Weng (Woeng Nakhon Kasem) Crab Fried Rice Yaowarat Road Chinatown Bangkok
Time to share some hidden gem to our readers. This is recommended by our local Thai friends in Chinatown Bangkok and it is not popularised by bloggers or Youtubers. This is Weng (Woeng Nakhon Kasem) and they are popular for their Crab Fried Rice and they are located at the end of Yaowarat Road Chinatown Bangkok.
Weng is the push cart roadside stall located at 140, Yaowarat Road, Chinatown Bangkok. You can easily spot the lonely pushcard roadside stall with many food delivery boys waiting for the food.
They are open for dinners only, every day from Monday until Sunday. We visited this place before COVID-19 so we dine in as they provide a couple of tables and chairs.
In case you didn’t know, Weng (Woeng Nakhon Kasem) is also awarded Bib Gourmand by the Michelin Guide Thailand 2020. For those who followed our blog, we discover many street food and hidden gem with The Michelin Guide Thailand. Not everything listed under The Michelin Guide must be posh, fancy and expensive.

For those who can’t speak Thai, they have the English menu. There are three things you must order; the fried rice with crab meat, fried noodle Hong Kong style with crab meat and fried fish maw with crab meat.
We ordered the fried rice with crab meat and fried noodle Hong Kong style with crab meat for 90 Baht each.
You can watch the Youtube video and see how they cook the fried rice and fried noodles.
The fried rice with crab meat is good enough for one person. What we like about Thai fried rice is it comes with lime that gives acidic flavour onto the rice. The fried rice is fragrant and we enjoyed every spoon of it. You get flavours from the egg, tomato and the pepper but overall, this is comfort food. Thai street food style, affordable pricing and tasty!
The fried noodle Hong Kong style with crab meat is next. The dry style fried noodles comes with cabbage and crab meat. It looks simple but you won’t be disappointed with the al dente texture noodles and the taste is just spot on. This noodles will make you keep on eating.
Weng (Woeng Nakhon Kasem) is not a fancy restaurant, it is just a push cart style street food in Chinatown and you won’t be disappointed with their food!

This Wat Mangkon Station is just minutes away from the main road of Bangkok Chinatown.
The design of the Wat Mangkon MRT Station is ‘Oriental’ theme that reflects Chinatown’s culture and design.

We stayed at Grand China Hotel, a four star hotel in Chinatown Bangkok. It is near the MRT station and located along the main Yaowarat Road of Chinatown Bangkok. The best part is their room is huge and the hotel rates are very reasonable. Get the best deal with Agoda.com at https://www.agoda.com/grand-china-hotel/hotel/bangkok-th.html?cid=1538606
