Pa Tong Go Savoey (Yaowarat)
This is not your usual Pa Tong Go (or Thai donut)! Pa Tong Go Savoey is featured in 2018 Michelin Guide and has been praised as the best Pa Tong Go in Bangkok.
Aside from the typical fried dough, you should also try the charcoal grilled version which is unique to Savoey. The grilled Pa Tong Go is less oily than the fried version and gives out a nice charcoal aroma. Both versions are best eaten with one of the sweet sauces on offer.
