Best Pad Thai in Bangkok

There's not much good I can say about the Khao San Road area of Bangkok. Brash, vulgar, noisy. And that's just the Westerners. It's OK if you want a suit, though...you're not short of people trying to fit you up (literally AND financially, I imagine). The street food is pretty good, though...whether it's noodles, rice or the delicious fresh fruit shakes.

But there's one place any visitor should go. Top of KS Rd, turn right, and there's an open air kitchen 20 yards further on where you can sit down. This little old lady's got some serious skills with the local food.

So if you're in Bangkok...pay her a visit. Mention the lardy Englishman who gave her a kiss on the cheek as he left, and I may just get commission...payable in Pad Thai Shrimp please, Missus...
