The Best Tom Yum in Thailand – I know it’s a bold statement, but for me, after eating dozens and dozens and possibly hundreds of versions of tom yum in Thailand, this is the best of the best that I’ve ever had. It wins hands down for its pureness of taste, quality of ingredients, epic harmony of flavors.

Sena, Ayutthaya, Thailand (อำเภอเสนา จังหวัด อยุธยา) – Located in Ayutthaya province of Thailand, but in a small and sleep town called Sena, is the Joong Borikan (ร้านจุ้ง บริการ The restaurant looks like it’s been completely stopped in time in the last 30 or 40 years, and I’d imagine few things have changed since then.

You can order a variety of different dishes, most having to do with freshwater fish and freshwater prawns, but the ultimate of all dishes is Uncles’ tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง). He starts with soup stock, adds in all the herbs and aromatics, the entire big river shrimp, and the move I like the most is that he actually squeezes in, almost like a tube of toothpaste, another shrimp head – all the fatty flavor of the tomalley. That is the pro move that gives so much taste an flavor to this Thai tom yum soup. #tomyum #ThaiFood

In addition to the Tom yum goong (ต้มยำกุ้ง), we also got, tod man pla krai (ทอดมันปลากราย fried fish cakes), and goong pao (กุ้งเผา roasted shrimp).

He is an amazing man, and his tom yum goong will always be legendary for me. The best I’ve ever had so far in my life.

Total price – 1,280 THB ($41.42)

    Ummm. I love the enthusiasm for everything but it’s a real stretch to say that place is beautiful. It’s filthy and the owner doesn’t know how to crack a smile. There are flies landing on the food. I expected to see rats running across the floor. Food may be good but ambiance is bad.

    Had so much delicious tom yum goong in thailand but not this one.. time to plan my next trip.

    Fyi, not only is there coriander but also diced coriander root.. significant to the broth.
