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.

For this year’s summer, we may miss a chance to enjoy khao chae at your favorite Thai restaurant because of the emergency decree to curb covid-10 pandemic, banning dine-in service at restaurants and eateries. The only option to savor the popular Thai summer food to have them delivered to your door. Here are restaurants, chefs and catering service in Bangkok offering khao chae takeaways for delivery in Bangkok.
The best vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Bangkok
Calling veganism a trend is so last year. It’s now a legit lifestyle option, thanks to advocates who relentlessly point out that a meat-free, plant-based diet is beneficial, not just to one's health but to the environment as well. (Did you know that animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions or that the leading cause of rainforest destruction are livestock and feed crops?*) So it’s a good sign that we’re seeing more plant-based establishments cropping up in the city. We’ve rounded up the best vegan and vegetarian restaurants as well as vegan delivery options in the city, from creative vegan eateries to a raw food cafe to a shop that sells plant-based cheese. Whether you’re a full-time vegan, a dabbler in the diet or somewhere in between, any of these places won’t have you asking for meat.
