Alphabetical? Is that even a ranking? Are menus usually "ranked"? Learn something new every day.

No they're not. That was my point...

So the crab meat omelette at 1,000 baht is not up for discussion? 😉

 

 

More of a celebrity/food vlogger joint. Never been.

I totally agree that Tom Yum Kung is delicious and deserves to be high on the list, but to mention CNN in the same breath is a complete joke. CNN are proven liars, ask the Covington kids, they cannot be trusted!

 

So no soup for you?

 

You've got my head spinning.

But the list is a failure if it doesn't include Khao Soi.

Yes indeed, and my favorite Thai dish when I lived in Lanna. However, with respect, can it really be called a "soup" with the thick base of soft noodles and crispy noodles in the topping? IMO it is more a substantial meal than a soup but I may be wrong.

Khao Soi: 15 Min Thai Coconut Curry Chicken Noodle Soup

China’s wonton soup,

Sorry it's the wonton and not the soup that make this dish famous. Everyone can do the soup but not everyone can prepare the fillings that are mostly done by hand and cook delicious wonton.

The photogrph is not genuine Tom Yam Kung as any Thai will tell you, it is Tom Yam adulterated with canned milk or canned coconut likely or unlikely butter/cream/yoghurt or yesterday margerine,

Tom Yam is neither a consomme, soup nor a cooler like a gazpacho or a Vichysoisse but a broth.https://www.merriam-webster.com › dictionary › broth

The meaning of BROTH is liquid in which meat, fish, cereal grains, or vegetables have been cooked 

Tom Yam however  is one of my favourites here if home made.

Ofc course anyone can label or add anything but in my view cream, milk or coconut are not part of the recipe as others note. Equally good and not hard to make, Vichysoisse, Cullen Skink, Pea and Ham and of course the pinnacle of all Sopa de Mariscos the Lobster Bisque.

 

as Tom Yummy said" LOS for  all the broths , broth all its got the lot".

I had Sicilian shredded chicken soup for breakfast just now.

Just right on a chilly morning.

I really like the Thai noodle soup with shredded chicken. They put spring onions and fried garlic in it. They don't always use shredded chicken and I avoid those that don't.

Very good point.  All I know is it is my favorite dish in Thailand.

Ha ha... not today, or tomorrow, or the next day...😉

This come up a few years ago ,when Bangkok got  its first Egon Ronnie 5 star awards .

The menu was wrote in Egon Ronnie speak ,but as mtls2005 said it was basically a crab meat omelette,at 1000 baht.

Must agree a good Tom Yam takes some beating ,but who come up with the idea of putting evaporated milk in it ,some restaurants  near here do it ,very nice  to,a bit different from the wife's Chow Bann ,village recipe.

And with reference to the Mae Prom chili paste recommendation on the previous page, there is this version for the "Hi! I'm vegetarian" crowd:

Does anyone watch CNN ?

Apparently about 1.5 million less aday now. About as much credibility as the WHO

Thai cuisine is greatly overrated. 

That says more about your palate than it does about Thai cuisine.

(That said, there's no single such thing as "Thai cuisine".  It's highly regional.)
