Real, gutsy Thai food (not tourist Thai food!) and where do you eat it?

Jump to last reply

Where do you go for Thai food, eaten as spicy as Thais eat theirs, in Bangkok? I know one can add chilli at the table, however when the chilli paste is cooked by traditional means the taste is better, imho.

I usually stay at Roof View Place off Samsen Road and although there are some great food carts and of course May Kaidee's close by, I'm looking for some places as good as Sukjai and House in Sydney. Cheap, gutsy Thai food cooked for Thai's and not "dumbed down" for Western palates. When I lived on Samui I was spoilt but now I find myself not knowing where to find traditional Thai food after an absence of 2 years visiting Bangkok. I love my Thai food very spicy, pet pet. Thanks in anticipation.
