00:39 Doy Kuay Teow Reua (ร้านต้อยก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือ) – To begin the day in Bangkok we started off by going to one of my favorite boat noodles restaurants in Bangkok called, Doy Kuay Teow Reua (ร้านต้อยก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือ), which is located just a 10 minute walk from Victory Monument and boat noodle alley. I usually eat a few bowl of kuay teow reua sen lek nam tok (ก๋วยเตี๋ยวเรือเส้นเล็กหมูน้ำตก), Thai boat noodles with the medium sized rice noodles – that’s my favorite boat noodle noodle. Another thing they serve at the restaurant is khanom thuay (ขนมถ้วย), which is a bowl snack dessert made with coconut. It’s quite good if you enjoy Thai desserts and sweets.

7:33 Koh Kret (เกาะเกร็ด) – Open and busiest on the weekends, Koh Kret (เกาะเกร็ด) is an island in the middle of the Chao Phraya River just on the outside of Bangkok located in Nonthaburi at Pak Kret. From Bangkok’s Victory Monument, we jumped onto a bus and we rode all the way to Pak Kret, and then from there we jumped on the back of a motorbike to save time, and then onwards to a quick ferry ride across the river and to Koh Kret (เกาะเกร็ด). Koh Kret (เกาะเกร็ด) is a little bit on the Thai touristy side, it’s kind of like a floating market, but instead of boats and floatings, it’s an island market. It’s a good place to just walk around and explore especially on the weekends when you’re in Bangkok. Again, just like Bang Krachao, even though you’re so close to Bangkok, you feel far removed.

13:18 Soei (ร้านเส่ย) Restaurant – One of my favorite restaurants in all of Bangkok and one of the best restaurants in Bangkok is Soei (ร้านเส่ย), located along the railroad track at Samsen station. I’ve been eating at Soei (ร้านเส่ย) and every time I go, I just can’t get over how delicious the Thai food is. If you love spicy and flavorful Thai food, this is a must eat at restaurant. One of the dishes that very famous at Soei is kaem pla too tod (แก้มปลาทูทอด), which are mackerel cheeks that are deep fried with garlic and served like crispy fish head chips. Another dish I ordered this meal at Soei was gaeng ba pla (แกงป่าปลา), Thai jungle curry with fish. He makes one of the best versions in Bangkok – it’s spicy, pungently flavorful, and packed with herbs and spices. But the ultimate dish to eat at Soei is boo neem pad pongari (ปูนิ่มผัดผงกะหรี่), soft shell crab in a Thai yellow egg curry, it’s EPIC, there’s no other way to put it. The soft shell crab was tender and the curry was outrageously delicious, with a great flavor of yellow curry powder, and the egg making things ever richer and more flavorful. Finally another dish that I have to order every-time I eat at Soei is yam kai dao (ยำไข่ดาว), Thai fried egg salad, and it’s made perfectly here. The egg is crunchy on the outside, and soft on the inside. It’s just insanely delicious. Soei (ร้านเส่ย) is easily one of my favorite restaurants in all of Bangkok.

23:05 Ratchadamnoen Stadium (สนามมวยราชดำเนิน) – Even though I’ve been based in Bangkok since 2009, one thing I had never done is go to a Muay Thai match, and so after the best meal ever, Ying and I went to Ratchadamnoen Stadium (สนามมวยราชดำเนิน) for an evening of Muay Thai. It was pretty interesting, and along with the fights, the dancing rituals that go along with Muay Thai are also very interesting to see.

  1. I just finished a jungle curry with pork tenderloin. However, I couldn’t find a couple of the ingredients here in Atlanta. (I need to keep looking.) The Thai eggplant, the long beans, and even the diced Butternut squash were undercooked in my dish – at least according to the recipe I found. (Perhaps I should keep looking for another recipe as well.) I know this can be a better dish than a first-timer like me cooked. So, I’ll have to keep practicing and hunting. Wish me luck!

  2. I love boat noodles. I'd love to have some in Thailand one day. Also, I just wanted to say, your wife is so beautiful.

  3. OMG its just an egg. There is nothing special about it at all. Most Asian people seem to eat a whole fried egg in one mouth full as a part of meal all the time, especially the S Koreans.

  4. i don't like egg yolks…egg whites are great though; am I the only one…his reactions to food are too much…but he does give nice details…

  5. that victory monument is like bundaran HI in my country ^^
    a statue in the middle with lot of traffic.
    really love all your food review and eating, mark!

  6. Thank you Mark for recommending the boat noodle place, I watched this episode by accident and happened to have a slack morning while in BKK a couple of weeks ago..it was our first time to eat boat noodle and try out all those snacks and crackers, it was so much fun and authentic that we felt like locals! Thank you Mark and pls dig out more places to bring that happiness! LOVE you and Ying!

  7. Layne…I haven't seen any of your NEW travel videos on the Youtube channel lately…what's up???…your buddy Lester from California:}

  8. My family and I we watch your video at least once a day. I love foods and I cant wait to visit Thailand. Keep up the great work!!!!❤️

  9. Many years ago my husband and I were in Bangkok and we ate at a restaurant that when you went in they gave you a cart and you picked out your vegetables and your seafood. The fish was still alive flopping on the refrigerated counter. You checked out giving them your cart. We passed through a line of chefs cooking on woks flaming up while they cooked the food. We were led to an outside beautiful area with white tablecloth covered tables. When your food was cooked it arrived hot and very tasty, I had jumbo prawns and a wonderful fruit I had never seen to this day. I was wondering if that restaurant still existed. It was a wonderful experience Thank you Mark and your beautiful wife for providing the travel and food experience we could only dream of.


  10. I love how Mark focuses on the best food, and isn’t into vested interests or being paid off by restaurants to promote them. It’s interesting that some of the best food is actually from some of the cheapest most down to earth restaurants.

  11. I love your ability to interact with the viewer. You mentioned the fight and I said oh wow the right then you said yeah I know I've never seen one. Your awesome. Keep it up.
