We spend a lot of time around Khao San road as it’s so close to where we live and over the year we’ve been introduced to some great places that many people don’t get round to seeing.
It’s not all about the bucket bars and if you take a few extra seconds to look around there is far more quality to Khao San Road than first meets the eye. So over the next few months we figured we’d mention a few of our favourite places you should try and check out if you’re in the area.
We already started this with our post about Ranees, one of our favourite restaurants on Khao San and now we have another food recommendation for you.
We were first introduced to Shoshana Restaurant on a travel bloggers meet up of all things and instantly fell in love with the food (or Kirsty did anyway, I wasn’t feeling so great that night).
Originally opening as a guesthouse the owners began cooking Israeli food to accommodate the large amount of Israeli guests they had and it grew from there with the food getting such great reviews.
Despite being tucked away the restaurant is always busy with Thais and tourists alike, which says enough in itself. However, with plenty of seating on two floors as well as an outside area you should always be able to find a seat.
Probably the most surprising thing about this place however is the cost. Usually at a restaurant specialising in a certain type of food you would expect increased prices but Shoshana Restaurant remains well within the budget travellers range.
Since our first visit we have returned most weeks and introduced many friends to Shoshana, all of who have loved it and are subsequently hooked as well.
My recommendation? Get the falafel pita (or you can order falafel with two sides and a pita for a larger portion) while Kirsty would recommend either the schnitzel or shawarma. If you fancy a night off the beer the fruit shakes are great too.
How to find Shoshana Restaurant
If you head to the end of Khao San Road on the side nearest the river, where the police station should be marked on any map and head towards Rambutri street.
Shoshana Restaurant is located down an alley way on your right hand side around halfway along, you will see an internet café/tour office on the corner.
We hope you enjoy this place as much as we do – If you do get round to eating here be sure to pop back and let us know what you thought!
