It may look a little rough around the edges, but this Thai restaurant situated beneath an antique wooden house comes brimming with exciting flavors.
 
Baannual paints a quaint picture of life in Samsen, offering only two tables set amid decorative flower arrangements, rattan birdcages, and a soundtrack that mixes old Thai songs of the '70s and '80s with the crowing of nearby roosters.
 
Sittisak Sakornsin, a freelance food stylist who’s worked for Elle and Wallpaper*, and his sister Yuwarat, a private English tutor, seek out their ingredients at Trok Mor Market each morning to whip up home-style family recipes. 
 
The simple menu spotlights the likes of moo pad kapi (B100), stir-fried pork neck with shrimp paste from Chumporn, and yum dokkajorn (B150), a Thai-style cowslip creeper salad with minced pork and shrimp that's made with boiled coconut cream for a taste reminiscent of yum tua phlu (wing bean salad).
 
Other recommendations include goong pad mun goong (prawns with shrimp head fat, B250) and puu jaa (deep-fried minced pork and crab meat served with sweet plum sauce, B80/piece). 
 
Parking is available at the nearby Nuovo City Hotel. Reservations are recommended, especially on weekends.
