Everyday cuisine


Let’s face it, you would have to be seriously unlucky to get bad Thai food at this price point (unless you’re ordering from a touristhea­vy restaurant with a menu written in English, that is). To save yourself any potential heartache, it’s a good idea to consult the Michelin Guide’s Bib Gourmand list which is essentiall­y a list of places serving exceptiona­l food for next to nix (58 eateries in Bangkok made it onto the list this year) and get thee to a tuk tuk. On the list? Baannai Hotel which serves old family favourites in a stunning Thai wooden house with decorated garden, and Phuket’s Mor Mu Dong, a rustic joint pleasing the masses with local seafood options.

Just remember flavour profiles are a matter of preference so be sure to say ‘Mai pet’ if you’d like them to the be less generous with their use of chilli (no promises, of course).
