Sor Bor Lor has been serving Taechew food for 53 years. Originally it was called Somboon Larb, but its Chinese regulars couldn’t pronounce the name, so the owner helped them out by shortening it to the initials S.B.L. In its early years, the restaurant only served up Taechew sukiyaki and khao mun kai. But now, it offers a long list of Taechew and Hong Kong-style food in a glamorous Chinese setting. Best-sellers include the braised abalone, shark fin soup and grilled snowfish with soy sauce. Prices start from B200. Free three-hour parking at Merry King Wang Burapha.
