Daeng Racha Hoi Tod Famous Bangkok Street Food
If you never heard of Daeng Racha Hoi Tod, it means your local friends didn’t tell you about this famous Bangkok street food. The owner, Mr Daeng is the fourth generation and moved his family’s Hoi Tod stall to this location 50 years ago. Hoi Tod simply means oyster or mussels omelette pancake. We called it ‘oh chien’ (Hokkien) in Malaysia and Taiwan.
Mr Daeng operated for almost 50 years while the three generations before him served Hoi Tod for more than 80 years. If you total up, this Daeng Racha Hoi Tod is over 130 years old of legacy.
Daeng Racha Hoi Tod Famous Bangkok Street Food is located at 342 Sukon 1 Alley, Talat Noi, Samphanthawong and it is minutes of walk from Wat Mangkon MRT Station and Yaowarat Road, Chinatown Bangkok. They offer both oyster and mussels omelette pancake.
It is easy to spot the stall as there are usually long queue. It is hard to get a table and hence the long wait.
Daeng Racha Hoi Tod opens from 9 am to 2.30 pm and when we reached there around noon time, the oyster omelette pancake was sold out and left the mussel omelette pancake. We manage to take the picture of the oyster omelette pancake but didn’t manage to taste it.
Their version of mussel omelette pancake is similar with our oyster omelette including their ingredients and flavours. The mussel omelette pancake is cooked to golden brown in colour and the texture is not too crispy and not too starchy but you get the crunchy texture from the beansprout. Thus, it is not that greasy so the mussel omelette pancake is very enjoyable.
Daeng Racha Hoi Tod is definitely a must visit if you are in Bangkok. The food is really good and the prices here is very affordable. The best part is most of the customers are locals so it is not commercialised yet! This is the real Bangkok street food with over 130 years of history and legacy!
For your information, visiting Bangkok Chinatown is easier now with the new MRT Blue Line Wat Mangkon Station. It is only a few minutes walk from Wat Mangkon MRT Station so it is easier and convenient to visit Bangkok Chinatown.
If you want to be more adventurous, you can stay at Grand China Hotel in Chinatown. This is probably the best hotel in Chinatown and staying here means you can explore and enjoy the amazing food in Bangkok Chinatown.
