On’s Thai Issan offers an amazing array of meat-free regional food and a cooking school. It’s possible to choose three dishes from the menu to learn to make. Don’t worry if you’re no Gordon Ramsay, the teacher here is patient, friendly, and a master in the kitchen.
Dining in Zeb Zeb is a chance for travelers to immerse themselves in Kanchanaburi’s regional culinary culture. Locals occupy most of the tables here, with tourist faces a relatively rare occurrence beneath the timber pagoda dining hall. Unlike the other tourist restaurants featuring fancy design and fusion dishes, real Thai food is served here in a shabby, rickety wooden hut. Famous dishes like papaya salad, crispy pork and spring rolls are offered at wallet-friendly prices. And in case you find it all a little too spicy, fresh veggies are served for free.
Meat & Cheese offers a change from Thai cusine. If you fancy an Italian pizza or an all-American steak give it a try. From t-bone to fillet, all crispy and caramelised on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside, to cheese-topped pizza and fries, Meat & Cheese has it all. And if you still want to add a dash of the old Siam to your meal, try the steamed bass served piping from the grill.
The Hut is a local restaurant that offers Western cuisine like garlic bread, nuggets, spaghetti and steak at great prices. A world apart from upscale chain restaurants, The Hut is a small, welcoming venue with just six tables, providing a relaxed atmosphere for friends and families to chill in while enjoying tasty dishes. While The Hut might be celebrated for its laid-back vibe, the food and friendly staff are sure to leave an impression!
As the name suggests, this restaurant has at least a dash of the Francophone. Indeed, the chef is from France but don’t worry, he can also cook delicious Thai food. There are around 20 choices on the menu in total, half of which hail from Europ, steak and fries for example, while the remaining portion is Southeast Asian through-and-through, massaman curry, pad Thai. The waiting time may be a bit long, but the food really is worth it.
