Bangkok: Non-incendiary recommendations?

Indy 67 | Feb 4, 2008 02:57 AM

We'll be visiting Bangkok later in the year so I've been reading this board with great interest. The dominant trend is for people to seek authentically Thai-hot food. I even read a post about a person briefly going deaf from the heat of the food. Scoff if you need to, but that's not a life-goal of mine.So, what dishes should a Chowish visitor eat while in Bangkok that don't involve incendiary levels of chilis? Where -- restaurants to hawkers' stalls -- will I find the best examples of truly authentic dishes that don't involve physical pain along with culinary pleasure?

Thanks!
