While I am in Bangkok, browsing a good place to dine. I come across Baan Ying from this post. Most of the blogs post related with Baan Ying are in Thai language, so I did not pay much attention. Good thing that my meeting will be held in Siam center shopping mall, so why not visit this place. So I found couple of blog post about this place and Baan Ying is famous for their traditional cooking, northen Thai style.
Baan Ying interior
Check their interior. This place is really comfortable to dine alone, or couple. They even cater for big group up to 6 people in one long table. If you come here with more than 10 people, I suggest you make reservation and they will arrange the table accordingly.
This is one of their speciality, deep fried pork belly. The pork skin is crunchy and the meat part is juicy. They cook it to perfection!! Love the balance of the meat and the fat. Although it is a bit dry to eat it alone, you need to deep to the vinegar sauce to enhance the flavour.
This is their legendary menu. Baan Ying omelet. I can say this dish is the one that I will come again to this place many time. Love the perfection of the egg, thin layer with soft taste. I order plain one so that I can taste the egg cooking. You can add on cheese, mushroom, etc for your taste.
Northern Thai is quite well known for their curry, and this green curry is the one that recommended by the waiters. There are two options you can choose. Chicken or beef. I choose chicken so that the taste of curry does not overshadow by beef taste. I really like it especially the thickness of curry and coconut milk.
You are not allowed to leave the place if you did not order this (just my thought). Mango salad is the most traditional dish in Thailand, if you want to really taste their culture. This dish is not to miss for. It is quite spicy, good thing it is not too sour. Somehow the fried salmon taste well with mango salad. I guess this is baan ying own creation.
This stir fried crab meat is another must try. Of course it is not comparable with Jay Fai crab omelette. This dish is good enough to enjoy. Sadly I went to Jay fai and only realise I did not take any photo after finish the meal T__T.
Conclusion for Baan Ying
This place is a must visit if you are nearby Siam MRT station. The price is quite premium side, but the food is worth every penny. During my dining, I did not order Thai rice, so the food is slightly salty to my taste, but that is ok and fine for me.
