Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla (เซี่ยงกี่ข้าวต้มปลา) – For many years now I’ve wanted to eat at Bangkok’s Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla (เซี่ยงกี่ข้าวต้มปลา), an old Thai Chinese restaurants in Bangkok’s Chinatown that’s known for serving fish rice soup. One of the most notable aspects of the place is that it’s been in business in the same location for over 90 years, and the second generation is still cooking and in charge of the restaurant.

Unfortunately, I was pretty sad that they didn’t have oysters the day I went – the owner mentioned to me that they weren’t fresh so they weren’t going to sell them. But that also speaks highly of the restaurant – they won’t serve anything that’s not fresh.

Pomfret rice soup (ข้าวต้มปลาจาระเม็ด) – This is their signature Thai Chinese rice soup with pomfret fish. It’s perfect in every way, one of the most soothing bowls of food you can find.

Barramundi rice soup (ข้าวต้มปลากระพง) – Another version they make is fish rice soup with barramundi fish.

Pork rice soup (ข้าวต้มบะเต็ง) – Finally, something you have to order is their pork and rice, which is salty and delicious.

Siang Ki Khao Tom Pla (เซี่ยงกี่ข้าวต้มปลา) is quite expensive, but the quality is fantastic, and one of the best things about eating here is that you’re eating at a living museum, a piece of Bangkok culinary history

Total price – 940 THB ($28.78)

  2. This place looks extremely clean for a street food vendor! I'm guessing they run a tight ship!

  3. This is well-known porridge in teochew style (teochew porridge serve in rice in soup)
    different from the porridge we normally knew.

  17. Hi Mark, another great video from Bangkok. My girlfriend and I are flying out to Thailand next month. We will be spending four nights in Bangkok. We love Thai street food and can't wait to get stuck in. We will be staying in the Sukhumvit area. I was wondering if you could recommend the best place to get crispy pork belly and crispy or roasted duck near to our location. Thanks in advance. Get wait to get back out to my favourite city in the world!! Cheers, Tim.
