When Terry Intarakhamhaeng opened Soi 38 in 2014, he took the name from Bangkok’s famous street food market. Since then, the restaurant has evolved considerably, straying from its street food origins to represent dishes from more regional and remote parts of Thailand. Intarakhamhaeng is going back to his roots with The Thai Guy, a contemporary snapshot of Bangkok’s street food scene on Magill Road.

At this casual diner, you might start with snacks like deep-fried roti swiped through a curry dip before moving onto the signature DIY betel leaf wraps clutching tofu, prawn or crispy pork. You can also expect a few Soi 38 classics like som tum (green papaya salad), Nomad Farms beef massaman and red duck curry.

The Thai Guy’s vibe is casual and chill, and a colourful mural on the wall evokes the streets of Bangkok. Lean in with Thai beers and local ones by Mismatch, or a cocktail such as the Lychee Bubbletini (vodka, vermouth, lychee, soda and lychee popping pearls) or its non-alcoholic counterpart.
