My good friend Ili happened to be visiting Bangkok recently (from Siem Reap, where she owns & operates the fabulous Baby Elephant boutique hotel) and so I decided I would make the short trip in order to catch up with her over a good lunch.
It is normally really hard for me to narrow down where to eat when I visit Bangkok, but when I saw that David Thompson and Prin Polsuk had just opened a new restaurant, “Someday Everyday” not too far from where Ili was staying, AND that it seemed to have several vegan dishes that her partner would be able to choose from, it was pretty much a given that we would eat there.
David and Prin left the highly acclaimed Nahm restaurant last spring, and whilst Someday Everyday, a casual khao rad gaeng restaurant (where the dishes are out on display behind the counter and you simply point at what you want to try to the serving staff, who will liberally ladle your chosen dishes over huge portions of rice for you to enjoy) couldn’t be further removed from the Como hotels fine dining restaurant, the same great cooking is certainly on display.
The menu will showcase a rotating selection of classic Thai dishes such as Sour Orange Curry of Fish & Chinese Broccoli, Dry Green Beef Curry with White Turmeric & Cumin and Pork Ribs with Madan Leaves & Ginger.
We ordered the aforementioned Sour Orange Fish Curry, as well as an Aromatic Curry of Pumpkin & Onion with Cucumber Relish (V), Clear Soup with Cloud Ear Mushrooms, Beancurd & Asian Celery (V), Braised Asian Greens with Vermicelli (V), Prawn Dumplings with Stir-fried Mushroom Greens, Stir-fried Chicken with Bamboo & Chilli Paste and “Naam Prim Narok”, a Relish of Dried Prawns & Chillis, along with a couple of (very good) Fishcakes and a couple of Thai sweets to finish for less than 900 THB (or $28 USD) for 4 of us.
I was really impressed with all the dishes we tried and wouldn’t hesitate to visit Someday Everyday again for more delicious, simple Thai food in the relaxed yet stylish surroundings of Warehouse 30.
