    Scorpions!: For the adventurous palate

    by blueskyjohn Updated Jul 14, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Thailand is known for some exotic street food. You can definitely find some on Soi Rambuttri. In a few places along the walking street, some vendors walk around with a basket of grilled scorpions on a stick. The vendor is definite In searched of tourist wanted to try the experience. The cost to try one of these scorpions is the equivalent of $5 USD. Very expensive, considering I just had a huge plate of Pad Thai for just over $1 USD!

    Suchrd Pattai: Clean, well prepared and very cheap!

    by blueskyjohn Updated Jul 14, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This street vendor is very popular and well advertised on Soi Rambuttri. I walked past several times and I noticed how clean everything looked. So I decided to stop in for some Pad Thai which I haven't had yet on this trip. The cook makes everything to order. The Pad Thai is made with four different type noodles. You have an option to add only egg (30 baht), chicken and egg (50 baht) or shrimp and egg (50 baht). I chose the chicken and egg pad Thai. There is a small counter directly in front of the cart where I sat. On the counter is slices of lime, fresh cut red chiles and chopped peanuts which you can add for taste.

    This was a very large portion. And it taste great. I like that I can add as much lime as I like. This was one of the better street food experiences I've had. I definite must try when on Soi Rambuttri.

    Chinatown Streetfood: Fresher than most other areas

    by blueskyjohn Updated Jul 14, 2015

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I spent a day wandering around Chinatown and came across quite a few street food vendors. I tried a few and they tasted great. But to me, the food seemed to be more fresh than other areas of Bangkok I have been. Definitely worth trying when your in Chinatown.

    Different stalls: Street of Soi 38 was one of the best thai food!!

    by Jimbo222 Written Sep 12, 2014

    There's a stall/restaurant which grill seafood. We had the grilled fish (seabass). It included the salted grilled fish and salad. Price was just 350 baht and it was really good!!
    There's another stall which is popular for the green papaya salad. For us it was the best som tum we had in Thailand. It had the perfect balance of salty, sour, spicy taste. It was only 50 baht!
    Beside that was a stall selling Satay. For 10sticks it only cost 50baht! Really cheap compared to how much satay costs in Singapore or Malaysia. Also really good.
    There was a restaurant (in thai) which had many dishes and outside of the restaurant they sell and make fried dough. The thai food there was also really good!
    This was our favorite place in Thai food.

    Favorite Dish: Som tum! Best we had among 4-5 other restaurants/locations we had it
    Satay was nice and really cheap!
    Fresh seafood was also good and it was cheap!

    Amazing street food!!

    by Treshi Written Aug 14, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the specialties in Bangkok is the amazingly wonderful street food..I just enjoy them every time I go there. But should ensure that the food is consumed from places where the locals eat and also a bit crowded to make sure that the food is fresh and fast moving... So many varieties to chose from and they taste really good...

    Favorite Dish: Almost all the food that the street vendors sell are really good. I love the meat noodle soup ...

    Huatake night market: More delicious street food!!

    by pfsmalo Written Mar 31, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Instead of eating at the hotel we went for a walk around the night market close by. After spending an hour we came across the food stalls. Bought some lovely caremelised pork, rice and a few bits and bobs like fresh pineapple that we asked to be cut up into eatable pieces. Down at one end of the market there are a few tables and benches under cover where we could sit and eat. Spent about 7€ for the 4 of us (without the beer).

    Lek and Rut.: Delicious Prawns.

    by pfsmalo Written Mar 29, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Read about this place on a hotel tip somewhere. Just on the first corner of Yaowaraj road if you come from the Shanghai Mansion to the right. A sit-down and eat place with beer. Not too much room so had to use elbows a bit to get in on a stool. Served up some lovely smelling sea-food next to us so we ordered the delicious large prawns along with a bowl of rice each. Came to a bit more than I expected for street food, but I'm not complaining as they really delicious.

    Street Food, Bangkok, Thailand

    by TrendsetterME Written Jun 17, 2013

    Great taste on each and every corner of the city, the street vendors ... :)

    Fruits, chicken, cold and hot drinks, meat, sausages, eggs, noodles and many more sorts of food available for you day and night on 24 / 7 basis.

    You can just stop and eat anything. If you cruise through Bangkok at night in a kind of gentle astonishment.

    In a city of 100,000 restaurants (maybe twice that if you include street food) you have an amazing and endless choice to dine in a nice way. Enjoy ... :)

    Cha Yen "Thai Iced Tea": Cha Yen Thai Iced Tea!

    by machomikemd Updated Oct 10, 2012

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cha Yen or Cold tea in Thai is their version of Iced Tea since Iced teas are popular around asia (tarik tea of malaysia, pearl milk tea of hong kong, pandanus tea of the philippines, bubble tea of Singapore, etc). It is made from strongly-brewed powdered black tea.

    Other ingredients in the powder vary, but may include added star anise, tamarind or red and yellow food coloring, and sometimes other spices as well. This tea is sweetened with sugar and condensed milk and served chilled. Evaporated or whole milk is generally poured over the tea and large numbers of crushed ice before serving. And it is never mixed prior to serving as to add taste and for the creamy appearance. Locally, it is served in a traditional tall glass and when ordered take-out, it is poured over the crushed ice in a clear (or translucent) plastic bag.

    Favorite Dish: it is available everywhere and is even peddled by street vendors wherein they put in it big 500 ml plastic glass containers with lots of ice. it cost about 25 Baht a glass but in restaurants, it cost 40-56 baht! try one now!

    more cha yen you can buy instant tea powder at supermarkets! cha yen i love thai iced tea more

    Street Food: Green Curry (Kaeng khiaw waan):

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 15, 2012

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most spicy of all the thai curries is the green curry as they say (the yellow curry is not that spicy and the red curry is a little bit less spicy than the green curry), as the word might suggest it looks green and usually has some vegetables in it that look like small green tomatoes, these you can eat but don't eat the green peas in this curry as they are extremely bitter. I still don't know why they keep adding these things as they are really disgusting but the curry itself is excellent and usually chicken, shrimp, pork or beef is added to it. (costs 60 Baht at Tuk Lae Dee and 45 Baht at Street Stalls and is called Kaeng khiaw waan Kai)

    very spicy Kaeng khiaw waan Kai (Chicken w/ Green Curry!) Green Curry! more spicy green curry chicken menu

    Pad Thai!: Bangkok Street Foods

    by machomikemd Updated Sep 15, 2012

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Pad Thai is the national noodle dish of thailand and there are many variations to it but there have evolved two different styles of Pad Thai: the version most often found in the streets of Thailand, which is relatively dry and light; and the version that seems dominant in many restaurants in the West, which may be covered in a red oil and can be heavy tasting.

    This dish was introduced and made popular as a national dish by Thai Prime Minister Luang Phibunsongkhram during World War II. Pad Thai is one of the best-known Thai dishes.

    Pad Thai Cost 40 Baht at Street Stalls, 55-570Baht at Pratunam Market, 65-80 Baht at Tuk Lae Dee foodland and 120 Baht at Kinnaree Gourmet Thai Restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: the best!
