Soi Selakam Restaurants
There are many bars but just a few restaurants on this backstreet, which is really several small lanes all known as Soi Selakam. Despite the illogical street names and numbers, it’s not hard to find the restaurants below.
Blink and you’ll miss this informal place which does inexpensive Thai food and fresh coffee. The boss Oraya (also known as Pee See) is friendly and will cook the food any way you like. There are no signs outside and there doesn’t seem to be agreement on the name, but it all adds to the quirky charm.
