This is Bangkok’s only street hawker to have received a star from the famed Michelin inspectors. But even before they bestowed that honor in 2018, this rudimentary shophouse (next to Thipsamai Phad Thai) was legendary. It is operated by Jay Fai who is now in her 70s; she is the adorable Thai woman hunched over the blistering woks. (Her signature goggles are to protect her eyes from the splashing oil.) Fai’s father started the shop when she was just a young tot and she carries on the family business, and recipes, today. The pat kee mow (drunkard’s noodles) and the crab omelet are her signature dishes, and they are terrific. Reservations are essential, but even with them you’ll likely still wait an hour once you arrive, so plan accordingly.
