[Bangkok - Thong Lor] Soul Food Mahanakorn (Soul Food มหานคร)

The streets around Thong Lor is full of trendy cafes, restaurants and bars.

I've decided to check out Soul Food Mahanakorn. Just 3 minutes walk from BTS Thong Lo Station ( สถานีทองหล่อ).

Soul Food Mahanakorn serves authentic regional Thai Food in a comfortable setting. Ingredients are source from small farms in northeastern Thailand. They serve organic and fair trade rice, and meats are free-range.

Mieng Kham เมี่ยงคำ (250THB) 

I ordered Mieng Kham - a traditional Thai wrap . The butterhead lettuce leaves is then wrapped with chopped limes, chilies, fried garlic, peanuts, ginger, shallot, herbs, toasted grilled pork jowl and tamarind jam. The ingredients stands out in quality.

Smoked Duck Larb (280THB) & Crispy Sea Bass w/ Thai Basil and Green Peppercorns (250THB)

Larb is one of my favorite Thai dish and it's my first time having Duck Larb. Soul Food Mahanakorn's rendition is a mixture of slow-smoked organic duck breast with fresh duck tossed in a sweet /spicy dressing with herbs. The battered sea bass tasted fresh and a perfect combination with Thai basil.

Khao Soi ข้าวซอย (280 baht)

Khao Soi is a common street food in Northern Thailand. The beef brisket tasted perfect in the curry.  

Pad See Ew ผัดซีอิ๊ว (250 THB) 

Pad See Ew is the Thai version of Singapore's Char Kway Teow. It is sweeter than the Singapore version, with less wok hei essence. 

The Exile (250THB)

Soul Food Mahanakorn is a great place for drink. I ordered The Exile is a cocktail of Sky Vodka, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves and ginger ale. The lemongrass and kaffir lime leave adds the 'Thainess' to the drink.  

The ambience of Soul Food Mahanakorn is awesome with simple decor and hip atmosphere. The restaurant gets rather crowded from 19:00h with mostly tourists and expats. Definitely a place I'll visit again with great food, drinks and atmosphere. 

Food: 8.5/10
Service: 8/10
Ambience: 9/10
