Thailand Food – SomTam Papaya Salad Restaurant

Category : Thailand Bangkok

Last but not least, authentic Thai food in Thailand! Haha…I know I know, all the food I’ve introduced so far isn’t really Thai food per se but hey, they’re good nonetheless 🙂

SomTam is another long queue place introduced by our lovely Relationship Manager. She said that the queue can get very long during weekend dinners! Luckily we were there on a weekday~

SomTam is a short walk away from Siam Paragon. In fact I can see the Siam Paragon logo from SomTam. And they have a good selection of Thai food at very affordable prices.

Beside good food and good prices, they are also very tourist friendly and provides 2 types of menu. 1 with pictures for folks like us, another with a list of everything they offer. Like!

First up, Tom Yum Soup. It’s also known as Northeast Style Spicy Soup with Pork Bone in SomTam’s menu. The soup is savoury and slightly spicy. It’s nice that the spice is not overpowering so we can still taste the tom yum flavour. On the other hand, this may not be good for folks who really like it super hot & spicy.

Next is the carbo dish and boy is this calories well spent! SomTam’s Stir Fried Thai Rice-flour noodles is simply delicious! This is one of the dishes we ordered again on our 2nd visit. *Nods*

And here’s the ultimate highlight of our meal *drumroll* SomTam’s Fried Chicken!! These deep fried chicken wings are simply divine and a must have if you dine at SomTam. In fact it was so good that we ordered a 2nd serving in the same meal and our 2nd visit!

Because the Thai restaurant name is SomTam, two SomTam dishes were also ordered. Somtam with Dry Shrimp & Peanut and Shredded Green Mango Somtam. Hmmm…I’m not a fan of Thai papaya/mango salad so I shall decline to comment.

What I will say though is that none of us liked this dish – Fried Northeastern Style Sausage. I dislike the flavour & the texture. Avoid.

Finally, fish. We had the Hot & Spicy Crispy Fried Nil Fish and Crispy Fried Fish on our 1st and 2nd visit respectively. Personally I prefer the latter. Crispy, fresh, yummy, satisfied!
