Street Food with a difference!

On the recommendation of some friends we sought out Uncle John's in Sathorn District in Bangkok. We'd heard that you could eat top quality food at a very cheap price

Armed with an address and map we set out from the hotel. After an hour and a half of searching we finally found it, tucked away down a side-street not far from the local market. It was a sight for sore eyes, not only because we'd finally found it but also for the promise it held

Uncle John's is run by a chef who learnt his trade at the Sukhothai Hotel, one of the top 5 star hotels in Bangkok. He quit his job at the hotel and opened up a restaurant with the ultimate open kitchen in that it's outside on the street!

The menu reads like any top restaurant with a range of choices from French, Italian and Indian to Local Thai dishes. We ordered Pork Fillet Mignon and Beef Tenderloin followed by Mango Crepe Suzette, all washed down with a bottle of Malbec. It was delicious!

Uncle John's has got to be one of the best kept secrets in Bangkok. Whilst we wish him every success in building his business there's a little part of me that hopes it stays just as it is!
