I have been meaning to blog about this restaurant for years and just today stumbled across some photos that I took on our last visit which reminded me.
‘This restaurant’ is called Krungthep which is the real name for Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. It was recommended to me almost four years ago by a friend and it quickly became a favourite place to eat in Ubon Ratchathani for my family and I.
It is owned and run by a husband and wife team with the husband out the back as the main chef while the wife is out front making sure everything runs smoothly, and smoothly it does.
The service has always been excellent here, attentive but not in your face. The menu is large enough to satisfy even the fussiest eater. The food obviously has a Thai slant but given the chef spent many years working in Japan there is quite a lot of Japanese food and even a few ‘farang dishes’.
Given the great service, high quality produce and nice (air conditioned) surroundings I am surprised at how low the prices are. All the food photographed below plus two plates of rice and a few bottles of water came in at a little under 600 baht ($20).
I will let my photos and captions complete the story. There is a map at the end.
