Khua Kling Pak Sod Gaggan's Favorite Southern-Thai Restaurant in Bangkok

Khua Kling Pak Sod is a family-run casual neighborhood restaurant in the Prasanmit district in Bangkok that mostly caters to locals. The kitchen is lead by a 72-years-old aunt who’s recipes are based on the traditions of Southern Thailand, known for its particularly spicy and acidic food. This is the family’s second location, created because of the intense traffic jams in Bangkok, and was awarded a Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide. Some of my favorites on the menu were Goong Makam (spicy tamarind tiger prawns) and Nua Pu Pad Pong Karee (crab in yellow curry powder). Gaggan Anand of the well-known two-Michelin-starred restaurant Gaggan took us here because it’s one of his favorite Southern-Thai restaurants in Bangkok.
