 Away from Bangkokians' cherished sweeter flavors and back towards the roots of Northern Isaan.

Well-executed Isaan food in a more polished setting isn’t a groundbreakingly novel idea, but few places do it as well as this friendly eatery in the central business district. Owner Thanaruek Laoraowirodge (also of Supanniga Eating Room) brings the strong, vibrant flavors of his native Khon Kaen to Bangkok with the help of chef Kornthanut Thongnum, resulting in a parade of varied som tam, laab and tom sab that rival anything to be found on the street.
