Bib Gourmand MICHELIN Guide Thailand

Savour the distinctive flavours of Charoen Krung, a sleek Bangkok neighbourhood where old world charm and modern vigour meet, through MICHELIN Guide’s selection of Bib Gourmand restaurants.

Here's why our MICHELIN Inspectors awarded the Bib Gourmand distinction to these 3 particular restaurants.

Charoen Saeng Silom (Bib Gourmand)
"Kah Mu Silom" has been serving stewed pork knuckle since 1959. What sets this shop apart from the hundreds of others is their meltingly soft, caramelised pork in a rich and aromatic gravy with Chinese herbs. Enjoy the pork with their homemade spicy sauce and pickles. Great value.

Jok Prince (Bib Gourmand)
Congee is the ultimate Asian comfort food, and one of the best bowls is at this little stall down a narrow alley. The rice porridge is topped with minced pork balls and either a raw egg or a century egg. The congee is smooth and savoury and has a smoky aroma.

Baan Phadthai (Bib Gourmand)
Baan Phadthai was founded on the lofty belief that this favourite street food dish could be elevated to a gourmet meal. The secret to their success, they claim, is a combination of 18 to 20 ingredients used in each Phad Thai they make. A variety of add-ons are available, but the organic, homemade tofu and the fresh crab are noteworthy. This polished version hasn't lost its authenticity, and this is a place where locals and tourists eat side-by-side.
