Things to do near Taksin Bridge
A legendary restaurant Prachak has been serving delicious roasted duck for many generations. The decor inside is where all guaratees from local and international newspaper and magazines are showing on the wall. Try crispy roasted duck with rice served with pickle. There are also crispy pork belly, red BBQ pork and egg noodle. Prachak is an air-conditioned restaurant, so it is very suitable for hot days in Bangkok.
For more than 50 years, Jok Prince is a place to go when you want some heavenly hot congee. Their congee is different because of its soft texture and the signature slightly burnt smell. The congee is served with minced pork, and you can also add egg and pork entrails. This place closes at midnight, so don't go to sleep without food in your belly.
Situated next to a camera shop called “AV Camera,” this almost-44-year-old restaurant makes Bangkok a better place with their crispy pan fried oysters and mussels omelette. Here, they only use fresh ingredients combining with their signature crunchy yet soft taxture of the pancake.
For a stewed pork knuckle dish, this restaurant has been around for decades and it is truly one of the best in Bangkok. Soft and tender pork on rice served with spicy sauce and boiled egg is like a heaven in your mouth.
A small street vendor, that has been selling Cantonese pork ball for almost 16 years on Charoenkrung Road, is where you can get the original recipe. You can choose between spicy and non-spicy ones, but we do recommend the spicy ones as they are more tasty. They also have deep fried Chinese buns with Red BBQ Pork and sweet cream fillings.
One of the signatures here is noodle that comes in a large portion (a double of what we normally have.) You will get a tender duck drumstick and duck entrails within the dish, too. Come early, or you will regret it, and it's jam-packed during a lunch time.
Charoenkrung 44 was a just small alley with no distinguishing feature – at least until an eatery dedicated to Thailand’s most beloved noodle dish recently opened within its narrow confines.
Bridge Cafe utilizes the space of an old building to maximum capacity, exhibiting art in all corners from the ground floor up. Take in the fascinating view of Taksin Bridge once you hit the rooftop.
Ten years after it closed down, Prince Rama Theatre has been revived as a hotel called Prince Theatre Heritage Stay. Rebuilt with much respects to its original structure, the hotel has 26 rooms and suites, each decorated with elements that reacquaint guests with the hotel’s origins. The hotel also offers a walking tour that brings visitors to hidden gems around the neighborhood. Check out the cinema-themed bar for drinks inspired by movies previously screened at the theater.
