Prachak

A century-old roast duck specialist that still delivers the goods.

Publish Date: 17 October 2019

With its glistening ducks hanging in the window, you know you’re in for a treat at this humble shop-house.

Prachak is the OG of Charoenkrung’s Cantonese roast duck specialists (and there are quite a few), but it shows no signs of slowing down.

Open for over a century and run by third-gen owners, the restaurant serves up sharing plates of succulent roasted duck and pork among other Thai-Chinese dishes, all at pocket-friendly prices.

Be sure to order a plate of rice or noodles to soak up all that glorious sauce.

How to get there: From S@S Bangkok, your best bet is to catch a taxi. The ride should cost no more than THB100 and take about 15 minutes. Alternatively, catch the BTS at National Stadium station to Saphan Taksin, after changing at Siam, and explore the historical Charoenkrung neighbourhood. A single-journey pass will cost THB40. Prachak is about four minutes' walk from Saphan Taksin station.
