Locating specific types of street food in Bangkok usually requires time and honing skills, since individual sellers typically specialize in one dish and recipes vary. But at Soul Food Mahanakorn, owner and food writer Jarrett Wrisley has already done the legwork by bringing together the tastiest Thai hawker food under one roof. Made with only the freshest ingredients primarily sourced from small organic farms, the menus feature classics such as som tam and satay. There are also some new takes on old favorites, including grapow made with lamb.
The signature cocktails infused with Thai herbs and other regional flavors are also worthy of making a special stop here. Try The Exile composed of Stoli, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, and ginger ale, or sip on a fruity Lycheegrass Collins made with gin, lychee liqueur, fresh lemongrass, lime, and soda.
