Named for a street in Bangkok bursting with nightlife and excellent street eats, Khao San Road lives up to its moniker. Start with a refreshing Thai iced tea—a blend of Thai spices, black tea, and condensed milk could double as dessert. The garlic tofu might just be the vegetarian equivalent of chicken nuggets with a sweet-and-sour tamarind dip. For heartier dishes, opt for the khao soi, a dish of egg noodles in a rich coconut milk sauce; or try the warming gaeng
massaman, a tamarind-infused curry with peanuts, potatoes, and deep-fried shallots. Ingredients are sourced directly from Thailand wherever possible—you couldn't get any closer to Khao San Road without heading to Pearson International Airport.
