Thanks to my friend @yuwachana who runs a bike-touring group @betterthanwalkthailand, we found a new favourite in the old town of Bangkok. Prang Phuthorn is one of the most charming areas there, still with lines of old, King Rama V-era buildings, lots of oldie restaurants, shops, and lifestyle. Seri is a typical jack-of-all-trade place, their crispy fried fish of all kinds are excellent, along with many other considered ‘drinking dishes’ such as fermented pork sausage stir-fried with eggs. Families come here for a hearty meal. Bring your own bottle, should you like.
