This was my maiden visit to an Isaan restaurant. The Krok is located at Siam Square. They are not as popular as the much sought after Som Tam Nua @ Siam Square Soi 5. But the latter is also notorious for letting diners queuing up for as long as 30 minutes or longer outside its restaurant. We gave it a miss since time wasn't on our side, as we have a movie to catch later. While we prowled lane by lane for food, we chanced upon The Krok at Soi 2.

The three-storey restaurant, serves mainly Isaan cuisine, is minimalist in design. Each storey has its color theme which is eye-catching and loud. The ground floor was painted in my favorite lime green color.

Our first dining at Ging Kalpapruek was dated back in 2006. I recalled that we unknowingly ordered a potage with coagulated pork blood which both of us are absolutely not in to it. Otherwise, I haven't had much impressions after that.

I was at the food court of Siam Paragon on the New Year eve. The place was over-crowded and it was difficult to reserve/find a seat since I was alone. Eventually, I settled for a dine-in at Ging Kalpapruek Thai Restaurant which was also on the same floor. It could be a little more expensive but I know I don't have to queue for food and compete for a table.

About THAIoholic

THAIoholic, the blog, is setup with the initial intention of keepsake. As time goes by, I find it harder and harder for my gray cells (of what left) to remember traces of great places we have been to, good foods we savored but missed, details that I should remember but they slipped away unknowingly.

Then, we have also friends and folks asking little details I thought I should blog them here, because my pea brain is simply no good at recollections.

My partner is a devoted Buddhist, his religion forbids him, and therefore me, from taking beef. As such, it's unlikely that there will be any info about beef dish found in this blog.
