As a foreigner, I like to find places in Bangkok where Thais hang out! So when I discover a cosy place with delicious food in a Thai atmosphere, I am the happiest one!
Somtum Der literally means “Papaya Salad from Isaan” and is as well a great restaurant located in Silom specialized in… guess what? Isaan food!
I knew about this place in the Where Thailand Magazine. Every month, it features dining places listed by price ranges. As an intern here, I always look for the “cheap” places and that’s how I ended up in Somtum Der!
The decoration is cosy, the service friendly and the cuisine authentic and really tasty. Located at the beginning of Silom Road, you can easily get there by MRT Silom or BTS Sala Daeng. So don’t wait to try this nice restaurant in Bangkok!
