Now that the main event for this trip is over, it's time to eat! I've been away from Thailand for 8 years, and I was determined to catch up on some Thai food. So I rounded up the Great One and HaoKouFu and headed for the original location of Krua Apsorn ( ครัวอัปษร) on Thanon Samsen.
Krua Apsorn came highly recommended by the local expert on Chowhound, and a quick search showed that my friend Chubby Hubby and a whole host of other bloggers and foodies are also big fans. Apparently she used to cook for the royal family before opening her own restaurant, so I figured we can't go wrong with this place. The location is a little far from where we're staying, as it's near the National Library in the very old part of Bangkok - and therefore inaccessible by BTS or MRT. Thankfully there wasn't much traffic, and we made it easily by taxi.
I had done a little bit of homework and came up with 3 dishes I wanted to order, and the others came up with the dishes that they wanted.
