This buzzing canal-side canteen offers a regularly changing menu of Bangkok delicacies.

Adjacent to the Canal Saint-Martin, this stylish Thai canteen – opened in September 2015 – offers a regularly changing menu of delicacies to a young and trendy clientele. Past the glass façade, diners peer up at long neon lights that run across the red walls and ceiling, while the kitchen/servery is open, metallic and designed like some sort of futuristic scaffolding. Behind the counter, Ja Euarchukiati – a former chef at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Bangkok – leads a team of skilled Bangkokian chefs who here serve up typical ‘Chatuchak’ set menus. Named after the popular inner-city market in the Thai capital, these colourful little dishes come served in baskets and feature things like skewers of chicken curried in coriander, lime and coconut milk and served with rice, pork in a bittersweet sauce or a salad of beef marinated in soya and topped with mint and Thai chives. To really fit in, try the ultra-spicy house speciality of papaya salad, which is a great match for a Singha beer or a home made lemonade. For fifteen euros or so, you can do quite well.

While I can't compare Street Bangkok's street food to the real thing (never been to Thailand), I can say that everything I tried here was super good! I chose the 15 Euro menu that came with 3 chicken satay sticks (loved the thick and creamy peanut sauce), perfectly cooked rice, and a papaya salad! I admit that the papaya salad had my tongue tingling, so for those of you who can't take anything spicy I'd ask the staff to guide you to a milder choice. Cool decor, staff are cheerful and on top of that the cooks are all Thai, which must be why everything is so tasty and authentic (excluding the price; I've heard you can eat well for 3 Euros in Thailand, but hey, we're in Paris)! There's even a take-out window so you can grab a lunch box to eat along the Canal!
