Ya Kun Laksa and Mee Siam in Bangkok

I passed by Ya Kun at Mercury Ville countless times, and was drawn to their advertised Singapore Laksa. Price has always been a deterrent, until yesterday.

Thanks D for entertaining my whims, and for forking 400 baht for our lunch.

There’s a price to pay for my cravings. 200-baht-set-meal is not your everyday-lunch kind of food. Sigh. Malaysian/Singaporean food is not widely available in Thailand, unlike Thai food in other countries.

Ya Kun’s set meal comes with a Ya Kun Signature Drink.


My Laksa .. slightly salty soup, and noodle texture is off


D’s Mee Siam

Singapore Laksa for me, and Mee Siam for him. No sambal provided.


240 baht Kaya Jar

240 baht selling price for a jar of kaya! Daylight robbery!! The selling price at Singapore is around SGD 5 / 130 baht only.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.

        Hi WK Swee,

        I chanced upon the restaurant .. HD (stands for Hok Dee) at The Street Ratchada today. Their laksa is definitely much better than Ya Kun!
