Last weekend my friend and I went to Siam Square and had a chance to have lunch at Plern Pung Restaurant. Actually I walked pass this restaurant several times, but had never eaten there before.
In front of the restaurant, there were pieces of paper showing that this restaurant was featured on newspapers and magazine.
The restaurant was decorated nicely. I loved that they used things that we usually saw in a noodle restaurant to decorate the restaurant.
The light was covered with blanching rice noodle equipment.
The menu was coming in two languages: Thai and English. For me, the price was not expensive.
Here is what we ordered.
Pork noodle soup (59 baht)
Fried chicken spicy egg noodle soup with egg (75 baht)
You can add some chilli powder, sugar, fish sauce, or vinegar with sliced chillies to adjust the flavor to suit your taste.
Vietnamese Style Fried eggs (62 baht)
and drinking water.
The taste of the food was not perfect, but quite OK. The spicy soup was not that spicy, but full-flavored.
There was a machine for calling staff on the table. We could press it for bill too. I was excited with the machine, but it did not work as expected. Finally I had to call staff by myself. 🙁
All in all, I was quite happy with the food and service here. If you are finding a restaurant around Siam Square area, This one could be your choice.
