There has been a lot of talk about homestyle kitchens in Bangkok of late, to the point where it feels like you're being short changed by a dish that isn't couriered in from the countryside directly to your table. But there's no need to feel left out for not having a grandma at home to cook for you, as one kitchen in Thong Lor is more than making up for it, bringing slices of rare regional Thailand to the big city.
Supanniga Eating Room opened its doors late last year and has engaged a steady flow of guests since. The concept is simple, like most restaurants of longevity - specific cuisine done well. So why does it achieve what many other places are trying to mimic? It's the real deal, sourced directly from its origins, and executed with a proud panache.
Wedged between a massage house and medical clinic, its interior is a considered conversion of a shophouse, with a distinct Northeastern (Khon Kaen) flavour. The design follows the legacy of its namesake hotel in Khon Kaen opened four years earlier. Without being cluttered, all three floors are tastefully decked out with furniture, artworks and design motifs that have a welcoming and transporting effect. There is room enough for 75 pax, and while downstairs is often full, everywhere becomes full towards weekends, so it's worth booking, even for lunch.
