There are several things on the menu at Pe Aor Tom Yum Kung Noodle, but most make the culinary pilgrimage for their outrageously indulgent tom yum, the classic spicy and sour soup packing some serious seafood including a whole rock lobster.

While every tom yum is different, the basics are the same regardless of where you dine, a tripod of lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal ginger. Without these, it simply isn't tom yum. Thai chillies, tomatoes, lime juice and fish sauce are also important elements. Then there's the seafood. Most often prawns are used, but Pe Aor Tom Yum Kung Noodle excels with their over-the-top seafood feast of squid, fish, prawns, mussels and a whole lobster. It's easily the best tom yum in Bangkok, if not in Thailand.

As you can imagine, it's not cheap. But hovering between 1000-1500 THB (about US $32-48) it isn't bad value, particularly when you consider that the enormous bowl can easily be shared between several people. If that's a bit rich for you, fear not because there are plenty of more reasonably priced seafood tom yums on the menu.

You'd think the surroundings would match the opulence of the dish, but it's served in a typical shophouse somewhat modernised with air conditioning and plastered with large framed pictures of the food and photos of their customers and staff.

Other than Mondays and public holidays when they are closed, they are usually open between 10am and 9pm every day.

What to order

This culinary mecca is best known for its lobster tom yum soup and while its excellent, don't be put off going if you're alone or it's punching over your budget. The other tom yums may not be quite as extravagant, but they are no less good and include combinations of pork ribs, eggs, fresh river prawns, minced meat, squid and fish.

Other notable favourites on the menu at Pe Aor Tom Yum Kung Noodle include the yum woonsen talay, a mixed seafood salad with glass noodles, celery leaves and sliced onion dressed in lime juice and fish sauce. Or khao goong rad sauce man pu, a sliced river prawn slathered in brown, buttery head meat of a crab and several stir-fried seafood plates wok-cooked in chilli paste.
