$$$ The Old City Thai

Fodor’s Expert Review

"Cult following" would be putting it mildly: it is said that some people come to Thailand just for a serving of the pad khee mao (drunken noodles) at this small open-air eatery with cafeteria-style tables, green bare lightbulbs, and a culinary wizard presiding over a charcoal-fired wok. The dish, which nearly everyone orders, is a rice-noodle preparation with seafood including basil, crabmeat, giant shrimp, and hearts of palm. At around B400, this is a major splurge by Bangkok noodle standards, Some diners find it wildly overpriced, though many foodies swear by it. The lump crabmeat fried with curry powder, though not as popular, is also recommended. For a real splurge, try the fresh abalone.
