Yong Lee’s menu is pretty extensive (though the menu card itself was falling apart, and had plenty of corrections and amendments scribbled all over in ballpoint pen); the restaurant serves Chinese, Thai and European food. Skip the European food, and try the Oriental- this place is basically a rice-and-noodle shop, and they’ve got some great stuff. All the usual stir-fries, chicken, seafood, beef and pork- and some more interesting dishes too. We ordered steamed rice, fried chicken with pepper and garlic, and fried wild boar with oyster sauce. The portion sizes were generous beyond expectations, the food well-made; and along with a Coke apiece, all of it came for just 250 baht- great value for money.
Yong Lee’s open from 11.30 in the morning to 8.30 at night, so if you’re planning on having your dinner here, arrive early.
