Raan Jay Fai
The only only street-side restaurant to be honoured with a Michelin star, Raan Jay Fai is helmeld by 70-plus year old lady. Locals and regulars easily spot her miles away with her iconic safety goggles, worn to protect her eyes as she cooks up a storm for diners patiently in queue. Try the popular Thai crab omelette and drunken noodles – flat rice noodles fried with prawns, swirled in a delicious home blend of spicy sauce and marinated in wine.

BAAN YAI PHAD THAI
You can easily find this locals’ staple in Bangkok, but Baan Yai’s Michelin-starred street food noodles are highly prized for their depth of flavour, owing to the use of the charcoal stove. As the charcoal flames lick the wok, it lends a distinct smokiness to the award-winning noodle dish. Hailed as one of the top places to satisfy your phad thai craving, it’s no surprise that this stall has earned itself the coveted Bib Gourmand award.

GUAY JUB MR JOE
This is one for the pork lovers – the crispy pork dish earned its rightful spot on the Michelin-star list with its succulent meat, every bite accompanied by a crispy, lightly-salted layer of pork fat. Perfectly contrasted with dark sweet sauce on the side, every mouthful bursts of depth of flavour. Tip: You can also asked for this dish to be mixed into a bowl of guay jub, peppery soup noodles.

Bravely continuing his grandfather’s legacy is Mr Chanyanpat Tiveschayun, who has been serving an irresistible of mouth-watering braised beef noodles at an old shop house in Khwaeng Bang Khun Phrom. Braised for four hours before serving, you are not paying merely for a piping hot bowl of beef brisket, but also for the lifelong perfection and dedication to his craft.
