The bustling Ekkamai party stretch is home to this pad thai joint that’s popular among supper seekers. The river prawn pad thai ($6) is neither too dry nor wet and is served with two jumbo size prawns while the smoky and sweet noodles are wrapped in an omelette.

Pad Thai Goong Sod Nai Sa Nga
Two years ago, the owners of Pad Thai Goong Sod Nai Sa Nga switched from selling kuay jub (rice noodle soup) and por pia sod (spring rolls) to making pad thai. It’s been a hit ever since. Each plate comes generously padded with chunky tofu, dried shrimp and succulent prawns.

The old-school pushcart parked in front of Kikuya clothing boutique in Sam Peng has been churning out fried noodle since your parents were kids. Forget the original recipe that incorporates tamarind paste and roasted peanuts – here, the pad thai is cooked on a charcoal stove and served with Thai chive and banana flower for crunch and acidity.
