Those backpackers types don't know what a decent pad thai is, as most of them never leave the area anyway.

Funny enough if you go past Kho san to Golden mount (wat saket ) then down  Mha Chai road theres a restaurant called "Tipsamai"  thats supposedly the premier Pad thai restaurant, its only a shop house but very popular

Well look at suk 20 years ago re nightlife from where you started at soi zero- Sukhumvit Sq, Clinton Plaza, Checkinn99, Asoke corner, soi 23, Nana disco, Washington sq, Queens Park Plaza and others too many to mention all gone. Now you have the ridiculously over priced Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy, the tatty beer garden and and the Thermae a shadow of it's former self. In ten years even those places may well be history. The cats will still be around 😛

Yeah no city should ever do away with poorly built bars under a highway filled with prostitutes in the middle of their city 

 

I mean, the gall of them!

Don't they know some farang from wherever is going to be real pissed he can't go to a bar under a bridge anymore????

By the way

I loved all those places you mentioned 

I saw most of them at the tail end of their glory years

 

I just don't fault a city for deciding to get rid of the hooker bars under the bridge 5555

I walked past it one night and bought their chilli sauce which was good, I like a good pad thai but I don't seek it out on a regular basis. Then again last time I ate in Khao San Road it was a pad thai cooked by a very old lady who was the only place open in the whole street the time I was shooting (and she sold beer)

Funny enough, I didn't eat Pad Thai until around 15 years coming to Thailand 

 

I sort of perceived it as "tourist food "

 

Then I got it the 1st time from this fairly well-known Pad Thai lady in Kamala, she's been making only Pad Thai for 20+yrs

The very first time I came to Thailand was in 1982 and the first Thai food I ate was Pad Thai + Mango with sticky rice. In the afternoon also tried Durian and have  loved it all ever since which may partially explain in those days I was 72 kg and now I'm  87 kg

Whilst the rest of Thailand will always have the Thai "karaoke" bars in every town or village for which they are world renowned catering for Thais that represent around 90% of all prostitution in Thailand

I don't even understand what you mean.....

 

I just always heard tourists saying they love Pad Thai but never heard a Thai really speak about it

So never really tried it

Then I had it and loved it, but very picky with it also

I don't like it too wet, which some places catering to westerners seem to make it

I like it a but dry

 

As for me being a backpacker? I'm about the complete opposite of that

Although I wish I did the whole hostel scene when I was younger, I didn't know about it, then looked down on it when I started traveling at 25yrs old

Wish i hadn't..............

Some backpackers avoid touristy things  in an attempt to remain credible amongst the backpack community .

  Like, avoiding holiday makers at all costs

Oh, I think you are reading too much into it(well to me) 555

 

Just never had a desire to try it, just like hot dogs/pretzels are a tourist thing in NYC

And accepted tradition forever. 

A local thing that has little to do with the tourism s**t.

You might try the home editions, as many have been creating their own everyday versions for decades. 

For everyone that makes Pad Thai [and everything else] there's a different way of making it. 

Outside of the stereotyped signature dish.

Avoid Farang [especially residents] at all costs.

I have a Thai food truck right outside my office, she only makes 4 items and her pad thai is exactly how I like it

The Old City aka Rattanakosin Island. The landmarks, temples, monuments, buildings, canals, bridges, streets. There’s a lot to see and learn, it can be overwelming so I’ve done it all for you, and explained it all too. Now you can go on Mastermind with your specialist subject ‘’Bangkok: The Old City’’
