Restaurant, Thai, $$$
You can start your journey in hopes of finding the best Southern Thai recipes in Bangkok at Baan Ice, located in Thonglor. Its exterior is somewhat mundane except for the large, lighted tree that sits out front. While this restaurant lacks in ornamentation, it certainly makes up for it with its delectable eats. The Thai food here is praised by locals, expats, and tourists alike, leaving diners to know that they are about to dine on some incredibly noteworthy cuisine. Baan Ice certainly makes no exceptions for foreigners in regards to how spicy they are cooking up some of their tastiest Southern Thai curries, so be sure to ask for a dish to be mai pet, or not spicy. Otherwise, diners will chow down on the noteworthy dishes just like the Southerners do—hot, spicy, and incredibly flavorful.
