Provence in Bangkok

กรุงเทพมหานคร Provence


More boat noodles in Bangkok, this time done to perfection (as far as someone who has only tried a few bowls in Thailand can tell).


This restaurant, Provence, is in the middle of the Peninsula Plaza shopping center, in the heart of Bangkok. A very not-crowded place, this mall screamed old money. Tacky old-lady necklace shops, travel agents with worn leather sofas, and for some reason a really great open-air restaurant smack in the middle.


The soup is decadent. Congealed blood adds a ton of flavor. I would like to see some ramen shops in Japan doing something like this.


See you again, Thailand!
