Must try dish: Pad Kaprao
Phed Mark specialises in a famous Thai comfort food called Pad Kaprao, which is a stir-fry dish combining holy basil (kaprao), minced meat, garlic and chillies served on rice, with a fried egg sitting on top. Although minced meat is most commonly used in pad kaprao, at Mark Wiens’ restaurant you can choose between beef, pork, Thai sour sausage, wagyu beef and even squid. Plus, there’s a vegetarian version.
“the best pad kaprao in Bangkok”
The concept came about after an evening discussing where to purchase the best Pad Kaprao in Bangkok. They couldn’t all agree so decided to open their own venue. The eatery is very popular among locals. Which is often a good sign. Come lunch time the motorbike taxi drivers, as well as others, descend on the place.
The local taxi driver next to me had the VERY Spicy (4 red chillies level) and he even added more chillies himself! I definitely reached my limit with the Medium Signature. Maybe I will be brave enough to tackle the Very Spicy on my next visit.
The dish itself is fresh, tasty and even caters to people who can’t handle the heat, right up to people who like it hot, hot, hot. They’ve also now taken over the shop next door and extended the seating area. Which shows business is booming. So, is the food really that spicy at Phed Mark? Yes! Can you also choose no spice or less spice? Yes! Is it one of the best pad kapraos in bangkok? Without a doubt, Yes!
