Tom yum soup in Bangkok is one of the dishes that make a name for the cuisine of Thailand. So don't miss the chance to taste this dish when visiting Bangkok. Let's find out the 5 best places to try Tom Yum in Bangkok.

There is no doubt that Tom Yum Goong in Bangkok is the most famous Thai food globally. "Tom" in Thai means "to boil," and "yum" means a combination of ingredients to create. Therefore, the combination of "tom" and "yum" will generate an excellent soup with a spicy and sour Thai flavor. Besides, if we put the word "Goong," which means shrimp in Thai, we will have tom yum with soup made from shrimp and seafood. Sounds interesting, right? Let's explore the best tom yum soup in Bangkok restaurant.

4. Jay Oh Chula

Although this restaurant sells night food, customers who have to wait in line for at least 45 minutes to be served or have to wait for seats, however, the staff here is still very welcoming, and delicious food is a significant point in the hearts of diners.

Tom Yum Mama's famous bowl of noodles is made from instant noodles, added shrimp, squid, pork, meatball, eggs, and spices typical of Tom Yum. If you are not a spicy foodie, you should remind the chef to reduce the spicy as much as possible because the food here is very spicy.
