Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla (เซี่ยงกี่ข้าวต้มปลา) – For many years now I’ve wanted to eat at Bangkok’s Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla (เซี่ยงกี่ข้าวต้มปลา), an old Thai Chinese restaurants in Bangkok’s Chinatown that’s known for serving fish rice soup. One of the most notable aspects of the place is that it’s been in business in the same location for over 90 years, and the second generation is still cooking and in charge of the restaurant.

Unfortunately, I was pretty sad that they didn’t have oysters the day I went – the owner mentioned to me that they weren’t fresh so they weren’t going to sell them. But that also speaks highly of the restaurant – they won’t serve anything that’s not fresh.

Pomfret rice soup (ข้าวต้มปลาจาระเม็ด) – This is their signature Thai Chinese rice soup with pomfret fish. It’s perfect in every way, one of the most soothing bowls of food you can find.

Barramundi rice soup (ข้าวต้มปลากระพง) – Another version they make is fish rice soup with barramundi fish.

Pork rice soup (ข้าวต้มบะเต็ง) – Finally, something you have to order is their pork and rice, which is salty and delicious.

Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla (เซี่ยงกี่ข้าวต้มปลา) is quite expensive, but the quality is fantastic, and one of the best things about eating here is that you’re eating at a living museum, a piece of Bangkok culinary history

Total price – 940 THB ($28.78)

  1. Watching that older women handle that cooked fish with her bare hands was painful. It was still steaming! I'm sure she's used to the heat by now, but my fingertips were screaming with pain just watching her grab the pieces like it was nothing

  2. Im always watching your video in the office while waiting for the lunch time, and it is make my lunch even taste better

  3. Mark, could you next time please include something like a "scotty, beam me up" one-click-function or so? I want to beam myself to the places where you eat, when I watch your video!

  4. "Oysters we dont have, they were rotten and stinky, I returned them."

    This is essentially saying, "I respect your tastes, and I won't sell you something that is crap even if I could make a quick buck out of it."

    The mark of a great chef/cook…

  5. Hey Mark, love your videos and think you are a genuinely lovely guy, but I'd really love to see more vegetarian and vegan foods. I love Thai food, and living in Bangkok, I love the culture and atmosphere surrounding street food, however it seems really good veggie options are difficult to come by! I've had to stop watching your videos now because I'm not a fully fledged vegetarian

  6. Hi Mark, like your youtube recommending Thailand nice food. I got one suggestion to you. To make a food recommendation video that is nearby BTS or Metro in Bangkok.
