Taitong Delicious Shark Fin Soup, Bangkok…now everyone can enjoy shark fin

Two of the most luxurious foods in the world – Shark Fin and Bird’s Nest – are available in Bangkok at such value price that you don’t have to be mega-rich to enjoy and indulge in it. These expensive delicacies are the finest ways to flaunt your wealth, but here at Taitong, to paraphrase Air Asia, at last everyone can eat shark fin.
The fibrous shark fin is tender and delicate, absorbing the subtle flavours of other ingredients in the steaming claypot of broth. The soup was thick and rich with a deep, earthy and almost fungal flavour. Yet, it was unmistakably shark-flavoured.
Taitong opens in the evening and stays open till late at night. It is a stall lined at the sidewalk in Chinatown in soi Charoenkrung 46, Bangrak, very close to the Shangri-la hotel. Though it’s at the roadside, it’s safe as it is in a lesser traffic lane and probably with less pollution.
That was the good news. And here’s the even better news: Price range from 400 baht for a pot which is good for two. This is the true truthas I say it as it is…
