sorry to Hawaiian pizza haters.) Regardless of the mix-ins, every variation promises comforting flavors and that wok-fried aroma in every bite. Many restaurants across Bangkok serve khao pad that’s on an entirely different level, whether in taste or presentation. We’ve picked eight of the best ones.
