Good Till the Last Bite
When I lived in Bangkok
, I chose my apartment due to one important factor: it was close to a restaurant my friends affectionately dubbed "Pumpkin Lady" because of the stuffed pumpkin desserts. The dining experience is hyper-local; food is served in a makeshift living room of Pumpkin Lady's house and the wok is set up just outside the entrance under a green awning. The restaurant is well worth trekking to and it's an easy walk from Victory Monument BTS. Make sure you try their deliciously fiery tom yum soup, galam bee pad kai sai moo saap (fried cabbage, minced pork, egg) and pad pongali.
