I need to do a better job at posting on this blog, as this was from a trip to Bangkok last year….

Anyway, if you find yourself at Thong Lo, an upscale area in Bangkok with quirky cafes and plenty of Japanese restaurants, this Khao Jao Thai Restaurant is one modern eatery serving pretty traditional Thai fare worth checking out.

The restaurant is located along Thong Lo 17 Alley, a stone’s throw away from a popular hipster watering hole that is The Commons. It’s air conditioned, tastefully decorated, and offers quite a good selection of traditional dishes to choose from (see menu below).

For the three of us, we had the prawn with petai, bamboo shoots yellow curry, a plate of vege, and stuffed omelet.

The petai came with pretty big and juicy prawns, with a strong, slightly sweetish belacan taste that was also spicy, a perfect combination.

Yellow curry bamboo shoot carries a slight sourish note which goes well with rice but requires some getting used to. Omelet and vege completes the meal, they did not disappoint either.

Would not hesitate to go back there again.

    Bamboo shoot in curry is new to me, but I’m akay with its distinctive taste/smell, definitely would like to try if I see it in the menu.
