Information

Upon opening, Southern restaurant Khua Kling Pak Sod was the talk of the town. But hey, what do delicate Bangkokian tongues know about Southern food? Surprisingly, the buzz was well deserved. The eatery is unapologetically Southern, hitting every spicy note, which genuine home cooking from those parts is all about. Under the rule of a matriarch chef hailing from Chumpon, the single-room restaurant is family-run: the late father’s portrait stands in the dining room, the courteous daughter takes the orders. She’ll point you to the signature dish, a Southern classic of course, khua kling, which they recommend with diced pork. It can be hazardous if you don’t watch out for the chilis, but that’s the way it’s meant to be. The green phrik kee nuu come whole and in abundance as in many of their other dishes. Tread carefully. We also like the khua kling with beef, which has a richer taste thanks to the beautifully cooked strips of meat. The famous Southern curry, gaeng leaung is the real deal (get it with fish, it’s fresh). By the time you hit the bottom of the bowl the soup turns into a thick broth of pure spice, exactly the texture a Southern yellow curry should have. The true shining moment is the phad sataw—the best in town. The paste goes from sour to spicy, pungent with the aroma of the kapi. Take things up a notch by having it with crispy pork. The fattiness of the pork is the perfect complement to the spicy paste. And, yes, the sataw are fat, fresh, juicy, green and pungent.
