Last month when I was in Bangkok with my sister Julia, I ran her all around the city, making sure she tasted all of my favorite snacks and street food finds. I was most excited about this little gem that my friend Nhoi had shown me a while back.
In Thailand, I’ve eaten many an item that’s been flavored and scented with the powerful seasoning called five-spice. I’ve had pork shanks, chicken legs, pig trotters and duck intestines–anything can be braised in this five spice magic. But this restaurant truly serves some of the best five-spiced duck I’ve ever tasted.
If you’re in Bangkok and up for the adventure, take the BTS (or Sky Train) to the Wongwian Yai station. Once at street level, hail a tuk-tuk and ask to go to “Jarernrat soi 26 (yee sip hok).” You’ll be so happy you did.
