This guy’s the master, this place is called “Kitaro” and if you were looking for sushi well, then you found the right place here in Bangkok. It’s just of this side alley here in uh off of that Sukhumvit Soi 26, Sukhumvit just a half a block that way feels like I’m in blade runner the rains starting to come down a little bit the signs here are fully in Japanese this place. I love sushi, I lived in LA bit of a sushi snob due to that experience I gotta be honest the sushi in Bangkok generally is a little bit disappointing that’s my opinion and so when I found this place last year it just uh really really made me happy because not only is it good as I’m talking I’ll show you some shots of the experience in there which was it’s really fun, it’s super Japanese. The chef’s from Osaka, he’s got a first mate and a second in charge that he’s training up a whole fleet of uh hostesses in geisha uniforms that all yell at you when you come in it’s it’s a really fun atmosphere, it’s usually pretty busy and it’s remarkably great value so they have all kinds of things on the menu from I think it was whale tongue to ovary of puffer fish in vinegar and salt or something like this but haley and I came for the nigiri all other nigiri is 120 baht per two pieces so for you sushi lovers out there, you start to calculate that that’s quite the deal compared to most places around the world and compared to most places in Bangkok that’s quite the deal 120 baht that’s less than four dollars for every order of a double two-piece nigiri and yes! that includes toro and yes that includes uni believe that one uni for 120 baht the way that they get around that is they put a little small portion of uni in which Haelee and I were happy about because the only other way around it is to serve crappy uni which they don’t do the uni was great in there. Every time we’ve been in here the uni’s been nice and fresh brought in from Hokkaido, I think he said so this place is a very reasonably priced sushi joint closest BTS station is Phrom Phong but we got a map icon that you can click to come and find this place and so far for me it’s uh it’s awesome it’s a regular on my sushi hit list.

 

Additional Information

Bangkok, Thailand has some of the most epic shopping anywhere on earth. Many of these massive mall complexes would put their counterparts in Europe or North America to shame. The Holy Grail of Bangkok shopping is IconSiam. This is a newly built architectural masterpiece located right on the east side of the Chao Praya river across from central Bangkok. It has anything and everything that you could think of. Whether you’re looking to purchase something from a luxury brand like Gucci, Chanel, Fendi, Rolex, etc. or simply want a basic Tee from Uniqlo, this place has it all. You can even buy a Ferrari right in the mall if you’re looking to spend some serious coin. There’s also an epic food court on the ground level of IconSiam which features all sorts of tasty Thai treats that you can get at street food prices. One thing that’s actually quite common across many Bangkok shopping centers is to have at least one or two food courts that act more like Thai markets than they do a typical eating area. The food in these areas are both tasty and cheap. The reason that these exist is because the developers or owners of these massive shopping complexes want to drive as much foot traffic as possible inside of their real estate. So, they give significant rent breaks to the vendors that would normally have to compete for space in an outdoor market. What ends up happening is that residents find a specific vendor or restaurant that they like, and make it a weekly routine to go and enjoy some food from that specific location, inside of whatever mall it exists in. The food courts inside of these malls actually become attractions on their own, resulting in more foot traffic inside of the mall.
