Bangkok is known as the ultimate haven for foodies, especially street food lovers. Whether your favorite food is spicy, sweet, savory, or a mix of flavors, Bangkok has a wide variety of street food dishes that offer all of these flavors and more - so much so that you can't have just one serving at each place.
This is a guide to Bangkok's street food restaurants that you really shouldn't miss while visiting the Land of Smiles.
1、Pork "Mountain" Soup - Maeklong Noodle & Leng Sap
For those who crave spicy food, Maeklong Noodle & Leng Sap at Jodd Fairs should be the first restaurant you visit. The restaurant's signature dish is a big bowl of spicy soup and a heaping helping of pork backbone served over hot rice. We don't think this will fill you up unless you order more than one bowl of rice. The spicy pork backbone soup comes in four sizes, each of which feeds a different person. Maeklong Noodle & Leng Sab also serves other spicy dishes such as Larb Moo, Stir Fried Morning Glory and Som Tum.
Opening hours: 11am to 12am
Address: Rama IX Rd, Huai Khwang, Bangkok 10310
2、Frozen Egg Yolk Coconut Ice-cream -Ni-Ang Nam Kaeng Sai
With the year-round heat in Thailand, a better way to beat the heat than a glass of ice water is a bowl of sweet ice cream. At Ni-Ang Nam Kaeng Sai, a stall in Talat Phu sells a variety of frozen desserts. The highlight of the menu here is the frozen egg yolk coconut ice cream. Ni-Ang's egg yolks are said to have an extremely rich and oily texture that surprisingly complements the sweet ice cream. The dessert stand also offers a variety of frozen desserts, such as bokkia and shaved ice, with a variety of toppings.
Opening hours: 4pm to 2am
Address: PFCH+52W, Talat Phlu, Thon Buri, Bangkok 10600
3、Stir-fried Oysters - Heng Hoi Tod Chaw Lae Thailand
They say Pad Thai is the signature dish of Thailand, but only a few people know that Pad Thai is actually part of the duo. This southern Thai-style street restaurant is known for its crunchy oyster pancakes and vegetables. The oysters are fried in a spicy sauce, which will tantalize your taste buds, and the difference in the crispy cakes they are made in. The restaurant also serves a meatier pancake with seafood cheese. This dish consists of fresh shrimp, oysters, mussels, calamari and crab sticks piled on a crispy pancake with cheese in the center and served hot with a spicy red sauce.
Opening hours: 10am-10pm
Address: 314, Soi Chokechai 4 Rd., Lat Phrao, Wang Thonglang, Bangkok 10310
4、Premium stuffed wontons - Wonton Here Lhor
If you think the ravioli at 7-11 is too small to satisfy your appetite, we suggest you head to Wonton Here Lhor, where the ravioli is upgraded and upsized. This stand offers large ravioli with a variety of premium fillings - shrimp, crab steak, salted egg, salmon and shrimp - that you will rarely find at other restaurants. Each piece is filled with one of the above fillings. In addition to these high quality choices, you can also try their additional premium ravioli fillings such as crab claws, sea urchin, flying fish roe, and prawns.
Opening hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm (closed Sunday)
Address: Phahonyothin Rd, Khlong Nueng, Khlong Luang District, Pathum Thani 12120 Wonton
